Walkin' the talk: a video log by Allison on her experience with anxiety

“I’ve finally come to realize I’m not by myself.” ~ Allison

In this 8 minute vlog, Allison talks about her life living with two anxiety disorders: Generalized Anxiety Disorder and Social Anxiety Disorder.

It is a compelling vlog.  Allison has a great vibe and she talks about:

  • her anxiety as a child;
  • how her anxiety got worse after college;
  • her experiences with medical professional when she went to seek help (twice);
  • her denial over her diagnosis;
  • her fear of workplace stigma and what she learned is the truth;
  • her acceptance leading to a better quality of life and being active in the mental health community.

Allison is the founder of www.mindofchange.com, and a Community Correspondent for Partners for Mental Health. She can also be found on Twitter at www.twitter.com/allisongrange.

As usual, this is just a snippet of the actual post over at MentalHealthTalk.info.  So to watch this 8minute vlog, I would be like to redirect you to the “official” Mental Health Talk post:  http://mentalhealthtalk.info/talk_anxiety.  Please come on over and look around.

While you’re there, please leave a comment with your feedback and/or your experiences with anxiety.  I would really love to hear them.
