Although I have never used the book I have had several recommendations about a book called "The Panic and Anxiety Workbook". I believe it is by David Burnes. I know some people from my support group that have worked through it and said it was really helpful. Worth a look I think!

Back in 2004 i went to emergency services for my anxiety and other issues and at one point i was seeing a really good dr. who had me read a really good book by this guy Albert Ellis, i can't remember the name of the book but it was about how our thoughts control our emotions. it made a lot of sense and i still try really hard to remember that if i could just not think the way i do i wouldn't feel the way i do but its hard. it's been years since i read that book but i remembered the authors name and just did a search on Amazon and he apparently wrote a book about anxiety called "How To Control Your Anxiety Before It Controls You", it looks to have really good reviews and might be worth checking out. I'm going to see if my library has it, my anxiety is already controlling me. I'm sure there are also many other books as well i just remembered this guy wrote a book that i found very intelligent so i thought i'd tell you about him. it was refreshing to have a dr shove a book on me instead of just pills.
I suggest you start at the library and see if there are any books relating to your particular type of anxiety. You might also check with your mental health adviser or health care provider to see if they have any recommendations that can help you. I have had some that helped me along the way but it just takes a lot of hard work to learn to deal with one's issues. Best wishes and I hope that someone might have an idea for you. Nola
