My Age of Anxiety: Fear, Hope, Dread, and the Search for Peace of Mind by Scott Stossel

Book recommendation by Terry Matlen, LMSW, ACSW from ADDconsults

Scott Stossel pulls you into his world of living with severe anxiety, panic attacks, phobias and more, while offering up the history and detailing research findings of this potentially disabling psychiatric condition.

Natir Whitebridge – A Grain of Respect by Ameel Koro

Book recommendation by Ameel Koro

‘In the cave you fear to enter, lies the treasure you seek’ – Joseph Campbell.

In this book, Natir begins her adventure as a terribly abused young woman weight down by chains of slavery and a primal culture oppressive to women, where women’s recognition as persons is a rarity and to be treated with the respect of an equal is unheard of.

Her fear of direful punishment and cheap forfeit of her life, and her daughter’s life, is the fabric of Natir’s nightmares, and it’s holding her back from becoming the entity she was destined to be, forcing her instead to close in on herself to the limits of self-worth denial and accept playing the only role she is expected to fulfill: a humanoid-cattle.

It was only her chance encounter with a special man, Alfred, who saw in Natir more than what she seems to be is what was going to change all that. His relentless attempts to unleash the beast resident within her sends Natir through a journey packed with danger and horrible events, until she breaks through her chains of fear and hesitation and face her ultimate terror by standing her ground in the face of a free-man, a hero among his clan;

In a remarkable show of defiance, Natir finally achieves her recognition as a person, as a woman, and as an equal. And the terrible price she had to pay for it.
