It is only human to worry about problems in our lives--but for some, obsessing for weeks and months, avoiding social events and situations due to feelings of panic can become a regular part of our lives. If any of these describe you or a loved one, then you or they may be almost anxious.
Those of us who are almost anxious may never address the issue because we don't fully meet the diagnostic criteria for an anxiety disorder. In Almost Anxious, Luana Marques, PhD, describes the spectrum of almost anxiety symptoms, from normal situational anxiety on one end to a full-blown diagnosable anxiety disorder on the other. Drawing on case studies and the latest research, she gives you the tools to:
Assess whether your or a loved one's worry is a problem
Gain insight on how to intervene with a loved one
Discover proven strategies to change unhealthy feelings of distress
Gauge the physical, psychological, and social impact of your anxiety symptoms
Determine when and how to get professional help when needed.

A very practical, understandable approach to anxiety that could be challenged by the individual VS more serious cases of anxiety which need more advanced consideration... loved the case studies!
This book really wasn't what I had expected. I do have anxiety but I didn't really find it helpful. All my opinion, but I just couldn't click with this book.
The book goes strait to the point, offer clear explanation and good exercises to help you learn more and if not deal by yourself with your almost anxiety, it will let you know that you should look for professional help. Very useful book.
