I hope you and your family are well.
I wish I could write this in my language since I cannot express myself as well as I want in English, but I will try.
I wanted to contact you for a long time, but I thought I would wait a year from our last appointment.
I feel totally recovered! I am free of anxiety for more than a year. No set backs, no second thoughts, and no doubts.
So, I am writing this email to formally thank you for the work and effort you put in to my personal recovery in the past 3 years. It’s something I hoped for, but I didn’t believe it would ever happen.
I remember vaguely how I used to feel, but I clearly remember how much I didn’t know about anxiety and why it was causing my problems. Thank you for giving me the facts, for teaching me new skills, and for your patience.
I was damaged — as I used to say to you — and my hopes and dreams were broken, I felt miserable, and I avoided everything and everyone. My everyday life was a struggle. I could not drive, have fun, enter closed places, or feel anything!!! I was numb. Even going to work or getting up every morning was difficult. I wanted to just disappear.
With your help, I managed to overcome everything. It took a while, but recovery takes as long as it takes, right?
Through that time, I became a better person. I learned to live out my values, to relax, to accept myself, and how to contain my feelings!!! Remember, I didn’t even know the meaning of containment and how to apply it!!!
Now, I am happily married and have the most wonderful daughter in the world because you taught me to live the life I wanted to have. I feel blessed everyday of my life.
You said to me that it was a privilege to have been working with me. I say that the privilege was mine.
Thank you Amanda Diehl.
