Welcome back to Warriors Unmasked this week we deep dive into a story that shows what it means to have courage, resilience and mental health. Allan Bester has gone against all odds to find happiness and rest while dealing with an anxiety disorder.
In today’s episode learn how Allan struggled with an anxiety disorder from a small child all the way through his hockey career and how the stress of performing along with never wanting to fail only caused his mental and physical health to deteriorate all throughout his career. You’ll hear about the moment Allan had enough and did whatever it took to find happiness and hope for life and all that he did.
Listen in as Allan talks about
the awareness factor of his disorder and how keeping it down kept
him from realizing that what he was struggling with was not normal,
how he began the steps to healing and even how medication has
helped create a life that Allan is looking forward to experiencing.
We discuss the turning point and the moment things started clicking
in his brain thanks to the aid of the medications he had worked
through with a trained professional.
We have an open discussion on the steps to take for each person and their own mental health whether it be medications, working through past trauma, or finding triggers we hope you’ll hear how nothing is more important than a healthy mental state and how stepping out and asking for help is only the beginning to your recovery.
Our hope is that if you learn anything from this episode, let it be that nothing is worth the cost of your mental health and if you have the courage you can reach out and take someone’s hand to start your healing journey today.
Always in your corner,
Chuck and Clint
