Why did you decide to get help?
My life was very quiet and uneventful. My friends were hanging out together but I kept making excuses because I did not want to go out. I would put off grocery buying and other things for as long as possible because it made me extremely uncomfortable speaking to anyone that wasn’t family.
I eventually decided to get help because I was tired of staying inside all the time while my friends had fun. I was extremely frustrated with myself for not being able to handle the activities and interactions that everyone around me did with ease.
How did we alleviate your fears about the program?
My biggest fear was that the program wouldn’t work for me. I was ready to make a change in my life, but I had no idea how to, and I was worried that the program wouldn’t be able to help me.
My fears were largely overcome when I had a kickoff phone call with my coach. It was very encouraging to know that there was a real person on the other end who was friendly and would work with me in order to effect the change I wanted to see in my life.
My concerns turned out to be unfounded; the program was very helpful for me.
