Anxiety & Depression: Eleanor's Story
Eleanor had a hard time fitting in. She was severely bullied through elementary school. High
school wasn’t any different but this time it got a lot worse as she became very depressed and
developed paralyzing anxiety to the point where she couldn’t breathe. It was physical pain for her.
She wouldn’t be able to enter a room full of people nor could she be touched. Life was
unbearable. It took time, support and focus but with therapy and medication, Eleanor blossomed
into a happy young woman that now studies psychology in University and works in an institution
assisting troubled youth.
