Millions of people suffer from the mysterious and frightening symptoms that comprise the anxiety diseases. In this groundbreaking book, Dr. Thomas Leaman, founding Chairman of the first Department of Family Medicine at Pennsylvania State University, reveals the truth about the six kinds of anxiety diseases. As Dr. Leaman demonstrates, anxiety disease is not "just your nerves," or "all in your head." This often misdiagnosed, mistreated--or, even worse, untreated--disease cannot simply be controlled by pulling yourself together or improving your attitude. Anxiety is a real disease with identifiable biological and genetic causes as well as contributing social and environmental factors. With the compassion of a country doctor who has had nearly 40 years of practical experience, and the savvy of a keen diagnostician, Dr. Leaman reassures us that bizarre symptoms are not atypical, that they can be accurately diagnosed, and, most important, that they are not your fault.
