    some who seemed to find pleasure criticizing my appearance says Scanlan who turned 18 a month after winning the title Some even questioned my faith saying a true Christian wouldn t compete in a swimsuit competition Yet as harsh as the critics were Scanlan was almost as hard on herself Perfectionism fueled an inner critic she couldn t silence with the shut down button Without the support of family for the first time in her life she s the middle child of seven children and was homeschooled until high school Scanlan struggled alone with the hurtful comments and stresses of life on the road Despite sleeplessness and fatigue she had to appear pretty and poised every time she stepped out of her hotel room Scanlan was consumed by fears that she was letting everyone down She tried to stuff down her feelings turning to food for comfort The bouts of emotional eating only left Scanlan feeling worse as she tried to live up to the image of how a beauty contestant should look and act especially one whose platform was eating disorders Scanlan says there were many nights on the Miss America tour when she cried herself to sleep end of excerpt Tagged with Miss America Teresa Scanlan About the author esperanza Has 732 Articles LEAVE YOUR COMMENT Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked First Name or Nickname Do not use full name Email Message CURRENT ISSUE Recent Issues November 1 2015 2 07 pm Fall 2015 GLENNON DOYLE MELTON Truth warrior In her Momastery blog her popular speaking tours and her book Carry On Warrior Glennon Doyle Melton shows it s OK Read more August 1 2015 2 07 pm Summer 2015 LEE WOODRUFF STRESS TEST After a family crisis left Lee Woodruff with symptoms of depression and anxiety she found the courage to reach out for Read more May 5 2015 9 31 am Spring 2015 DEPRESSION WHAT BREED IS YOUR BLACK DOG The unwelcome pup looks different for everyone and your particular form of depression can make a difference in choosing Read more February 1 2015 2 12 pm Winter 2015 TAKE THIS TO THE BANK Stressing out about finances These strategies can help you take control of your wallet and your worries by Kelly James Enger Read more SoundOFF MOMS DEPRESSION What is it like to be a mom with depression What is hardest for you What helps you cope CLICK HERE TO ANSWER CURRENT RESEARCH Shake It Off Not So Easy for People with Depression New Brain Research Suggests 2 27 2015 Harsh winter brings some psychological benefits says UB researcher 2 24 2015 Study Linking Suicidal Behavior Psychotic Experiences May Yield Strategies to Help Prevent Suicide Attempts 2 24 2015 Suicide Risk Falls Substantially After Talk Therapy 11 20 2014 A New Test Measures Analytical Thinking Linked to Depression Fueling the Idea That Depression May Be a Form of Adaptation 11 19 2014 CONNECT esperanza s Hope

    our life we open a space where the seeds of hope are sown I was able to face each day because of my faith that God was working in the fertile darkness of my life to bring about healing and wholeness even when I felt hopeless and alone I now know that mental illness affects all aspects of life including our spiritual well being It strikes at our very soul making us feel cut off from ourselves from others and from our understanding of God Depression is a thief in the night It steals our sense of self worth our hopes and dreams for the future and it feels like it will always be that way And yet I no longer fear my illness because I know that I persevered I continue to have my medications monitored maintain a good support system and practice good self care I reach out for help when I feel most vulnerable I ve learned coping skills and have developed inner resources I relate to the words of Louisa May Alcott who wrote I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship The Letter to the Hebrews says We have this hope a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul I am able to face an unknown and uncertain future knowing that I will be sustained by this anchor of hope Tagged with Control Hope moving forward About the author Rev Susan Gregg Schroeder Has 1 Article Rev Susan Gregg Schroeder founded Mental Health Ministries to provide educational resources to help erase the stigma of mental illness in our faith communities www MentalHealthMinistries net She shares her personal story as she struggled with severe depression in her best known book In the Shadow of God s Wings Grace in the Midst of Depression Upper Room Books 1997 LEAVE YOUR COMMENT Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked First Name or Nickname Do not use full name Email Message RELATED ARTICLES The Most Important Gift You Can Give Yourself December 24 2015 12 01 am There is a book which changed my life in such a profound way that I used to share it with my patients at the partial The Two Things We Can ALL Use October 1 2015 12 01 am I had the opportunity to attend the DBSA I to We conference in Chicago this past weekend as both a participant and a When Someone You Love Is Lost In The Illness May 7 2015 12 01 am Today s LifeTool is for GIVING HOPE I recently met a man whose story is like so many others This post is for him those people What Is Wellness February 4 2015 12 01 am Optimal Health this was my working definition of wellness for many years I liked it because it allowed me to include more people However CURRENT ISSUE Recent Issues November 1 2015 2 07 pm Fall 2015 GLENNON DOYLE

