Photo taken by contributor Annie, a woman who lives with anxiety, PTSD, depression and dissociation. She has survived a suicide attempt. Annie copes by walking when able, meditation, yoga, writing, artwork and being with her best friend Rumi, her feline companion.
About this photo: “There are days that anxiety and depression weigh heavy upon you and you wonder if you can get up and make it through the day. Somehow you do. Whether it’s that breath you took that smelled of fresh air, or the tears you finally wept. Tears released after days—weeks of keeping them inside. And that release/relief was enough to open the door to the outside world once again.”
