Within The Anxious Mom Manifesto, Paola B. Sur reveals personal stories, experiences, and tips of her journey as a mom living with anxiety.
Paola suffered from anxiety almost all her life but was not diagnosed with the actual Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD) until she was an adult. She describes anxiety as "a monster that every day you try to defeat but instead, you might end up feeding it, nurturing it and making it stronger and scarier." However, she managed to find a way to keep the monster at bay and control her anxiety on a daily basis.
The Anxious Mom Manifesto seeks to offer encouragement, motivation, and guidance for mothers with anxiety. As a survivor, Paola believes that sharing real stories, tips, and methods used with success can be an effective way to help mothers relate to one another. The Anxious Mom Manifesto spreads the message that everyone can control their own monsters, plus encourages an open conversation about mental health and motherhood.
