45, London
I got extreme anxiety in relation to eating after I had to rush to the loo one lunch break. The anxiety got so bad that I couldn’t eat when out in public places. I would sit at tables in restaurants and have to go to the toilet to calm myself down. I lost about a stone in weight and it really did feel like it was getting a tighter and tighter grip on me. I can only describe it as feeling like I was hanging on the edge of a sink trying to stop the anxiety taking hold and pulling me into the plug hole! I joke but it was awful. I had never experienced anxiety like it even though I was used to feeling ‘nervous’ and out of my comfort zone. This was a very very different feeling.
