Seattle patient and former corporate executive

Bob, a former corporate executive, joins the program to share his lifelong struggle with anxiety and depression. Although he received treatment for depression as a teenager, it recurred later in his life and led to extremely low productivity at his job. For many years, he hid his depression from those he worked with and felt tremedous anxiety about it. Today, he has learned techniques for managing the depression and lives a much fuller and more settled life. There is often a tremendous amount of shame associated with depression and anxiety, but Bob stresses it not a character flaw. Like any other illness, it is simply about finding the appropriate treatment that works for you.
