It does provide key reinforcement of the point that panic is a biological and natural thing. You're not dying. You're not going mad. You have adrenaline flooding your system due to primitive fight-or-flight protocols embedded in your brain. If you embrace it and go with the flow, it'll subside.
A thought is a thing - the book repeats, rather frequently. If you exert your authority, by asserting control with your own thinking on the matter, you can overcome the negatives of panic. Remind yourself that this will pass. Tell yourself that you're a strong and positive individual. Point out that panic is a natural response to stress, pressure or danger - and that you should embrace it rather than suffer.
I'm probably boiling it down into slightly the wrong turn of phrase, but that's the essence.
It considers seeking professional assistance, considering treatments and medication, developing coping mechanisms and sharing your problems with others. All good advice and useful enough.
Just not quite what I wanted - although, I'd be hard-pressed to tell you exactly why. I suppose everyone has their own experience and each of us has a feeling about what might work for them. I will consider the advice given here and see whether anything helps. Your own experience may vary - and I certainly would say this one is worth picking up
The 2 books which have helped me the most are ' At last a life' by Paul David and ' Anxiety....panicking about panic' by Joshua Fletcher.
I would go as far as to say that the above 2 books should be read by anyone struggling with anxiety and panic.....see my reviews . You can't get any better than these 2 books and the Christine Ingham book is being returned.
The author talks about her own attacks. In reality, I don't believe you can ever cure yourself, you just have to learn to cope with the attacks or rationalise them. I have found as I have got older I can rationalise them more but my daughter also suffers and hers tend to come on when she is tired or not eating properly. Something I have noticed about myself. Things are much worse when one is tired or eating junk food say.
Some good tips in this book but most of them can be found on the internet anyway. There is a really good place called 'no more panic' (website) that I recommend to anyone suffering from panic/anxiety.
