This Zine Has Issues #2 (ANXIETY): Breaking the Stigma of Mental Illnesses

by Dave Combs Author

A collection of creative work about one of the worst feelings in the world: anxiety. More than an unpleasant emotion, anxiety for these authors and artists is in many cases a condition that defines and limits daily life. Read about the effects of anxiety on everyday life, an experience in intensive outpatient therapy, what it's like to have a panic attack, a situation where Dave helped Holly through a panic attack, told from each of their perspectives, reflections on anxiety in the time of COVID-19, and evocative art and poetry that take you further into the conversation. Read this if you're looking for others' experiences to validate your own, or if you know someone with an anxiety or panic disorder and want to better understand what life's like for them.
