Andrea Petersen’s Journey through Anxiety

September 29, 2017

If you know someone who lives with anxiety, you won’t want to miss this podcast with Rosalynn Carter Mental Health Journalism Fellow Andrea Petersen. Petersen describes how she transformed "from a slightly silly sorority girl to a terrorized shut-in in just a few weeks’ time."

Her medical odyssey and numerous ER visits finally led to an anxiety disorder diagnosis and a life of recovery. Petersen is a Wall Street Journal contributor and writes about her experience in a lively, well-researched, and sometimes humorous memoir “On Edge: A Journey Through Anxiety", available at Amazon and other booksellers.
