  • 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.

  • My mind always worrying about a very tiny things.. actually overthinking.. depressed about those things.. my major problem is.. doing explanations… when i do explanations.. i can’t leave a bit… i do cmplt expln about a thing or situation to my dear people… i always write lengthy messages.. to make them comfort.. i feel if they leave me.. i know nobody is perfect.. but i always try to prove myself i am ok… don’t misunderstand me.. this might occures due to my past experiencess.. i heard alot of blames from, others for the mistakes i didn’t.. they are my college friends who are obsessed with others gossips.. i have some opinions about certain things.. i am from India.. people are watching others like cctv.. my opinions like.. be social, with others which is not acceptable to those idiots..they are so orthodox.. i was born in a village.. i didn’t know, pseudo minds of others.. i think they are very perfect people and their blames are true.. but actually i didn’t do anything wrong.. only i do was be lovable, human to pppl around you.. they were actually freebirds than me.. but they teased me lot.. hurted me.. now i can’t stay with apeaceful mind.. always i feel whole world watching me.. i should do everything perfect.. i have Obsessive compulsive disorder too.. if some body blame me.. i cant handle now.. i am unmarried till at the age of thirty… due to financial problems and my studies… but in our society ppl cant leave peacefully without marriage!. some dirty minded ppl made gossips.. some bad relatives..out of jealous.. oh my god.. i didnt know anything about that.. my mind become more frustrated about that.. telling truth i don’t even have a love relationship.. but i heard worst gossips..that made by them for their own wish….if am telling this i feel guilty… shamed… upon God i didn’t do anything wrong… trust me.. please help me.. i want a bright future for my family.. i want to study… i want to stop explns.. i want to stop making mountain on a mole.. what should i do.. help me madam.. ❤️

  • 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

  • I have gad and sad and some depression so I’m just living my life with two voices screaming at me both “life sucks, don’t even try” and “WE HAVE THREE TESTS TODAY WHATSHEJIWHDJEIJAREYOUDOING”

  • I thought it would be more a guide to live with, or overcome anxiety, Over just explaining symptoms of it…
    I live though this. All of it ring true. Sometimes between the vomiting, headaches, sweating, exhaustion, and panic attacks, It often fells no different then acualy being sick.

  • I learn english for 8 hours per day.I train hard 3 times a week,I can fight and I have a sharp tongue.Yet I can’t talk to someone first and still working on it��

  • 2. fatigue, its like your making your mucles tense forever
    my mom “your being lazy”
    me: no i’m just tired
    my mom: from doing what
    me:…?

  • This is glorious, I’ve been looking for “are panic attacks dangerous” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Wanatthew Janlizabeth Eradicator (do a search on google )? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my m8 got excellent success with it.

  • I just emailed a mental health centre that I fear I have anxiety
    I’m scared but proud and hope to get advice that’ll help me

    The only reason I did that was purely this video
    Thank you

  • anxiety loves to take over me all the time
    sometimes i cant even ask the teacher to go to the restroom my friend has to ask the teacher for me
    yes,that has happened multiple times

  • (I found it very helpful I suffer from chronic anxiety to the point I do not like leaving my own home and also I started suffering bad attendance at my school because I couldn’t deal with people looking at me or the crowds also the one point I can give you that everybody that has anxieties extremely different for everybody that has their own ticks and triggers so for that person is built differently and deals with things very differently so sometimes people may push their own coping techniques on other people to see if that works out for them yes we can try it but there’s a possibility it will not work you could definitely make the situation ten times worse.) and also you are an amazing YouTuber and I love watching your videos

  • damn,
    my best friend suffers from very serious general anxiety disorder. I thought I had a solid grasp on the way her mind reacts to things and how to make things the least stressful for her but after watching this, Ive realised that so much of her personality and so many of her actions are symptoms of her disorder. I feel like a shitty friend because I didn’t get it anywhere near as well as I should have before now but I guess that means I can at least be more understanding and I can try to not stress her out like I had before

  • I have anxiety, depression, OCD and a serious learning disability. I was in special ed in school. I’m not like everyone else. I tried college 3 times and it didn’t work out for me. I am who I am and I can’t change that. I learn to cope with it in my own way.

