I'm Courtney, 26 and from Australia
I've been suffering anxiety since I was about 10, some years are better then others and having one of those bad years again.
My grandma, dad and mum all had/have bad anxiety too.
I go through stages where I think I'm dying and the last few months whenever I eat I feel like I'm going to choke on my food. It doesn't help that I did choke on lamb earlier this year.
My husband works shift work and whenever he's on afternoon shift I have a panic attack because he's not around, it's starting to affect his life just as much as mine.
I'm so sick of feeling like this, I know it's all in my head yet I can't stop it.
Just wanting to live a normal life. I feel I missed out on all the fun times as a teenager because of my anxiety.
So hoping this forum gives me the support and knowledge to finally kick anxietys butt.
