This review is from: Panic Attacks: What they are, why the happen, and what you can do about them: What They Are, Why They Happen and What You Can Do About Them (Paperback)
After having a particularly stressful time in my life, I had decided to take control, only to be flattened by panic attacks. I had no idea what they were, what was happening to me, doctors didn't help or seem to have a clue, and I was very, very frightened. A counsellor mentioned anxiety and the 'fight-or-flight' response to me, and I decided on some internet research, culminating in the purchase of this book, along with a couple of others. To be honest I never read the others, because as soon as I opened this book, I felt a wave of relief - at last, someone who knew what I was going through!
Written in a very friendly, understanding way this book explains exactly what it says on the cover - what they are, why they happen and what you can do about it. From page one onwards, I was getting myself better, and now, whilst I still do have the occasional panic attack, I know exactly how to deal with it and they are no longer a problem in my life.
If you suffer from panic attacks, this is the book for you. If you are Christine Ingham reading this - thankyou, thankyou, THANKYOU!!
