I cannot physically attend the march in DC because depression and anxiety limit my ability to attend large events. I stand with Planned Parenthood and support equal rights of every gender, race, religion, and orientation. I also want to put an end to the negative stigma surrounding mental illness.
This picture represents my daily struggle with depression and anxiety. I am wrapped in a blanket and being carefully watched over by my dog, Rocket. He goes most places with me because he puts me at ease and acts as a social buffer when I am not feeling well.
