In The Beginning

The best place to begin is always the beginning. As a child and preteen, I had pretty severe issues with depression and panic attacks. When Prozac came out, it was my miracle drug. It kept me chemically balanced and able to function without issues. I grew up normally. Graduated high school, began my working life. I tried many different types of jobs, then, in my early 20’s, I had an interview at a dental office for a receptionist position. I got the job and spent the following 23 years moving up in the field from front desk to chairside assistant to manager. My most recent job was Practice Manager of a large, prestigious dental practice. I loved my job, the responsibilities, the money and benefits and especially the feeling of security. In having a place to work steadily until retirement. Then in 2011, after 6 years in this position, everything changed. My life that I had always known had ended. And my nightmare began.
