A really helpful book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Overcoming Health Anxiety (Paperback)
I have always had health anxiety, but during pregnancy it got really bad (I am now 28 weeks pregnant) so I started CBT and bought this book. This book really goes into the mechanisms of the hypochondriac's brain and helps you to see things more clearly and also suggests treatment, techniques and looks into medication. It is very important to feel someone understands and this book does just that, it makes you feel less alone by describing exactly the thought patterns which you can recognise as your own. I would absolutely suggest anyone who unfortunately has this problems to buy this.
PS I would also like to add that therapy is costing me 50 euro per session and the therapist is giving me advice which seems like a poor, less effective version of what is in this book!
