Success Story!

These last couple of weeks had been horrible for me dealing with depression, anxiety, and obsessive worry, but over the weekend I am seeing that light at the end of the tunnel! Saturday night was incredible and I felt more like myself than ever. I went to see my most favorite singer ever, her royal highness the queen of rock and roll, Stevie Nicks. She has been my favorite since time began for me. I got to meet her drummer and her bass guitar player, and not only that I had 4th row pit seats and at the end of the show everybody was went up to the stage and I got to shake her hand!!!!!!!!! Words cannot describe how excited I was and still am! But I didn't once feel an ounce of depression, worry, or anxiety!
Then the next day I had a dog show and my dog won! I'd say my weekend was pretty good! LOL! But over all within the last few days I have been feeling a lot better.

Re: Success Story!

yay!

my Mum loves Stevie Nicks. We saw Fleetwood Mac in November 2009 - they were magic.

Stevie Nicks did a cd signing in London back in June - so i took my Mum to that. So she got to meet her idol.

Great that you are feeling positive - it the power of Stevie!

No - actually it the power of yourself xx
