Epic fucking win. Can you do one for Bi Polar, PTSD or ADHD? (I'm cursed with all three)

This is just wonderful. From my first look it demonstrates perfectly the feeling of anxiety, It shows how you're burning inside and how much you are afraid of it or rather How you are afraid of it. Then I read your story about this image, and I almost get the meaning of it. Also the story struck me, because I'm going through a very similar moment right now and it gave me more courage to deal with my problems and to continue my life in a better way. Bravo beethy, to you and to the model too! You have a new great fan now.
sorry for the bad english.

This isn't just any anxiety, this is a rich, existential, not-chemically-induced, personal anxiety! Good on ya! 10/10
