Did You Know?
College can be stressful. Students can easily get anxious trying to juggle school, work, friends, and family while trying to figure out the rest of their lives. Most bounce back. But frequent, intense, and uncontrollable anxiety that interferes with daily routines may be a sign of an anxiety disorder.

Clearing My Path to a Healthier Life

 "Becoming educated about mental illness taught me about my life and living better." Michael E. Reagan, Jr.
I wish my breakthrough moment wasn't when I thought "I'd pay good money if I could feel better." I am cheap, so the path became clearer once cost was no longer a concern. After I decided to get help for my depression, one challenge was telling a receptionist why I wanted therapy. I had never told anyone I felt depressed. I hated having to leave work early for counseling sessions and how some questions about feelings left me reaching for the tissue box.  But what kept me returning to therapy was my sense of relief when I climbed the stairs to the office.

Each month ADAA will feature a thank you note, or a personal story of triumph. We invite you to share your own story with us or share how ADAA has helped you or a loved one.
