Panic attacks that,when they peaked, made me dry heave to the point where I hardly ate or drank anything. I lost weight, bounced between meds and doctors, all the while trying not to let on how bitter I was for my twenties being robbed from me.

I was always scared, especially in the morning. I was a wreak. An online search revealed this book to me I read through it looking for the forr cure.

Hope And Help For Your Nerves : Dr Claire Weekes :

Think of this book like a sweet old grandmother I don’t know how old she was, but she died in walking you through desensitization therapy. Her writing style is somewhat old-fashioned, but easy to follow. Bourne talks about her directly.

I’m only beginning my journey through getting rid of my phobia, but for me, this has been six bucks well spent. My first episode of deep anxiety came upon me when I was 18 years old. There was much I didnt realize about myself, namely the way I really felt in my deepest places. For 3 days I did not sleep, eat or have a moment of peace. Pure panic would not leave, ebbing and flowing in terrible ways. I thought this was perhaps what losing ones mind felt like and that a hospital was the next step for me.

There was an immense amount of self-pity and if-onlys that moved through me. More than all else, no one could understand what I was saying. I would use words like anxiety and see people try to access stressful moments in their life only to realize they had no idea what this felt like. Over the years these episodes have continued and for so long I used modern terminology to describe them, such as major depressive episode and other DSM terms. I heard a lot about disorders, like GAD and it all pointed to mental illness.

I have tried to avoid anti-depressants my whole life as wish to see if this pain has a purpose, and I do not wish to block it, but recently had decided to begin on a series due to how exhausted I was with a recent episode that has been on and off for a month. For so long I waded through my sub-conscious, sought therapy, dug into my childhood, analyzed and analyzed and analyzed everything desperate to discover the cause and the root of this demon within.

Just when I felt like I understood something, some new aspect of the problem would present itself and it was all back to the beginning. For me, I never related to the panic attacks that I heard a lot about.

There seemed to be a blurred line, but I never felt like I was dying, or like my heart was going to explode. I had cold sweats, and racing pulse, and heart beating out of my chest, but it lasted for hours, not minutes and panic attacks didn’t sound like what I had, although MENTALLY I was in a full on panic often. This book clarifies the difference and the reasons why they are the same.

I offer this story because I believe after reading this book, that I was never alone. Due to the complexity of terms now and the fact that so much is simply labeled mental illness and disorders there is no help to be found for FACING our problems and our anxiety, just new ways to label things and new medications to help us not feel.

The truth is that often times those who suffer from this illness are beautiful souls who feel the depth of beauty in this world more acutely gope many others and flr sensitivity is why they love so deeply, feel the pain of others as if it were their own and why they are the poets, artists, dreamers, inventors, who taste the stuff of God in every breath, yet these powers when out of balance can create madness and chaos because of our sensitivity.


Understanding such factors as the sympathetic nervous system being out of balance and the anxiety finding fuel in thinking patterns that are destructive was huge for me. To learn to let a thought float, to accept it, and pass through it, nerfes matter how uncomfortable it was was pure poetry to understand. In time I learned that this anxiety was a messenger, and the message had grown so loud as to be deafening because I had ignored the whispers, the quiet pleas, and the loud protestations of my inner life and the deeper hidden feelings for far too long.

When the anxiety came, I learned to view it as a welcome guest, here to deliver a precious gift to me. For the first time I stopped fighting and learning to bring no hatred, denial, or rage to my anxiety, but instead to bring compassion and curiosity to it.

Once this dynamic was uope, everything changed. I am sure there is other useful material out there, but please get this book if you struggle with any kind of deep anxiety. We know how much this can hurt, and how it can be truly living hell to endure.

Worse than all else, anxiety changes the very way we see the world, blurring the truth belp clouding needed judgement. Please begin the process of getting the help you need from a doctors whose life work lives on in each of us.

Her love is plain, her concern so deeply felt even in the way she writes. She knows what it is to endure this, somehow she knows and more than this she gives the way out for those who are able to realize the truth of her words.

You are not alone. This is the way out, along with love from others, and the help of God where faith is gour in place. I deeply hope that all might find a way claird welcome this very challenging problem and the pain it brings as a wonderful gift and invite it in and cease to do battle with it.

This is the beginning of all change I believe, to cease to war, and to insist that even the most painful experiences carry with them the weekess of deeper truth, and are in fact gifts from the recesses we may have long ago abandoned. May you be blessed on the journey and I very much hope this book can help you begin or take another step as it did me. Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. I’ve had recurring panic and anxiety for years now due to PTSD and bipolar ii. I’ve read so many books, tried so many things.

Most of my panic attacks and worrying was about dying and health issues. Must be a blood clot! Must be a tumor! Despite trying to logic my way out of my fear, my mind would continue to obsess about death and illness every minute of every day. For 4 months, I could not leave the house alone because the world would spin and my legs would freeze.

Simple things like walking, taking a shower, even going downstairs to get the mail became impossible without assistance because I felt like I would fall or faint.