  • I got way too skinny bcox of thyroid.. n m depressed about it,. People are calling me scary girl. Etc etc it’s hard to live a normal life now

  • When there’s excess stress, sometimes my hands and legs shake so hard people ask if I’m okay, or reach over to physically stop me.
    Apparently I’m a little more obvious than I think.

  • Can anyone explain what this is?

    I was at school watching a volleyball game when all the crowd started cheering. It was a lot of people and it was really loud, and I immediately felt scared and started breathing harder.

    If one person screams in my ear im ok, or if im with a lot of people like at a store i feel fine as well. Why do I feel this way when these are combined?

  • I don’t know why I refuse to tell people if I think I have things like depression, or that I’m an introvert. I probably don’t think highly of myself, and don’t want to say I have something that I may not.

  • I wanted to say I heard her say “do it badly and then improve” it just made me think about how I first burnt my toast but now I cook it perfectly ����

  • Just wonderful, I’ve been looking for “ways to deal with social anxiety” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried Qanwen Donuke Approach (should be on google have a look )? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my m8 got cool success with it.

  • This is a good video because I really often have this idea that I’m the one to blame for being anxious, yet this shows that it’s a natural reaction from my body that is even supposed to HELP me. I guess I just have to treat anxiety as a barking dog that I need to calm down.

  • This is the best ted-talk I’ve watched:
    1. Do things even if you think it’s going to end badly:)
    2. Forgive yourself for errors you made a moment ago or years ago
    3. Have meaning in the things you do, do it for someone else do have a meaningful life

  • I usually tap things with my fingers, sweat, chew off my fingernails, change the position in which I sit or stand very often, and my legs and hands shake whenever I have anxiety. Also my heads and other muscles slightly twitch

  • So use the word response instead of using the word “disorder” which has also become very offensive to a lot of people. It’s a word that has been seriously abused by a certain system for too long. We all need humane healing. Thank you.

  • I am a MH provider and am so grateful for the videos, I share them with clients to reinforce what we discuss in sessions. There are a number of really great videos across a wide range of relevant topics Thank you!

  • I have a question for those diagnosed with anxiety, do you ever feel relaxed or is consistent 24/7? I’m not really sure if what I’m suffering from is anxiety or not. Sometimes I get anxious all of a sudden, start to sweat and my heart bumps much faster, I feel uneasy and I get chest pain I feel like crying and I get shortness of breath. It can last from 1 hour to 2 days. But after the attack I feel relaxed. Can someone help me to know what I’m going through? PS. I can’t visit a therapist.

  • This week I did some little mistakes at my job ( which I admitted, apologized for and resolved) but I think because of the virus and being afraid of being fired as some firms have money problems I get more anxious because I do not feels safe and everything I do I want it to be perfect. It sucks because I know in my mind I am making a big deal out of some little things but I cannot control it…

  • 20 years ago I had a single panic attack that turned into panic disorder with agoraphobia. 7 years ago I became calm and even started going out on my own. But 8 months ago my panic disorder came back and I cant even go to a store. I want to be calm again but still dont know where this came from or why it happened especially when I love the out doors. I hate this so much

  • I constantly have anxiety strikes when I think about my University projects and all the work I have to do. And god, this has been extremely exhausted for me… Honestly I don’t now how it’s gonna be the rest of the semester. However… I just hope my medication can start to work soon…. I’ll try to stay as positive as I can.

  • I have troubles with this reaction often. I was thinking about dampening this by several things. Please tell me what you think of this idea. 1. Doing something that triggers this everyday many several times. 2. Doing meditation. 3 Wim Hof Method and exposing myself to cold showers/baths. What do you think will happen if I keep doing all 3 for months? Maybe to 2021?

