  • I have GAD, and other anxiety disorders.
    What I do usually, is play games like Minecraft, or Stardew Valley…Making symmetrical things in Minecraft calms me.
    The routine in Stardew Valley calms me..
    Right now, I have a cross stitch app on my phone. That helps as well, as it is pretty much a colour by number kind of thing, and colouring helps me, by distracting me..
    At the moment, I’m doing the cross stitch one, while listening to things, as my room is too hot (my 360 heats my room up more), my laptop needs to be fixed (gotta wait until Christmas for that), and I can’t sleep (anxiety, insomnia, sick, and hurting. Not a fun mix.)

  • I recently learned that there exist also a fourth “F” called the Fawn respons, whereby a person gives up and totally surrenders to the person frightning them they become submissive.
    I had that, after months of stalking I simply gave in to get rid of the tension that became too high each time he came to my door.
    I was lucky he was a hunter, and once he got what he wanted he lost interest. The hunt was more important to him than the prey.

  • My body goes into flight mode and I start crying, my throat gets tight and I feel like I’m trapped in my own mine, can not speak to any one and if some one dose talk to me I cry. I only get it when I’m playing sports or are doing school work so I’m glad this video shows that anxiety for some people doesn’t come randomly for me it happens pretty much only in school so I have putty and stress balls

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) is a type of psychotherapeutic treatment that helps people learn how to identify and change destructive or disturbing thought patterns that have a negative influence on behavior and emotions. Cognitive-behavioral therapy focuses on changing the automatic negative thoughts that can contribute to and worsen emotional difficulties, depression, and anxiety. These spontaneous negative thoughts have a detrimental influence on mood. This is the most trustworthy online therapy: https://www.online-therapy.com/?ref=178979

  • This one time I told someone that I’m always overthinking and stressing and worrying about things that happened over a year ago and yet I still think about them for days on end. He told me that everybody stresses about things and it made me feel horrible because it’s not normal to worry about going out the house or talking to anyone about even buying a drink at a shop. It’s so hard to explain social anxiety when you even find it hard to talk about the weather. I have stopped trying to talk about and now deal with it in other ways and I’m in this never ending cycle of wanting to talk but not being able to

  • I had a super stressful day. My son is getting married tomorrow so I had a lot of last minute preparations and shopping to do. One of the Most important things I needed to get was not available and since it was late, everything was closed. Then I got home late and was worried about not getting enough sleep. I tried to sleep and I could not fall asleep for anything! At first, I was calm, just couldn’t sleep. After a couple hours, I started to feel other symptoms of anxiety and it just got worse and worse. I finally became sleepy but once I try to sleep, my brain starts thinking really irrational things. This is really unusual for me. I usually sleep very well and rarely have panic attacks. I also have another stressful situation coming up in the near future, plus covid is making things stressful as well. I think it all caught up to me at once. But why, on a super important day?! When it’s so important for me to be present!

  • What I don’t get is that if the sympathetic system inhibits defecation and micturition, then why does being stressed cause you to relieve yourself?

  • What if your own body is causing said trauma? I have a chronic disease and whenever I focus on my body, I am basically reminded of it

  • I posted about a month ago about my symptoms and ultrasound results. Since then, I’ve had a FNA and the result is “highly suspicious for papillary thyroid cancer. I am having a total thyroidectomy on February 24th. Pending final pathology report, my doctor says that I probably will have radioactive iodine treatment as a surgery follow up. I cannot wait for this journey to be finished.

  • Correction: Thyroglobulin is present in the colloid(inside the lumen surrounded by follicular cells ), iodine binds to the tyrosine molecules present on the thyroglobulins.. which then gets sequestered into follicular cells and then T3 and T4 are released into circulation

  • All the time, i feel like i’m gonna vomit when anxiety attacks. And vomiting is nightmare to me. I can’t even talk or walk after i vomit so i try to keep inside me but i struggle so much.
    I think i need to see a doctor.

  • ask ko lang normal po ung tsh nia pero ung t4 mataas ng.4 tas natural lang ba na mabagal ang pag develop nia mag 11 moz na sia ngaung june 22 pero hindi parin sia gumagamapang nakakadapa???pero may ngipin na po sia halos naglalabasan na lahat

  • Why fight or flight is a FEAR response, not a STRESS response

    It is a fact that our voluntarily and involuntary muscles are driven by our emotions, particularly when we are afraid or fearful. This ‘flight or fight’ response, or as it is known today as ‘flight fight freezing system’, or FFFS makes your heart race, your internal organs shut down, and primes your muscles to act to defend yourself, or else run for the hills. On the other hand, the simple tensions that occur when we find it hard to make up our minds activate the postural musculature alone, a simple response that shares little in common with the complex neurological and muscular reactions which comprise fear. In other words, see a spider far away and our postural muscles will move because we think, but see a spider on your nose, and all your muscles and a whole lot more will move because we fear. Do these separate instances correspond to the same neurological causes? Of course not. In both cases, you are avoiding the spider, and yet in each case your physiological responses are distinctively different not only in degree but also in kind.

