Format: Paperback
For six months I struggled with panic disorder. I didn't understand what my body was doing to me. I though that I was going completely mad. As well as counselling and taking anti-depressants I read as much as I could on the subject to try and understand what I was going through.
Eventually I came across this book by Dr Weekes. She explained clearly that every physical sensation I was experiencing was due to my oversensitized nerves. How my panic/anxiety attacks were not something that my body was just doing for no reason at all, but that by changing my reaction to them I could feel that I wasn't in the grips of something uncontrollable.
To understand why my head felt spacy, why my arms would tingle, why my heart would race were the most helpful pieces of advice I had been given. To really understand that I wasn't going to die, collapse or go mad helped with the fear - fear cycle and this was the first step to my recovery
This book helps you to 'own' your anxiety. Dr Weekes shares many helpful case studies and the book is full of practical advice to help you though those awful feelings. She really makes you feel that you are not on your own, destined to a life of anxiety or pill popping.
There is no overnight cure, but please try this book. You CAN take control and given time you WILL get through this.

Been suffering from anxiety and stress for months following death of my mum, husband in hospital twice and my own health problems from a bout of glandular fever. I was getting all sorts of weird symptoms - pain in fingers and toes, pins and needles all over my body, palpitations, numbness, muscle spasms, restless legs and more. Was convinced I had MS, Parkinsons or Motor Neurone. Doctor was convinced it was all anxiety based but sent me for all kinds of tests to rule out anything major. Bought this book and found every symptom I had was due to anxiety and over production of adrenalin. Once I knew the cause of all my symptoms, I stopped worrying about them and they disappeared. Yes, I have the occasional setback but I just read parts of the book again to remind me about the effects of adrenalin.

This book is still as good for today, as when it was first written! Dr Weekes KNOWS what you are going through - and seems to be the only person throughout my 40 years of suffering and failed therapies, who does. Most importantly, she clearly shows you the way forward. While some may or may not be relevant to you, there is so much of her description that brings you to tears of relief that your symptoms are 'normal' and you CAN recover. Whether you have mild fatigue... or serious breakdown, please read her works and your subsequent understanding, will be your most powerful weapon. Good luck!

I can't praise Claire Weekes enough - she is a true hero in her field!!
Her wonderful comforting and very practical advice has given me my life back in a way that pills never could. I now lead a happy,busy,enjoyable and fulfilling life and I owe this mostly to Claire Weekes teachings. She teaches us how we break the fear-of-fear cycle any of us can become trapped in. She teaches us how our nervous system responds to fear and how we can calm it ourselves by helpful thought patterns. This was all totally new to me when I discovered this book over 20 years ago while so paralysed by anxiety that I was unable to live a normal life. Instantly on reading it, I felt a reassurance which I'd never felt after seeing any Doctor or Psych and within 1 month I was free of anxiety and living a normal life.

People who knew me when I was suffering found it nothing short of a miracle that I recovered without tablets.

Her teachings stay with you forever and you never forget what you have learnt once you have been putting her advice into practice for a while - I refer to all her books as "my bibles" and I still read them because they are such a comforting read. And the most comforting thing about it is you know, once you have conquered anxiety the Claire Weekes way, it will never again take over your life.

Claires books have been reprinted many times over the years,all around the world under lots of different names.

I have only recently started to read this book, but, having suffered from anxiety for some years am already beginning to see results. Dr. Weekes explains the reasons behind the problems with such straight-forwardness and I can now see how I have been previously been making myself worse when I thought I was doing the right things! I really recommend getting this book ~ what's a few pound when it can change your life!

Buy this book if you suffer with any form of anxiety! I have read this book many times and found it to be invaluable. The book helps you to understand why you are feeling the way you do. It also helps to know that what you are experiencing is being felt by many people and you are not "going mad". If you buy one book on anxiety buy this one!
