So those of you that have been reading for a while know that I’ve lived with an anxiety/panic disorder for the last decade. Well, a couple of months back I was reading Steph’s blog over at The Panic Room and was excited to read that their was a free anxiety study going on. So after getting the info I decided to give it a try. I took the online tests to qualify, passed with flying colors, and was told that my book was on it’s way. Yipee!
Well, the book arrived Friday!
So here it is…..
So now I’m supposed to read a chapter daily, do the exercises and then give them feedback. I’ve decided to post about it weekly to keep track of my progress or lack there of. Wish me luck!
In the United States alone, 40 million adults age 18 and older (18.1% of U.S. population) live with an anxiety disorder. Anxiety is very real and challenging. Lots of people go undiagnosed because of the stigma that is attached with mental health. If you suffer from anxiety it does not mean you aren’t smart or that you’re crazy! Did you know that there’s a long list of accomplished celebrities that live with anxiety and/or have suffered panic attacks?
