Rob on managing his mental health
Living with anxiety and depression is a reality many Australians face. For Rob this is part of his life, something he manages every day. He also occasionally suffers from anxiety attacks. Rob has struggled to open up to others about his mental health. He often used to downplay the details of his condition, whenever visiting his health professionals. He also struggled to understand what triggers his anxiety attacks as he has never recorded when they happened. By the time he visited a professional he had forgotten some of the details.
Using Wanngi, Rob now doesn’t have to recall the details every time he visits his doctor, and no longer has to relive every experience. If he suffers from an attack, he can record it immediately once he has recovered. In doing this he is still able to recall the severity and what he was doing that led up to it. Adding notes to each event as it occurs, he can also add his thoughts and feelings at the time, as well as his overall reaction to experiencing it. At his appointments, all he has to do is show his doctor the timeline and his doctor can view a summary of exactly what occurred.
