The Anxious Truth is a step-by-step guide to understanding and overcoming the anxiety problems that have plagued you for so long. At 70,000 words and 450 printed pages, the Anxious Truth goes well beyond just telling you that you can be OK. It actually tells you exactly how to do it!
You're anxious all the time, experiencing panic attacks over and over, and maybe afraid to leave your house or to be left alone for even a few minutes.. You are avoiding simple things like driving, eating in restaurants, attending family functions, or going to the supermarket. You are terrified of the next wave of anxiety or the next panic attack. Your anxiety problems are ruining your relationships, your family life, and your career.
Your anxiety problems have you afraid, confused, lost, and feeling hopeless. How did you get here? What went wrong? You've tried so many things, but nothing has cured your anxiety? What can you do now?
This book, written by a former anxiety sufferer, best-selling author of "An Anxiety Story", and host of The Anxious Truth podcast will walk you through exactly how you got to where you are today, why you are not broken or ill, and what the true nature of your anxiety disorder is. Next, the book will walk you through what it takes to solve your anxiety problems, how to make an anxiety recovery plan, then how to correctly execute that plan.
The Anxious Truth isn't always what you want to hear, but it's what you NEED to hear in order to solve this problem once and for all and move toward the life you so desperately want. Based firmly on the principles of cognitive-behavioral therapies that have been shown over decades to be most effective in treating anxiety problems, the Anxious Truth will teach you how to move past your anxiety symptoms, past endless digging for hidden "root causes", and into an action-oriented plan that will help your brain un-learn the bad reaction and fear habits that have gotten you into this predicament. The Anxious Truth will take the cognitive mechanism that got you into a corner, throw it in reverse, and use it to your advantage, backing you out of this jam and into a life free from irrational fear and needless avoidance.
More than just a book, The Anxious Truth goes hand-in-hand with The Anxious Truth podcast (https: //theanxioustruth.com) and the growing and vibrant social media community surrounding it. Read the book, listen to five years worth of free podcasts chock full of helpful advice and information, and join a large online community of fellow anxiety sufferers that are done talking about this problem and ready to actually take action to solve it.
Change is possible. No matter how long you've suffered with your anxiety issues, you can get better. The Anxious Truth will tell you what you need to hear and will arm you with the information, understanding, and skills you need to get the job done.
Let's do this together!
About the Author
Drew is the creator and host of The Anxious Truth, a slightly unorthodox anxiety podcast that's been in full swing since 2014. With over 2,000,000 downloads (and growing), The Anxious Truth has spawned a large and engaged social media community full of amazing people supporting and encouraging one another as they work to overcome anxiety and fear. Having suffered from anxiety, panic disorder, agoraphobia, and depression several times over a 20 year period, Drew got it together once and for all in 2008. Since then life has been happy, productive, and "normal" (although we'd all be hard-pressed to define normal at times).For the last 15 years, Drew has been active in the online anxiety community, working to use his experience and understanding to help those that are following down the path he's traveled. His no-nonsense approach to these problems and willingness to compassionately provide direct, actionable advice even when it might not be easy to hear, has established him as a unique voice in the community.In 2020, Drew published two books on anxiety and anxiety recovery. An Anxiety Story and The Anxious Truth have quickly become required reading for anyone suffering from anxiety and in need of education, instruction, inspiration, encouragement, and empowerment.
