Ce livre est simple et agréable à lire car l'auteur a pris le partie de s'adresser au lecteur comme si elle recevait une personne dans son cabinet. Ce n'est donc pas de la théorie, mais de la pratique, et au fil de la lecture on se sent compris, soutenu, rassuré, etc...
Les conseils donnés sont très simples, et on pourrait se demander ce que cela apporte au final. Mais le livre dans son ensemble est plein de douceur et d'espoir, il donne des informations précises (médicales) qui rassurent énormément. L'auteur détaille bien tous les symptômes divers et variés, étranges et parfois effrayants que la personne (dont le système nerveux est déséquilibré) peut expérimenter. Les différents exercices proposés sont très simples et peuvent vraiment aider, même si ce n'est pas "miraculeux". Justement, voilà quelque chose d'important sur lequel elle insiste beaucoup : l'élément de base de la guérison est la patience, et la douceur envers soi. J'ai apprécié le fait qu'elle souligne que les personnes en souffrance au niveau du système nerveux sont généralement des personnes très (trop) exigeantes avec elles-mêmes, qui cherchent vraiment à faire les choses de leur mieux avec parfois un excès de zèle qui les rend nerveuses et anxieuses. L'autre clé de la guérison est donc d'accepter ses faiblesses, ses erreurs, accepter son état aussi. Oser en parler est aussi une aide, oser dire : "je ne vais pas bien" même si les autres ne sont pas toujours très à l'écoute.

HASH(0x9261239c) étoiles sur 5 A timeless gift to those who suffer from the torment of this illness. To all who struggle with anxiety/panic, please read 9 mars 2010
Par SMSeattle - Publié sur
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
My first episode of deep anxiety came upon me when I was 18 years old. There was much I didnt realize about myself, namely the way I really felt in my deepest places. For 3 days I did not sleep, eat or have a moment of peace. Pure panic would not leave, ebbing and flowing in terrible ways. I thought this was perhaps what losing ones mind felt like and that a hospital was the next step for me. There was an immense amount of self-pity and if-onlys that moved through me. More than all else, no one could understand what I was saying. I would use words like anxiety and see people try to access stressful moments in their life only to realize they had no idea what this felt like.

Over the years these episodes have continued and for so long I used modern terminology to describe them, such as major depressive episode and other DSM terms. I would spend days and days searching the internet, reading blogs, articles and more and NEVER NEVER finding anything that sounded like what I was going through. I heard a lot about disorders, like GAD and it all pointed to mental illness. I have tried to avoid anti-depressants my whole life as wish to see if this pain has a purpose, and I do not wish to block it, but recently had decided to begin on a series due to how exhausted I was with a recent episode that has been on and off for a month. For so long I waded through my sub-conscious, sought therapy, dug into my childhood, analyzed and analyzed and analyzed everything desperate to discover the cause and the root of this demon within. Just when I felt like I understood something, some new aspect of the problem would present itself and it was all back to the beginning.

For me, I never related to the panic attacks that I heard a lot about. There seemed to be a blurred line, but I never felt like I was dying, or like my heart was going to explode. I had cold sweats, and racing pulse, and heart beating out of my chest, but it lasted for hours, not minutes and panic attacks didn't sound like what I had, although MENTALLY I was in a full on panic often. This book clarifies the difference and the reasons why they are the same.

I offer this story because I believe after reading this book, that I was never alone. Due to the complexity of terms now and the fact that so much is simply labeled mental illness and disorders there is no help to be found for FACING our problems and our anxiety, just new ways to label things and new medications to help us not feel. The truth is that often times those who suffer from this illness are beautiful souls who feel the depth of beauty in this world more acutely than many others and this sensitivity is why they love so deeply, feel the pain of others as if it were their own and why they are the poets, artists, dreamers, inventors, who taste the stuff of God in every breath, yet these powers when out of balance can create madness and chaos because of our sensitivity. Understanding such factors as the sympathetic nervous system being out of balance and the anxiety finding fuel in thinking patterns that are destructive was huge for me. To learn to let a thought float, to accept it, and pass through it, no matter how uncomfortable it was was pure poetry to understand. In time I learned that this anxiety was a messenger, and the message had grown so loud as to be deafening because I had ignored the whispers, the quiet pleas, and the loud protestations of my inner life and the deeper hidden feelings for far too long. When the anxiety came, I learned to view it as a welcome guest, here to deliver a precious gift to me. For the first time I stopped fighting and learning to bring no hatred, denial, or rage to my anxiety, but instead to bring compassion and curiosity to it. Once this dynamic was changed, everything changed.

