About the Author
MY NAME IS JENNY NYLÉN and I have worked both as a Careers Officer and as an upper-secondary school teacher in Psychology and Social Sciences for the last 30 years. Despite suffering from dyslexia, I have attained top grades in higher education. I have also been nominated as the best supervisor for trainee teachers in Halland (a county in southern Sweden). I love taking control and I am a speedy and efficient organizer. There is nothing needing to wait to be done – I do everything immediately. At the time, I regarded these personal traits as positive only, but I now understand for the first time in my 50-odd years, that it was about anxiety and control, and these are not traits that allow a person to live in peace and harmony. Thus, I have written this book about the worry and anxiety that I have carried with me throughout my life. I have always been an anxious person, even though I have never had any reason to be that way. Anxiety and catastrophic thoughts, as well as an enormous need to be in control, have governed my life since I was very young. Two years ago, I sought professional help and was diagnosed with GAD (General Anxiety Disorder). Those who suffer from GAD, and suffer you really do, have issues with daily worry and experience difficulties in trying to control how they feel. “What if-thoughts” continuously replace each other, which often means that your body is on tenterhooks. When I began my treatment with medicines and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), I worried over approximately 100 different things every day. Nowadays, I am down to about five issues of concern per day. My days have become so much more pleasurable. The book is meant to be for those who worry themselves about everything and anything, who suffer from continual anxiety, even though the thoughts may be completely hypothetical. Or even for those of you who know someone close to you having these types of behaviors. The aim of the book is recognition, and my goal is for you, the reader, to know that there is help available. Quite simply, it is so completely unnecessary to worry yourself over everything. To no avail. You will, hopefully, reach the insight that when you have received help to change your thought processes, you can achieve a much more enjoyable life. I am convinced that there are a great number of people out there who are exactly as I was, and who can find help by reading my story.
