Please welcome first-time contributor Lisa-Marie, a woman who’s experience of living through abuse caused her to have deep emotions, anxiety and panic attacks. The experience caused her to be silent and repress her self-expression for many years.

About this photo: “I’m learning to use photography as a way to express my feelings without verbally expressing that I was victimized. My photographs demonstrate how the abuse still effects me to this day, as I still suffer from panic attacks, anxiety and flashbacks. I’ve documented how I’m trying to heal myself through using photography as a therapeutic method within self-portraiture.”
