All of us experience anxiety at some time. It can be useful in helping us rise to a challenging situation.
With some people, the fear goes far beyond what the situation requires. Instead of sharpening our responses, it becomes disabling. This is anxiety disorder.
It’s commoner than you might think. One in ten of the population will suffer from it at some point. It can have a serious effect on your life. Take heart; there are things you can do to help.
In this book you will find information and advice about different aspects of the condition: causes, symptoms, managing the illness, treatment, how others can help. Each is accompanied by a prayer.
The book is divided into two sections. Part A is for, or on behalf of, those with anxiety disorder. Part B is for family, friends and the wider community.
Half the royalties from this book will go to the charity Mind.
There are also blank pages where you may wish to add prayers you have written or discovered for yourself, and notes of other resources you have found useful.
