Believe it or not, there truly is life after struggling with crippling anxiety. At one stage, my anxiety was so bad that I would randomly burst into tears at work, and even leaving the house to get to work was an incredible struggle. But now I am able to live my the way I have always wanted. I no longer struggle with social anxiety – I can travel on my own, and I now feel as though I am the controller of my anxiety as opposed to the anxiety controlling me.

Counseling, medication, and setting myself small challenges was what enabled me to get to where I am in my recovery today.
