C.S.’s Anxiety Monster

Inspired by illustrator Toby Allen’s “mental illness monsters,” Chelsea created a multi-colored anxiety monster to describe her experiences living with her illness. She writes: “He is many colors and the colors change representing how each day my illness manifests differently. He can sit on my shoulder, always able to peck at my ear and bug me like my illness does with intrusive thoughts and negative emotions. His head is stuck to one side, giving him a distorted view of reality. He is bird-like, but flightless, representing how difficult my illness makes it to stay motivated to move forward in life.”
