Last week, I was lucky enough to be invited down to Ecclesall Road to Craft & Dough to try out their new Introduction to Pizza Class. Upon arrival we were greeted with a drink and led upstairs to where the event was being held. Making Pizza!

When Mel from Inside Melly’s Mind developed a precoccupation with her health, she wasn’t sure what was going on. Here she talks about her experience of health anxiety and gives tips for getting support. Back in 2010, I was just a regular student. My health was good.
