Eruption

For most of my life, I've struggled with what I now know as severe generalized anxiety disorder. Most poeple have experienced anxiety about something in there life, but the thing that sets this disorder apart is the fact that it's seemingly endless- there's not a time in the day that I'm not worried about something. Over the course of the past several years, it's become more difficult to deal with, but I try to keep it hidden as best as I can. This image I've created is essentially a visual representation of what it feels like to have this at times crippling disorder- to have that tremendous pressure building up inside you and trying to keep it hidden as best as you can. As I've learned, though, all that pressure and tension will be released at some point, and it's most certainly not going to be pretty.
