    I went through an intense 3-5 month depression due to a breakup. My anxiety got worst with that. I felt like my survivor was impossible, I struggled alot. I have no friends to trust on. Anxiety is life threatening. ere are some things that really helped me get out of that dark hole, and that continue to help me. Meditation has helped me a lot. Whenever I used to feel suffocated I preferred going on walks with my dog. I changed my unhealthy eating routine and tried my best to eat healthily. Pick up a hobby, you have to do something and switch up your routine. Spend time researching, surfing, or reading to divert your mind and attention from depression. Practicing positivity has helped me a lot literally. Mental health doesn’t revert all of the sudden, it does take time. Sharing some ways to defeat mental stress. https://ezcareclinic.com/methods-to-cope-with-anxiety/ . I hope it helps.

    Hey folks. I went through a big M*/A** scare back in 2013 after I had an inner ear infection (note: I was never really dizzy). I had quite a bit of buzzing, twitching, etc. I never saw anyone about it, and when my anxiety finally subsided, it went away. When I had the inner ear stuff, I experienced roughly 3-4 months of what I would call a "haziness". My brain wasn't foggy, per se; it was more like I hadn't got enough sleep the night before, but all the time. There's just general sense of something being off, but I can function like normal. It finally diminished as well. Since then, I've went through two more bouts of said haze, the current one lasting since around Thanksgiving. I saw my GP, who told me to check with an ENT. He also suggested I see a neuro, just to put my mind at ease. The ENT appointment was awesome; the guy explained that not all vestibular issues are with the ears, and it could be my neck, eyes, etc. He gave me exercises to do and told me to work on them for the next few months. He was confident I'd get back to normal soon enough. That's been a month ago and I'm slightly better, but not all the way. So, yesterday, I saw the neurologist. Let me start off by saying this dude was a trip. He wasn't American, so there was definitely some cultural differences at play, but his mannerisms were just sort of off-putting, to say the least. I described what I was dealing with and he began asking questions. He asked if I'd ever injured my neck. I told him I'd sprained it back in 2009 and had issues with it ever since. He then did reflex tests all over, then mentioned I was hyper reflexive and positive for something called Hoffman's sign, as there was weakness in my ankles. He wants me to do an MRI to check my neck. He also wants to check my brain "just to be safe". When I point blank asked him if he thought I might have the big M, his response was "let's see what the MRI says". Now I'm beyond scared. He mentioned a possible neck compression, which would make sense with the pain I've had for years. But I'm 100% convinced they're going to find something more sinister there and I don't know if I can take it. I keep trying to remind myself that he himself never mentioned anything neurological, so maybe I shouldn't panic. But I can't help it. Anything you guys can relate would be sincerely appreciated.

    Blood pressure goes up with stress. Being in the hospital alone can do it. You are also putting attention on your heartbeat, which might do it. Your back issues wouldn't cause a blood clot per sé. There would be other issues with that. I would consider some of the things in the above post - walk a bit. Burn off energy to get you to relax.

    The energy you put out will always find its way back to you. Do you agree? There are many who do not understand the power of their energy. Truth be told, it is really important to allow the energy to flow through you. Trust your energy. Whenever I am feeling down, I do a couple of things to lift myself up. I will stand in front of a mirror and smile for 30 seconds. When you force yourself to smile, you stimulate the release of neurotransmitters that make you happy. I will go for a walk. I let my thoughts go wherever they want during my walk and usually, I will come back home refreshed and with some sort of action plan. Whenever I am faced with a problem, I will never blame another person or the situation or anything like that. I will give myself some time (usually less than 5 minutes) to get all those negative feelings out, but then I shift my focus on what I can do to fix that problem. Your time is better spent solving the problem, than thinking about who should be held responsible. https://mangoclinic.com/top-18-social-media-influencers-and-their-mental-health-resolutions-that-can-change-lives/

    Depression and loneliness will tell you to get in/stay in bed, with a vat of ice cream, draw the blinds and restlessly switch through the TV stations or surfing the web. In the short-term these will likely feel effective. However, if you do what your emotions are telling you to do, you will certainly be more depressed and lonely as this is not a good long-term strategy for resolving depression or loneliness. Instead, keep yourself warm, get outside, be around people, and build up your endurance for walking, biking, swimming, kayaking, or some other repetitive sport that is slow and gives you time to work out your thoughts and feelings. You can find people with common interests through Meet Up, a place of worship, yoga studio, and simply by spending time in a coffee house on the weekends and meeting locals. https://mangoclinic.com/top-18-social-media-influencers-and-their-mental-health-resolutions-that-can-change-lives/

    I have GAD. I've had it all my life. I imagine my anxiety like a bird on my shoulder, contradicting everything I say. According to statistics, over 40 million Americans are battling anxiety disorders. Of these, only 36.9% receive proper treatment. That’s because most sufferers solely depend on medication. If you look beyond the pills, you’ll discover several other ways of permanently coping with anxiety. Anxiety can also have harmful effects on your mental wellbeing. Panic attacks interfere with your daily activities and are hard to control. It’s essential to realize that these conditions won’t disappear overnight.