  • I’m having that nasty sleep cycle now. My brain keeps telling me I’m in danger and that I need to stay awake but there’s no danger. I’ve also started teeth grinding and getting random headaches especially at night also my heart feels like it’s in danger during my panic attacks… I hate anxiety

    Edit: just wanted to say I love your channel as I aspire to become a psychologist and this video especially helped me understand my anxiety <3

  • I always pull up this video at difficult times to understand that I am not alone with this.. I’ve pulled it up last winter and a while back and there wasn’t this many comments posted, a lot of uncertainty and worries during these tough times.. we need to shine light on these feelings and not stigmatize it. If anyone wants to talk I’m here just comment I’ll be notified.. don’t hesitate your not alone.

  • I am constantly thinking about my life. About my future. About my fears. Preparing for the worst outcomes. I feel like I am in a cage and I can’t run away from my thougts.

  • This is the channel I have been looking for. A well explained straight to the point exercise on decreasing anxiety. Great job!

    I’m practicing this for myself. As I can almost never behave in a social environment, and miss so many great opportunities.

  • When anxiety strikes in, i just listen to music or watch some funny videos! And take deep breaths or keep myself busy with whatever things! Been struggling since like 12 or 13 years old and i’m 19 now! When i was young, I couldn’t sleep at all becuz of that but my parents never knew. I got my diagnose last year and now I’m under control. We can do it! We can survive❤

  • I basically have been stuck in fight flight and freeze am I cortisol levels have skyrocketed over the years because I’m stuck. Too much of reliving my abuse over and over with therapists has made my body so sick.

  • It’s calming just listening to your soothing voice. I find it helpful to do deep breathing 4sec breath in, 4 sec hold and 8 sec breath out. Walking in nature and paying attention to what you see, hear and smell also helps.

  • This is very helpful. I really like how you explained the fight, flight and freeze responses using situations that we can relate to (public speaking, asking out a crush…etc).

  • I work in a company that is very much narcissistic. To stay calm I had to go to acupuncture, traditional Chinese medicine doctor suggested me tea of Mei gui hua. Very helpful!

  • This is the 1st time that I watch my life animated in front of me, thank you
    I hate leaving the house bc I am always in fight mode outside and it’s not good physically and mentally

  • I was hyperventilating during class and felt like fainting but I was to socially anxious to ask to get out of class and calm myself down anxiety sucks

  • Before I was born, my nana has graves desaise. She went from hyper to hypo. Could you do a video on hypothyroidism? I have hashimoto’s, the opposite of my nana!

  • Totaly oftopic, what is up with that lampshade, is that dust on it or even mold, or is it just a funky patern, not being funny but it looks like its attact with dust or mold.

    Any way, the topic is awesome, grounding is da bomb.
    Gonna have a look what kinda grounding stuff you will present in other vids.

  • I Love you! Hello from Greece. Where have you been all this time that l have done so many mistakes? Now with baby steps, l learn the strategy of the strees, by diving inside me. Thank you. Εfxaristo into my language ��

  • She lost me at ‘you arrive to the party’… Everything that comes after would be me still in my head replayed over and over again within the first night after I learn about this ‘party’…

  • Deep relaxation music immediately releases the anxiety and tension without having to try. Whereas noticing my body when anxious just draws attention to all the “symptoms” of anxiety. These days people could easily have their favourite relaxation music on their person wherever they go by saving it to a mobile device or even pocket music device specifically for this purpose. With some inner ear headphones you could do this practically anywhere at any time. Just step away from a difficult conversation or meeting and go to the hallway, stairwell, garden, bathroom, or an empty meeting room, put your headphones in and ahhh calm.:)

  • Those are your natural responses to protect yourself why would you want to turn them off. Anyone trying to suggest you do different is a demon!

  • I think there’s a 4th reflex response float. By floating I mean going into a dream-like withdrawn state. Sometimes when people face an overwhelming crisis, they withdraw, give up trying and just daydream, or become reclusive. You could say that addictions are a floating response. The person’s attention focuses on the drug or drink they are addicted to and this protects them from the world which seems too complex or difficult to manage. Perhaps some forms of insanity are examples of floating. It’s a way of giving up and not trying to make things work any more. So I believe that there are 4 reflex responses fight, flight, freeze and float.

