One thought on “Contact/Hire

  1. I have glanced at your blog-I’m too ADD/too much anxiety to take it all in right now-I will later. When I saw the title I smiled because I have always thought of doing something similar to what you have done here. Has it been therapeutic? Have you made money expressing yourself? I hope you have and I would like to think it’s not merely a 1:800,000 chance and my writing will just have to suffice to be therapy for me.

    Anyway,I want to tell others of my experience with rehab, outpatient and doctors etc. I feel I’m just a number and I’m full of resentment and don’t want to be because I want to live happy, joyous, and free. I want a counselor who specializes in anxiety disorders. I want effective treatment. I want to go to an AA meeting if I feel it helps. I would like to stop wasting precious time and energy thinking “it’s not fair!” because it doesn’t matter if it isn’t fair. I don’t have money or power. But I was thinking, at the very least, I could write about my experiences and offer some kind of help to others. Real help. Not “I’m paid to be a social worker and it’s my job to help you by handing you this paper with useless information on it.” I’m going to read your entire site and write again. Hopefully I haven’t annoyed you and hope you have a great day. Thanks.
