About this submission

When my anxiety peaks I am unable to eat. Even if I am hungry I can’t put anything down or else I will throw. My experience with my anxiety became a metaphor for how I felt in my situationships. While I was worrying about how my actions could be perceived by my partners, they acted without thinking about me at all. We’ve all experienced chasing after unworthy partners. And while that can be disappointing and leave us without closure, my film can provide a deferred experience of twisted catharsis.
