Here is the thing as I see it. We're all ready to be told that we have cancer, heart disease, MS, ALS, etc.
The problem is, we're not ready to hear what is really wrong with us - we have anxiety! We dismiss anxiety as something small, something that can harm us, something "stupid" but it's not.
Left to its own devices anxiety will destroy our lives but only if we let it! We need to accept our diagnosis of anxiety and treat the anxiety - not the diseases we "think" we have.
We need to treat the disease we actually have.
