“ I am no good”
“I don’t have any friends, I’m all alone.”
“I am always tired, even though I sleep a lot, I just want to sleep more.”
“I am not hungry”
“I am always hungry”
“No one gets me”
“I have nothing to live for”
“I drink too much”
“I am scared and tense all the time and I don’t know why.”
“I shouldn’t feel as bad as I do”
And you are completely right too.
You really shouldn’t feel bad, but you do.
That’s not your fault, those are the voices inside your head that are talking (Believe me, I know)
Life can be very difficult, with many different things just waiting around the corner to throw your mind into chaos.
There is some good news, though – The way you feel now doesn’t have to be the way you will feel in the future.
I know this may sound unreal to some of you, but bear with me – as long as you don’t stop trying, there will be a light for you at the end of the tunnel.
“But wait, who the heck are you?”
My name is Vlad.
Ever since I was 14 I was suffering from anxiety and depression.
Funny thing is that it took me a few years down the road to learn about my disorder.
I knew that I was introverted, and I thought that my general disinterest was common.
I didn’t have any friends to compare myself to and I had no one that supported me and my choices in life.
For the longest time, I felt like nothing.
These feelings haunted me, day in and day out, and I thought that they’ll stay for the rest of my life.
I was removed from mandatory military service here in Israel due to my unstable mental health and even ended up being sent to the emergency department because of how it was affecting my overall health.
I was sick of it.
I felt that no one understood me at all, the psychiatrists offered very limited help.
Despite their years of experience, it felt as though none of them ‘got me’.
So I decided to make a change in my life, so to speak.
I took it upon myself to learn about anxiety and depression and to overcome them, not through pills but by making lasting, impactful, changes in my life.
Today I’m in a much better place because of that.
This page is about you, too.
I told you about me, but this website is really about you – are you willing to take on this ‘project’ with me? Can you tackle this issue head-on?
Your case might be far less severe than mine, it might also be a lot worse. That’s not really the point.
The point is to try, try and get better, no matter what.
Anxiety and depression can be overcome, but it’s a long process, and if you aren’t willing to put everything into it then this website isn’t for you.
It takes motivation and time, but as long as you won’t back down you will see the results of your efforts.
Having said that, there is a “catch” here.
If you aren’t willing to put everything into this then you are wasting your time.
It’s really as simple as that.
For those of you who do stick around: I will see you on the other side!
