I've struggled with my mental health for most of my life. Considering all things, I've been pretty lucky though. For quite some time I'd been able to manage things without outside assistance, but over the past year my anxiety has become completely overwhelming and out of control. And as most individuals who have anxiety and depression know the vicious cycle of these two feeding off of each other. I either spent days oversleeping or not able to sleep at all because I couldn't turn my brain off. Eating was extreme or nonexistent. And for the first time in a very long time I had the desire to hurt myself again, mostly in the form of scratching my skin (sometimes to the point of bleeding) to help calm my worst anxiety attacks. One night as I stood in line at CVS to buy extra large Band-Aids, normally a completely inconspicuous item but somehow felt dirty like I couldn't let other people know what I was buying--and more specifically why I was buying them--, to cover the deep scratches on my thigh that I finally admitted to myself that I needed help.
Things you must know about LDN therapy
What is LDN therapy? Naltrexone is an opioid receptor blocker, which in 1984 was approved by the FDA for treating opioid addiction. “Low dose” basically refers to the utilization of a daily dose that is about 1/10th of the dose typically given for the treatment of opioid addiction. At such lower doses, the medicine acts differently, presenting anti-inflammatory responses and useful influences on the immune system. LDN has been clinically used since the late 19s, but there was no general attention given to its various therapeutic applications until more recently.

As someone who believes firmly in the benefits of therapy and investing in your own mental health and well being, I think that in a general sense the therapy apps add to the conversation.
