Ok. Mine is called it's not all in your head. I may have to try more. I'm willing to read all of them. Let me know what it teaches you. They all might teach same things. So far mine has covered some good stuff. Haven't gotten to the self help tools yet it's just doing some explaining on things. Asking questions ect.

One interesting part is how we become very sensitive to our body's sensations and notice things we never have before. What it pointed out was a couple who just had a baby and brought it home for first night. And they use a baby monitor to hear the baby. Well they become more aware of sounds in the house that they wouldn't before.
Just like if someone on your neighborhood was to get robbed and you would super nervous and probably every sound would make you jump. I remember when I was a little one and believed in santa clause I would focus on the sounds in the house seeing if I could hear him and I would hear sounds that would think it was him. Just like our body sensations we feel Eveything and we get jumpy, anxious, tense.

I 100% agree. I have noticed that I am hypersensitive to anything my body does that I haven't noticed before. I'm 16 so not to go too tmi, but I know Im being that way because anytime i get a pimple I can feel it coming. I had never noticed that before so I know Im paying alot more attention then I used too.

I cannot wait for my book to come in because reading has always been an escape for me!

You are very young and you have your life ahead of you and a 16 year old body should be quite healthy. I really hope the book helps you so you can break free of the cycle and live your life to the fullest. ;)

I know I am healthy (apart from my HA). Had so many tests done it is very very unlikely that anything is wrong. Doubt likes to creep back in my mind and my anxiety takes off.  :happy0151:

Oh yeah I know the feeling. It's good you are helping yourself though. You can't fail if you keep trying.

I am on Zoloft 50mg, but am going up to 100mg. Zoloft would never be my first choice of SSRI, but I am breastfeeding and it doesn't pass into breastmilk, so it is the one I have to take for now. I also take a very low dose of oxabenz/serax when I am really bad off.
