I am writing to let you know how inspiring and how lucky I feel to have come across your book, DEPRESSION IS A CHOICE..I am almost at the end of the book, and already everything you write makes perfect sense to me. I am eager to move on to the next one, on brainswitching, and put in practice some of the exercises.
Also, I am not at present dealing with depression really, but more with anxiety and panic, generalized. It is all quite recent, since several months ago after an operation..
At first I didn't know what it was, I thought something physically wrong was going on: palpitations, difficulty breathing, feeling numb and just very scared. After many exams nothing seems to be wrong health-wise. As a woman in my late 30s I should be healthy.
I am currently starting cognitive therapy and I also started reading your book, which is a blessing for me. I know that anxiety and panic can easily lead to depression, but fortunately, I think I started to address the problem early so I hope I can manage the problem before I can find myself depressed. I was wondering if you have specific exercises or advices for managing panic and anxiety. What really bothers me is that I can't stop thinking about my health, I worry all the time even though my exams are perfectly ok. Have I developed some! kind of hypochondriac psychosis?
Also I have never worried about my health before and so this is the more overwhelming. .
Thank you in advance for you answer and thank you for your books and insight
