Let me introduce myself

Hello friends and welcome to my world!

My name is Leo -on my socials I am also known as the Anxious Teacher. I am 26 years old and currently living in the beautiful county of Worcestershire in the UK. Ever since I was 6 years old I have always wanted to be a teacher and after 5 years and 3 degrees later I have finally reached my dream. I have been working in education for three years now and I absolutely love my job, from September 2019 I will be working at this wonderful Independent School for Special Educational Needs.

Apart from teaching I also have other passions as well such as; reading (Sophie Kinsella and Lynsay Sands are my favorite authors), I also love movies (especially Disney – I’ve always wanted to be Belle) and I am also obsessed with Star Wars – I have my own lightsaber, a drawer filled with Star Wars clothing as well as every Star Wars Build-A-Bear ever created.

But despite everything seeming like sunshine and rainbows – in reality its anything but. I have severe anxiety and depression and I often have panic attacks when in large crowds. My Mental Health at the moment has caused a huge breakdown for me, as a result I have lost my in-laws and their respect becuase in their eyes I’m nothing more than a selfish and obnoxious little girl and workwise, my previous empoyler has discriminated against me – forcing me to resign or be left fired as a result of my Mental Health. My Mental Health has led to a decline in my friendships and even destroyed many relationships.

As a result I have decided to take action, I am no longer going to allow my anxiety and negative people rule my life, thereby I am creating this blog as a journey, a way to vent on my behalf about how I am tackling my Mental Health. I don’t have all the answers, nor am I a doctor, but if it helps me it could help you as well. I want to end the stigma surrounding Mental Health and I have officially become a Time To Change Champion 💪🏻 – if you ever need a shoulder to cry on or if you ever just want to chat please contact me, I don’t bite and I’m a good listener.

Not only that, you will often find me contributing to both the MHAP and Need To Live as content bloggers as an Every Day Role Model for Mental Health, Wellbeing and Education.

I hope you respect my story and know that sometimes its ok to not be ok.

Peace and Love to you all ❤