  • Is it just me or whenever you are being forced to speak especially when you have anxiety, when you smile you cant keep it for a long time or else your muscles in your mouth begin to shake??

  • When anxiety hits, over all social or performance, I feel my heartrate fastening and I feel like my cheeks start to swell blocking my view. It’s awful, expecially during speeches or presentations because I feel like I can’t see the paper I’m reading from.

  • Ive only listen to a couple of your videos but so far YOURE saying things that sit well with me…btw thanks for adding freeze to fight flight…until the third word is added fight flight never felt quite right

  • Hello, how to recover health and life force and light when I was fithing my own système of thinking and trauma because I feel guilt about what I leave.. To be not enough for my body.. Please..

  • I was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism/Graves Disease by my primary physician through my blood test months ago and he transferred me to a thyroid specialist (Endocrinologist). The symptoms are scary, especially of the tremors, anxiety, insomnia, rapid heart beat and losing a tons of weight (45 lbs.) in a short period of time. I had simple symptoms and decided to ignore it since i have been feeling those things throughout my life, but when one of my close friend mentioned something about losing some of my weight, i kind of started to worry but not entirely because it is my body and i thought it was just because i was being active (Outdoors, Hiking, Hula dancing, Gym and i was doing intermittent fasting). Months passed and that’s when some of my symptoms got worse. Tremors and unexplained rapid heartbeat was affecting my everyday life so i decided to consult my primary physician and he asked me to take different kind of test such as electrocardiogram, blood, urine and feces test. Everything was perfect and healthy except for my metabolic profile, hemoglobin, T4 Hormones, Alkaline Phosphatase, Sedimentation Rate, and Glucose is waaay to high and my Thyroid Stimulating Hormones(TSH) is waaaay to low. He was eager and helped me to look for a Endocrinologist as long as possible. Fortunately, i was able to find that specialist despite of 1-2 months wait list on any other Endocrinologist. He asked me to do a thyroid scan to make it sure it is a thyroid problem and it is positive. He enlighten me about the disease and told me everything i need to know. It was mind opening but that was day darkest day i have ever felt in my life and it went darker when my i found out more cons about the disease… I had no idea about thyroid and what it does to our body until the day i was diagnosed with this disease. It is far more important than i thought…. but now i am about to attend my Radioactive Iodine Treatment this coming Wednesday and when i decided to agree to do that, i am fully aware of the changes and that my life will never be the same again. I may be sound so dramatic right now but you’ll never know the feeling until you experience a health problem that will give something that you will be responsible and carry for the rest of your lives. Take a really great care of yourselves guys, life is short. God Bless you.

  • I have all of these symptoms but I don’t think I have anxiety because I don’t get panic attacks too often like I’ve only ever had about 3 and I know people who do have anxiety and they always have panic attacks. Like I suffer from all the symptoms but idk if it’s anxiety or not

  • Winner of a video, I been tryin to find out about “social anxiety coach” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Telaavar Anxious Amanita (should be on google have a look )?

    It is a smashing exclusive guide for removing the root cause of social anxiety without the hard work. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my coo-worker got great success with it.

  • Thank you so much. I love your channel. So helpful. And so many of us are struggling. Most of my life I didn’t even realize i had PTSD or my anxiety and behaviours were related to childhood trauma. Keep posting. You are a light in the darkness. ��

  • I experience a lot of these symptoms… I would go to a professional but my family does not have the money for it and because we moved recently our insurance isn’t accepted in a lot of places.

    It’s good to know that if I really do have Anxiety like I think I do, I am not just imagining it.

  • I’m extremely frozen. I spend hours just sitting and staring forward. Muscles are very stiff upon waking in morning and throughout the day. I alternate between states of panic and freeze. Have tried emdr, tapping, talk therapy…results are meh. How do I get out of these states?

