5.0 out of 5 stars Old, but still the best May 13 2004
By William
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I am a clinical psychologist who has treated many people with panic disorder and agoraphobia. Claire Weekes' books are remarkably helpful. I ask every patient with panic disorder to read this book. It is interesting to me that the book was written before the term "panic disorder" was a common term and the book does not say it is for treatment of "panic." The descriptions of the panic experience are so descriptive, however, that every patient recognizes immediately that Dr. Weekes knows about panic. I have often heard patients say something like "it seemed like she was in my mind and body because she knew just what I was experiencing.
The terminology is out of date. However, the wisdom is just as useable now as when the book was written.

Format:Mass Market Paperback
One of the customer reviewers said a million stars wouldn't be enough. Claire Weekes is a saint if you ask me. This book has saved mine and I don't even know how many lives. God bless her wherever she is now because if she can't get into heaven......nobody will. Buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Happy to see this book is still around Feb. 21 2009
By Diane C
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read this book 32 years ago and it literally saved my life. I had gone through such a terrible psychological trauma that I just couldn't get over it. I had been suicidal for months and the psychiatrists I put my thrust into just made the whole thing grow worse and worse. I finally left this big city hospital and its lousy staff and went back to my hometown, but with little hope of ever going any better. If I had to die, I wanted to do it at home, I told myself.
Then I fell on this book by accident. Sheer luck, I would say. It was right on target. It gave a name to my misery and a way out of it.
I still have it - as a memento, and also as a useful tool to pass on if I ever meet some poor soul stuck in the same hellish nightmare I knew once.
If you ever know somebody suffering from such a plight and feeling totally helpless about it, please, give this person a chance with this book. That may make a difference between life or death.

5.0 out of 5 stars The world has not caught up with Dr. Weeks work Aug. 6 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I've suffered from anxiety and panic attacks and agoraphobia for over 6 years. I thought I was alone until I found Dr. Claire Weekes book. Her advice and explanations and my hard work led to recovery. I since helped start up and lead a self-help group based on her teachings. I've read many books on this topic and I have found Dr. Claire Weekes to be the absolute BEST. Any question you have, any symptom you experience, she explains. There is a pattern to this illness and she helps you understand this, there is a path into this illness and there is a path OUT. Many could be spared much suffering if we had been educated along the way about our natural responses to prolonged stress. Dr.Weekes has since passed on but she has left a wonderful gift of freedom to those who follow her advice.

This last paragraph is the entry I made in 1999 and now in 2012 I am still soooo grateful for Dr. Claire Weekes understanding of this problem. I wish everyone could read and understand how our body and mind work together. If we understood how we got ourselves into this state we could lose our fear of it and relax and eventually we would desensitize and feel great again. The world has not caught up with Dr. Weeks work and understanding. I'd recommend you read at least one of her books if you are ill (and even if you aren't) and follow her advise and it will prove to you that there is an answer to your prayers.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Dr. Claire Weekes really had a handle on what causes anxiety and how it can escalate into chronic levels.
In her books she lays out a common sense approach to understanding it and resolving the condition.

I wish she were still around today!

5.0 out of 5 stars I promise it gets better Dec 20 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
After having serious panic attacks and developing phobias and OCD behaviours since 2007 life seemed to be stuck in the past and it seemed to hurtful to continue even living.
I never thought that stopping medication after 6 years could be so difficult really, so I stopped and everything seemed OK, but 2 months later PUM!!! the big shock I had the biggest relapse ever! couldn't sleep, couldn't eat, couldn't drive, work, or anything, I was just NOT self sufficient and yes I was completely in a downward spiral towards the most hurtful place a human being could ever experience.
I end up in the hospital for the 5th time in my life 'cause this anxiety was something I just couldn't cope. I was admitted in psychiatric help and I just remember screaming "Please put me back on meds or do just something to remove this nightmare I am living in!!!". The doctor didn't seemed to impress with my desperation and she just told me: "I can't medicate you, this is a battle you need to overcome just using your mind and no medication is necessarily, but wait, she said: I have a plan for you, go back home and read this book starting tomorrow and come back in a week"
It's been 3 months since that happened and even though I am not completely fine, I could say I feel 80% better, I haven't been so disciplined applying the techniques either because I feel that I can cope with the way I am feeling now. It is really sad but you have the tendency of feeling just bad and you just get used to.
Other thing that has really helped me has been mindfulness meditation, and I think that this kind of meditation is exactly what Dr. Weekes meant when she said on the chapter that talks about Masterly Inactivity it is exactly what mindfulness meditation is about.
