Jason A. Walker

Hi everyone! 

My name is Jason Walker. Welcome to my little corner of the World Wide Web!

I am a certified English teacher in the State of Texas. and am currently on faculty teaching Composition I, Composition II, and World Literature I at Tyler Junior College in Tyler, Texas. I am also in the midst of coursework pursuing a PhD in Literature at the University of Texas at Dallas.

I started this blog about 10 years ago as a way to document my struggles with Generalized Anxiety Disorder, panic attacks, and depression. Recently, after having a relapse that has sidelined me from teaching, I decided to re-double my efforts and refocus the blog back to that topic.

My goad here is to write truthfully and transparently about my struggles with anxiety and depression; about what works and what doesn’t; and to offer encouragement to folks like me (especially educators) who suffer from these debilitating conditions.

I’m not a physician or a certified counselor. I’m just an ordinary guy who has been to hell and back (and back again) with anxiety, panic attacks, and depression. My hope is that, together, you and I can figure out a way through this journey we call life–that we can lift each other up, offer support, encouragement, a shoulder to lean on, and maybe even a laugh or two along the way.

You can read a little about my personal struggle with anxiety, panic attacks, and depression by clicking here. And, if you’d like to read more, just click on my name in the header.

I will be posting at least once a week. Hopefully you will follow the blog, read the posts, and take a little time to like, comment, and share them with your friends and family. Ask questions. Express opinions. Use that comment box to get a conversation going. When we talk to one another, we don’t feel nearly as alone in the world.

So, thanks again for visiting! I hope you enjoy what you read, and that you’ll follow and come back again. If you have any questions, feel free to email me using the contact form below.

Much love!