This book stands apart from ANYTHING else I have yet found. I am sure there is other useful material out there, but please get this book if you struggle with any kind of deep anxiety. We know how much this can hurt, and how it can be truly living hell to endure. Worse than all else, anxiety changes the very way we see the world, blurring the truth and clouding needed judgement. Please begin the process of getting the help you need from a doctors whose life work lives on in each of us. Her love is plain, her concern so deeply felt even in the way she writes. She knows what it is to endure this, somehow she knows and more than this she gives the way out for those who are able to realize the truth of her words.

You are not alone. Remember it is often your beauty which can turn too deeply inward and creates fear which when met with a serious problem/conflict can result in a nervous explosion. This is the way out, along with love from others, and the help of God where faith is already in place. I deeply hope that all might find a way to welcome this very challenging problem and the pain it brings as a wonderful gift and invite it in and cease to do battle with it. This is the beginning of all change I believe, to cease to war, and to insist that even the most painful experiences carry with them the light of deeper truth, and are in fact gifts from the recesses we may have long ago abandoned.

May you be blessed on the journey and I very much hope this book can help you begin or take another step as it did me.

HASH(0x922245ac) étoiles sur 5 I WAS AT A BREAKING POINT! A WRECK! This 25 Cent Book SAVED My Life! 21 février 2005
Par Peter V. Cannice - Publié sur
Format: Poche
I was in my early 20's and experiencing severe anxiety that consumed me. I had a medical education but was never taught about panic attacks or severe anxiety states. As a matter of fact, the medical school that I attended seemed to cover just about everything there was to know about psychiatry (at least at the level that I was currently at) with the exception of the sort of anxiety that can consume you and destroy your life.

I was having these attacks of severe anxiety, odd thoughts would race around my mind, my heart would race at rates as high as 200 beats per minute, I'd sweat profusely, my arms and legs would go numb, at times I would fall to the ground and pass out, and I felt as though I was coming out of my own skin. And the people around me couldn't usually tell that anything was going on. I became an expert at hiding this illness that I had no definition for. I would have done anything to find a cure for this "illness" I had. There were numerous times that I was convinced that I was having a heart attack. I'd run to the clinic at the school I was going to and be seen by a resident who would assure me that my heart was fine. Perhaps I had a flutter in my heart or something wrong with my thyroid gland or my adrenals. Tests showed I was fine. One after another, test after test, I'd be told that everything checked out just fine.

But I was dying inside. I felt crippled in a horrible way. It became so bad that I feared some public places. Mys favorite pizza place where I'd visit about 3 times per week, at the local mall in Des Moines, was always a place of joy and respit for me. The food was great and it was so enjoyable to be around fellow Italians. All was fine at the pizza parlor until the day I had a panic attack while waiting in line for my order. I fell to the floor and begged my friends to take me out of the mall. I just had to get outside to get some air. I thought I was losing my mind.

After a very long battle and after many visits to therapists, psychiatrists and other healtcare providers, I went to a meeting that was listed in the paper for people with anxiety. I could barely make it to the door, but was assisted by a friend who was trying to help me. The meeting was no very enjoyable, however on the way out of the meeting place I saw a book that was on the table. It was on sale for just 25 cents! I read the back of the book, entitled "Hope and Help for Your Nerves", by Dr. Claire Weekes, and found enough information to grab my attention. I was at the end of my rope. I had no idea that this 25 cent investment would change my life forever.

