Each year, two million Aussies suffer from anxiety. This mental health issue is so common yet so misunderstood. It’s not just about feeling worried about something – it’s more powerful emotions than that can affect your physical state too. Feeling stressed and anxious can come on with no warning and can’t be controlled.

To get the conversation started and create awareness, Sarah Fader (@TheSarahFader), 37, the NY-based founder of the mental health nonprofit Stigma Fighters, first sent out a tweet in February about the anxiety she has while waiting for a text-message reply. Adding on the tag #ThisIsWhatAnxietyFeelsLike, hundreds of people got on board, sharing their own personal experiences. Can you relate?
