    If you’ve been affected by a mental health issue, help and support is available. BBC Action Line:
    Since Nadiya Hussain won Bake Off in 2015 she’s rarely been off our screens. But behind the scenes Nadiya suffers from extreme anxiety and debilitating panic attacks, which she’s had since childhood. For decades, she has kept her anxiety a secret, ashamed to speak out.
    She’s never had a proper diagnosis but thinks she has an anxiety disorder, and with around 5 million people suffering from the condition in the UK, Nadiya is not alone.
    Nadiya wants to find out if her anxiety was something she was born with, fearing she might pass it onto her children. At Kings College London, Nadiya hopes groundbreaking research into the role of genetics and environment on anxiety disorders can give her the answers she needs.

    Well done Nadia* Thank you for sharing with everyone. Great empathy! The catastrophic mistreatment you suffered was never acceptable on any level whatsoever. Having physical being on a physical plain is also to be affected, all be it unwillingly. Love - the greater spirit of our real connection - helps us through. May you always be safe. Sending you a lift, ever*** And also to any who would care to see it* Ange.

    I have bad anxiety, it has gotten worse, to the point where I struggle to talk to others. I also get severe paranoia.

    I always thought her voice was very shaky like she’s just been crying or about to cry, it’s like the anxiety within comes out in her speaking voice

    I dont think its that simple the way this portrays. It's far more complex. I feel this will minimise what people go through and just make it like we should just try over it. I didn't like did not help me at all.

    Watching this set me into full panic attack I have really bad axienty and the thing that sets me off is not knowing where I am going so cars I hate I will scream just to get away but my friends and family make me stay and I freak out really bad multiple times then I am fine but I love long car rides but hills, edges, gravel, music, and having windows down set me off but relizing the situation that no one would put me in a bad spot and I am aware and safe which takes a hot minute I am fine

    I have anxiety and panic attacks when I go whit the metro or when I'm in a store. It helps me alot to don't gif a shit what other people (stranger's) in public thinks anymore. I go to sit on the floor where I'm and wait when it's over. Nobody can do something to help me I have to do it my self. Lucky I'm on this point and I almost don't get it anymore. I try to talk whit people about this to let them understand it more. I'm happy that nadiya speaks about this. Nobody should feel alone.

    I am disappointed that I don't think the BBC has carried this on to a sensible conclusion. She has agreed she has 'situation safety behaviour' but at the end she seems to just be left to get on with it... she was already doing this and told it wasn't helping but given no helpful alternative...

    That's the thing I don't think neurotypicals understand - anxiety is automatic intrusive thoughts that are intense, repetitive and relentless. It's not something that can be stopped from happening just by saying "oh just stop worrying". You have to very intentionally tell yourself to stop listening to a voice that sounds exactly like the voice that also tells you something as benign as "I need to shower". And it takes so much intentionality and so much energy and I have incredible admiration for those of us who do it every single day.

      I can stop myself sometimes, and then sometimes I make myself sick from worrying. Wellbutrin helps, but sometimes it doesn’t matter

    With someone who has lived with this for 16years. I applaud her for putting herself out there and doing it. We are the people that present ourselves as fine because we feel we have to be for others.

    I have only recently admitted to myself that i have anxiety. Its held me back from doing anything with my life... I literally dont feel as if I've grown into an adult, as I've avoided having so many life experiences, e.g higher education and work...and I dont know how to change it. So I'm stuck in a shitty marriage coz I dont think I can do anything else

    White Straight males have their voices put down, censored on media,
    Conservatives are being labelled fascist and hoax crimes occur to portray them as bad.
    Insecure people who worry about the safety of their country regarding the rising crime rates and terrorist threats are being labelled “islamopohobes”.
