    I'm Chris, I'm 29 and have suffered with anxiety in varying degrees since I was at primary school. I'm currently off work with what is the worst bout of anxiety I've had for 5 years.

    My symptoms include

    A persistent general feeling of anxiousness or nervousness

    Severe insomnia

    Loss of appetite and enjoyment of food

    Short ongoing bouts of depression

    Inability to concentrate, think clearly or have a flowing conversation

    Symptoms of IBS

    Shaky hands

    Loss of rationalisation

    Sometimes I also struggle to go out in public alone during a bout of anxiety.

    Well that's me. I don't take drugs for it and I don't speak about it openly with anyone and except only a by-phone counselling service.

    Most days I can control it until I have a bad patch such as the one I'm in currently and it knocks me for six.

    Well now that's all out there.. Thanks for reading.
