“I felt so hopless and so stuck that I just wanted to do something to make enough money to get by, and I wanted to not do something that triggered me to have huge panic and anxiety attacks. I wasn’t even looking to do something fulfilling, because I thought anything that was fulfilling would take a lot of effort and I had to be really energized, and I just didn’t see myself being able to do that, and I didn’t have a lot of hope that I ever would.
It was about 30 years that I was aware that I needed help, and I was trying to get help. I didn’t know there were other things besides talk to a therapist, so that’s what I did. I decided to try something new.
I started working with Shannon, and the total time that we worked together having weekly or twice weekly sessions was about six months, and that was it. That was it. My life was completely different at the end of that time. Its been about a year since then, and I’m doing better and better.
I really never would have thought I would have the courage to ask people to get involved in something I created. That’s actually what I’m doing. It really goes beyond what I was even hoping for when I started working with Shannon.
I just wanted to stop being so anxious and so depressed, and maybe be a little bit more productive, and what’s unbelievable to me is that productivity is almost not an issue. I have this huge energy and confidence. Its just a matter of choosing between the many things that I want to do and love to do. When I focus on something I am enrolling other people to help me, support me, get involved, do it with me. I just never thought I would be in that roll. I really never dreamed that I had that in me. It feels great, and its a surprise!
Definitely I would recommend working with Shannon. It was the turning point in my life, and my life has turned around in ways that really go beyond my fondest dreams, and are so much better than I allowed myself to even hope for, and yeah, Shannon was the catalyst for all of that.”
