    Hi Laura! I’ve been dealing with vertigo/dizziness for the past several months. Along with that came anxiety and depression (or maybe it came before the vertigo). I’ve been seeing my family doctor and psychologist on a regular basis. Progress has been slow as every time I have a new episode of vertigo the depression comes screaming back. My profession requires a clean bill of health so I cannot continue my career until this is resolved on every front. You ladies have just convinced me to go back to my doctor and tell them I’m finally ready for SSRI’s. I’ve been apprehensive about doing it thinking that it won’t work for me. But I think it’s time to finally feel better. Thank you for convincing me it’s the right course of action. Love your work. Thank you for sharing these stories.

    “It is not a weakness of character, its not that you haven’t trained yourself, that you don’t know how to push through hard things”
