First of all, I want to tell you what a difference the workshop has made in my life. So much has changed for me since that weekend. I have stopped taking anti-depressants, stopped taking anti-anxiety/sleeping pills, stopped drinking as a regular daily occurrence (still drinking some socially, but not nearly as much), and am sleeping better than I have I think in my whole life. I made all of these changes not as a conscious, labored process, but just because I have not felt like taking the pills or consuming alcohol. I just don’t need them.
I have felt a new calm in my life. Even when I cry, the tears do not come from a place of anxiety, they come from just sadness or happiness rather than this crazy angsty anxiety place they were coming from before.
So, a big THANK YOU for that weekend and for being your amazing self and helping me to arrive at this new place!
