How it all started

I was discriminated against by an employer when I got my first paid job and I got clothes thrown at me and got shouted at when I didn't complete certain tasks on time and ended up with really bad anxiety issues cause of it which to this day I am still dealing with and that happened two years ago.

What I did to try to overcome it

Upset, anxious and ended up having panic attacks and felt I let certain people down and still to this day I deal with the issues that I had from it.
