Just a quick note to wish you a very Happy New Year.
As we think back on the last year we can often tend to focus on what went wrong rather than what went right. There are some of you who might feel it was not as anxiety free as you wished it could have been. If that is the case with you I want you to take solace in the fact that the road to recovery almost always has setbacks along the way.
Recovering from panic attacks or GAD is never linear like getting over a cold. You take 2 steps forward and one back. What you have to remember is that you never fail as long as you keep trying. Progress is hard track, things can be really tough and then suddenly it is like a cloud has lifted and your mind seems no longer as anxious as it was before.
Happy New Year
