A Quick Update

I just attended a weekend intensive anxiety group with Dr. Reid Wilson in Durham, N.C. this past weekend. (He's a rock star in the world of anxiety treatment & cognitive therapy) What a great experience! He has another group in February 2009 & I highly encourage you to check it out if you struggle with panic disorder, social anxiety or OCD (they're separate groups). It's worth the time & money - I only wish I could transport the group up to my neighborhood. Another exciting opportunity is to check out Dr. James Gordon's online class starting November 18th that looks at a more holistic approach to depression treatment. Troy commented on my book review of Unstuck & told us all about it - thanks!!

October was just silly busy, but I'll have something to post very soon about my experience this past weekend!

I am glad that you liked the therapy weekend. I recently moved to Raleigh and was thrilled to learn that Reid Wilson's anxiety center was so close! I just started therapy with one of his partners. I have thought about attending a weekend session and am glad to hear that you thought it was worth it!

Hey Jeannine - You're lucky to live so close! I think the weekend workshop was great and he also talked about a weekly group that he runs. You'll have to let me know what you think if you sign up for the Winter Group (they fill up quickly)!

I like your blog, and the title is really cute :) I'm curious why you picked it. I just started blogging about my anxious life too: This online medium is a neat way to share recovery stories.
