Time to Change campaign

After reading Trips blog with the 'time to change' campaign, I decided to 'sign the wall', upload my pic and stop being ashamed of having this awful condition... So here I am loud and proud.....Its TIME TO CHANGE.... Break down the walls and accept who I am....

So my first name is Kerry.... and here I am.....

Wishing everyone peace and happiness...

Its quite liberating standing up and saying 'what the hell'...... arent those people the lucky ones who dont have to live with this every day.... so b@@@@@ks to the stigma!!

Hi Kerry,

I have only just joined this site, I loved what you wrote, I've had issues with anxiety and panic attacks for maybe 10 years, but only admitted i had a problem maybe 2 years ago, then in the last 12 months I started researching it, 2 main things I've learnt is 1 knowledge is key and 2 the day I said out loud to friends, family, teachers, doctors etc, that I have panic attacks was the day I started to recover, as releasing this dark embarrassing secret took such a weight off my shoulders! It was so empowering to start to fight back. I still dread certain situations but I will get there in the end!!

Hi Ashh

I totally understand what you are saying and think you're totally right. It was quite liberating saying 'you know what b@@@@@ks to the stigma'......

And also its important to remember its our thoughts and attitude that causes half of the problem, I'm reading alot of self help books, currently reading a book on Cognitive behavioral therapy, a positive attitude goes a long way, and don't forget my fav little fact, anxiety normally affects people with above average intelligence with great creative minds! Imagine our potential when we get our anxiety under control!
