Scott LeJuene Story and how I relate


Wow.....

I just got through reading the Scott Lejeune Story and all I can say is that I am amazed on how he has handled his situation. Because I can relate.

I have been suffering from GAD w/Panic Disorder for over 5 years now. It has not been pleasant. Medicine has helped me keep the jobs I've had, and also helping me with Graduate school. But the running undercurrent of unpleasent thoughts that Im sure LeJune had are still there. I also relate because it is difficult to understand for anyone who has never had it.

I hate the medicine that I have to take and I hate hearing people tell me that its either my fault or that its not my fault but I just need to be "more positive" or have "more faith". LeJune did what I wish I could do, he said screw what I wanna do, I am going to take care of my health. I wish I could do the same, but now I have a career and am full on in grad school.

But reading this.........it hits home. I am going to follow Scott's Example and just try to take care of myself, because we only have one life and we should make the most of it, and living in an imaginary fear that grips your mind is no way to live. And you can tell that he has made a full recovery. God bless Scott and pray for those that suffer from this.
