‘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.
