ANXIOUS: SAVING MY SELF FROM MY BRAIN is the story of a childhood and adolescence colored by depression and anxiety. In raw, personal moments, the memoir explores how untreated psychological problems impact a developing mind, and can affect a young person’s ability to identify their place in the world. In adulthood, Karen Veazey's conditions progressed into serious eating disorders, and eventually a form of obsessive-compulsive disorder which led her to check herself into a psychiatric hospital. Finally, with professional psychiatric care, at age thirty, her life began to make sense.
