So, I’m a recovering anxiety sufferer. I’ve been living with a diagnosed anxiety and a panic disorder since 2012, and what a rollercoaster it’s been. In that time, I’ve been through two rounds of CBT therapy, and finally feel like I’m getting somewhere. I’m very private about my fight with anxiety, but have decided that in order to help myself, I need to speak and hopefully my fight to recovery will help inspire someone else. On this journey I’ve been connected to a lot of people who approach me for help and advice which in some ways seems to help. If it does, I have anxiety for a reason, and that reason is to help other people.
The journey to recovery isn’t an easy one, but one thing I always tell myself even at breaking point:
“If you’re going through hell, keep going”
