Why Suffer In Silence?


As you know, I suffered in silence with my Panic Disorder for 15 years because I felt embarrassed, isolated, and that it was my personal problem to deal with alone. Deciding a few months ago that I was ready to tell my closest friends and family, I have been overwhelmed with support. While this is my personal issue and ultimately I must overcome it, there is now a support structure that I can turn to during difficult periods.

Many people suffer in silence because they feel alone and that nobody else has what they have. I came across a list of celebrities that have spoken extensively about their anxiety. Hopefully this helps people realize that YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
