Anxiety disorders are curable. Thanks to Sheri Vincent and

I would like to share my experience facing an anxiety disorder with people who are going through this hard period of life. It was about a year ago when my life dramatically changed – and, as I thought that time, irreversibly for the worse. Everything started suddenly and with no warning – one day I felt dizziness in my head, some kind of weakness in legs and overall feeling was bad – I was sure that I am going to pass out. First I thought it is nothing really serious and I need just a good sleep. But these anxiety symptoms did not go away. Even worse – they got more severe day by day. Thus from an active, successful guy with bright future I slowly became disabled person – even unable to leave my apartment.

Since doctors could not find physical health problems explaining the situation and I had a lot of free time and while sitting at home, I started to surf through Internet and found the name of my condition – anxiety disorder. I read many articles and blogs about this condition but the information didn’t help me much. Just the opposite – I found many people saying that this illness could not be treated. And the mere thought that I had to live the rest of my life like this drove me to despair.

But from my own experience I can say that it is absolutely not true, anxiety disorders are curable. And I can say this thanks to and especially to Sheri Vincent. When I found homepage of the website, I thought – “even I would not be able to describe my feelings and symptoms more precisely. They should really understand what my anxiety condition is.”

Weekly anxiety counseling with Sheri has helped me enormously. I have got my life back. And what is most surprising – this anxiety disorder has changed my life – it has made me a more relaxed and happy person.

The combination of good self-help information and working with an experienced anxiety disorder therapist, coach, or counselor is the most effective way to address anxiety and its many symptoms. Until the core causes of anxiety are addressed - we call these core causes the underlying factors of anxiety - a struggle with anxiety unwellness can return again and again. Dealing with the underlying factors of anxiety is the best way to address problematic anxiety.