I've never read a book so fast in my life. I started to read it on the way home from the meeting I attended for people with anxiety. I was happy to get home as home was my "safe place" and the breeding grounds for my agoraphobia. By the end of that night I had read the book 2 times. I connected with absolutely everything in the book. Medicine hadn't worked. Psychotherapy didn't help me. Religion wasn't paying off. Meditation couldn't touch my severe panic states.

Claire Weekes is to be commended for many things. I wish, deep down in my heart, that there was a way for me to contact her to let her know that she saved my sanity and probably my life too. The book was filled with information that made total sense to me. She described what was causing the anxiety states and precisely what was happening in my body. She also repeated that I'd never die from a panic attack. Actually, not a soul has ever died from a panic attack. It sure feels like you're about to die or lose your mind. But have faith as help is around the corner.

I would never suggest a book to help cure an illness unless I knew 100% that the information was true and helpful. I'm telling you that this book saved my life, saved my relationships and kept me from even thinking I was crazy. Less than one week after reading the book, I realized I had not had any panic attacks. I feared that they would sort of pop out of the blue and grab me when I wasn't watching out. But Claire Weekes even described this type of pre-panic anxiety states. Months later I had mastered how to deal with anxious situations and how to breathe through and accept my panic-should it happen again.

It doesn't matter how long you've been suffering from your anxiety disorder or panic state. It's not a situation where the length of time you've spent with the illness will determine the length of your recovery time. This is one of those special freebies in life. Everyone wins by reading Hope and Help for Your Nerves. I still find time to read it and I'm reminded each time that I'm going to be fine and that I will never die from one of these panic attacks and my fear of having an attack in public isn't realistic now that I've read the book.

I suggest this book for anyone who is suffering. Suffer no longer and purchase this book or check out a copy at the library. If money is a real issue, please email me and I will see if I can find a used copy for you. And for those people out there who have loved ones with anxiety problems or panic attacks-this book is perfect for you. There is plenty of information that will explain what your loved one is experiencing. It will also help you take care of yourself and allow you to not feel responsible.

Clearly, this is one of the best books I've ever read. It is the best of true non-fiction and has saved the sanity of more lives than I can imagine. I would never pitch anything I didn't believe in. And this small book has added more to my life than I could ever have dreamed of. I went from being agoraphobic and locked in my home, to hosting telethons in front of thousands of people. It really works and I wish you all the luck in the world. No matter what your situation, you will find peace in reading this book.

Please feel free to email me or start a discussion through I know what you are going through. I, too, was where you are today. Take a deep breathe and know that this will pass, what is happening is natural and can be controlled and healed forever.

My warm wishes to all. And if anyone knows of a way for me to meet Dr. Claire Weekes, the author who saved my life, please let me know.

I sure hope this review helped in some way.

HASH(0x924685a0) étoiles sur 5 very helpful 7 août 2000

This book should be extremely helpful to anxiety-disorder sufferers. I would like to mention, though, that the "feelings of unreality" chapter is a little misleading, in that it suggests that the feelings will fade faster than they actually might. Weekes suggests feelings of unreality (also known as depersonalization neurosis) will fade in a few months if one remains active, despite the symptoms. (Remaining active despite the symptoms is the key.) It tends to take longer than a few months, and the symptoms tend not to fade, but lift in "layers." The symptoms will fade only very little, but then there will be a dramatic thinning of the symptoms all at once! It often takes a number of layers to lift before you are back to feeling normal. So don't get discouraged if you haven't seen progress despite being active. Because tomorrow may be the day when a layer lifts! Anyway, this book is very helpful for people. I would like to mention that the comedian/actor Steve Martin (as he's related in a 1980 "Playboy" interview and elsewhere) suffered from panic attacks for years when he was a writer for the "Smothers Brothers Show." He wouldn't go to movie theaters for years out of fear that he would suffer a panic attack in the theater. But then he read up on panic disorders, and was able to cure himself of them. He was cured of them so totally, that he was then able to go on and become a top comedian and then a movie star. If Steve Martin can cure himself of a crippling anxiety disorder, then so can you! And this book should help.

