I have suffered from anxiety for years. Sometimes I can be fine for months and then it hits like a ton of bricks, over nothing in particular or something relatively minor and continues to spiral. I have been on medication for years but came off it during a good spell over a year ago. I really need the support again but am keen to source some self help first before going the route of medication again. Does anyone have advice? Anything that's worked for you, without medication?
I've name changed for this one, and thank you for any advice!
Self Help for your nerves by Dr Claire Weekes. It is a really practical guide and quite straightforward advice is given. I found it helped enormously much more than anything else. I hope it helps x
I will second the book by Dr Claire Weekes....it is brilliant and straightforward. .its written as though she is talking directly to you. It is old fashioned in some ways but it was written some years ago but don't let that put you off because the essence of the book is still relevant.
