Photo taken by contributor Danielle who has battled severe depression on and off for many years, as well as insomnia, anxiety, panic attacks and more. She enjoys writing and taking photos through her many ups and downs.

About this photo: “I took this photograph of a woman I love dearly. The “veins” were created using photos I had taken of trees during my travels. Some alive, some dead. The combination represents what life with mental illness feels like to me. Sometimes, like nature, it can beautiful, vibrant, and full of life, while other times, it feels like roots are twisted around my insides, constricting me, until I can barely breathe. It also shows how someone’s appearance on the outside, does not always show what is going on inside.
