Hi gibbo

I found dr Claire weekes self help for your nerves very helpful when I was ill and didn't understand what was happening to me. She explains it well and makes it less frightening. I felt more in control when id read it. I've read the book 3/4 times now and it's easy to read love eve x

hi Gibbo 1981.. Have just seen your post, so am sorry for lateness of response. Overcoming Panic and Agoraphobia by Derrick Silove and Vijaya Manicavasagar (available on Amazon and can be ordered through good bookshops) is brilliant. I think another member suggested, The Overcoming series, as a good resource and this is probably the book suggested...not sure so,have given details for you to check it out. I have it and it explains panic and anxiety in great detail and would work super well if you choose to have some CBT to go alongside it. I am certain you will find informative, comforting and a great place to begin when you are ready to tackle your anxiety and panic disorder. Good Luck... PD7979 xx
