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.
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.
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.
