In this episode, I talk with Shannon Jackson (IG: @ahealthypush), an anxiety coach, wife, mom, and podcaster - roles she never thought she'd play due to her debilitating anxiety, panic, and agoraphobia. In this episode, we discuss..
- her story of growing up with debilitating anxiety, panic, agoraphobia, and other difficulties that made everyday activities unbearable
- examples of intense struggle including being unable to drive, difficulty going to work, and always needing to have her "safe place"
- how fighting physiological symptoms of anxiety actually makes you panic more, and what to do instead
- how she helps other individuals overcome panic, anxiety, and fear while navigating recovery herself
