Therese Borchard

Patient Leader

I call myself a hope builder, rather than a writer or author. I’ve tried over 50 medication combinations and more than 50 natural supplements. I’ve eliminated alcohol, caffeine, gluten, dairy, and sugar from my diet. I’ve immersed myself into mindfulness meditation, done yoga, and experimented with acupuncture. I’ve been in therapy for 14 years, keep a gratitude journal, and exercise no less than six times a week. I train my thoughts, pray, and do meaningful work. All these things have helped relieve symptoms of anxiety, panic, sadness, and anguish over the years. But hope is what kept me alive. Hope is born when people share their stories with one another. So I share mine with you.
