Richard, 30. Anxiety and Panic attacks.

"I didn’t feel like myself. I’m a very rational person, so when my body and mind reacted to the smallest accident or mistake in such a crippling manner, it was totally alien and against what I knew...which made me feel even worse."

Amy, 23. OCD

"I thought OCD was just about handwashing. I remember coming across an article in a magazine a few years after it started and feeling a rush of relief to know that this was a ‘thing’ – that I wasn’t the only one who had these thoughts or did these things."

"I thought I was going to die or go totally insane. It was terrifying. I wish I could go back in time and reassure myself that I would be ok."

Kieran, 35. Bipolar Type 1.

" During manic episodes, which were predominant, I remember feeling as though I was watching myself, but was unable to control what I was doing. I had, and still have, feelings of invincibility."
