The Erstwhile Daisy

Putting feelings into words was never easy for me. People use idioms to explain emotions; “a torpedo of emotions”, “the pit in my stomach”, “head over heels” while these are substitutes there are still some feelings that are indescribable.

Living with dyslexia and CAPD (a central auditory processing disorder) has made it difficult to communicate my experiences. Self-portraiture is a way to navigate my feelings before they boil over and manifest into rage or hurt. By channelling these emotions I am able to document specific moments in my life that I am unable to verbalize. Confronting my past allows me to process and grieve my former self, letting go of what once was in order to embody the present.
