Dear David,

Hi David my name is Kamala, I’m sure you remember me. I used to live in Auckland but now live in Brisbane with my partner and my little baby. I am writing this letter to thank you for the information that you have made available to me with your programme. A year and a half ago I was a mess, I was in a situation where I thought there was no way out. After suffering a miscarriage I started having severe panic attacks, my life was a total blur. Everything seemed to be spinning out of control, there was no place that I felt at ease or secure, my mind was in turmoil and I thought I was definitely going insane. After going to a doctor (who had no idea how I was feeling especially when I told him that I just felt really strange) he diagnosed me as having post natal depression and put me on anti-depressants. A week on these and I thought that the only way out of this despair is to jump off a bridge and the suffering seems to get even worse, so I quickly stopped taking the pills.

AND THEN I found your advertisement in the local paper and I did not hesitate to call you, within a few minutes of talking to you I knew that you had been through what I was going through and you knew exactly what I was feeling. I ordered your programme and it has been a blessing. The journey has been at times hard, I have had my setbacks and even said to myself, when the hell is this going to end and then I remember calling you and you talking about having the right inner voice. Well I started working on my inner voice, I kept a diary of how I felt and what I had achieved and reminded myself of how far I had come despite how I had felt.

I am now writing this letter with tears in my eyes at the thought of how lucky I am, I have a beautiful baby girl and a family that loves me and to think a year and a half ago I was ready to end it all. I now have a house which is covered in affirmations and little messages to myself, I handle unwanted thoughts in a totally different way and I sometimes even try to have a panic attack (which doesn’t work) just to see if I would handle it (which I would). Thank you for helping me get through this, I still know I have further to go on my journey to recovery, Life is a journey though and I know that I am on the right track.

Please feel free to let other people that are suffering for fear read this letter or contact me by phone or email. I want them to know that no matter how bad they are feeling they can get better, they just need to be shown the right way.

Thank you
