Everything I Left Behind

Everything I Left Behind

By Alexis Dent

Loss. Adversity. Love. Hope. Everything I Left Behind examines these stages in life through Alexis’ perspective as a young woman living with an anxiety disorder. Having developed her disorder in her twenties, Alexis explores the feelings of loss that are experienced when one suddenly has a change in their health and identity.

This journey from loss to acceptance reminds us that even when we are forced to leave aspects of ourselves behind, there is still hope to be picked up along the way.
