Mel's Story

My name is Mel and I use my anxiety as my ‘superpower’. About a year ago I suffered panic attacks and had a really tough time. My world felt like it was crashing down. I was dizzy, had back and neck pain, felt insecure and paranoid, lost my confidence, scared, worried and would google all my symptoms (which made me feel worse). I will never forget the fear I felt during this time, wondering what is wrong with me?

Anna's story

My story is not one I would call extraordinary but it’s one I am proud to tell. Growing up I’ve always been quite shy, low in confidence, I smoked, drank a lot, ate the wrong foods and always had issues in my head about my body. I guess just like most teenage girls, I dreamt of finding the love of my life, having kids and living happily ever after.

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.

Brittany's Story

I don’t even know where to start! I have never really shared my story to anyone because it still feels so fresh, so new! I remember every detail like it was yesterday. It all started in 2016 my sister and her partner had just gotten together and I met a whole bunch of his friends at a house party, I remember feeling so alive, happy and free spirited.
