Loss. Adversity. Love. Hope. Everything I Left Behind examines these stages in life through Alexis' perspective as a young woman living with an anxiety disorder. Having developed her disorder in her twenties, Alexis explores the feelings of loss that are experienced when one suddenly has a change in their health and identity. Refreshingly vulnerable and candid, Everything I Left Behind is a diverse poetry collection that is relatable not only to others living with anxiety but to anyone dealing with adversity. This journey from loss to acceptance reminds us that even when we are forced to leave aspects of ourselves behind, there is still hope to be picked up along the way.
