Take Control of Your Worry : Take Control of Your Worry is the first authoritative book that gives hope to anyone who suffers from generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). Until now there has been no book that gives information about the nature and treatment of GAD, a crippling and distressing disorder. GAD is characterized by almost constant worry about almost anything. An individual 'with the worry illness' can never relax. They often sleep poorly and feel constantly on edge. At times the worry can be so severe it leads to panic attacks. And all the while the unrelenting worry drains the sufferer of energy, causing them to feel constantly exhausted. This clear, easy-to-read book contains illustrative case examples, and also a number of practical exercises to assist the sufferer in overcoming this debilitating disorder.
