Photo taken by a woman in North Carolina who has been suffering from a major depressive episode for the past two years. She also suffers from anxiety and panic disorder. It has been an extremely difficult few years, but she is fighting to recover for the important people in her life.
About this photo: “This photograph was taken several years ago in the Outer Banks. It was a lovely trip, packed with great food and fun activities. But the whole time there were dark storm clouds brewing. Clouds that felt like they could break at any time and douse us. This was the last fun trip I took before I crashed and the storm of my depression took hold. An enjoyable trip, but one that foreshadowed the difficult times to come.”
