Stories of Hope

When that black cloud of depression hovers over me, or the anxiety and temper drive me close to using and abusing, I find "turning it over" actually means I must take some action steps, Like moving the muscles to use some objectivity and to change my insecure thought to secure ones. This takes a will to effort and a will to bear discomfort.

"Fortunately there was a Recovery group in my area and the discipline of weekly meetings helped me begin to get myself back together. However, it was reading a chapter every day and trying to practice the Method that opened the door to self-confidence that "feelings are not facts" and set me free."

"So, during my last hospital stay, I decided to attend Recovery meetings after my release. That was three years ago, and I'm still well."

I have had setbacks, but when I read one of Dr. Low's books, I realize my setbacks are average, that everyday life is full of irritations, disappointments, and frustrations and that feelings are not facts.

"Recovery International has given me my life and it has given me a philosophy to help me cope with everyday living."

Soon after discovering Recovery International, I began to feel better. I undertook leadership training, volunteering my time to do whatever I could to help all those out there suffering needlessly and quietly as I had been.
