Drowning out of water

Taken days after my family dog of 13 years died, I felt like I was drowning. I didn't know how to deal with this loss or mourn this death. After all, I'd never lost a pet before, not like this. I spent a lot of time alone in the tub and decided to use my emotion to my advantage and take some pictures of myself in my distraught state.
