A site dedicated to how I overcame 10 years of anxiety
My name is Paul and I suffered from every aspect of anxiety and panic disorder for ten years until I reached the point where I thought I could never recover. I would often experience feelings of fear for no reason and suffered chronic anxiety until I could no longer function properly. I was constantly depressed and had no interest in life.
I also suffered from depersonalisation, which brought on feelings of unreality to the point I honestly thought I was going mad. Intrusive thoughts would race around all day, making me feel completely locked in my mind. I just felt as if I was walking around in a dream while the world passed me by; I lost my job, many friends and, more importantly, it robbed me of my whole personality.
My recovery from anxiety came because I refused to give up hope and left no stone unturned in finding a way out of this condition. Some of the information I gained was gathered from different sources; however, the majority of my recovery was due to my own insights and truly understanding of how the mind and body work. Once I finally understood this condition, I was then able to fully recover and become the person I am today.
It was after my recovery in 2006 that I decided to set this website up so that I could help others who had suffered as I had. The site has no affiliate links, no sales pages, and no hidden members area. All the information on this site is free and was written solely by me.
The only thing for sale are my best selling books on the subject ‘At last a life‘ and ‘At last a life and beyond‘ for which the purchase is totally optional. If you would like to skip to the information, then click on the link ‘Help and advice‘ or go to my ‘anxiety blog‘ where I have numerous helpful articles.
My initial book ‘At last a life’ continues to get excellent feedback with many doctors and therapists recommending it to their patients and is now on prescription at selected surgeries. It has also been published abroad and is the top 3 best selling books on Amazon on the subject. So many people who have read it tell me how much it has changed their life, including many in the public eye.
Here are some testimonials from such people.
I chose the title of my book “AT LAST A LIFE” as it summed up recovery for me because I finally had my life back. Not only did I want it to give others a full understanding of anxiety and panic, but also to help them understand why they feel like they do and what is keeping them in the cycle. I wanted it to come from someone who had actually been through it and could relate to how you are feeling.
I genuinely want to help others. There is no better feeling than changing someone’s life for the better. I understand, through my own experience, what an awful, lonely place it can be.
Although the book contains far more information than there is on the site, I have added many pages that cover all aspects of the condition and the many symptoms of anxiety you may be experiencing. I also have a very active Facebook page with over 10,000 followers. You can also follow me on other social media outlets by following the links at the top of the page and find out more about me on my about me page.
I do hope you enjoy my site. I dedicate it to all sufferers of anxiety and panic in the hope that in some way it helps give some answers to your symptoms and the way you feel.
