“I Want To Feel In Control”

Brian’s Story

Brian was 29 when he sought help for depression. Read a short excerpt from his pre-arrival interview before arriving for care at The Center • A Place of HOPE.

Life has become so complex, so busy and stressful…I just don’t feel like I am in control anymore. Sometimes I feel an anxiety attack is just around the corner. I started using antidepressants and alcohol to try to deal with it…

I want to feel ‘normal’ and be able to enjoy life. I want to feel in control and be able to manage my day, my relationships with friends and family and my work without getting overwhelmed…

Now read Bryan’s comments upon his departure interview after receiving treatment at The Center • A Place of HOPE

My goal in coming to The Center • A Place of HOPE was to deal with my depression and anxiety, so that I could learn other ways to deal with problems besides self-medicating with alcohol.

It was a very positive experience. It made it so much easier to relate and be able to talk with counselors who have gone through similar trials and struggles. I didn’t feel like I was just talking to someone with the training but not the experiences similar to mine. They taught me ways to deal with stressful situations and helped me in the steps I need to take from here.

I am very happy I finally made the choice to seek help and I was blessed by finding this place online. I wasn’t entirely sure what to expect being my first time in a treatment center but my experience here has been very good. Definitely worth it.

Life can be overwhelming – work, kids, health issues, bills and taxes, housework, yard work, holidays, technology, friends, spouses, legal issues, social media everywhere with alerts and buzzes and pings.

Even lack of sleep. Depression can be so cruel – when you just need a good night’s sleep, the stress, anxiety and worry never let you sleep well.

Or, you sleep all the time, exacerbating your stress and worry. It can be a vicious, never-ending cycle. We certainly have created a world that can get to be too much.

Once we’ve gotten to the point where we are overwhelmed – stress affecting our health, depression causing fatigue and hopelessness, anxiety making us want to withdraw from society and relationships – how can we step out of this “world” and not just re-balance our lives, but reclaim it?
