Photo taken by contributor Danielle, a woman in New York who suffers from anxiety and panic attacks, and has been agoraphobic over the past year.
About this photo: “From the high vantage point at which I took this photograph, Manhattan and the clouds above looked like a masterpiece created by a painter. I think this particular capture sums up my feelings about NYC right now. Very mixed. It’s grand, majestic, inviting and beautiful, but also can be scary and ominous, especially when my anxiety is high and I don’t like being around a lot of people or noise. It feels like something bad is always just about to happen. I hope the clouds clear for me, so I can get to a place where I feel comfortable in this masterpiece of a city once again.“
