VAD’s Story: I was extremely shy…

Hey Everyone!

Hope you are having a great week.
If you haven’t yet read VAD’s story, please check it out here: https://turningpointct.org/story/shyness-vad/.
For many of us, getting professional help is our turning point, for others its simply the people they meet. She talks about growing up with anxiety; how its correlates with her sleep disorder and how college has helped her.

This is a perfect reminder that in spite of what we are going through there is light at the end of the tunnel. There are many young adults who are dealing with very similar struggles to ours so YOU ARE DEFINITELY NOT ALONE! Please share your thoughts.

    I hope my story assures you that while although it’s been getting worse, it will get better.

    I look forward to keep seeing you use TurningPointCT.org as your outlet while you’re back at school!
