As a man, you feel castrated when hit with Panic disorder. All the things you used to do, used to love to do, and still want to do (like going for a hike, camping, taking a day-drive to the beach, driving to the country, even going to the store!) felt impossible for me. It was extremely saddening and depressing. Then, I got this book.
This book helped me just as much as therapy did. I only wanted to take medicine/anti-depressants as a last resort; and I never had to.
I can now drive on my own no problem and simply function! I don't wake up every day being reminded what I can't do. I haven't flown alone yet since this happened, but the idea doesn't scare me nearly as much as when I started. I am completely over "being alone", can drive with zero problem, even far from home, take elevators (with other people... I just hate those things ha), and feel virtually "cured." "Cure" is a bad word for anxiety sufferers, but I'll just say, I trust myself to handle panic attacks in the future. I can get through them, I always have. Future me is always ready for them.
Watching the authors videos on his website helped put a face to the words in the book, which as the other reviewers noted feels like he's sitting right next to you. I was literally saying "holy crap" every other page in this book at how exact he was describing what I was going through.
Combine this book with therapy, just so you have some accountability on what thoughts you're internalizing without realizing it, EXERCISE, and taking some vitamins, and you will be very surprised.
God Bless Dr. Carbonell.
I couldn't drive anywhere really. The horrific and paralyzing fear was just too great. I purchased this book two months ago and started practicing immediately after hurriedly (but thoroughly) reading it all the way through and following his suggestions to the letter. Now here I am, two months later, about to take off on a 500 mile trip to see my daughter and I’m completely calm and confident.
YOU CAN DO THIS!! It will NOT be easy, no, not at all but please KNOW you can! When that day of freedom finally comes you will be beyond glad, you will be and feel many wonderful things.
Important Note: I temporarily developed generalized anxiety while practicing as my nerves were raw. Not realizing what was going on I thought something horrible must be wrong with me and I nearly quit shortly after I started. I later learned about being extremely sensitized, that it was normal in the first few weeks, and that it would pass. I really didn’t believe it would pass but it did. I used the techniques from Hope and Help for Your Nerves by Claire Weekes to get through the generalized anxiety while practicing to overcome the driving phobia. I highly recommend you have it in your arsenal before starting out on your road to recovery and freedom. It’s very old school. You just have to chuckle and look past that. She did mention using medication but you don’t need it. If you’re like me, you think you need it, you think it’s the only answer, but it’s not and it would be another thing you would have to work through later so why do that to yourself. So thankful I didn’t.
