Overview

Some people make it out alive . . . some do not. I was one of the fortunate ones. Inconceivable, unbearable terror ruined years of my life and the lives of those close to me. I began having panic attacks many years ago. Those episodes finally reached a peak and turned into debilitating agoraphobia. I became unable to leave the safety and comfort of my own home. I was unable to perform the simplest of tasks. Life became excruciatingly painful and I wanted it to end. Why in today's society do we hear so much about depression, anxiety, and panic? What predestines a person to this malady? How do we change it? I can only hope my story of humiliation, devastation, and extreme fear will touch someone who may be suffering. This book is filled with my pain but it is also laced with excitement and humor. I found both as I traveled the world looking for answers.

I have always wanted to write down the struggles I have had with my Panic Attacks along with my brother and sister. We all suffered and still do. I am so thankfull for this read. We have renewed hope and the author ,Le'Ann, made all lof us realize we are not alone. We are not crazy. We read the book quickly and look forward to another read from the author. thank you !Brad, Mike, and Katey

This author is living my life. I, too, suffered from this awful disease. It hurt something awful. Just knowing someone else put my feelings into words gives me some hope. I think Le'Ann deserves a lot of credit for baring her life struggles. I will look for more works from this interesting author.

I couldn't put the book down. It is a wonderful read filled with sadness, terror, and intrique. I loved the honesty. thanks for a great book and an interesting view of recovery. I bought six books for family members for Christmas gifts. Several suffer from depression and panic episodes.
