Hi all, welcome to my blog! 

I posted a poll on my Instagram story a few months ago asking whether or not people would be interested in seeing a blog written by me about my mental health and I received an overwhelming response from so many people! I have been thinking about doing this for a while now and have been putting it off because I have been very nervous about publicly sharing my battle with anxiety, extreme paranoia and my panic attacks. However, I have found that the more I open up about my struggles with anxiety, the more I can help others and the more at ease I feel with my own mental health.

Before I started university in 2015, I was completely oblivious to the fact that mental health problems were so widespread amongst young people. I had no idea that most teenagers like me felt the same way I did. From the ages of 14 to 18, I kept my problems to myself in the fear that my family and friends would judge me for it. I just kept quiet and got on with it. It is now, years later, that I realise that this is absolutely not the case. Since I have started sharing my experiences with anxiety and panic attacks, I have received nothing but support, encouragement and love from so many and it makes me wish that I started talking about it sooner! Having anxiety whilst studying at university has been challenging for me but has been made infinitely easier by the people around me who act as a constant support system. 

I decided to start writing this blog because I know how comforting it can be to see that others feel the way you do. I know it won’t reach or be read by many people, but if it helps at least one person, then it will be worth it!    

This is going to be a space for me to post about how I have coped with anxiety so far in my life and maybe obstacles I face on a day to day basis, but more than that, it is a space that will hopefully help me track my progress and keep me motivated to overcome my fluctuating mental health. And maybe this will even become a place where other people can come to know that they are not alone. 

Anyway, I hope you enjoy my posts and that they are beneficial to some. Please feel free to leave a comment down below or message me on one of my social media accounts if you want to see certain content or if you just need someone to talk to. Alternatively, the charity Mind is available to call on 0300 123 3393 or text on 86463. There are some other charities to call listed on my Contact page or you could visit the NHS website. 

Thank you for all the immense support so far and I am really excited to see the potential of my blog!
