I know all about anxiety and all its debilitating effects Bebe, my 20s were riddled with every imaginable symptom there is associated with anxiety.
I’m so happy to read that you stumbled across the great little gem that also provided me with my eventual cure. Dr Claire Weekes was an Australian Dr and I believe she too experienced the anxiety state (nervous breakdown).
The acronym has remained embedded in my mind — F.A.F.L — Face, Accept, Float and Let time pass.
I always add a “U” before this acronym, standing for Understanding. Because as you know, without understanding what is going on and why, you can’t apply the acronym to its full effect. That was my light-bulb moment moment when I first read this treasured book — Dr Weekes always emphasized the Understanding.
I still have her tapes, which I had converted to CDs !
It remains single-handedly the BEST book I’ve ever read on Anxiety…
Thank you for this and for taking me back to my old Bible … 🙏
