Female, 44 years old
Las Vegas, Nevada
Issues: Sadness, Anxiousness
My name is E. G., I am 44-years-old and I am a professional fitness athlete, model and makeup artist. I have suffered from deep sadness most of my life and really have known no other way to live or to feel. As a child, I was raised in a very suppressed, controlling environment where it was not necessary to have feelings or to own an opinion. Consequently, I shut off all the switches and dared not make a decision or take responsibility for my life. In my 30s the deep sadness worsened and there was not a day I would wake up without feeling anxious and wondering why I would have to get out of bed and face life… all I felt was hopelessness and desperation.
One day a friend who was familiar with Geoff and Skip from the Brain Training Centers of Florida – and knew how badly I suffered from deep sadness and anxiousness – called me up and asked me how I felt on a scale of 1 to 10. I was sitting at about a three, not good. I ended up going to Brain Training Center of Florida for eight days and took in 20 sessions in that time period. During the assessment before my brain training began, they told me how I was feeling (depressed, anxious, fearful, paranoid) without me telling them what I was feeling. They also explained that there was no reason for me to feel this way other than my brain chemistry was altered since childhood in order to cope with the environment in which I was raised. They said they could help me by building new neuro pathways in my brain. I remember feeling different on the third day waking up with no anxiousness in the pit of my stomach for the first time in I don’t know how long. This was a strange feeling for me to feel nothing (no anxiousness) in my stomach, and to actually feel like getting out of bed in the morning. Upon finishing the 20 sessions, I went back home to Las Vegas and allowed for the 10 days to settle things in my brain. I can honestly say that I truly started LIVING from that point forward. I remember saying “so THIS is what it feels like to LIVE??” The desperation and hopelessness was gone, no more anxiousness or fear of everything. The calmness that came over me to deal with life’s situations and the sense of worthiness; an entitlement to go and achieve anything that I wanted to in this life. I have not suffered from deep sadness since then and almost a year later, my life has only begun. I feel like I’m 20-years-old again! Look out world!!! Here I come!