  • I’m sweating abnormally and have heat intolerances because of this disease and i literally was born in one of the hottest countries on earth:((

  • I was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in 2005, and I was a woman of 40. They put me on Rebif which I took until 2008 and was switched to Copaxone. I had two relapses on Rebif, none on Copaxone. I did notice my balance getting worse, and my memory, as well as muscle spasms.I was placed on Copaxone, it helped me but not very much. My neurologist advised me to try natural treatments and introduced me to Rich Herbal Garden Multiple Sclerosis Disease Herbal formula, I read alot of positive reviews from other patients who used the treatment and i immediately started on the treatment. I had great improvement and relief with this treatment, total decline of symptoms. Great improvement with my Vision problems, co-ordination, balance, muscle, mood etc, I gained back my life with this treatment and can never be thankful enough. Visit Rich Herbal Garden official website w ww.Richherbalgardens.c om I’m 52 now, and have never been healthier.

  • Anybody else just spend 15 minutes sitting in your car outside the shop whilst playing out every conversation or encounter in your head and then never go into the shop because it closes as you have sat in the car procrastinating for so long?

  • If you are suffering from coervid er19 the best thing to do is go into your local supermarket without a mask and shout Help me Help me i have got the bug.The supermarket will empty before you could shout Jack Robinson

  • Appreciate Video clip! Excuse me for butting in, I am interested in your initial thoughts. Have you tried Lammywalness Erase Depression Guide (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is an awesome exclusive product for beating depression fast without the headache. Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my close friend Aubrey finally got cool success with it.

  • When you want to have a little energy, you can drink some coffee or some tea.. When you want to relax eat a turkey sandwich.. If you have anxiety, there’s quite a few natural herbal helpers that are available! People may say, “I want to deal with my problem Not cover it up with a Band aid”! But, if you just think about it, There is No medicine that can cure anything!! All medicines today, especially the New ones on TV commercials, are just Band aids! And that’s it! So at least, just as with a band aid.. There’s something there to help You while You heal!!

  • I always feel kind of uncomfortable saying that I HAVE anxiety. I have…the symptoms of social anxiety…I often have panic attacks, occasional selective mutism, I find talking to people in general rather difficult unless I know them well. But there’s always someone whose problems are more serious than mine, and my problems don’t mean anything, and I don’t deserve to say that I have it when I’m not really suffering, so…I usually just say that I GET social anxiety. I’m not sure. I don’t have a disorder.

  • Winner of a video, I have been researching “techniques to overcome social anxiety” for a while now, and I think this has helped. You ever tried Telaavar Anxious Amanita (should be on google have a look )?

    It is a great one of a kind product for removing the root cause of social anxiety minus the hard work. Ive heard some awesome things about it and my work colleague after a lifetime of fighting got astronomical success with it.

  • Hi people! Try to search Dr. Sandra Cabot’s video about hyoerthyroid, she cured the cause of this disease and not just the symptoms.

    Most doctors only cures symptoms.
    Oprah Winfrey’s thyroid disease took 5 doctors to cure her disease, bevmcause she said she wants to cure the cause and not the symptoms only.

  • I have restlessness and fidgeting constantly. Literally nonstop. I fidget with pretty much everything I can. I also have insomnia, stomach aches at least once a day, constantly clenching my jaw and grinding my teeth, migraines, shaking hands, sweating, curling my toes… Pretty much everything on this list except hyperventilating and I don’t think I have heart palpitations.

  • Motherhood is filled with anxiety. It’s hard not to project that on your children when you know how cruel the world is. Preserving innocence is my top priority. We’re not as important or unique as our parent’s teach us to believe.

  • What if breathing exercises don’t work? My problem is that, as opposed to breathing heavier, I forget to breathe. I’ve tried to remind myself, but normally I’m so panicked that I forget to do even that, so exercises don’t ever work since I forget them. It also normally happens during times where I can’t just stop and breath or leave the environment (I.e. required public speaking in school).

  • So, before our bodies “developed” these responses, we were all eaten by the tigers? Glad I listened to this before I bought  “THE COURSE”.

