Scars: Anxiety


Symptom 1: Constantly feeling anxious, sad or empty.

“Whenever I am depressed I feel like I'm in a glass bubble. No one can hear me no matter how loud I scream but everyone can see me and they just don't do anything about it. I feel trapped. The only thing that seems to work is listening to Beyoncé. She makes me feel like the strong and fearless woman that I know I am. Depression is a real thing that should never be ignored or overlooked. Women are suffering so we must remind them that they, too, are strong and fearless." -Anonymous
