Lilli's Story

As far back as I can remember, I have always had some form of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. When I was younger my family and I referred to it as my ‘habits’ that I would do – close every single drawer and cupboard in the house, check under my bed and out the window a certain amount of times each night before I went to bed, say ‘love ya’ to my family every time they left the house, etc etc.

Jill's Story

Outwardly I appear to have it all together (always smiling and usually happy), but inwardly it’s like I’m dying. I have panic disorder and to a lesser extent agoraphobia and OCD. I am now in my fifties and my family have no idea I suffer from these things (I feel too ashamed to admit to them). The panic disorder got so bad at one stage that I couldn’t do normal things like go to a supermarket or the cinema or even go for a walk. If I have to go somewhere unfamiliar to me i will make any excuse not to go.

Elle's Story

When I was 17 years old, someone close to me, told me that I had put a lot of weight on and that I needed to be careful or else no one would love me. When I was 18 years old, I developed a very serious eating disorder and one which would follow me for longer than I could have ever wanted. When I was 19, I met someone who I thought was the love of my life. As time unfolded, I was in the most toxic situation I could have ever imagined.