  • I am a victim of domestic abuse. So many times when in the midst of a verbal abuse event…my body would freeze. I could not act. This is so hard to explain to anyone who has never experienced abuse. My friends would say…”why didn’t you do this…why didn’t you do that?” In freeze mode, the self seems to disappear unable to cope. Later, I could think of a thousand things that I could have said or done…but in the moment…frozen!
    Thankfully, I found my voice and moved on from my abuser.
    Thank You, Jesus!!!

  • For my anxious personality her non-anxiety temper makes me crush on her…. I got the clue) i got the message) the more frivolous girl i get the less i’m anxious 😉 never mind that joke, obviously we have to work with our minds to make peace and calm within us…. Formerly humankind did not consider the mind issues as they were engaged with nutrition and survival. And now they do…. impulsive brain just isn’t able to cope with those instincts ^)

  • You take Way to long to get to examples of grounding exercises. You go on and on but dont give specific examples. Makes one lose interest.

  • But what if it isn’t constant anxiety, but just you feel stressed and physically ill over small things? Is it a minor case of anxiety or just nervousness? I am so confused because sometimes I feel like I can’t even breathe right, but it’s not like I am just constantly fearful. It’s just often. I really don’t know what to think.

  • i’ve been hyperthyroid again since the end of february. i was stupid and stopped taking my medication and i was fine for a couple months but as i said, in february it all came back worse than it was before. as i write this, i’ve been on my meds since March 1st and for the last week, even though i’m on a beta blocker and methimazole, i still feel incredibly anxious and i do not feel as though the beta blocker is helping nearly as much as it did the first time around. tomorrow i’m going to call my endo again and see when i can get in because this is starting to become annoying. i don’t get how two weeks ago i was perfectly fine but now i’ve had anxiety every day for the last week. it is really starting to bother me.

    if you think you may be hyperactive, please go get checked out. they need to rule out all possibilities of cancer, grave’s disease, or a potential tumor. i wish y’all the best of luck

  • During this whole pandemic my anxiety has been out of this world.. I was diagnosed with Generalized anxiety disorder, and since this whole uncertainty / pandemic stuff happened.. my depersonalization & derealization has been nonstop. That feeling of being unreal is just so fun. Anyways, you’re not alone if you’re feeling overwhelmed!

  • There seems to be a chemical tie-in between low vitamin D, low serratonin and anxiety. If your D is low, then the serratonin in your brain is lowand if that is low, anxiety is high. Google it.

  • I feel that I helped cope with my anxiety by building up my self esteem by starting exercise and building hobbies but I still have a long way to go I still have trouble ever holding a conversation One more thing people who meet anxious people you should try to listen to them I have had better relationships with those friends that have listened to my problems to the point where it’s as if it doesn’t exist and I can do many activities with them. Right now it may seem they’re just negative but leaving them will make their anxiety even worse, I’ll tell you now that they’ll appreciate it in the long run.

  • i feel that my leading skill were awful because the first time i’m leading a group of people, i feel like i’m not listening much and that i’ve become a bad leader. now that i know every ‘first time’ is most likely to be the worst part, i think i might be able to forgive myself and learn from it. yeah, i think i could move on.

  • I had hypothyroidism and anxiety And chest pain and stomach pain but the stomach pain is only at night I started my treatment with Planet Ayurveda. I took “HYPERTHYROID CARE PACK” for an ayurvedic and natural solution to face problems in Hyperthyroidism.

Because i feel slight hand tremors and brittling/thinning and falling hair, my blood pressure is always elevated (for a months now) but i dont experience any weight loss,heat intoleranc,tachycardia etc.. im just scared because i have some of its symptoms. I also have anxiety..

    Edit:i found the reason behind my brittled hair and hair fall. Its because i shampoo everyday like 3x a day. During shower and before going to sleep. I found out that its bad for your hair and scalps..

    Edit#2: Ok right after i watched too many hyperthyroid videos my stomach started to feel like slightly burning and i feel a slight hunger. Even after eating.. shit. Is it because my anxiety replicates symptoms of the disease im fearing about??? This started to happen right after i started to worry hyperthroidism..

