"I was terrified of storms- I couldn't even drive if I thought one was coming. I would constantly check the weather radio and my phone, and if I heard even a little bit of thunder, I would hide in my house and not even look out any of the windows! I'd have to cover my ears so I wouldn't hear all the thunder and lightening and wind. I also would get panic attacks, and those really terrified me. I always had anxiety, ever since I was a kid, and it just grew. I talked with Jim and he's super easy to talk with- I knew right off the bat he was the one that could really help me. I remember reading his story, and thinking, "this guy really "gets" what I go through". Not even my husband could understand all the fear that I felt- even though I love him, he would just say, "You've got to get ahold of yourself- you can't panic like this all the time. What are you afraid of?". If I could have cured myself, I would have then! Jim McFarland understands this- he's actually felt it. Finally! Someone who understands! He gave me the tools to overcome my fears. Now, I go through thunderstorms with no panic, and very little fear. I don't hide now! I hang out on the porch and watch them!! I feel the wind, the spray of the rain, hear the thunder, and I'm fine! The panic I used to feel just went away. It was hard work sometimes, but he really helped me to get over my fears. Jim McFarland's methods really work!"
