Amanda, I am just so thankful for you.
Thanks so much. I think things really are getting better. I say that because my ability to manage my feelings and reactions seem to be much more under control. Self-talk is changing, my ability to see things from the outside etc. Again, I don't want to overstate it but I don't want to sell our progress short either. As you suggested I think the process of getting there is what is different which definitely sets the stage for change.
I am just so thankful for you. I really see God working everything together. I am really starting to feel like my own person. Even if that involves risks, changes, etc. It feels really good and I am sometimes afraid it will not last. But I think I am through the wall. My perspective seems quite different! Please know that your life and your work really do help to change peoples lives. What higher calling could you possibly have?
Just remember there are those like me, whom you have helped immeasurably and that your efforts are appreciated more than you may ever know.
I am not the kind of person who ever forgets someone who has been important in my life. For many years to come I will often think of you and give thanks for where God has placed you in life. I find this particularly amazing since we most likely will never meet face to face, yet your work has impacted me so greatly.
The combination of good self-help information and working with an experienced anxiety disorder coach, counselor, or therapist is the most effective way to address anxiety disorder and its many symptoms. Until the core causes of anxiety are addressed - the underlying factors that motivate apprehensive behavior - a struggle with anxiety disorder can return again and again. Identifying and successfully addressing anxiety's underlying factors is the best way to overcome problematic anxiety.
