Panic attacks - approximately 5% of the population will experience them at sometime or another. Seemingly coming from nowhere, the dread of having an attack itself, transforms the ordinary world of everyday life into a nightmare of anxiety and suffering. Bev Aisbett has survived Panic Syndrome and reinforces the three basic messages;
- You can beat this
- You are not alone
- You will recover
Originally published in 1993, this calm, commonsense guide has helped many thousands of panic attack sufferers to overcome their fears. Bev Aisbett explains how panic disorders develop and how to recognise the symptoms, and covers topics such as changing negative thought patterns, seeking professional help and, ultimately, the skills for recovery. Now fully revised and updated, Living With It provides much-needed reassurance and support, showing the way out of the maze of panic with humour and the insight of first-hand experience.
