My Friend, Anxiety

Friday 25 January 2013

I mention in my About Me page, that I suffered a nervous breakdown mid last year. This resulted in severe depression and a debilitating anxiety disorder, both of which I am still struggling with now. The anxiety is particularly troublesome, as it is severe and it feeds the depression.

Recently I came across a program called Panic Away. I've tried many of these programs before without positive results, but I felt that this one was still worth a shot. Basically, the theory behind it is that in order to overcome panic attacks and generalized anxiety, we first need to stop fearing the fear. We need to welcome the fear in a sense and make anxiety our friend, in order to overcome it and find some form of happiness again.

I've just finished reading the book and going through the materials, which I do feel make sense. However, after having a huge anxiety attack this week and still suffering the aftermath two days after, I'm feeling a little disheartened in the present moment. I just hope that somehow, in some way I'll be able to put this new information to use and get somewhere with it.

I would love to hear from anyone who has tried this program and what your thoughts are on it, so please feel free to contact me - I'd love it!

Love to all always.
