Paranoia

I remember when I was so paranoid, I'd board up all my windows and tape cardboards, posters, and even pieces of clothing to any hole in the wall... It was so crippling that I lost my sense of reality, I felt that the whole world was against me, until I was driven to watch my life from afar, because I was so scared every second of the day. All I cared about was how to defend myself. I'm certainly alright now, but I will always associate the word 'paranoia' with such tormenting, indescribable horror and pain.

I thought of a thousand macabre ways to depict that horror in my life, but I ended up with this.

I've felt a bit like that, an almost indescribable fear of everything, and the compulsion to block out the outside world as much as possible in an attempt to minimise the horror. I like how you've portrayed in as rectangles within rectangles, that feeling of the walls closing in, it really captures a sense of feeling trapped.
Glad you're alright now though x
