Even the smallest tasks can be difficult for people who struggle with anxiety. But as the loved ones of people with anxiety know, it can also create challenges for the family and friends who support them; what may seem like a normal chore to some families can be a monumental victory for others.Kristin Gonzalez, the mother of a 17-year-old son with extreme anxiety, recently wrote about their triumph with Alpha-Stim\u00ae:Alpha-Stim enabled a woman and her son to shop together, fear-free.Our son, who is 17, cannot shop in a store and has only been to a grocery store maybe 2-3 times since he was 3 years old. The anxiety from being in a store is too great for him and he just can\u2019t handle it. He had his first Alpha-Stim treatment at 5:30 yesterday and at 8:00 we went to the beach for a moonlight walk. He was so connected and calm in a way I am not used to, that for some reason I decided to try to stop at a store. Please note that if things go bad, he could have a huge meltdown, which is scary for me to handle alone. However, I just felt something different about him and felt he would be ok. So after our moonlight walk I stopped by the store and he got out of the car with zero hesitation and we proceeded to go shopping! He was so proud of himself!Another crazy thing that happened was that I said to him how great it was that we went to the store and went shopping. He has limited language but repeated and expressed his excitement. When we got home I told him to tell his Dad where we went and his response, with a smile, was \u201cGrocery shopping!\u201dNow what floored me was that I never said the word \u201cgrocery;\u201d I just said \u201cshopping.\u201d He just knew that on his own and said it. I am in tears writing this, as I am so excited about Alpha-Stim. Last night was a dream come true to get to go to the \u201cgrocery store\u201d with him!We are thrilled to have been a part of this experience for Kristin and her son, and of every life-changing story we hear from people who use Alpha-Stim.Alpha-Stim treatments are quick, painless, and easy!But what is Alpha-Stim?It is an FDA cleared medical device that brings fast, safe, and effective relief from anxiety, insomnia, depression, and pain.
