This was the technique that started me back on my path to releasing my anxiety, panic attacks and depression. I’ve gone on since to try other things but, I tell you, as a speedy solution there’s nothing like it and I used it for months.
I had seen a link for it on a facebook group I belonged to but I hadn’t tried it. Then one day I was subjected to the most vicious personal physical and psychological attack I’d ever had from a close family member (Good old Mater Famillias).
I was already vulnerable from being severely depressed, a situation this person was fully aware of and took it as the perfect opportunity to grind me down even further, laughing at me as she did so. (It’s a narc thing)
I was in shock. I couldn’t breathe, I couldn’t speak and I certainly couldn’t retaliate or defend myself. I was powerless and ashamed. I took myself from the room, stumbling and shaking with fear and cried my eyes out.
