What can a Simon & Garfunkel song teach us about our relationship with Anxiety? Instead of doing battle with our Anxiety, could it help to see her as a friend and ally? In this episode, writer and podcaster Yang-May Ooi shares her own personal experience of how Anxiety has shown up in her life – and how it has limited what she enjoys doing and also potentially ruined her professional career as a lawyer. And how she hopes we can find a better way forward.

I am not an expert on anxiety. I have no medical or therapy-type qualifications. I am a writer – and like many people, I have struggled with anxiety. My purpose in these podcasts is to explore with curiosity how these very human feelings affect all our lives. Views expressed by my guests are entirely their own and do not represent my views. These podcasts come out of my personal experience and perspective – and I do not claim to speak for everyone who may be living with anxiety. The content of these podcasts is for informational purposes only. If you are affected by anything in these podcasts, please seek the advice of your doctor or other qualified professional.