    Moreover, in the former case your behavior is driven because you think, and in the latter, it is because you are in fear. The former is due to cortical processes, and the latter is due to more primitive neural processes, centered in the midbrain, that govern the emotion of fear. This is a very simple distinction, verified conceptually as well as empirically (see appendix of linked book for academic sources), but it has not been explained well or has even been entertained in the copious academic and popular estimate of stress. So, our daily stresses and anxieties are distinctive from our fears. They are indeed separate emotions.

    It is a remarkable fact that we’ve got stress figured out all wrong. Our hard-wired fear responses are responses to threat, not choice, and are governed by different neurological processes from those cortically based processes that underscore anxiety or tension. Secondly, neuromuscular tension due to choice conflict only activates the postural musculature, and the global changes in physiological activity, from a racing heart, hormonal changes, to enhanced alertness, vasodilation, hyperventilation, etc. simply are not characteristic of tension elicited by conflicted thought. Both muscular tension and relaxation are ultimately functions of the relationship rather than content of our choices.

  • I start college tomorrow I’m freaking out right now, I can’t sleep all I can think about is where do I park, where is my class and will I know anyone in the class

  • having anxiety is like being in the middle of a horror movie, any second you expect some horrifying thing to happen/appear or feel like something is after you but you never see it and it just builds up the tension.

  • I had been having symptoms and went for a check up. only to discover that I had thyroid, having constipation and adding too much of weight, I was always lazy and my body was so pale and dry And this gradually affected my hormones and fertility as a woman…the doctor said I had to do an operation because it also resulted to my problem of being infertile…tried to conceive for 3 years but to no avail…I was scared and refused the surgery..not until a friend of my husband gave me a contact of a traditional herbalist who deals on native medication. So I talked to him and he said that it was a small issue and there are some medication he will get for me and after some days he sent me the medication..then I remembered taking the medication for about 3 weeks and I felt completely ok..so I decided to do a check up again and to my greatest suprise my thyroid test came out negative…why I am Happy is that am now 7 months pregnant..so is best if your having any signs of thyroid you should try reaching out to him so probably he can help ok..here is his contact +2348129605087.. I actually reached him on Whatsapp…

  • my anxiety is so bad I’m just really on edge and close to snapping or having a break down at this point. I wish I could take a break from everything but I can’t because school:/

  • IBS flare pain for me causes extreme anxiety and panic,can you give some advice of how to deal with real physical pain making us anxious and scared (in my case of IBS: going out,eating,even going to the bathroom scares me to death )

  • Been suffering from this hell since grade school. It’s just sad that it’s making me lose my interest in school. It’s making me hate everything about school. I get anxious everytime. I hate presentations, reporting and all. Just being in my seat doing nothing is already hard for me. I hate how I can’t control my emotions and reactions. I hate waking up with a heavy and anxious heart. Even talking to my family and friends is hard. I’m in my tenth grade and planning to quit school and just fix myself. My problem is just that i know my parents wouldnt agree about it. Dancing calms me down sometimes so ill hold on my hobby. I love performing ever since but anxiety just keep on messing with me. I just hope He’ll shower us blessings so it wouldn’t be too hard for me. Am I still doing the right thing? Can someone please talk to me about this?

  • Very helpful, thank you so much, Doctora! By your leave, Señora Caballera!

    ❤️, Maybe a Peer Counselor LCSW to get cracking faster before M.D. and so forth, Aye!

  • (I dunno what kind of anxiety this is)
    Everytime I chat w/ my friend I will plan the day before what will I say to her and how I want to the converstation end, because I hate awkward silences it usually makes my heart beat fast and make my palms sweaty. Meanwhile my brain is screaming “TALK ABOUT SOMETHING OH MY GOD THIS IS AWKWAAAARD!!!”

  • I’ve been feeling like I have a fever for two months but every time the thermometer doesn’t show me anything. I thought it was internal fever due to my anxiety but I also lost so much wait without trying any diet. I’m literally concerned and I’m gonna get tested… oof I got it out of my chest hope everyone’s ok btw

  • When I was in therapy, and telling certain stories, I would get really emotionally distressed. I asked a couple therapists if they would interrupt me, stop me and guide me back into my body/the present. I even said, “I need you to stop me when I’m getting emotionally heightened. And then basically guide me to take deep breaths to relax.”

