"At Last a Life"
My story of recovery from anxiety and panic
The title below came from my own dreams and from what others said to me:
"I just want my life back"
It is what we all want and we all can achieve, and is the reason I wrote the book. Anxiety robs us of so much; my dream through my own suffering was to just have my life back, a life that I took for granted before I suffered. My own experience of recovery still feels like a miracle. It felt so far away that I never thought I would see the day when I could finally say I no longer suffer. It felt so far away because I was never given any answers to the way I felt or why I stayed in the cycle. As soon as I found these answers, things started to make sense and I knew, I could at last begin to move forward.
I wrote this book on anxiety and panic for everyone out there who still struggle for answers on their condition. After my own recovery, I went on to study the whole subject of anxiety and panic in full. I was not content with just recovering myself, I also wanted to dedicate my life to helping others. This was exactly why I wrote the book and put the site together, so as to reach out to as many people as possible. I have no interest in becoming rich out of other people's suffering and selling them the newest miracle cure. I spent more money than I care to remember through my own darkest days, and it pains me to still see some of the false claims that are about on the internet.
Too many people fall into the cycle of anxiety because the right help and advice is not available to them at an earlier stage. I firmly believe that doctors and specialists are not given enough help to fully understand this condition and if I had one wish, it would be that more information on this debilitating condition was made available to them. This in itself could save so many years of needless suffering.
I am writing to say I cannot thank you enough. Your book, 'At Last A Life' has had a massive impact on my life.
I started to suffer from anxiety and subsequently panic attacks about four years ago and have battled with it/them every day since then. Battle is the only word to use. I have had to fight to retain a very responsible job, whilst constantly thinking the thoughts described in your book 'What is wrong with me', 'What must people be thinking about me', 'Why can't I speak properly', it has been dreadful and truly exhausting.
Your book has changed me: Instead of fighting against these thoughts and feelings, I now accept them and although, as you advise, recovery does not come overnight, I and my partner have seen and are still seeing big changes and a huge improvement, I am able to think much more clearly, able to handle my job again and I am all together a calmer person.
Once again, I cannot thank you enough for writing down your experiences and imparting the advice to help people like me heal themselves.
Your book is brilliant and is a must for anyone who suffers as we have.
One of my main aims in writing this book was to make it as easy as possible to read and understand; to get my message across from a sufferer's point of view and dilute all the jargon that you may have found hard to understand in the past. I also felt strongly that I had something else to say than had been churned out before, mainly by people who had never actually been through it. Every common symptom is explained in the book, not just the anxiety, but also, the feelings of unreality, the racing thoughts, feelings of dread, lack of confidence, depression, the constant worry cycle and many more symptoms that I have come across over the years.
I also receive emails on a regular basis from people who say "Paul it all makes sense now, you are the first person to not only help me, but actually tell me why I feel like I do". But why does it take someone like me to be able to give these answers? Anxiety is as common as any illness or condition out there, but is sadly brushed to one side and largely ignored, no wonder so many people suffer in silence.
The book gets tremendous feedback and has sold so many copies through recommendations. Many people tell me their own doctor or therapist has put them on to it and that is something I am very honoured to hear. It is also available on eBay in which it has sold over 800 copies in its short life and still has 100% feedback. So many people email to say it is by far the best thing they have ever picked up relating to the subject.