  • If you feel have one or more of these symptoms and they hinder you from your daily activities, please see psychologist and/or psychiatrist and don’t do self-diagnosis to yourself.

  • I’ve been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism a few months ago, and I’ve only been gaining more and more weight. I’ve been eating a little more than usual due to increased appetite but not enough for what I’ve been gaing. Anyone know if this is common? I know one of the symptoms is rapid weight loss but not at all in my case. Any one going through the same thing?

  • What does it mean when u have 0.007(undetectable) TSH with a normal ft4 of 17,71 (normal between 12-22) and high tpo 126?? Please help

  • does anyone with hypothyroidism experience stomach problems? because I did and also had panic attacks and I lose weight and get heart palpitations

  • My anxiety got worse on this quarantine. I could hear my heart palpitate and I’m sweating even with a cold atmosphere. I couldn’t even sleep at night so probably I’m also having insomnia. �� I told my parents abt this last night and they were open minded and is willing to help me.

  • Thank you so much for this information. I’ve been battling with anxiety disorders for a while and currently my doctor is about to stop my medication and I am feeling those sensations again, I have decided to take action to face this and your videos help me a lot

  • I was diagnosed with this at 4 and was super skinny and burning calories faster than I can consume them. My thyroid became so swell that I couldn’t open my mouth. I had a surgery that basically removed half of my thyroid and naturally I started producing less T3. I’m 18 now and chubby but at least I am alive! It just sucks that I have to work harder to lose wait then I did when I was a kid

  • Thank you very much for this video.
    Now I have finally understood that the triggers of anxiety can bypass thinking part of the brain, which is exactly what I noticed happening to me. (Lack of control over fight, flight, freeze response)

  • I was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder and adjustment disorder with depressive mood in October 2019. It was the words i needed to hear because i always wonder why overthink, feeling jumpy, nervousness and sometimes very quiet when I first meet people. Since i been diagnosed with this, i been coping better by being more active by going to the gym and talk to others about it. For those that have anxiety, you are not alone!

  • Im having symptoms of hyperthyroidism, but my blood test showed normal
    I have lost 18 lbs my hair is falling feel hungry real fast.so i dont know what to do next can someone help me.i have been to many doctors. No one can tell me whats happening to me

  • My antithyroid medication (started taking 2 months ago) has started to cause me severe muscle pains (myopathy?)
    Not sure if this is a cause for concern or just part of it but I’m miserable.

  • Me at 17. It started with low self-esteem, next social anxiety, high function anxiety, next panic attacks. I don’t know how to help yourself. I am broken. Oh I forgot about my OCD and taking pills ��

  • I have all them,i do sweat a lot in social events or when whith people, but i sleep well, and a while ago i started wanting more and more sleep and i still feel tired.
    I think that i can sleep well at night is because i’m in the same room as my sister and she might be tye most trusted person in my life, but that still doesn’t mean tyat i tell her about everything going on in my head or body too.

  • for 8 years i’ve been wondering what i have and i’m 99.9999% sure this is it. i live in florida but any time i go out of state where it is cold or it gets below like 60 in florida, my body freaks out over the cold and i shiver but if it gets too cold such as 40 or below or a chilly wind, my body will go into a shivering seizure where it feels like i’m going to die. truly the most uncomfortable feeling i have ever experienced, feels like my soul is taken from me and that i’m going to die. but i’ve also noticed other symptoms online such as sweating a lot, which i do when the room is room temperature or warm. kind of ironic that my body is overly sensitive to the cold but also sweats a lot in other conditions. But when I drink alcohol, I feels basically invincible when i get to a drunk level and even the cold doesn’t bother me. but as soon as i become sober, my body gets extremely sensitive to the temperature and i almost always feel overly cold which brings out anxiety. i have lost some weight recently like dropping from 245lbs to 225lbs even tho I’m 6’8 so I went from proportional to a little skinnier. I’m going to the doctor to get tested and hopefully I can start medicine or some kind of surgery because for the past almost 10 years, I felt like I was the only one who was super extra sensitive to cold weather to the point where I couldn’t even go outside sometimes. hoping i can get medicine or get this condition fixed asap

    Also had heart palpitations a few years ago and went to the emergency room and they said i had high blood pressure and the palpitations were from anxiety because they did not find anything wrong with my heart.

