The Linden Method – I’ve used it and it does work! I haven’t had a panic attack since I fininshed with it. Once I’ve finished my benzo withdrawal I’m positive that the linden method will get rid of my anxiety… And if anyone is guessing…. no, I don’t work for these guys, I’m not a salesman and I get nothing in return for anyone buying it!
People with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) have persistent, upsetting thoughts (obsessions) and use rituals (compulsions) to control the anxiety these thoughts produce. Most of the time, the rituals end up controlling them.
For example, if people are obsessed with germs or dirt, they may develop a compulsion to wash their hands over and over again. If they develop an obsession with intruders, they may lock and relock their doors many times before going to bed. Being afraid of social embarrassment may prompt people with OCD to comb their hair compulsively in front of a mirror-sometimes they get “caught” in the mirror and can’t move away from it. Performing such rituals is not pleasurable. At best, it produces temporary relief from the anxiety created by obsessive thoughts.
