Owning it: Your Bullsh*t-Free Guide to Living with Anxiety
By Caroline Foran
For those facing the same struggle, Caroline explores exactly what anxiety is, its triggers and the various treatments - from CBT, acupuncture, diet and the often debated role of medication - that worked for her. With honesty, humour and a bullsh*t free perspective, Owning It is a no-frills account of anxiety from the front line.
'Offers a frank and funny approach to the ins and outs of anxiety - what it is, why it happens, and how to manage it. I love Caroline Foran's message of self-acceptance and leaning into mental illness rather than trying to outrun it. Highly recommended!' Sarah Knight, bestselling author of Calm the F**k Down
THE NUMBER ONE BESTSELLER - A bullsh*t free perspective and a no-frills account of anxiety from the front line.
Through the filtered lens of social media, it may seem like life's a peach, but for lots of people - journalist and author Caroline Foran included - anxiety is always bubbling beneath the surface. Here, she chronicles her experiences. From being unable to cope with the thought of venturing outside, to walking away from her fast-paced job, to the different, and sometimes controversial, treatments available - from Cognitive Behavioural Therapy to acupuncture to medication - Caroline shows us how she eventually found a way of owning her anxiety so that it doesn't own her.
With extensive research and help from the experts, Owning It is written with honesty and a bullsh*t-free perspective; consider it your ultimate, practical guide that aims to get you feeling good again.
