Example text

The lifestyle awareness discussion does not give advice, nor does it tell us how to make changes in our lives. Its purpose is to raise our level of awareness of how we deal with everyday life situations and how this affects our anxiety level. In most cases it simply reframes the situation so we can see it from a more helpful perspective. In some cases it suggests an alternative approach. Whereas the anxiety management strategies help us manage our symptoms, the lifestyle awareness topics make us aware of possible environmental sources of anxiety and panic.

For some anxietypanic sufferers, being told that their condition is hereditary gives them the feeling that they've just been given a life sentence. They see themselves as trapped in a situation over which they have no control, and they may give up trying to get well. Others feel a sense Page 6 of relief, because seeing their problem as genetic frees them from shame.

Embracing the Fear reassures us that we are still in charge of our lives, that there is something we can do about our anxiety and panic attacks, and that there is recovery.

Or perhaps we had a parent who was overly protective, which gave us the message that we were living in an unsafe world and could not take care of ourselves.