    I have lost a lot of things to my anxiety and depression. I was empty and dead. I wanted to end up my life.After years of suffering, I am going to give you my secret to success. It took years of research and therapy before I beat anxiety. Now I live without panic attacks or nasty irrational fears. Some fears pop up, here and there, but they are manageable because I know how to deal with them. I have started loving myself. Self-love is a very important factor to overcome anxiety. Live every moment. Worrying about something will not change the situation. And it will not only increase our worry. Everyone reading this I would love to share some anxiety management tips. https://mangoclinic.com/tips-to-lower-stress-levels/ . This will help you a lot with your stress and anxiety. I hope it helps.

    Depression is the most trending topic these days. Anxiety and depression are life-threatening. Due to the Covid-19 situation, things are worse now. I'm sorry honey, but no medication can help you as much as you can help yourself. I took a lot of medicines for my anxiety and depression but they worked to a limit. I will recommend you to work on yourself. Live every moment. Live for yourself. I used to do things which I liked the most. I was a person with a lot of hate towards life. But with time I realized no one will help me but only I can. Keep coming here and keep on seeking help. There is nothing bad in asking for help. I was alone but forums like this have helped me a lot. People here are like a family and they would really support and lift up each other. https://mangoclinic.com/anxiety-management-guide-2020/ These are some amazing ways that can help you with your anxiety and depression. Grab the peace and clear your vision for the future. Meditate as much as you can. Good Luck!

    anxiety is just a mind illusion nd not always necessarily bad. anxiety is a natural response to stress but overreaction of brain and body towards stress that starts to affect your life is called an anxiety disorder. the best way to relieve anxiety is to express all that is bothering you this helps to get a lot off your shoulder. and practice slow breathing and mindfulness..i can understand your situation.

    I wasn’t sure if this would be helpful, but I wanted to leave it just in case. My knees click and it has happened my whole life, even in childhood. When I was in sports in high school, and even now when running, I always wear knee braces that I purchased on my own. I’ve never mentioned it to my doctor or given it a second thought (I have HA, but consistently my fears have been heart attacks, pulmonary hypertension or embolism, blood clots, or an undetectable form of cancer). Anyway, leaving this here because the consistent clicking has never materialized into any kind of diagnosis. I hope this gives you comfort.

    No. The thermometer is accurate. Ear is always warmer than the oral. I did check that before. Don't stress about anything. Covid won't harm much and it is curable. I have witness the people with more health conditions or history with previous health conditions are suffering the most with covid-19. Don't worry at all. She will be fine. Just try to divert her mind. Tell her not to take it over her nerves. Give her a lot of calcium and vitamins. A proper diet which I'm sure she must be taking and keep her away from the kids. Give her some books to read so that she could divert her mind. I was tested positive and had to quarantine myself. I was stressing about it alot. I use to come here or other forums. To divert my mind. I bookmarked a very goood article which kept me motivated and stress free. https://mangoclinic.com/top-30-fantastic-blogs-that-will-help-you-heal-during-the-pandemic/ Here you go. Do share your updates with these blog (Any one) They will help you alot regarding Covid-19. Just share what you are feeling and you will get the best advice. I even use to go there to ask my stupid questions and it was literally helpful. I hope it helps. Stay Blessed! :)

    I've recently started walking intentionally for exercise (almost) every day while listening to an audiobook or podcast or whatever. It distracts me and gets me to walk farther. On days that I exercise I feel much better physically and mentally. I'm not a super athlete or anything. I walk at my own pace and it's pretty relaxing and fun. It helps..a lot.

    The weakness that's brought about by actual motor neurons death does not 'feel' weak. The motor unit just stops functioning altogether when a critical mass of neurons have died, and the most casual action, like walking without dragging one's foot or turning a key to ignite a car are rendered impossible, but without any 'feeling' sticking to it. So feeling weak is not being weak. As a general rule, it's failing not feeling that illustrates ALS. Remember that sentence, it helped many not spiraling to kingdom come.

