Worrywarts are characterized by chronic anxiety, enslavement to out-of-control thoughts, and haranguing themselves to a degree that triggers FUD — fear, uncertainty, and doubt. Smart worriers take control of their worry by creating a time and place to do the work of worry, objectively studying their behavior to better understand how to worry effectively, and practicing flexible thinking rather than rut thinking. Smart worriers look for solutions, including partial solutions, and accept what can’t be changed, challenge their worries, practice making under-reactive statements that defuse anxiety rather than fuel it. The Worrywart’s Companion offers a smorgasbord of tools to help readers become smart worriers, including deep breathing and muscles relaxing exercises, practicing deliberate belly laughing, saying a prayer, doing a good deed, taking a walk, rocking oneself, counting details to keep one’s mind off of the worry, and more. When smart worriers finish the work of worry, they purposefully soothe themselves so that they can move on to other activities. The Worrywart’s Companion helps disquieted readers integrate soothing activities into their daily lives to keep worry-provoking anxiety in check.

Dealing with an anxiety disorder is hard, but loving someone with an anxiety disorder can be equally as difficult. If your partner suffers from extreme anxiety, they may have panic attacks, constantly be voicing their worried thoughts, or may not be able to participate in social events because of a fear of social settings. No matter how compassionate you are, you may sometimes feel frustrated, unable to help, and even find your own life restricted—all of which can lead to conflict, resentment, miscommunication, and ultimately, an end to the relationship altogether. Loving Someone with Anxiety is one of the few books written specifically for the partners of people with anxiety disorders. The book is designed not only to aid you in helping your partner cope with anxiety and worry, but also to help you take care of your own needs. Inside, you’ll learn the importance of setting healthy boundaries, limiting codependent behaviors, and why taking over roles that make your partner anxious—such as answering the phone, driving, or doing the grocery shopping because your partner feels too anxious to be in public—can be extremely damaging for the both of you. Codependency in relationships with an anxious partner can lead to resentment, anger, and a sense of helplessness on your side. This book will help you and your partner overcome these negative behaviors, build better communication and a stronger personal connection. Written by a licensed professional counselor who specializes in helping the partners of those with mental illnesses, this book is the resource that you have been looking for to help you understand your anxious partner and keep anxiety from sabotaging your relationship.

Douglas Pollock McCloud was twenty-five when he first experienced the effects of panic disorder with agoraphobia (PDA). The year was 1968—twelve years before The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders listed formal diagnostic criteria for the condition. Panic Disorder with Agoraphobia recounts the past fifty years of medical history as it pertains to PDA. McCloud shares his own experiences with PDA diagnosis and treatment, including his personal search for answers while he waited for psychiatry to catch up with his symptoms. McCloud details the early days of PDA treatment, the different psychiatric and psychotherapeutic approaches to the disorder, and the inevitable growing pains required to achieve proper diagnostic results. He pays special attention to the often-contentious debate concerning antianxiety and antidepressant medication as initial treatments for PDA. A treasure trove of information for anyone interested in panic disorder with agoraphobia, McCloud's story discusses important medical professionals and their contributions to PDA diagnosis and treatment, as well as the role people living with PDA have had in their own treatment. Fifty years ago little help was available as McCloud struggled with the debilitating effects of PDA. Today, there's both treatment and hope."
