Before starting the IOP, I went days without eating or drinking anything. I couldn't get out of bed or go to class sometimes. My relationships were failing because I couldn’t love myself first. My mind was constantly blank, but would only race with negative self talk. I had awful panic attacks on random nights which lasted 2-3 hours per night (violent shaking and increased heart rate, followed by extreme/severe weakness). Now that I have completed the Anxiety IOP program, I know how to stop my panic attacks before they happen with the techniques I’ve learned at Renew! I’m not anxious day-to-day like I used to be, For anyone starting the program, I would tell them to stick it out even if it doesn’t seem like something that you would usually do, or feel like is something that would help.
