I was you.
I was once afraid, anxious, confused and lost. I was crippled with panic attacks, trapped by agoraphobia, and riddled with constant anxiety. I almost lost everything important in my life as my world became smaller and smaller. This is the story of my journey through anxiety, panic disorder, and agoraphobia. The good, the bad, and the ugly of panic attacks, anxiety symptoms, irrational and obsessive thoughts, and being afraid to leave my house or be left alone. This is the story of how I went from an anxious nightmare to a full, happy, and normal life. A life no longer controlled by anxiety or its limitations.
I am asked almost daily if I am completely recovered from my anxiety disorders. I am, and I am happy to share how I did it. It's not magic, it's not rocket science, and I didn’t invent any of this. There are no programs to buy, no coaches to hire and no expensive one-on-one sessions. I offer no herbs, supplements, crystals, or medications. Everything I needed to fix this problem was already inside me. Everything you need to fix this problem is already inside you.
This is simply a story of applying behavioral science, courage, tenacity, consistency, and an unquenchable desire to overcome these problems once and for all.
I was once you, but now I am not. If I can do this, so can you. I promise.
Drew’s story mirrors my own in many ways and it brings me great hope to know that he recovered from the same issues I have.
From victim to victor over panic disorder.
If you are a listener of the author’s podcast “The Anxious Truth” or just someone who is seeking to hear the backstory of someone who has successfully overcome panic disorder, I would highly recommend this book. One of the most important points the author illustrates through recounting his journey is the importance of taking an offensive and challenging posture against anxiety disorders.
In addition to the book I would also recommend the author’s podcast “The Anxious Truth” for more specific suggestions on how to implement the strategies advocated by the author.
