  • I have heard about both Jerilyn and ADAA organisation. The services they rendered by educating people and raising awareness about anxiety disorders and their treatments are invaluable help to the society. Let her soul rest in peace and let the awareness programs continue their services to help the society. My best wishes.

  • I’ve being researching about Anxiety and reading your blog, I found your post very helpful. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog!
