Paul Anthony

I've worked with anxiety for a number of years. I actually started working with groups back in 2001 in various capacities.

I'm not a therapist but I've been involved in a number of therapy groups. I learned a lot, not just from the people that were facilitating or leading the group, but from all the people that were in the group.

One of the things that I got initially with my experience with groups was the fact that I wasn't alone in the way I was thinking. Like a lot of people, I thought I was the only one who's anxious in certain situations and I'm embarrassed by that and I was embarrassed by that. I didn't want to tell anybody about it. That secrecy and isolation just made things worse for me.

When I got into group, I was able to hear other people tell similar stories to mine. I remember some of the "aha" moments and thinking, "Wow, that's what happened to me."

It's comforting in a way to know that other people have had the same feelings and now we're sharing. It made it easier for me to share what happened. It enabled me to share my feelings really almost for the first time in my life with other people that weren't my family.

I'll tell you right now that I'm not a champion with sharing feelings with my family or anybody else. But when I was in that situation with a group, I was able to say, "Wow, these people understand me more than anybody else in my life and they relate to me and I can relate to them."

We made progress through exploring our past, our way thinking, and what we're feeling. I spent time reprogramming the way I dealt with anxiety.

I took that experience because I thought, "Wow not only did it help me, it helped other people. By helping other people, by teaching what I learned, I'm also keeping that recovery alive in me. It keeps me from suffering from anxiety.

On this website, podcasts, and programs, books and webinars, I'm sharing what I learned over the years with you. It's not enough to get rid of anxiety - that's just the beginning. I want to help you get more out of life where dreams become a reality and you're living life on your own terms.

I'm the mom. I've got a 17-year-old son and he is special needs. He's got autism.

I work as an editor at a small-town newspaper

I am most particularly interested in anxiety as it relates to post-partum depression, motherhood, stretching one's self too thin and still trying to get things done.

I also enjoy reading about the effects the media has on a society's anxiety and how modern media affects basically our comfort level.

I had my first panic attack back in 1995. I was washing the dishes and I was listening to the news. They were talking about Susan Smith - the woman who drowned her two children. She rolled the car into the lake and the kids were inside and they died. I was listening and I had my first panic attack. I will never, ever forget that day.

Now, every time I go towards the sink I start to have a panic attack because I think, "this is the place where I had my first panic attack." However, I've learned over time - and I can't believe it's been 20 years since that happened - how not to have one.

It's been a wild ride. Although I'd always prefer that someone else do the dishes, I know how to deal with that when the time comes.

I'd like to help other people reach that point as well - spotting your triggers and overcoming them when you're faced with them.

Is A Cure For Anxiety for you?

Maybe your anxiety isn't that bad. Maybe you just want a few tips to manage anxiety or reduce its effects. Not everyone wants to do what it takes to cure anxiety. That's Ok.

If not, do you want to keep doing what you are doing? . . . Or are you willing to make a change?

It's your choice, you see. Are you ready to make a change?

Really think about this…

What will happen if you don't get rid of your anxiety right now? Are you ready to keep searching the internet for some other solution? For another year, or two, or five - how long do you want to continue to suffer? Don't you just want to end the pain now? You deserve a pain free life today.

Don't finish reading this message wondering what your life could have been like if you had taken action…

Don't miss this opportunity to have to an anxiety-free life.

No one is coming

This short thought comes from Nathaniel Branden's book The Six Pillars of Self-Esteem and it simply goes like this: "No one is coming".

Short. But it has been a powerful and sobering reminder for me.

Because yes, you can look for the next big thing that will fix you.

Read more blog articles. Read more personal development books. Look for people to help you.

And yes, some articles, books, products or people will give you support and insights that resonate deeply with you and that you can put into practice.

But in the end, if you are an adult then no one is coming. No one is coming to save you. You have to take responsibility for your own life and what happens in it.

Other things and people can certainly aid you quite a bit. But you are responsible.

You can go around blaming society or some people for your problems in your social life. Or finances. Or health. You can always find scapegoats to judge to feel better about yourself. You can look for people that will "fix you". You can do this for the rest of your life if you like. It won't change much. Whatever has to be done, it's you who have to take responsibility and do it.

Yeah, things might always not go your way. You'll fall and stumble and you will probably have bad luck from time to time.

But you still have to focus on yourself and on doing what you can do with what you have in whatever situation that may arise in your world.

The first "M" is Mindset. Through our programs, we'll teach you a new way to look at your life and the part anxiety has played in it. This is the "what" of our anxiety cure.

Next is Motivation. By working with us, you'll develop you own positive reasons for moving past anxiety. This is your "why" of curing anxiety.

Finally, Mobilization. You'll create a personalized action plan to live life on your own terms without the painful effects of anxiety. This is the "how" to cure your own anxiety.


Because A Cure for Anxiety is first and foremost intent on helping people cure their anxiety, we dedicated our website to providing free tips to manage the negative emotions of anxiety.

A Cure for Anxiety emphasizes how essential it is for individuals to acknowledge to themselves that they are indeed suffering from anxiety. Only by recognizing and acknowledging negative feelings can anxiety be cured.

Knowing what caused you to feel stressed and anxious will also help you solve your problems better.

It's also important to give yourself positive reinforcement even for the smallest accomplishments. This will encourage you to continue on your attempts to manage your problems without resorting to unnecessary and dangerous medications or, worse yet, falling into hopelessness or depression.
