$39.00 of $65.00 funded
My very thoughtful and kind friend Lori-Ann purchased a float as gift for my birthday, knowing that it was something I must try! I have had several bouts of anxiety, depression, and stress throughout my entire life however this past fall I had life completely flip me upside down and I was unable to cope with the overwhelming sadness, depression, and anxieties I was facing. All within one month two very close people in my life passed away and my relationship of 5 years ended which (after much expensive therapy uncovered) all triggered a PTSD episode from losing my mother at the age of 5 and not grieving properly. I found myself unable to eat, sleep, work, and was losing weight at an aggressive rate. I continue to work closely with my doctor and two psychologists to heal and calm the every day sickening and gut twisting feelings I face. I have constant recurring nightmares about the last time I saw my mom and have some deep abandonment fears which are haunting me constantly. I have tried everything from medication, yoga/meditation, massage, acupuncture, naturopath, osteopathy, quitting alcohol, jogging, just to name a few with little to no relief. I enjoyed my first float as my birthday gift last week and it was the first time I have felt any sort of relief. I slept soundly for the first time in months and was able to quiet my racing mind long enough to find even a slight relaxation. I know that floating is something I need in my life as often as possible. Unfortunately with the cost of life + the therapy treatments I have been taking, I am thousands of dollars in debt to MasterCard. I have panic attacks almost daily about my financial situation and I know that is not helping me in my healing journey. I am nominating myself and sharing my story in hopes that it will give me an opportunity to experience the incredible benefits of floating regularly. I dream of my life returning to a stable place and I am willing and eager to do anything I can to get there. I have never been made more aware how important self care is!
