Hello and I am sorry your having a bad day. IMHO I feel you need to seek professional help to see what your physician would suggest re the use of medication or getting into therapy, not just reading the book.
I am a firm believer in using the meds if they are needed. Yes you can recover from your symptoms, perhaps you will not be 100% anxiety free but much better than your current situation.
Keep posting and we are glad to have you here with us.
I would prefer self help recovery books and valium type meds
recovery via CBT and meds is the most successful method
if you do nothing and just keep tensing up and fighting back then, IMO, things wont get better, it doesnt go away on its own eventually
