Thank You for Your Understanding

I just wanted to take this time to thank all of you for all the support and kindness you have given me on this blog as I have revealed some of my darkest moments to you. In the beginning, I wanted to be sure to be completely honest in hopes that I could help at least one person no longer feel like they were traveling this anxious road alone. Had I been able to find that one person, maybe I could have come to terms with my anxiety sooner. Regardless of how I discovered my own disorder, I do not regret anything that I have gone through in the past because it has made me who I am today, and I have been able to use these experiences to share with all of you!

Thank you again for being so kind and loving! You continually give me strength to share my journey with all those who need to hear it.


I love Blogging

I try to make sure I thank all of you as often as I can because you have been so supportive as I have put forth the continual efforts to gain back the control anxiety has stolen from me. It has been 5 months since my last panic attack and I am feeling mentally and spiritually healthy!

Blogging has truly helped me heal. Just by surfing through WordPress, I have found many of you who are struggling with the same illness and are bravely facing it each and every day! You all have been so open and honest, and it has helped me realize I am not alone in my struggles. That I am not weird or crazy. I’m just a woman who happens to experience anxiety.

Thank you for all the love and support you guys send my way every day! I truly appreciate it from the bottom of my heart.

Veterans are the foundation of freedom

Tomorrow as we take time to honor and remember those who have fought for our country, remember that they are the reason we live freely. That have scarified their time, energy, blood, sweat, health and even their lives to ensure our great nation continues to prosper.

Our past and current military personnel have my highest regards and they inspire me to push myself to be the best I can be. I am proud to say my grandfather served in the front lines in Europe for 3 consecutive years during WWII, and my great uncle (basically my other grandpa) served in Korea during the Korean War.

Thank you to all of you who are serving, and have served, this great country. We would be nothing without you.

Wow! You guys always surprise me!

I feel like I keep thanking you guys, but thank you for continuing to spread the word about my blog and faithfully reading my posts. I never expected to feel so much love and support from all you! Thank you to all 700 of you!! WOW!

Internet high five!

Thank you

I like to regularly thank all of who for reading my blog and taking such an interest in my personal story. You have all made me feel so comfortable opening up about my struggles with ADHD and anxiety. Outside of our blogging community, I have been able to be more verbally open with others. You have all pushed me out of my comfort zone and have helped me grow!

Thank you!

Blogging has helped me heal

I am so thankful that I finally decided to create the Persistent Platypus. I had been wanting to start a blog for years, but I never had the courage until this year.

Dealing with a mental disorder can be a very lonely battle. There are so many stigmas attached to mental illness that people are hesitant to open up about their struggles. I never told anyone about my battles until A few years ago. I didn’t want to be judged or stereotyped. However, all of you have changed that for me. You have accepted me for who I am and have left encouraging posts to urge me towards recovery.

Thank you for taking time to read what I have to say, and share your own experiences. I look forward to sharing my journey with you all!
