I walked more than 460 miles to cure my crippling anxiety
Torre DeRoche, 37, had always lived in dread, fearing everything from random sinkholes to global catastrophe.
Then a series of terrible things actually did happen: DeRoche’s father died of metastasized colon cancer in 2014, and her longtime boyfriend broke up with her at the height of her grief — just months after she published a memoir of the couple’s happy relationship.
The devastating experiences only deepened her anxiety.
“I was in a crisis and looking for something to believe in — hoping for some kind of serendipity to pull me out of it,” DeRoche tells The Post.