  • I am in a very bad place right now and this brought tears to my eyes several times. I can’t hold down a job because my anxiety prevents me from doing a lot of things even though I’m a talented machinist and mechanic I often turn to either drugs, procrastination, or self hatred. This will help a lot of ppl understand what it’s like to have anxiety and what it’s like to have a disorder. I am at a 10 and am willing to do anything to get rid of this.

  • the thing that I really really scare about my hyperthyroidism is people said if you got hyperthyroidism, then it’s hard to be pregnant. and yeah it’s always bothering me everyday

  • 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 had a nightmare last night. I was at the university and I was worrying about the lesson that was about to start. I decided to leave before it started. I actually have done that quite a lot in real life. But the dream made me realise that I’ve been doing that, because I have anxiety. And that it is a fight or flight response.

  • i dont know if other people have experienced this, but the way my anxiety manifests has constantly evolved. In this pretty rough episode I’ve been going through in the past few months, I have pretty debilitating physical symptoms that are the main focus of the anxiety, cause I’m scared of what they are. But what I’ve learnt is that the brain is very powerful, and can do all kinds of things to you if it’s feeding off fear. If you’re experiencing something like this, definitely treat it with importance and check it out, but understand that it’s always something that will be easier if you stay calm, cause that never helps. Then if you go to a doctor to check out the symptoms, you’ll have peace of mind, and if it turns out everythings all ok then when it comes up again it’s so much easier to ignore it and not let it manifest, because you know for certain it can’t hurt you

  • Hi. Lately, i experienced trauma. I’m always shaking whenever i saw that person. I just wanna ask if it is dangerous? Cause i have hyperthyroidism.

  • I’m feeling nauseaus almost every morning when I have to go to school(I’m in highschool, and the pressure just not good for me). It makes it hard to eat a proper breakfast or even going to school. I already knew it was related to anxiety, but this video helped me understanding it more. Thank you

  • Just found this channel by happenstance & boy do I need it. I think I have developed adrenal insufficiency due to the constant stress I’m experiencing.

  • I am suffering bfrom this problem since 3 years.. After my son birth.. I m too weak.. My still weight is 40 kg.. I am taking drugs like.. Newmercazole and inderal.. But no effects is showing

  • I would like to say thank you for making these videos but would like to state that I have been experiencing anxiety for 7 years now but have been able to manage it after the first attack but now I have been stuck in an everyday cycle, my question is with this everyday cycle can I still do the grounding and heal at the same time?

  • I try not to get like this. But it don’t matter. The sleep and the stomach are the worst. I want to run away but what if I end up to far from the bathroom? So I hide in the bath room. It ends up being the cleanest room in my house.

  • I got results in yesterday and they told me that my TSH levels are at 0.076. I’m pretty concerned but at the same time relieved to have some type of answer to my symptoms. I’ve lost weight (at first I attributed it to poor eating habits from depression / stress…but I’ve lost close to 20 lbs in a little over a month. I’ve never lost that amount so rapidly unless I literally went without eating for daaaays). My thoughts are out of wack, I’m randomly upset with people over the smallest things they do and it’s gotten to the point where I HATE them for a day or so but then realize how ridiculous I’m being and apologize. I’ve been extremely fatigued and have brain fog. I’ve experienced hair loss for actually quite a while. The past two weeks it’s gotten waaaay worse—to the point where I constantly feel like I’m going to pass out. My blood pressure is very high now (last checked it was 130/82).

    I’m worried and I’m scared that either I’m over reacting about the low TSH levels and I actually don’t really have a serious problem, or I have a serious problem and it’s going to be permanent.

    I feel stupid for typing this all out, but I’m just very concerned. I’m beginning to question my own reality because of how bad my moods and thoughts have been lately, especially these past two weeks.
