9780062369680: Hi, Anxiety: Life With a Bad Case of Nerves

Joining the ranks of such acclaimed accounts as Manic, Brain on Fire, and Monkey Mind, a deeply personal, funny, and sometimes painful look at anxiety and its impact from writer and commentator Kat Kinsman.

Feeling anxious? Can’t sleep because your brain won’t stop recycling thoughts? Unable to make a decision because you're too afraid you’ll make the wrong one? You’re not alone.

In Hi, Anxiety, beloved food writer, editor, and commentator Kat Kinsman expands on the high profile pieces she wrote for CNN.com about depression, and its wicked cousin, anxiety. Taking us back to her adolescence, when she was diagnosed with depression at fourteen, Kat speaks eloquently with pathos and humor about her skin picking, hand flapping, “nervousness” that made her the recipient of many a harsh taunt. With her mother also gripped by depression and health issues throughout her life, Kat came to live in a constant state of unease—that she would fail, that she would never find love . . . that she would end up just like her mother.

Now, as a successful media personality, Kat still battles anxiety every day. That anxiety manifests in strange, and deeply personal ways. But as she found when she started to write about her struggles, Kat is not alone in feeling like the simple act of leaving the house, or getting a haircut can be crippling. And though periodic medication, counseling, a successful career and a happy marriage have brought her relief, the illness, because that is what anxiety is, remains.

Exploring how millions are affected anxiety, Hi, Anxiety is a clarion call for everyone—but especially women—struggling with this condition. Though she is a strong advocate for seeking medical intervention, Kinsman implores those suffering to come out of the shadows—to talk about their battle openly and honestly. With humor, bravery, and writing that brings bestsellers like Laurie Notaro and Jenny Lawson to mind, Hi, Anxiety tackles a difficult subject with amazing grace.

From the Back Cover:

Take my hand.

I hope you don’t mind if it’s shaking a little.

We’ll get through this together.

Kat Kinsman has been nervous for as long as she can remember. Well, not just nervous, but cripplingly worried, anxious, and often depressed—teetering on the terrifying edge of becoming a messy horror show of a person.  Most days she can mask her condition pretty well. But not every day. Diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) at the tender age of fourteen, Kinsman lives with a secret that manifests itself in sleepless nights, skin picked raw, a somersaulting stomach, or sometimes absence—from social life, from life at all.

In January 2014, Kinsman wrote a blog post on CNN.com that bared her secret to the world. In that post, she described her anxiety in great detail—the feral cat to depression’s black dog. Her words went out like a siren’s call to the thousands who read them: “Anxiety hurts. It’s the precise inverse of joy and blots out pleasure at its whim, leaving a dull, faded outline of the happiness that was supposed to happen. It’s also as sneaky as hell.” The response was overwhelming: “This is how I feel every day”; “You put into words what I’ve never been able to describe”; “Thank you for not hiding anymore. I’ll stop hiding too.” It’s no wonder, because GAD is the most commonly diagnosed mental illness today, affecting millions of people—primarily women—every year.

In a journey through the burrows of her life, Kinsman uncovers an intimate landscape of lost love, lost jobs, lost identity, and the struggle to sustain herself when the voice in her head, the beast shrieking for attention, keeps self-confidence and calm at bay.

Hi, Anxiety is a thoughtful, wry, heartbreaking, brave, but ultimately happy story of what life looks like through the lens of anxiety, and will reassure anyone ever held in the clutches of GAD that they are never alone—and the best way to fight back against the beast is to say its name loud and clear.
