Photo taken by a woman who has suffered from depression, anxiety and panic disorder for many years. It has affected her whole life and family. She is trying to fight through it by working with doctors, using medication as needed, and immersing herself in her photography.
About this photo: “This photograph was taken several years ago in the Outer Banks, NC. This was one of the last fun trips I remember before my depression-induced crash. The memory stands out like a beacon of light. A reminder that I can be functional, travel, and actually have some fun. And that although I may feel like I am lost in rough seas right now, a lighthouse may be just ahead to guide me to safe shores.“
