It may sound strange but I am so proud of myself. Since I was about 4 years old I have suffered from major anxiety attacks and depression due to alot of horrible stuff that happened to me. Its been a struggle for years since my mom never knew how to deal with me and couldn't afford therapy. I also struggled with cutting and an eating disorder. Its actually amazing im still alive if you want to know the truth. Anyways this past October I had a major break down and my family kind of did an intervention and took me to a clinic that was for people without insurance. After getting out of there I was refered to group therapy five days a week along with personal therapy sessions once every other week and three different meds.

I feel great. For the first time in my 20 years I wake up and don't feel like I don't want to be here. I can handle confrontation much better and my temper is near non existent. And most importantly I have gone from a girl who used to sob and I mean SOB two to three times a day to a girl who hasent cried in months aside from tearing up reading a book lol. I am so SO happy because I finally feel like I am slowly but surely healing. My social anxiety is something that is taking a bit more work but im getting there. I just love waking up and feeling good and calm. I finally feel like I am thinking clearly and its wonderful. I would say my new year is starting off great :D.

Sorry if this post was heavy but I just wanted to share :D.

You should be very proud of yourself. And I think it's a big step even telling us these private things about yourself. Good luck to you!
