The Hardest Parts of My Journey With Anxiety, Panic Disorder, and Agoraphobia
If you’re new here, hi, my name is Shannon Jackson! I struggled with anxiety, panic disorder, and agoraphobia for 15 years. Yes, 15 years! It was an incredibly hard journey, and I am grateful every day that I am now in the place where I can help others like you. But before I go on, I want you to know that you don’t have to struggle for years like I did. If you’re ready to put in the work, I can help you!
I want to share with you some of the hardest parts of my anxiety journey for a couple of reasons. The first is that when I was struggling, I wanted so badly to connect with somebody that had struggled with the same stuff that I had. People can tell you that you’re not alone, but to know and feel that you aren’t alone, well that’s priceless. The second reason is that I want to give you hope, inspiration, and motivation. I want you to know, and really feel, that you won’t struggle forever. My site is called “A Healthy Push” for a reason! Sometimes we all need a little push to help us get to where we’re meant to be in life. I want to give you that little push that will help you to overcome, because the life that you want and deserve to live is within your reach!
Okay, so back when I was struggling I’m pretty sure my mom said this to me daily, “Shannon, I promise, you won’t struggle with anxiety and panic forever.” And you know what, I wanted so badly to believe her, but there were many times that I didn’t. If this is how you’re currently feeling, I get it. I’ve been where you are! But I do what I do now to prove to you that with some hard work and dedication to you and your mental health, you can overcome it.