    Neither of them would do it. One said he would, but didn’t. The other therapist told other therapists what I’d asked her and one of those therapists basically reprimanded and shamed me for it, in front of a group of other clients plus my own therapist. He said, “It’s not your therapists responsibility to stop you from ranting.”

  • I had been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism yesterday, it happens when I’m at work and feel like heartburn, blurry mind, I can easily feel my heartbeat,… I go to government clinic and they said I have high blood pressure, I feel impossible because I take care of my food, workout. I decided go to private clinic, doing heart test, blood test and I’m diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. I had tremor, high heartbeat, but doc say my heart is OK but it fast because of this shit hyperthyroidism…

  • Mam
    Fight or flight response any treatment please…… My body numbness and tingling. And bowel syndrome hard. Urinary problem. And headache. All time I’m anxious and anxiety..

  • This video is complete bullshit. She is just promoting her ” grounding activities” but she never actually tells us what are the activities. Sounds like we may have to sign up and pay money to learn the secret. My advice: it’s all about the breathing, deep breaths exhale slowly. Or try the Wim Hoff method, he has a YT tutorial without the preamble bulls**t.

  • Currently the 100mg of zoloft for my severe anxiety. It only came about maybe 2 years ago this severely. Panic attacks for no reason, today (which is qhy im here now) I’ve literally felt like I’m in fight or flight mode all day. Causing irritable bowl (tmi?), nausea, rises and falls in my blood sugar, and constant panic basically. I hate that the medication I take doesn’t help. It doesn’t mute the feelings. So I’m now looking into more holistic/natural ways of coping.

    If anyone has any other advice. Please let me know. I need the help ��

  • I always loved Osmosis but this video doens’t go in depth as the other ones. I like having things fully explained and not just what they are so I hope Osmosis tries to retain the same level of depth as most of the other videos.

  • Please can you advise me what is going on in my brain. Most days I fear death and wondering what is the point of living and when we all have to die. I go crazy in my mind and start suffering bad aches in the front of my brian and in my neck too. I panic alot, and become very negative and sucidal

  • So about two months ago I started getting a high heart rate and pressures and palpitations in my heart, I went to the ER and everything was fine with my heart there and then later went to the cardiologists, wore a heart monitor for a month and nothing was wrong with my heart itself, they said it could do something with my thyroid, is this probable? (Update) my thyroid levels are high, now I have to wait a whole month to see an endocrinologist because of corona and ive also lost a lot of weight for a skinny kid (down 10 pounds)

  • There are several components to remedies for panic attacks. One plan I found which succeeds in merging these is the Trevs panic fixer (check it out on google) definately the best blueprint that I have ever heard of. look at all the incredible information.

  • Hello Emma, I hope you have an answer to my following question, as I have looked everywhere without clear explanation to this.
    Whenever I talk to people I don’t know well, whenever I get confronted, when I have a job interview or talk to a person of authority, my eyes start tearing up (like when you yawn) and it has made my life really difficult. I want to move away from my toxic household but with this issue I can’t. I had agoraphobia e few months back but I consulted a psychologist and helped me overcome it in about half a year. I have social anxiety too, and this may be the reason this thing happens. I really want this stupid reaction of my eyes go away.
    I appreciate any advice. I am 22 years old by the way and this situation prevents me from even having a relationship with a girl.

  • I was diagnosed with a 6 cm toxic nodule on my thyroid this past December & got it removed May 1st. I talk all about my story, symptoms, the surgery, & my surgical team that I’d recommend to ANYONE in my “meeting my thyroid tumor” video on my channel! I also have my social media linked in case anyone with similar issues wanted to talk:)

  • its impossible to deal with right now, i spend time with friends that i thinl hate me and feel isolated, but if i avoid that situation to try to find a way to fix it i feel lonely. i have lost a part of myself and its now dead, but i cant rebuild myself in order to move on.

  • Thanks to everyone for watching and let us know if this video helped. Also, special thanks to: Sara Golding

  • I am not sure if I have anxiety…. I have to question whether I ware mascara on somedays because I never know when I will need to cry.
    Math is really stressful for me and when I see I don’t understand it feels like I’m trapped…..
    I don’t really have friends and when I don’t have anyone to talk to my feelings well up and I instantly take “flight “ and usually need to get outside and be alone… the weird thing is I’m not really an introvert… ����
    I’m kinda afraid to tell my mom tho….:(

  • I really don’t enjoy life when I feel like this I’m psychically sick every morning does anyone have this I constantly have butterflies in my stomach does anyone have the same thing (I’m 19 years old)

  • For myself it sometimes helps to find a place where i can be myself and can feel a little calmer and hmmm protectet but also free… Does this make sence?
    For me actually its a half a hour walk lake where i can sit with my dog for a while till i’m ready to go back

  • i wish a doctor told me before i fell on the floor and crashed with intense burnout that my immunesystem most if the times was turned off because of extreme long term stress for years. This warning could have taking myself and my health more seriously. Now my recoveryprocess of extreme burnout takes already two years! Thank you for your help and tips

  • i always have butterflies in my stomach over small things and i randomly get nervous and just paranoid very easily. sometimes my legs shake and my hands are always really sweaty, this has happened for a while but idk if it’s anxiety.

