Years ago, I was:
1. Afraid to be left alone, in fear of having another epileptic seizure.
2. Hiding in the toilets at school through the anxiety of speaking in class.
3. Throwing phones across the room in frustration at being unable to say my own name.
4. Feeling worthless due to bullying – both physical and verbal.
5. Devoid of self-confidence, self-esteem or ambition in my young life.
