Outside the lines

My anxiety seems to heighten all my senses, which make my daily tasks difficult because I feel like I'm getting overloaded with information all the time. When it gets to much for me to handle, I'll get a panic attack. This generally happens once or twice a day, but like most people I have good days and bad days. On good days I try and get out of the house to shoot, this project started that way. When I feel good I still feel like my senses are heightened, it makes the places I see almost every day seem unearth like. Probably because my head is free to wander and play. When I dare to be vulnerable and just enjoy myself I truly come alive.

I’d like to show people that although an illness or condition makes you feel (very) limited, it can have positive side effects. You need to be willing to look for them, it’s so easy to get stuck in the bad… But it could change the way you feel about your life considerably. Vulnerability is very important to truly connect with other people, if you aren’t willing to show your vulnerable side you're hiding a big part. We are so easily ashamed, but that only stands in the way of our happiness. I feel my life is more intens and beautiful because of my condition.
