I came to Family Plus because I was feeling anxious most of the time. I would suddenly notice I was feeling sick, then my heart would begin to race. I hated these feelings that seem to come out of nowhere. I worked with a counselor at Family Plus and she taught me tools to use the next time I felt panicky. She helped me make a plan to take better care of myself and helped me identify what was happening when I became overcome with anxiety. I did not realize it, but I was reacting to things I thought were threatening me. With some new tools, I am better able to understand why I feel anxious and able to calm myself down. In fact, these episodes are happening much less often. I felt liberated because my fear of feeling panicky was keeping me home and from interacting with people. I am now feeling more confident.
