Melissa Osburg - Mental Health Awareness Month Video

by Melissa Osburg

I have always suffered with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, but really hit rock bottom about 5 years ago after my hysterectomy.  About 18 years ago after the birth of my first child I suffered some complications. To this day, I can replay every moment - this is when the doctors diagnosed me with PTSD.

I also suffer with panic disorder that at times control my life. I see a psychiatrist alongside with my Cognitive Behavioral Therapist (CBT), where I go through daily exposure therapy to help overcome this tormenting disease. It’s been really helpful in my situation. Remember it’s a daily healing not an immediate fix.

I hope my story helps and will be inspiring to others.
