"You may appear "fine" to those around you, but inside your emotions are intense and seem out of your control. You feel disconnected from your friends, your family and your life. It's overwhelming and you wonder how you got to this place. You desperately want to just, "let it go," but you don't know how. Right now, you're barely able to keep your head above water and if you don't get help soon, it feels like you might go under."

This affects the connection we have to our loved ones, our work, our self-esteem, and our place in life. In turn, patterns of behavior set in that prevent us from achieving our personal goals. Then, it becomes the norm. The body reacts. Symptoms emerge. Anxiety, depression, and meaninglessness take hold. We get stuck.