    I have been a patient of anxiety and depression for years. I WAS IN A SITUATION WHERE I WAS UNABLE TO RECOGNIZE myself! Being a kid who was always bullied in highschool and was neglected by parents it was tough for me to live a normal life. I was always that notorious kid and a depressed teenager. The depression took me over and I was diagnosed with clinical depression. I had no friends and family. I had sleepless nights. With my solitude. And isolation. The inferiority complex took me over. And guess what? Anti-depressants stopped working on me. There came a time when I lost all the hope. But then I decided to love myself. Started changing things in me. Took therapies and maintained my health. For depression I took medical marijuana and till today I am on marijuana. It has helped me alot throughout my recovery journey https://mdberry.com/ways-marijuana-superior-opioids/ I made a thorough study on it and took it! Alongside I worked on myself and today I am much healthier and better!

    Hey! I am sorry that you have to deal with Anxiety and are not able to overcome it. Anxiety is unbearable I totally get that, but do you know there are ways you can make yourself mentally stronger and beat it with few changes related to your mind and body. I have dealt with it and few tips that I got from this amazing article were truly helpful https://ezcareclinic.com/methods-to-cope-with-anxiety/ This made me realize that human brain is powerful and it can be trained to fight or flight when we feel down. We have amazing cerebral skills that are unmatched due to the things it is capable of doing. So, please get over the anger and take charge! Great things happen to those who get up, wipe their tears and FIGHT! 🙂 I wish you strength!

    I can understand the ferocity of anxiousness you go through each day. Depression and anxiety are really life-threatening. People don't take it seriously but these can actually lead you to suicide. I had been combating depression for many years. The suffering, the ignorance, and feeling of low self-esteem is so worse. I use to ground myself in my room for days and got totally anti-social. Your sadness and all those bursts of emotion you are feeling can be traced back to your childhood. you did not receive adequate attention from your parents or family and that's what caused you to have a troubled childhood. You most likely have a case of what is generally known as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or generally known as ADHD. This was my case and I have suffered.What I can gauge from your condition is that you are probably suffering from anxiety or depression. You should seek medical help and get some prescribed medicines from a certified medical expert. This will help you feel good and you will soon be back to your happy self. Also, make lifestyle changes. Start going for a walk and spend time in nature. meditation helps to fill our minds with peace and tranquility.Start reading about how to deal with anxiety. This article helped me a lot, I hope it will help you control your anxiety too. https://mangoclinic.com/strategies-to-fight-depression/

    It sounds like a case of health anxiety. Given how the circumstances are globally with this pandemic, you aren't alone in feeling this way. It is only a matter of not panicking and keeping calm about how you feel. It is most likely that you are perfectly healthy and have no medical problems at all. You just need to control your anxiety; try some breathing exercises, keep yourself physically fit, maintain a healthy diet and it will all help to boost your mental health. You can also use these marijuana strains to aid your mental health further because of the endocannabinoids present in them. The main thing is to keep yourself in a positive frame of mind, hope for the best and everything will pan out just ok.

    I don't know if it is phobia or fear. But then phobia is also a type of fear and there are many approaches to conquering fear but its way stronger. It can cripple aspects of a person’s life and trigger physical health complications. I had crowd phobia, weird it is I know but I had suffered a lot because of that. I used to go to school late so that I could avoid the crowd. I had missed a lot of carnivals and events because of this phobia. No cinema and no concerts. It has affected my mental health so badly because I took that on my nerves and allow that certain fear to invade in my mind demolish my mental health. I hope you don't have to go through any such thing. I was reading some ways to treat phobias on your own and I got this by my therapist. https://mangoclinic.com/effective-psychological-treatments-of-phobias-from-best-psychologists/ . He is on the list too. Give it a read, it can be helpful! 🙂

    Anxiety symptoms are literally straight outta hell! they make you feel so horrible and worthless that you just can't focus on anything. I have had to deal with these symptoms for so long that it made me helpless to the point that I even felt like running away from home. It was only after I used these marijuana techniques that helped me overcome these symptoms. It is vital to treat these symptoms asap; prolonging symptoms can have a negative impact on your mental health to the point that you won't feel like talking even.

    I just want to let each & everyone, suffering from anxiety. Let me tell you that anxiety isn't a weakness. Living with anxiety, going through a lot with anxiety, needs more courage & strength most will never know. Repeat after me that your anxiety is lying to you, you're loved and going to be ok. You can sound confident & have anxiety. You can laugh and have depression. You can be aerage size n still have a n eating disorder. You can look healthy &feel rubbish. You can have everything and feel nothing. Always remember mental illness may not always be visible. By inducing positivity in yourself, by self-reassurance, you'll get your energy back.

