My name is Paul David and I am the owner of the site www.anxietynomore.co.uk. I am also the author of the book ‘At Last a Life’ and the follow up ‘At Last a Life and Beyond’. I am not a doctor and don’t claim to be. I am an individual who suffered with anxiety for 10 long years. During this time, I found answers almost impossible to come by and spent all those years getting worse, not better. Eventually after feeling failed by the people who were supposed to help me, I decided to go out and look for my own answers.
I won’t go into a lot of detail, but I finally came across the answers I needed to reach full recovery. I now live my life completely free from anxiety and live it to the full each day. I went from not being able to go out of the house, to running a half marathon (As seen in the pic above).
This came about through a lot of study on the subject and also a lot of trial and error. I have probably read every piece of literature on the subject, not just on anxiety, but also other relevant teachings on how the mind and body works. It was through this study and my own dedication for real answers that I was able to lead myself back to the person I am today. This I feel, puts me in a stronger positon to help others, as there really is no better education than going through it and coming out the other side.
With the knowledge I had gained and the huge strides I was personally making I then decided to volunteer at my local hospital to help other sufferers with anxiety. Through my time there I had a lot of success and found that I loved helping others get their life back and it was volunteering there that was the inspiration for setting up my own website and then going on to write my first book, mainly so I could reach out to more people.
The books success really took me by surprise with it being self-published it had to rely solely on word of mouth for its success. It is now sold in most major bookstores, on Amazon and has recently been published in Japan. On the back of the sites and books success I have now spent the last 12 years helping others to recover, many of these in the public eye. I have even helped more than one doctor, the very people we first go to in order to seek help! No one is immune to suffering from anxiety.
Helping others over the years has been very rewarding. There really is no better feeling than getting an email from someone to say they have now got their life back. Recovery is not for the select few; we all work and heal the same. Some may take longer than others, depending on different factors, but we all have it in us to live a life free of anxiety.
I do hope you are next.
