Story

These Mountains that you are carrying, you were only supposed to climb

Just over 8 million people in the UK, that's 1 person in 10, suffer from an anxiety disorder. I am one of those. I had a wonderful broadcasting career, a dream job, but I was really suffering. I was fine being 'radio' me, but ' what if people didn't like non radio me ?' The easy solution was to not go out. Many years later I had my daughter and alongside juggling running a business and looking after her, I was slowly retreating again. Cue several house moves ( we are a military family) and I knew I needed some help. I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression.... from that day on things got easier. For YEARS I had no idea that what I was experiencing was anxiety, I didn't realise that avoiding going out, feeling sick for days before having to do something new, feeling detached from reality and living with constant butterflies in my stomach was anxiety. As soon as I knew I could make a plan for learning to live with it and that's what I have been doing ever since.

I want to help other people have the aha moment that I did. On Friday 2nd April I am going to be 'virtually' climbing Mount Everest. I have 100 km to conquer ( Lukla, via base camp to the summit of Everest) and I'll be doing this by running, indoor cycling and outdoor cycling. Via my social media channels I am looking to gather 100 stories of anxiety... your stories of what anxiety feels like for you and how you manage it. I hope that this might help, even just one person, to change their life by understanding themselves a bit better.

Alongside, mediation, fitness, eating properly and a non negotiable sleep routine, I also find getting outdoors and climbing real mountains really helps me, which is why I LOVE what Joe's Giants are doing and I want to support them to be able to do more.

Please help in whatever way you can,

Sarah M x

    Wow everyone, thank you so much for helping us smash our target. already. I am absolutely getting nervous now but equally really excited for Friday. I'll be popping videos on my social media platforms as I progress ... you can find me on @maltloafandmeditation on Instagram and Sarah McEntee on Facebook. Your donations mean so so much... for me it feels like an acknowledgement that I'm ok and that its ok to be wading through mind treacle ... often. Sarah X
