I am 33 years old and I started having mental health issues when I was 15 years of age. It started with anorexia which became bulimia, from this point it was a chain of events- health anxiety, general anxiety disorder, depression and panic attacks. I never felt anyone understood the physical symptoms that overtook me 24 hours a day. In my mid 20s I achieved a diploma in counselling which gave me the tools to learn how to live an (almost) normal life. I am ready to talk about my story and help others- one symptom at a time.
