A for Anxiety

A couple of weeks ago I shared on Instagram that the wheels had well and truly fallen off. I was feeling anxious, depleted, lacking motivation and all kinds of emotional. If you didn’t catch it or you've always wondered what I look like when I cry, here it is.

I received so many messages and emails from people who read it, resonated and confided in me the struggles they were facing in their own personal lives.
