Its easy to keep reading as patricia demonstrates characteristics that are stikingly similar to yourself or someone you know. At times outlandish, her account of anxiety strung circumstances according to the sufferer are comical and fun to read, making you laugh at loud at the idea of them. Those who suffer will find a comforting tone to pearsons descriptions, a " you aren't as crazy as you think you are" reassurance. Short, fun and unbiased view of how tough it can be to have thoughts and emotions.
