Positive Spin Part One!

Just a quick tidbit of positivity for a Saturday evening...

This is just an excerpt from a discussion I had about medication for anxiety. I suddenly got the urge to share because I realized how much this helped me when I was in this person's shoes...

The medicine just helps to make it easier not to have anxiety or depression (ideally), but there's no "magic pill." You also have to change the way you live and the way you think. It's a tough challenge, but I think you'll end up feeling like a better and stronger person when you get through it. I mean really, as depressing as all of it can be at the bottom (I know, I've been there...), seeing how HUGE of an obstacle it all seems now... just about every test you're put up to in your life AFTER anxiety/depression will seem like a walk in the park. You've lost your life, but you're going to get it back. And when you do you're going to have so much more appreciation for it. The first panic/anxiety-less day will seem brighter, happier, and more full of possibilities than any day before... Sorry, I did not intend for my reply to be so full of cheese, but really some positive spin can go a long way.


  1. Greetings Aaron,
    Indeed, there is no "magic pill". And your thoughtful words resonate with the knowledge that along with proper medication and utilising positive resources and distractions, we are that one step closer to realisng that bad days are rarer and the good days, an inspiring experience.
    My friend, you are most assuredly cultivating healthy thinking and behaviour. Excellent stuff!
    In peace and positive wishes, your way, Gary

  2. I agree! Changing the way you live and think is huge.
