This letter of thanks is long overdue. Since we first spoke, around one and a half years ago, my entire life has transformed. After being suddenly propelled into a state of anxiety by a very intense work environment and the chronic illness of my mother, I am now nearly cured. Aside from some fatigue, which I am sure will pass, I have more confidence than I have ever had before. The most important thing is that I know I will be alright. This condition doesn't scare me at all anymore. And for that, I am forever grateful.
I can trace my first symptoms of anxiety to my early teenage years. Although it was quite mild then, it slowly began to build over the years. I can recall an intensification of the symptoms after the September 11th attacks. Being a native New Yorker, I thought that I would be tough and overcome the situation. With time, the symptoms were overpowering me, though. There were the little fears, which started to grow, like travelling on the subway, or thinking that there was some terrorist threat at work. Still these problems were very small, and I was able to get by. The onset of the anxiety condition came for me when my mother suddenly became very ill, and I was unable to balance that situation with my intense career. I work on Wall Street, and working in finance is difficult enough as it is, but I also had to deal with an ailing mother. First the physical symptoms became unbearable. I was rushed to the emergency room several times thinking that I was having a heart attack. The chronic chest pain just wouldn't let up. Then there were the emotional symptoms that followed, the main one being that I thought I would go crazy. Eventually, this led to a depression that was absolutely impossible to get rid of.
Well, I can tell you now, that all of those symptoms are long gone. Even while living in New York, I am no longer worried about what will happen. I tend to live with the approach of "What will be will be". I definitely don't think that I will go crazy, the gruelling chest pain has passed, and the depression is more a memory than anything else. I am now able to concentrate on the more important things in life, my career, my family, and my happiness. Since we first spoke, I have made huge strides in my career. I took an assignment to work in London for 6 months, which I would have never done had I not recovered. I have also been promoted, and I have taken on much more responsibility. In addition to all of this, I am able to deal with my mother's illness in a calm and rational way.
Well, what more can I say? I could always count on you to answer the phone when I needed support. And you were never selfish with your time. Finding genuine people in this world is rare, and although I was sceptical at first, I have come to realize that you are probably the most genuine person that I have ever come across in my life. As New Yorkers, we are generally sceptical of all people, but I must say that I have absolutely no doubts about your work and your ability to help others.
Furthermore, although I have tried various programs advertised in America to no avail, your program is different from anything I have ever come across in my country. That obviously, is because of your own personal suffering and subsequent recovery.
Thanking you from the bottom of my heart, and hoping that you will carry on your work for many years to come.
