I began to realise something was wrong during the second lockdown of the Covid pandemic. I started to feel nauseous from anxiety and felt very uncomfortable in my own skin.
I reached out for help because I was scared that if I didn’t tell someone about the anxiety and depression, it would build up to a point where I couldn’t control my actions and I would end up in a place I did not want to be.
I started my support sessions with Eikon and found that being able to speak to someone about the emotions overwhelming me and having someone give their time and patience was incredibly comforting. I didn’t feel judged. Instead I felt relieved. That was now a year ago and, through support, I am coming to understand how to overcome the problems that sometimes take over me. I am much happier than I have been in a long while.
