Whewwww What a week

Hey all. It has been a crazy week for me so far. Just been busy, busy ,busy and trying to find a job. The job market really sucks right now. I'm just having the hardest time finding anything at all. lam very hopeful though and trying to stay positive. I went to my hynotherapist on Thursday. It went pretty well she is great. I told her that I wanted her to input positive thoughts into my head. I felt so much better after seeing her I think its really helping me with my depression and anxiety. My mom has gone to her as well but she went their for weight loss. My mom was eating a lot before she saw the hypnotherapist and she never used to exercise and she also was drinking 2 pots of coffee per day. Now she drinks 2 cups of coffee a day, exercises at least an hour everyday and hardly ever eats. She losing a lot of inches and has lost 15 pounds so far and its only been three weeks.

Self Help Books

I have been reading a lot of self help books lately which has really helped me with my anxiety and depression. The book Im reading write now is wonderful its called Your Best Life Now by Joel Osteen. Its the best self help book Ive read so far. He is a senior pastor of Lakewood Chruch in Houston Texas. This book has encouraged me to stay positive and live everyday like it is my last. Im all about bettering myself.

Stressful Week

So today I found out that Ive been laid off from my job. Which really sucks because this is the second time this year I have been laid off from a job. The economy is just really crappy right now. I know so many people that have been laid off. But what goes down must come up. I'm determined not to let this hold me back. Im going to stay positive and just find another job.

Moving Forward

So here is a little background about me and living with anxiety and depression. I was diagnosed with it when I was 14 and I'm now 28. So I have been living with this for a long time. I have tried everything from pills to counseling, hell now I'm even seeing a hypnosis therapist. I have only seen her twice, but I serious think that it is beginning to work. I have more pep in my step, Im not worrying as much about what people think about me. I know its going to be a slow process but I'm determined to over come this disease that actually affects millions of Americans. I used to feel like I was so alone and the only one with this disease but I'm learning that this affects way more people than I ever imagined which is really sad. But I'm determined to over come this and try and help as many people as I can overcome this with knowledge and positive thinking. After all knowledge is definitely power.
