Scars: Loss


Symptom 6: Loss of pleasure or interest.

Depression for me is feeling less than human. It is feeling trapped in your own thoughts. It is not being able to vocalize your pain while screaming on the inside. It is utter loneliness while being surrounded by people. It is debilitating and constant. I deal with it by reminding myself that I feel the way I do because of it and carrying on regardless of how low I feel. I deal with it by trying to appear normal.” – Anonymous

Scars is a visual series that is here to express those days where you can’t get out of bed, but mostly for other women to know that they are not alone. You can see the entire series here

Joey is a Ron Swanson wannabe who enjoys the finer things in life. She is a page designer for newspapers that are located on the West Coast. She enjoys her two cats and Chinese food more than most people. Whiskey and wine keep her warmer than sunshine.
