I asked some of the girls for 5 things that they accomplished since they first started counseling. With there permission, I have posted them here. They are proof that recovery is possible :)
1. Stayed clean for months now! 2. Can chill when I have my panic attacks 3. I can invest my faith into people now 4. Go to the mall 5. Talk about my issues
1- I feel like I have at least someone who does care what happens yo me. So I don't feel too alone. 2- My depression have gotten better thanks to your advice. 3- You're always positive about everything and that really motivates me to keep on going. 4- My thoughts aren't that negative thanks to you because you're always here hearing me and giving me advice. 5- I'm on the right path thanks to your advice.
