The point is that you can still have a life, even if you are far from "normal."

Format: Paperback
In this book, you won't find a self- help step-plan promising to make your life better (which often leads to a feeling of failure when those type of books don't work). This is a collection of stories, varying in length and writing style, from 14 different authors who found ways to cope with their anxiety disorders. The point is that you can still have a life, even if you are far from "normal." Rather than build false hope, it's a refreshing and honest approach to a problem that is more common than most people care to admit.

It's not so much about being able to relate to the authors or finding inspiration in the stories, as much as just being reassured that you are not a freak of nature, and while anxiety is unwanted companion, it does not have to be an obstacle or a dead weight holding you back from the things you want to accomplish.

Format: Paperback
Anxiety Disorders: True Stories of Survival is a refreshing look at how different individuals have learned to work through and cope with anxiety and the crippling disruption it can be in one's life. As a writer myself who has struggled with generalized anxiety disorder off and on since I was a child, I could identify and empathize with almost all of these writers. I recognized so much of myself in their struggles and reading their personal experiences made me feel less alone in the world and a lot less abnormal.

Anxiety and depression can make even basic every day activities a real challenge and every anxiety sufferer has to, by trial and error, find what works for them in combating this disorder. In this awesome book, these strong, brave writers have shared with us their own personal journeys and the coping mechanisms, lifestyle changes and treatments that both have and have not worked for them. I highly recommend this book to anyone struggling with any form of anxiety and to those who have loved ones with this disorder.

This short book provided me with lots of insight into folks who suffer and deal with anxiety disorders. It helped me understand how they think, feel, and cope with this disorder. I would highly recommend this book especially if you have a family member, partner, or friend who deals with sometimes debilitating disorder.

To start, I would like to apologize for giving this book a three. Hopefully you will understand after I finish.
First the book was well edited and formatted and the stories weren't horrible.
The reason I am not happy is I bought this book hoping I would find a story that portrayed the level of despair, desperation and dread I feel almost every day.
All the stories in this book to me feel bleached and candy coated.
Every story is essentially "yes I have anxiety but everything is okay."
The story that really upset me was written by the full time actor dealing with anxiety between gigs.
To be fair I personally suffer from more than just anxiety.

I received this book free and have given an honest review.
