I should elaborate on my “There is hope” post. Since someone wanted to be a smart ass. For those who follow me and my posts probably knew what I was referring to though. But here is what I meant. I said there is hope because of my own story. I’ve had generalized anxiety disorder and social anxiety disorder since 6th grade. It took my life from me. It took opportunities away from me. Just this year I was about at the point of giving up that it was impossible to recover. I use to barely be able to pay for something at a check out line. Almost every time I was in public and around people I had severe anxiety. Then one day I got tired of having my life be the way it was. I was tired of feeling like a failure. So I said “FUCK IT” and I got off my sad ass and made a sincere effort to try and get a job. I fought my severe fear of the interview process. I went on lots of interviews and gained confidence. Then I got a job. I now have a job where I speak to the general public almost every minute of my day. It gets easier each week. I get better at my job every day. I feel better about myself each day. My goals get bigger and I feel like more is impossible. So yes I tell people with anxiety disorder and depression that there is hope because I beat both of their asses and you can too!!!!
