Chapter 4 of Claire Weekes’ Hope and Help For Your Nerves. This chapter is entitled “The Commonest, Simplest forms of Nervous Illness”.
In this episode we discuss:
- Common anxiety symptoms
- Being over-sensitized (everything is a trigger!)
- The role of fear and how fear of how we feel is what is keeping us “nervously ill”
- Why understanding and knowledge of what the situation is so helpful and important as a first step
- Why fighting against your anxiety, panic and fear, while a common approach, is often the wrong thing to do
Comments, questions and angry rants are always welcomed!
