Finding a New You
Guest Author – Karen Kerr
Karen emailed me to express her gratitude for Stepping Out of the Cloud, she included a paragraph about her background and what led to her depression, I was so inspired by her story, strength and courage that I asked Karen if she would be prepared to share her story in a blog post and this is what she wrote (it’s not meant to be a shameless plug for the book, the message I would like you to take away is one of hope – whatever you think is causing your depression, there is always a way out)
I got married August 2013, it was a time full of joy and hope with my husband and I planning for more kids and dreamt of family get aways, but just a month later in September 2013 that would all change. I was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation and admitted to hospital in need of urgent brain surgery, it was the first of fifteen plus brain operations, I was in a coma for 8 days and they were going to turn off the life support and just to add insult to injury, while in hospital I developed meningitis and hydrocephalus. Hardly the honeymoon I had planned and I wasn’t looking for any wedding presents either!
Eventually I was discharged seven months later in April 2014 but I still wasn’t right and I ended up needing more surgery; a shunt that would be inserted into my spine and unfortunately the mobility on my left side was damaged during surgery so I was left disabled.
At the young age of 33 I was left disabled and housebound.
I couldn’t see a way out and depression set in and for years now I have been battling severe depression. The doctors answer is a high dose of antidepressants .
I felt so alone.
One day I was having a near breakdown and for some reason I decided to look for a self help book on Amazon. I came across “Stepping Out Of The Cloud” and it literally changed my life. I couldn’t put the book down. As I was reading the book I could feel myself getting happier and I could relate to what I was reading. I now am coming off my antidepressants due to the book.
What I want people to think about is that you can come out the other side and sometimes the other side isn’t that bad. Sometimes it’s accepting that you’re never going to be the way you were before and find the “new you”. It’s about finding the positives in your new situation. Mine isn’t a situation I asked for or welcomed, but it is my situation and I can’t change that. For example, I’m home 24/7 now whereas before I was a career woman but now I can watch my daughter grow up. I couldn’t have helped my daughter with her homework or be here when she finished school. There’s always good in every situation, it’s whether you want to find it!!
Find your new you!!

Do you have an inspiring story you would be prepared to share? For those going through tough times, hearing how others have faced their demons and survived gives hope and inspiration, we would love to hear from you.
Lower Anxiety Lift Depression
by Emma Triplett
If you are suffering from anxiety and depression, now is the time to take action and get your life back on track!
Lower Anxiety Lift Depression will explain the reason for anxiety and depression so you understand what you can do to deal with the issues that are restricting your life, realise you can take control and recover quickly.
The first step is to understand why anxiety or depression develops. Many people feel the reason for their issues is down to a specific problem or event that has deeply moved them; for example, the break-up of a relationship, financial problems, or illness. But, these are things that are worrying them, they are not the reason for anxiety or depression.
The first step to recovering is learning the truth about the real cause of anxiety or depression. Lower Anxiety Lift Depression includes seven professional video tutorials, one each day, to watch at your own pace. No pressure, no deadlines, no targets, and no confusing science; just Emma Triplett, Clinical Hypnotherapist, Psychologist and Life Coach, explaining why this is happening. Emma exercises empathy and shows great insight in explaining how to deal with anxiety and depression, how to banish it for good, and how to achieve peace of mind and happiness.
With Lower Anxiety Lift Depression, you can be happy, calm, motivated, stress-free and in control.
The Good News After the Bad
Depression and anxiety stem from chemical reactions in the brain. The bad news is that they cannot be seen and they are not always easy to understand. But the good news is that they can be controlled by you (no prescription medication necessary).
Take steps to recognise what has gone wrong and identify what needs to change and it is possible to learn what needs to be done to take control.
This video series is perfect for anyone who is ready to take responsibility for themselves and their life and is prepared to open their mind to learning new ways of dealing with things. Now is the time to enrol on the course Lower Anxiety Lift Depression.
Understanding Anxiety and Depression
When someone is in the grip of anxiety or depression, their brain gets stuck in a mode that is meant for dealing with crisis, emergency and danger. That’s why they might feel like they are going round and round in circles, doing the same thing over and again not able to break free of the thought patterns or are too scared to try anything different in case it doesn't work or something even worse happens. Worrying about the worst case scenario or feeling nothing will every work are typical thought patterns for anxiety and depression, the difference between the two is that people with anxiety tend to worry and what-if about the future and people with depression negatively introspect about themselves, their life and the past. Many people do both and many develop other symptoms of anxiety and depression such as anger, suffer from sleep disorders, panic attacks, migraines, IBS, eating disorders, addictions, OCD, and so on.
Banish the Irrational Voices for Good
It helps to look at the situation as having two voices inside our head. The logical, rational, intellectual part of our mind battles against the irrational, emotional, primitive part. This is the part that imagines the worst possible scenario to prepare us for what could go wrong. Someone suffering from depression or anxiety is likely to be letting the irrational, emotional, primitive part of their mind win the argument.
But it can be quietened. It is possible to banish it for good and put the logical, rational, intellectual part back in control.
