Anxiety & Rebirth - Poster

Anxiety & Rebirth - Poster

This illustration aims to portray an anxiety attack, ist no fun to experience anxiety, sadly for many individuals with learning differences this is their everyday life. 
Also, the lighting in the picture is shaped like a phoenix which aims to symbolize that once we are working through the difficult times it’s like being reborn again.
In April 2019 I had a massive anxiety attack because I overworked myself.
But this time was different, I decided to just for once actually sit in it and allow this horrible feeling to rampage in my body. To deal with the consequences of my actions instead of running away. It felt like I split my consciousness in two, one observed the other freaked out.
It was a bizarre feeling like thunderbolts was bouncing around within me, giving flashes of memories every time it hit.
I learned to allot from this experience, I strangely felt content afterwards. I felt like I’ve had to listen to myself and that felt so great even tho I was exhausted.
the biggest thing was that I now quickly notice long before I push myself too far because I recognise the feeling.
I always love learning more about myself and this was super interesting😊
I not long after wrote a poem about it (see below) and this image was inspired by the poem.
Just to be clear, this does not mean that this will work for you, this is something that has taken me years to learn. And this works for me, you have to do you! I am not saying it is easy if anything I am saying the opposite. But you need to know that you can do something about it, nothing needs to be the way it was!
