  1. Hello everyone, I decided to do some research tonight and found some interesting facts about depression and how prevalent it is. Please check my new video out regarding this topic. Also, please subscribe if you would like more of my content in the future. Thank you so much.
  2. Hey Geezer! Thanks for the reply and conversation. I am sorry I did not make it clear in that video if I have health anxiety. Yes, I have had health anxiety tied into PTSD, depression, and GAD. My health anxiety began because when my PTSD/GAD symptoms began, I did not know what was happening to me. I felt as if I was physically dying everyday for a very long time. The symptoms were physical and mental in nature. It totally freaked me out. I went to the doctor almost daily and always got the "you're clear" from the doctors. They referred me to mental health. But I never believed anxiety to be the case. I didn't believe it was mental because in my mind how could mental illness manifest itself in such a way that it makes your body feel like it's dying. I soon came to the realization that yes, in fact it was PTSD/health anxiety/GAD. The worst part about this whole thing is becoming isolated, which I did. I isolated myself because it was scary, I didn't want to be around anyone else, I was afraid of judgement from others. Isolation is comfortable yes, but it's also safety seeking. And with safety seeking, it reinforces anxious tendencies to return. We have to face our fears head on and accept them for what they are. Fear is a tricky thing, but knowing the difference between fear based thoughts and reality is the key. I am rambling at this point, I would suggest to continue watching my videos. I plan to make some more regarding my experience and I hope it helps you. Feel free to ask me any questions along the way.
  3. Hey everyone! I made a video and posted it on YouTube about my anxiety and depression and PTSD. I’d like some feedback and conversation about these issues. I’ve had PTSD now for over five years since my service in Iraq. I am wondering, is there anyone else out there who has PTSD and what are some ways you have treated and managed it? Has life gotten any better for you? And any suggestions to those who may be experiencing it for the first time? Thanks so much.
  4. This post is not to promote my channel by any means. I am new to this community. I created a video, one part of a series talking about anxiety and my experience. I would hope that some of you may find some good information and someone to relate to by watching my video. I have struggled with anxiety and depression for a long time now. And I believe its time for me to talk a little bit about it. I haven't talked about it for a long time. But figured it would be good for me and others to have an open conversation about these issues. Thank you so much everyone for what you do here. Hope to get some good feedback. Talk to you all soon!
