Dr Claire Weekes is renowned internationally for her books on nervous illness. This, her fourth book, does what its title claims - gives more help to people suffering from "nerves".
From her wide experience of treating nervously ill patients, Dr Weekes believes that stress can produce symptoms and experiences that in time become more important to the sufferer than the original cause of illness. Sufferers can become so concerned with and afraid of the "state they are in" that they are trapped in a cycle of nervous suffering.
In this book, Dr Weekes reveals the common, almost inevitable pattern of development of nervous symptoms and experiences. In particular, she analyses and explains nervous fatigue, and shows how understanding this fatigue and then following the principles she describes can help reverse the pattern and so bring recovery.
