Photos taken by Sara, 23, who has experienced major anxiety and panic attacks. She has lived through mental abuse, physical abuse, and social abuse in her past. More recently, she has been rushed to the hospital three times for severe rapid heartbeat and near loss of consciousness, and was told on all occasions it was due to anxiety. She has since been prescribed Xanax, and is in the process of coming to terms.

About this photo: Too often I felt out of place. There was always something wrong with me, with the way I looked and the way I behaved. I always felt like everybody was better than me. It’s still hard to explain, I was confused and I kept blaming myself for all the misfortunes of my life, I was feeling the weight of the world on my shoulders. I used to lock myself in my room spending whole days in the dark crying and commiserating me. I was anorexic, out of energy, I didn’t feel like going out with friends and I barely talked to them.