  • In class or anywhere I move my leg constantly up and down because I feel nervous or anxious. Sometimes I can’t control it, sometimes I can.

  • I’m laughing so hard I want to cry bc I was experiencing every symptom he talked about throughout the entirety of this video lmaoo

  • It’s 11.40 pm right now and i haven’t got out of my bed since morning, i couldn’t concentrate on my online classes and fell asleep, my mom was yelling at me for skipping my class and sleeping all day, i feel like I’m stuck, I’m just piling everything up on my head, i feel horrible, and negative, i really need help

  • The explanation given for what happens when someone hyperventilates it’s wrong. The problem isn’t with oxygen but with carbon dioxide. When the respiratory frequency increases without a physiological need, through breathing more frequently, more carbon dioxide is being eliminated than produced. Carbon dioxide is one of the substances that affects the pH of our blood. It results in respiratory alkalosis.

  • I have spent months investigating reducing panic attacks at home and discovered a great resource at Trevs Panic Fixer (look it up on google)

  • When I got Herpes, it was from someone who pretended to be my friend for three years. He knew he had it and he really didn’t give a crap about if I got it or not. He flat out lied to me and told me he had had a clean std test. When I turned up with it a week later, he told me to go to the doctor and ask them for Valtrex and herpes treatment (acyclovir drugs, Penciclovir cream, Oregano oil, Cbd oil). “You will be fine.” He told me. Needless to say, I didn’t have a lot of faith in humanity or men after that happened to me. When I found this Email: [email protected] gmail.com on a private forum I was skeptical and leery at first to believe Doctor Aloha not until he prepared his Herbal Remedy and delivered it to me through Fed-Ex delivery service. I received the Herbal medication within just three days and began the use of the Remedy as instructed and the sores started vanishing. could you believe I was cured of this deadly virus within just 10 days of using this Herbal Medication, I am overjoyed that I am free from this disease and its stigma! at last, I can now afford to be happy and leave a normal life again. Thank you so much Doctor Aloha you can contact him through his Email: [email protected] gmail.com or Call/Text him via his Contact +1 (417) 329-8103

  • “Thyropedia: An Encyclopedia of Thyroidology” is an unavoidable book. It provides each and every information on any thyroid problem.
    Google “thyropedia”

  • Thanks for the info.
    This fight, flight, freeze thing is irritating. When my wife left without leaving a note or anything my body went into a long period of this fff. One day I drove off to the woods to pick up a friend, I’d never been there so was looking for the correct road when this asshole drives up and starts screaming at me and threatening to shoot me. He wasn’t reasonable so I drove off and he followed. Every move I made he’d follow me, he had a partner by the way. Anyway after a while my adrenaline was way over the top so I decided to return home. When I got home my x called and sent me into another dose of adrenaline. All day long is way to much, but I’d go fff almost every day for well over 6 months. Finally convinced the doc to give me some sleep aid. Two years out I’m not that bad but it hasn’t gone away yet.

  • For anyone struggling with depression/anxiety, or just someone who wants a way to calm themselves down I would really recommend looking up “wim hof guided breathing method” on YouTube (it has 10mil views so u know it’s real). It has helped me a lot with my anxiety. I would also recommend trying meditating, there are also great videos for that on YouTube. Remember that no matter how bad things are, they will get better.

  • Just to note that grounding will not remove ptsd triggers because they are reactionary. I don’t know, maybe you can remind yourself to be mindful before being triggered to avoid it happening, but mindfulness and hyper vigilance are probably very close when you practice being mindful too much. Point is you should probably avoid putting things which trigger some peoples ptsd in your video about mental health. Not relevant to me, but it is for some people. Otherwise obviously it’s good advice and a good reminder even if you already know how to practice grounding techniques.

  • I really really reallyyyy lol love ur videos! Just by hearing ur voice I feel a sense of healing taking place esp during these times with so many drastic changes this is so needed for me and everyone going through it! Thank youuu!

  • i have been suffering from general anxiety for over 30 years. power of prayer…. i came across your channel. i started studying your information yesterday and putting the info into practice. i am already feeling alot better. thank you