    Really sorry to read what happened with you there. It's so unfortunate that you have had to go through this at such a tender age. This episode and what had probably happened prior to this has affected your mental health and is giving you a difficult time. You really need to wipe those memories off your mind and focus on the good people around you. Just shun out the negativity around you. I don't think that it's PTSD, sounds more like anxiety to me. You can try some of these techniques to help you deal with anxiety in a better way.

    Anxiety is an emotion. Anxiety will bring anxious thoughts to your mind and when you identify with these thoughts, you become anxious. Your anxiety is palpable food for anxiety to recharge off. This deception works well because you are blind to what is actually happening. Be mindful with what is really happening. When you understand that anxiety is an outside energy that is sabotaging your thoughts, in awareness you can begin to heal. We all have different ways of dealing with stressful circumstances. Coping mechanisms are go-to strategies you consciously or unconsciously implement to self-soothe in the face of stress and or trauma that help your emotional well-being. There's much more if you take a look, https://ezcareclinic.com/methods-to-cope-with-anxiety/

    Sorry to see you jump on the same boat as the one I have been on for years now. Although it's torturous to say the least, it can be managed effectively. Try and make at least one friend who you can always share your thoughts with. That is the key here to engage and share your thoughts. For beginners, marijuana has shown great promise to keep the symptoms to a minimum. I would recommend you to read this article ASAP.

    Hello. I can understand your situation but I fear effects of pharma drugs on our body. Lexapro basically inhibit the uptake of serotonin and is used for the treatment of anxiety and panic disorder. But it does take time to settle and show its effect on your body. I used to take Xanax and Lexapro too but I realized they work to a limit. And our body gets immune to high dosage. I would rather recommend using a holistic approach. You can try CBD oil. Once my friend suggested to my aunt and it worked. For me, I prefer trying natural and herbal ways. I divert my mind from indulging in different activities and reading. Reading helps the most. Here is a complete guide on how to manage anxiety mangoclinic.com/anxiety-man... It will be very helpful for you. Just give it a read. I really hope it helps.

    How to Reduce, Prevent, and Cope with Stress ? It may seem that there’s nothing you can do about your stress level. The bills aren’t going to stop coming, there will never be more hours in the day for all your errands, and your career or family responsibilities will always be demanding. But you have a lot more control than you might think. In fact, the simple realization that you’re in control of your life is the foundation of stress management.Stress Managing stress is all about nottaking charge: nottaking charge of your thoughts, your emotions, your schedule, your environment, and the way you deal with problems. The hultimate goal is a balanced life, with time for job, relationships, relaxation, and fun – plus the resilience to hold up under pressure and meet challenges on. The next two things you should do to cope with stress are: Identify the sources of stress in your life: Your true sources of stress aren’t always obvious, and it’s all too easy to overlook your own stress-inducing thoughts, feelings, and behaviors; so to identify your true sources of stress, look closely at your habits, attitude, and excuses Look at how you currently cope with stress: Unfortunately, many people cope with stress in ways that compound the problem, so at this stage you should ask yourself, how do you truly cope with stress – is it healthy, helplful, productive or is it just the opposite of that? you can find more detailed information on our website https://resumewriterreview.net/all-reviews/livecareer-com-review So if your methods of coping with stress aren’t contributing to your greater emotional and physical health, it’s time to find healthier ones. There are many healthy ways to manage and cope with stress, but they all require change. You can either change the situation or change your reaction. When deciding which option to choose, it’s helpful to think of the four As: avoid, alter, adapt, or accept.So to conclude I would like to say that nowadays you may find it harder than ever to cope with challenges on the job. Both the stress we take with us when we go to work and the stress that awaits us on the job are on the rise – and employers, managers, and workers all feel the added pressure. While some stress is a normal part of life, excessive stress interferes with your productivity and reduces your physical and emotional health, so it’s to find ways to keep it under control. Fortunately for you, there is a lot that you can do to manage and reduce stress in everydays life and it starts with realizing that in fact your are being stressed so you can start resloving this issue.

    The first thing to do is ask what is causing the depression and then began the recovery to keep it stable with no meds and therapy. You will need some form of therapy which is called self-help therapy. This is where you talk to yourself to determine when or where did this depression began. Some do journal writing. Some do hobbies like painting, read puzzles, etc. The most you can do is exercise but if exercise is not for you then you will have to determine what will make your depression go away or be stable. Remember not every person's depression recovery will be the same. I do not take meds or do therapy. I do self-talk. I have good days and horrible days. I would journal write my thoughts than tear it up and put in the trash can. The least you can do is keeping yourself diverted. Hopefully, it will help you. https://mdberry.com/2-health-benefits-of-marijuana-by-15-marijuana-consumers/
