Thank You EHA For Being There
I have had mental and emotional problems since I was young. Through the years things progressed, anxiety, feeling angry inside, and nervous all the time.
I came into the program after being in the mental ward in my 30's, after a couple of weeks of being there. I have been through many things in my life, such as being on mental wards, and even in jail for my anger and rage. I suffered severe depression for many years after High School.
STRENGTH AND HOPE
"My Life. Really?"
The other day, I was talking to my sister, who at the time
thought she was going to need to go back in for a third breast
cancer surgery. In trying to console her and help her with
her decision whether or not she should go with the doctor
that recommended the surgery, I told her "it's your life,
you can do whatever you want to do." I realized when
I said that, I felt one of those twinges I get when I know
Out of Control
A Member Shares Her Story
It seems like I've always struggled
with emotional problems ever since I was young. I always felt
awkward & self conscious around people. As I grew into
my teens those feelings got stronger. It seemed like everyone
around me had more confidence than me.
I felt bad about that and even angry.
Quiet Desperation Blossomed into Peace and Serenity
As young as I can remember, I never felt like I fit it. I felt, inadequate with underlining fear. Deep down inside I knew something was off kilter. When you grow up in a family, you think it is normal in some strange way; however, as I progressed through my years, I knew it was anything but "normal".
