    EP 213 - Accepting Responsibility For Your Recovery ... But Not Blame Or Fault

    Accepting that you are responsible for your own recovery leads to empowerment and puts you in a position of strength.  But often responsibility is confused with blame or fault, which can lead us into bad places that we don’t need to visit.  Let’s talk about that in this week’s episode of The Anxious Truth.

    EP 212 - Spirituality In Recovery (w/ Joshua Fletcher)

    EP 212 - Spirituality In Recovery (w/ Joshua Fletcher)

    Spirituality. How does it factor into the recovery process?  What even is it?  How do we define it?  How does it relate to religion and faith?  How do those factor into recovery? All great questions that I have not paid enough attention to.  This week on The Anxious Truth UK psychotherapist and bestselling author Joshua Fletcher stops by for a great chat about spirituality, its many forms, and the roles it can play in anxiety recovery.  We need to spend more time on this topic from time to time, and we will!

    EP 208 - The Emotional Rollercoaster of Recovery and How To Get Off

    EP 208 - The Emotional Rollercoaster of Recovery and How To Get Off

    “Recovery is not linear”.  How many times have you heard this?

    There are ups and downs from day to day or even hour to hour.  Some days it seems like we’re killing it.  Other days we feel frustrated, impatient and discouraged. This is difficult to navigate.  It confuses us.  It also triggers an emotional reaction in many cases.  This week on The Anxious Truth let’s take a look at how that emotional reaction can create a pattern that will have you swinging from one recovery extreme to the other and back end.

a podcast that ~actually~ gets it

This podcast’s content, host, guests, and the community that I feel when listening is something that is helping me so much right now. I don’t relate directly to everything, but everything has brought me more peace in being someone that is traversing anxiety. I’ve had it since I was little and it’s been a journey. Previously, I had never turned to the community for support. When I found this podcast, I found it a little bit easier to keep going in this journey.

Great Anxiety Resource

I’ve listened to a lot of podcasts related to anxiety and this is one of my favorites. It’s practical and concise. It’s helped me a lot with GAD / panic disorder. Highly recommend!

Very helpful

“Worrying than panic attacks will lead to schizophrenia is no different than having a cold and worrying it will turn into the flu”

I’m paraphrasing but maybe the most helpful quote I’ve heard
