Anxiety is something which affects so many people in so many different ways and is a very misunderstood condition, no two people who have anxiety have the same triggers or it affect. For many years Rosie had no idea why she worried so much, felt so anxious in so many situations and struggled with panic attacks, and just thought it was her being me and she didn't find out she had anxiety till she was in adulthood despite struggling since childhood.
Rosie would hate for others to feel alone. She's struggled with anxiety and panic attacks for several years and Mind have always been a very reassuring and helpful charity and helped me when she faced a very difficult time a few years ago.
These events will also be a challenge for us both, and hopefully generate some awareness and understanding to end stigma surrounding mental health and help others feel less alone. Having anxiety has made Rosie more determined to make sure that others don't go through or feel what she has gone though and want to give back and hopefully make a difference.
