A few years ago I found myself in the office of Paulette Lévesque psychologist at the Dieppe psychology centre. I knew that something was not right with me but I could not put my finger on it. Following an assessment Miss Lévesque's suspicions were confirmed – I was suffering from severe depression. I did not believe her...as this could not be happening to me!!! Nonetheless, symptoms do not lie. I had lost 50 lbs in six months, I barely slept 4 hours a night, I could no longer focus having lost my concentration abilities, my mind was going 1000 miles a minute of thinking about anything and everything, and, I could no longer function. Most importantly I had lost interest in life as I was in a state of mind that I had lost control of my life. My life was in danger. I began a long and difficult process of healing. I did have setbacks brought on by different causes and at different levels: emotionally, personally, within my family unit, and, numerous external factors. My therapy sessions with Paulette led to a full recovery. Today, I am healthy, I am strong, and, I continue to live my life without worrying too much about the things I cannot control. Paulette was there for me when I did not know where to get help.
