About Greg Weber, Author of Treating Anxiety Blog
Treating Anxiety is Not Something We Can Do Alone
First of all, let me say how exciting it is to be blogging at HealthyPlace. I’m honored, and will I do my very best to live up to the privilege of being asked to join this amazing community.
Speaking of community, sharing what it’s like to have generalized anxiety disorder with others who “get it” has been essential in the treatment of my own anxiety. There simply is no substitute for sharing our experiences with others like us in an environment that’s free of shame, judgment, and stigma. The healing power of being understood and accepted is truly incredible, and I intend to make it the foundation of the Treating Anxiety blog.
Treating Anxiety to Live Life the Way You Want
- How to choose a therapist who’s right for you
- Relaxation / stress reduction techniques you can use in a pinch
- The pros and cons of medication
- Long term solutions for a less stressful lifestyle (diet, exercise, meditation, and sleep)
- Online communities and other places to find support
I’ve lived with anxiety for a long time, since 1998 to be exact. And in those 16 years, I’ve discovered that, though there is as of yet no “cure” for anxiety, we understand it a lot better than we did even 20 years ago. There’s a wealth of useful information about treating anxiety out there, and I want to share as much of it with you as I possibly can. I’ve decided that I don’t have to let my anxiety control or define me anymore. I’d like to help you decide that too.

Hi I’m so happy I came across your blog I’ve been feeling stupid like people tell me one thing and it goes out the other ear. I’ve been having trouble holding a job due to my anxiety being around people I think they’re always judging me. I feel they see my every move. Makes me feel like throwing up. I can’t even think properly so thank you for your post
Hello Greg! I too suffer from GAD and abuse as a child and growing up. I hope this is a safe and friendly place to discuss coping mechanisms and experiences
I know I have anxiety. Say, I see a pet infront of me. I don't know what to do. It looks at me, I think it might do something to me. I don't know how to meditate at this point. I read you can meditate for anxiety. How will it help me in this scenario?
Thank you for commenting, Sam. Have you tried these grounding techniques? One or two may help. https://www.healthyplace.com/blogs/treatinganxiety/2010/09/top-21-anxiety-grounding-techn…
