Photo taken by a contributor in New York City who has suffered from anxiety and panic disorder for at least a dozen years, among other mental health challenges. It has affected her home life, work life, and personal life in many ways. She is trying to fight through it by working with doctors, using medication as needed, and immersing herself in her photography.
About this photo: “I’m often drawn to things that other people think are strange. To me, even objects or moments that may be seen as scary or disturbing, like a used, abandoned, disposable glove in a puddle, can also be seen as beautiful if captured in the right light.
My challenges can make me seem strange or even disturbing at times… I hope that someone stops and sees the beauty in me too.”
