We are proud to announce that this month’s Cybersmiler of the Month Award winner is Normal People actress Daisy Edgar-Jones, who joins a growing list of winners which includes the likes of Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Jesy Nelson to name a few!

Daisy has been chosen as an award winner for her incredible courage in speaking out publicly about her personal struggles with anxiety, hypochondria and facing rejection.

In sharing details of her challenges online, Daisy has shown us a great example of how the internet can be used to raise awareness of important issues while also reminding people, who may be affected by potentially debilitating mental health problems, that they are not alone – and that there is help available to them.

Daisy recently talked openly online about her battle with hypochondria, which she felt was in part due to the anxiety she faced with doing auditions and the associated feelings of being rejected after many castings.

“I auditioned and I got close and I found that they induced anxiety and I really struggled for a while. When I feel anxious it comes out in different ways from me and one of the ways is hypochondria.”

She also spoke about how hypochondria, or health anxiety, can cause sufferers to obsess over their bodies, overthinking about things such as digestion and the heartbeat, or even hydration – which she had herself. Daisy described how in one instance she become anxious drinking a bottle of water, saying, “It is just that placebo effect where if you imagine stuff enough you start to feel it.”

The Normal People actress is among many sufferers of anxiety-related problems, and thanks to her bravery in sharing details of her own battles publicly – she is giving others reassurance that they are not alone in their struggles.

Everybody at Cybersmile wants to say thank you to Daisy for inspiring others who are struggling and we also want to send out a huge congratulations for being awarded the completely deserved Cybersmiler of the Month Award for May!
