Hello Everyone! I'm looking to talk to someone who runs this website. Does Lissa Rankin ever get involved talking in the forums? I'm suffering from depression and feel low and down everyday. It started when something was bothering me and it really became an obsession with myself. I even started panic attacks which just added more anxiety to the problem. I did get help and my doctor helped me to get over it. Talking to someone helps, but when my problem went away, my lows just stayed there. I thought I would feel better once obsessions leave oneselve but the lows I had with the obessions still hung on. It's a long story how it started, but being insecure didn't help any. Thoughts when idle are so dangerous to me. The thoughts just go on and on. I've tried medications and exercise and try to eat right but my lows didn't go away. I do have ups and downs but can't seem to hold on to the up feelings. I'm married and have one son and a nice home but still feel that something is missing. Meditation helps but feel like I need more. I am tired of reading books and listening to CD's. I do enjoy watching youtube and that's when I found Lissa Rankin. Very smart girl. Can anyone relate? Thank you
I see you wrote the above a year ago and no one replied , maybe you never come here now . I have just joined and am wondering if it is the type of site I imagined.
I found Lisa's interviews very inspiring and all the films and books listed as resources. I think we have a responsibility to try and do the best with our lives and it helps tremendously when we 'find our tribe' as Lisa says.
Lisa says she only found out what was really making people feel unwell when she questioned them about their lives. She asked them about their work and relationships and they all knew where they felt unhappy and what they needed to do to feel better.
I find exercise running or swimming helps get me out of any kind of funk and I am then able to deal with things with more energy and focus.
I hope you are feeling loads better now, no longer depressed and able to enjoy life with your husband and son.
