Only by the grace of God did I stumble upon Barry McDonagh and the Panic Away program. I consumed every ounce of his information, and began to practice his techniques: 1. Say "so what is the worst that can happen?" 2. Fully and completely accept and allow the discomfort (NOT DANGER) or anxious feelings and thoughts 3. Face it down - dare it to do its worst and 4. Engage in another activity - dwell in the moment to reacclimate the brain.
Unlike many other programs, Barry's counter-intuitive approach of addressing our fears and anxiety head on forced me to deal with discomfort in a new way, and to prove to myself that I could push through anxiety and stretch out my boundaries. Anxiety is no longer something from which to "be cured," rather, it's a condition that I'm learning to welcome and live with, converting anxiety into excitement. Barry's approach is warm, intelligent, common sensical, and effective. No matter if you're a newbie like me, or have dealt with this for years, there's life change in this book.
I thought it was the car - but I was afraid of being afraid, fearful of being fearful, worrying about worrying, panicking over the thought of panicking.
This book seems ridiculous. Run toward what I feared? Stop saying no when the anxiety was such a monster that I HAD to analyze it to death or actively avoid it altogether. It took me more than a month of listening to this audio book before it sank in.
My panic attacks are adrenaline surges in the brain, and most panic sufferers have physical symptoms. In my mind, what I had was something different. Something Barry was not directly addressing. And yet the more I practiced what he taught, the more and more I realized this DARE approach was applicable to me.
The book helped me understand how the new beliefs I had that were arousing my anxiety were just that, beliefs. It taught me that my reaction to anxiety was actually making it worse. It taught me to let go. To stop saying no because no fooled my brain into thinking there was something to fear. And to say yes when the anxiety was escalating, because saying no and shrinking back or trying to escape was actually triggering my attacks.
I encourage everyone who has panic attacks to read this several times over.
Few actually do because I suspect that react the same way I did when I first starting reading this book. It sounded like simple exposure therapy, but it went way beyond that into explaining how our thinking creates a cycle of fear of fear and ultimately panic.
This book builds upon Hope and Help for your nerves and teaches how to put Weekes theory into action.
