    Wow, after finishing this book I feel like I need to take a deep breath. As someone who suffers from an anxiety disorder, I found much of what Amanda feels/thinks/experiences mimics my own life. Her story in many ways isn't my own, but so much resonated. Amanda spent years of her life ...

    Wow, after finishing this book I feel like I need to take a deep breath. As someone who suffers from an anxiety disorder, I found much of what Amanda feels/thinks/experiences mimics my own life. Her story in many ways isn't my own, but so much resonated. Amanda spent years of her life ...

    Couldn't put this down. Brilliant, heartbreaking, riveting portrayal of growing up in NYC with an undiagnosed panic disorder. I was completely immersed in Amanda's world. Her descriptions of being a child struggling to understand and interact with the world around her were incredibly e...

    Stern does a fabulous job of putting the reader inside the head of someone who struggles with anxiety. I felt her confusion and pain and so wished I could tell those around her to pay more attention. How do you get to 25 without someone realizing that you have a condition that can be h...

    Honestly, it's hard for me to even fathom the fact that I just read a book about a real person that suffers from the same disorder I do. I feel so validated even though this book was hard to read at times because of how close to home it hit. This book was wonderful in all ways. Thank y...

    Memoirs of anxiety are exhausting to read. ...

    Amanda's experiences of growing up with an undiagnosed anxiety disorder is tragically common. It is so impressive that Amanda remembers growing up with the disorder and how it made her think and feel. From the outside it seems obvious that she has a family history of anxiety, it is sad...

    Reading this book was tedious and exhausting. The fact that she appears to come from an intelligent family and never got the help or diagnosis she needed until she was 25, is confusing and puzzling. I could not wait for it to end, and was amazed that she ever got the book published...

    Amanda suffered from a anxiety disorder due to growing up between divorced parents. One living in Greenwich Village, the other in uptown manhattan. At thirty nine>still single and childless she longed to have that close family that she never had growing up. ...

    DNF ...

    This is a fascinating insight into one woman's mind. Whether you struggle with anxiety yourself or not, this book demonstrates how those who suffer from mental illness are battling their own brains. ...

    The book brings you the life of a lady who lived/suffered her life with different lens, or dare I say a totally different world of having panic disorder. ...