HASH(0x924f7210) étoiles sur 5 Finally cured :) 26 novembre 2007

My nightmare started one afternoon. My heart wouldn't stop beating, my stomach wouldn't stop churning. I was always sweaty, trembling and had a metallic taste in my mouth. My situation began to worsen in a few days.

I went to the doctor and was prescribed anti-anxiety drugs. I was too scared to take them. I could not sleep and just before I thought that it couldn't get any worse, I got my first panic attack. I was horrified and shaken. I could not get off my bed for the whole day. I was too terrified and depressed. The panic attacks became frequent and I even began getting them in my sleep and in my dreams, but I refused to take any medicine.

This book saved me. I owe my life to Claire Weekes. When you reed the book you cannot stop crying because of the compassion that she shows us who suffer from anxiety disorders. I read the book several times. I even bought her audio recordings. I then began following her approach and stopped going to forums. Mainly because the forums had people suffering from disorders for decades and that made me depressed.

The recovery took hardly a few weeks. A fair warning is that you have to really follow her instructions by heart. Within the first week, I was 50% better and now-a-days I am almost recovered. I can live again finally!!!!

I still sometimes get some sensations but I just "face", "accept", "float" and let the "time pass' :)

A must buy for anyone suffering from any degree of nervous illness. I am not good with words and wish that there was someway I could convince the sufferers to buy this book.

HASH(0x9241fba0) étoiles sur 5 THIS BOOK WILL GIVE YOU YOUR LIFE BACK!!!! 20 décembre 2010
Par Nadia - Publié sur

I would never have believed that a simple book could make such a dramatic impact on my life. It sounds too good to be true, I know. But TRUST me on this: If your body has been doing crazy things lately (in my case it was numbness and tingling in hands and feet, nausea and vomiting, dizziness, feeling like my body was vibrating, muscle spasms, shortness of breath, racing heart) and you've been told by your doctor there is nothing physically wrong with you, BUY THIS BOOK. If you're so anxious that you are convinced that you must be losing your mind, you feel detached from reality and from others, your thoughts race all the time, and you think weird or irrational thoughts, or feel fearful most of the time, BUY THIS BOOK.

Guys, I was in graduate school getting my master's in PSYCHOLOGY when I started feeling this way, and I still had never been taught the wise information in this little old book. I am a very logical, evidence-based thinker, so this book was perfect for me. Dr. Weekes lists symptom after symptom after symptom of "nervous illness," as she calls it, and whatever symptoms you are experiencing are virtually guaranteed to be in the list. She then explains, logically and scientifically (she was an M.D) exactly why you body is doing these crazy things to you and making you feel weirder and crazier than you ever would have thought possible. It all boils down to being too stressed for too long. We come to be afraid of the way our body is behaving and making us feel, and eventually we become vigilant, freaking out over every little weird feeling in our body, convinced something terrible must be wrong with us.

I cannot stress this enough: This book will SET YOU FREE. I was rendered non-functional by my anxiety, as in, couldn't work, couldn't attend school, couldn't cook, couldn't socialize with my family, couldn't do ANYTHING. It's been four months now and I am doing way better than I was even before I was struck with debilitating anxiety. The single biggest factor in that transformation was this book. Not months of $95 an hour therapy, not medication, not meditation (although I heartily recommend all of those, they do help a lot), but THIS BOOK. If what you have been going through sounds at all like what I have been going through, BUY THIS BOOK. I promise you will be feeling better within the first few pages!!!

Other books that are helpful for anxiety are "Essential Help for Your Nerves," also by Dr. Claire Weekes, and The Feeling Good Handbook, by Dr. David D. Burns. I read several others that were NOT helpful as well!! But none were as monumentally and immediately helpful as "Hope and Help for Your Nerves." Best of luck!! =)
