“This was the first time I told my story for everyone to hear. My story wasn’t an in depth depiction of my situation but sharing some of my fears for all felt good. Also, seeing that many people share the same feelings as I do was comforting that I am not alone. I always knew I wasn’t alone, however the stories on this blog site is like group therapy. Being that I do not always do well in groups, this site is a refreshing alternative. Having accepted my mental illness, I carry on the best I can. I will continue visiting this site to gain further insight from real life experiences by Trish and her Guest Bloggers.” ~ JL
“I’ve often referred to my anxiety as being like a black hole, one that lurks deep within your mind. You’ll have something that you need to say or do and no amount of will power in the world can get it across the boundary of being a thought to being an action. Instead, the anxiety black hole just spins it around and around in your head so that all the thoughts play over and over again. You quite quickly lose sight of when you should say/do something and when you shouldn’t.” ~ Cameron Madden
