On my way to being Super Better!!
About 1 1/2 years ago I left an emotionally abusive long-term relationship and felt very alive, full of gratitude and ready to live for the first time in almost two decades. It wasn't until I saw the TED talk that I realized there is a name for what I experienced: post-traumatic growth. Mcgonigal's philosophy has inspired me greatly and I feel like sharing it with all I see. I have found that gratitude leads to social circles that are more fulfilling. Gratitude leads to even more gratitude. There is still so much to learn and I am so excited to continue my journey with this app!
Battling Depression and Anxiety for Nerds
Found this app through the Ted talk given by the creator ( on netflix ). It's a wonderful way to make feeling better feel a whole lot less painful- and it's a helpful boost when you don't know how to get out of the darkness you're feeling for whatever reason. It's created from a place of empathy, and that shows. Plus, I'm a nerd, so having these little "missions" and "bad guys" to conquer *really* helps. I've been looking for a system like this- and creating one on my own just wasn't an option. Sincerely, thank you.
Do not waste your money!! This game might be great if it worked or if there was someone supporting the app so users could actually play it. When I entered a support request I got back the message:
Thanks for reaching out. Unfortunately, our epic adventure has taken us off the grid and deep into the technological wilderness. We aren't able to respond to emails right now. We're sorry in advance for any frustration this causes."
I cannot play since there is an issue with this app. To view most of my quests I have to select "all quests" which I wouldn't mind but they are not counted unless they are listed on the main page. Therefore, when I reach the goal of completing 3 quests it is not reflected on the main page and does not give me my new goal in order to proceed.
