This is an artistic representation of how it feels to live with generalized anxiety. Given that it is hard to capture on its own, since it is often hidden, I captured how I was feeling in that moment by tying myself up in lights, which illuminates the feeling of being trapped. Feeling constantly stuck and afraid can hinder life's enjoyment. Going out and doing every day activities can be a task when everything makes you worry. It is important to me that I spread awareness and make this disorder known.