    You re such a screwup I have learned that the only way to silence that voice is to consciously replace it with one that says I am worthy of my own love and the love of others I am not defined by what I do or what I accomplish I deserve to be happy I have also learned that being happy and healthy isn t a destination but a continuous journey Because I don t want to return to believing that I am only as good as my next success I have put mechanisms in place to ensure that I m continuing to feed myself a positive mental diet reading and watching motivational materials surrounding myself with encouraging people exercising and meditating regularly celebrating my successes spending more time doing things I enjoy and am good at and much more Since my bout of depression I have stepped away from my previous career and now focus on helping others avoid and overcome many of the obstacles I have faced I write and speak about depression anxiety perfectionism the differences between success and happiness and more Hope I have found is contagious in offering it to others I stay connected to it myself I am also convinced that happiness is a possibility for everyone no matter where you re coming from or what s in your past Stop listening to the voices that keep you down and start talking to yourself instead And remember the most important thing you can do is tell yourself I love you and really mean it Tagged with perfectionism self talk About the author esperanza Has 732 Articles LEAVE YOUR COMMENT Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked First Name or Nickname Do not use full name Email Message RELATED ARTICLES When The RIGHT Way is The WRONG Way May 28 2015 12 01 am As I shoveled mulch this past weekend I was reminded of an old way of thinking that used to create A LOT of stress in How to STOP the Negative Self Talk February 26 2015 12 01 am I was sitting in the Chicago airport waiting with a fellow DBSA er we got talking about negative self talk He s been working on it however he noted Dena Higley A perfect mess February 1 2015 8 09 am When life didn t follow her script this helicopter mom learned to let go By Stephanie Vozza Dena Higley is used to making people There Is No Better Time Than Now July 3 2014 12 01 am A recent comment on one of my posts helped me realize there was something even more important than LifeTools themselves that I hadn t talked about What CURRENT ISSUE Recent Issues November 1 2015 2 07 pm Fall 2015 GLENNON DOYLE MELTON Truth warrior In her Momastery blog her popular speaking tours and her book Carry On Warrior Glennon Doyle Melton shows it s OK Read more August 1 2015

    The therapy sessions though helpful always left me feeling exhausted and in need of a place to regroup to process everything that had just happened but where I was never ready to return home It was too dreary too full of that frighteningly familiar melancholy I would pick my daughter up from her preschool and we would go to a museum or for a walk in the park we d drive down to the beach sit and watch the water for a while or just stop someplace for an ice cream cone Those ordinary activities brought me such a sense of peace They filled me with a hope I hadn t felt in a long time When you re depressed it s hard to imagine let alone plan for a future But suddenly I found myself planning things to do with my daughter after my next therapy session I still wasn t well enough to maintain any sort of social calendar but imagining ways to share lazy California afternoons with my daughter was a start And more it was a source of joy Real joy something I hadn t felt for a while What I gained every week from those magical hours following my therapy sessions was a hope that eventually led me to faith the ability to trust that soon enough my life would be full of many such hours and afternoons Soon enough it was Tagged with Hope About the author esperanza Has 732 Articles LEAVE YOUR COMMENT Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked First Name or Nickname Do not use full name Email Message RELATED ARTICLES The Most Important Gift You Can Give Yourself December 24 2015 12 01 am There is a book which changed my life in such a profound way that I used to share it with my patients at the partial The Two Things We Can ALL Use October 1 2015 12 01 am I had the opportunity to attend the DBSA I to We conference in Chicago this past weekend as both a participant and a When Someone You Love Is Lost In The Illness May 7 2015 12 01 am Today s LifeTool is for GIVING HOPE I recently met a man whose story is like so many others This post is for him those people What Is Wellness February 4 2015 12 01 am Optimal Health this was my working definition of wellness for many years I liked it because it allowed me to include more people However CURRENT ISSUE Recent Issues November 1 2015 2 07 pm Fall 2015 GLENNON DOYLE MELTON Truth warrior In her Momastery blog her popular speaking tours and her book Carry On Warrior Glennon Doyle Melton shows it s OK Read more August 1 2015 2 07 pm Summer 2015 LEE WOODRUFF STRESS TEST After a family crisis left Lee Woodruff with symptoms of depression and anxiety she found the courage to reach out for Read more

    I wondered how she could be so sure My doubts were laid to rest when Aida disclosed that she too suffered from depression I don t recall how long I lay in Aida s arms as she recounted the details of her relentless pursuit of recovery Like Aida I was barely 18 when my life was crippled by anxiety panic attacks and depression Repeatedly family and doctors insisted I would recover When the electric shock treatments medications and therapy failed to heal me I lost faith But in that moment I trusted Aida Unlike others she had been where I was And she had emerged into the light Two decades ago an angel named Aida gave me the greatest gift of all Since our meeting hope has sustained me through numerous bouts of depression and empowered me to create a life of my dreams as a wife mother and mental health advocate Over the years I prayed I would find a way to pay Aida s gift forward In 2006 I founded a nonprofit organization to promote global mental health awareness Since then I have had the opportunity to share Aida s gift of hope with people from around the world At a rally in India a Muslim man whose dream of becoming an architect had been shattered by depression told me that my story helped him rise like a phoenix out of the ashes to reclaim his life There is a quote accredited to Charles Caleb Colton that says Hope sees the invisible feels the intangible and achieves the impossible Although depression has no barriers not of age gender nationality religion or socioeconomic status hope has no boundaries Tagged with Depression hospitalization miscarriage Suicide About the author esperanza Has 732 Articles LEAVE YOUR COMMENT Cancel reply Your email address will not be published Required fields are marked First Name or Nickname Do not use full name Email Message RELATED ARTICLES Managing Depression and Living Well February 10 2016 11 01 am Through Veterans own voices Veterans have the chance to hear from trusted and credible sources other Veterans like themselves In this video hear Veterans share their Appreciating the Compassion Fatigue and Vicarious Trauma Experienced by Therapists February 2 2016 12 35 am The long row of 80 motorcycle police officers in a two wide formation was followed by a black hearse and a black limousine We passed them Douglas M Duncan The Politician s Courageous Depression Disclosure February 1 2016 2 52 pm In his 24 year career in public office including three terms as the top elected official in Maryland s most populous county DOUGLAS M DUNCAN became a Andrew Solomon Reflects on Resilience February 1 2016 2 03 pm In Andrew Solomon s award winning memoir The Noonday Demon he explored depression recovery and resilience through his experiences and a larger scientific and cultural lens CURRENT ISSUE Recent Issues November 1 2015 2 07 pm Fall 2015 GLENNON DOYLE MELTON Truth warrior In her Momastery blog
