  1. Good luck, Mark! I hope it goes well for you and you feel great after finishing it. Please share your experience with us and what you felt about it all. I am thinking to give it a try too. I have had PTSD for 4 years now and there were some horrid memories in my life as well. It's funny how we once go through a traumatic incident and it would still haunt us for long. I didn't go to any therapist but did consult one doctor and luckily, he was amazing. He taught me some tips and tricks and also suggested me to try some alternative medicines too. This is one of them I look forward to your reply! 🙂
  2. Dear AriaRen, I hope you are doing well. As we know we all are discussing health anxiety here, it's also some of the symptoms of health anxiety. It is not necessarily true to have something wrong with our body. Health anxiety can be a result of just stress and over-thinking. It's good that you took your health seriously and consulted a doctor. Now just focus on relaxing your mind and body and be at ease. Stress can be such a bummer for all of us. I had some cough and flu going on few days ago and I cried my eyes out. My test came out negative. So, our body reacts the way we want it to react. Take charge of your happiness and bid farewell to stress and you will be okay 🙂 Try working on having a mental health resolution and I am sure it will help you a lot. Take care!
  3. I feel you have done a wonderful job and I am so proud of you! I have been struggling to lose weight I gained during quarantine and recently visited a diet expert. She made me realize that we need to be ready to accept the change when we shed a lot of weight. It is a shock to us and we might not accept it at once. So, please hang in there and give yourself some time before you accept the new you. 🙂 The weight is lost seems totally normal and this is the recommended time frame and pounds. Don't be stressed out, it will soon be okay. You need to manage your stress and take charge of your emotions. The experts have shared few ways to be prepared to tackle stress in advance. Do check it out and be happy! you have done a great job. 🙂
  4. I did the same as my anxiety was worse and had depression too. I started feeling some side-effects too but was too scared to discontinue and my doctor also told me to take them consistently. One day, my friend, who is a doctor too, visited me and saw my medicines and stopped me immediately. I felt a lot better I remember. So, I would highly recommend you to go see a doctor, have your medicines and don't stop trying. The limit should be from 2 weeks to 1 month and that's it. I would also recommend trying some alternative like this I hope you feel better soon! 🙂
  5. Yes, please don't underestimate the effects of anxiety on your body. I have been anxious all my life and I didn't even cross my 30s and have this weird heart and chest pain. I got a consultation booked with my physician and he ruled it out as a symptom of over-stressing. I was so pissed and shocked. We take our mental and physical health for granted and when we face the consequences, it's sometimes too late. I hope you would work on having a mental health resolution and list Dos and Don'ts and keep anxiety at bay. 🙂 If you want some inspiration, then these amazing resolutions would come in handy.
  6. I have a phobia of planes falling from the sky and can't stay out at night for some weirdest reason. It makes me feel paranoid and I also feel my anxiety flares up. I have trouble falling asleep if I am out and hear a plane sound coming from a distance. I always had it. I remember I was 5-6 years old when I felt I had this huge fear and used to have dreams too. I have had therapies to work on my phobias. But I guess they stay with you, only get little bit better. This helped my anxiety a lot: I don't really know what exactly cause us to have weird phobias but I do feel it is related to some weird thoughts, or memories. We recall them and feel scared again. I hope we all overcome them soon because anything that doesn't kill us, makes us stronger! 🙂
  7. It feels so good to discuss your fears and obsessions sans the fear of being judged and labelled crazy. I have had few of them and I can't get over them easily. My biggest issue is that the fan on my ceiling would drop on me and I would be crippled or with a injured face. I also have fears related to termites, insects, and reptiles make me go sleepless. I used to have them a lot in the past and I almost got anxiety. Then I started figuring it out and practiced these tips when having such fears My biggest tip would be to distract yourself as soon and as much as you can. Start facing these fears and you will surely be able to overcome them soon. :)
  8. I am so sorry that you had to go through this discomfort. Just to be on the safe side, please get ECG done and make sure that your heart is working fine. Another thing to check is if you are having any stress lately or anxiety problems. This can also cause chest congestion and can make you feel discomfort in your this region. Please have a talk with your mental health practitioner or your medical doctor and get these resolved. Try to relax and drink plenty of water. Try breathing slowly. Relax and inhale and exhale regularly for some time. If you are looking for some alternative medicines to try for your anxiety, this one is safer I hope you feel soon. 🙂
  9. haha! I totally understand what you mean to say. Managing a job, kids, and a house is a real tough job and I believe you are a super-hero if you manage while these responsibilities tag along. You need to include exercise as you know that sitting for more than 5 hours makes our body stall. Your body needs to move and back pain indicates that too. Please, take time out for yourself and recharge your body. 🙂 And keep reading about improving your health and mental health. This serves as a reminder that we need to take care and listen to our bodies Wish you health 🙂
  10. Stress is the real trigger when it starts out of the blue. I was stressed a few months back and it happened with me as well. I was having numb arms and legs issues as well. It was so frightening. I went to see my doctor and discussed with him my work-anxiety. He gave me few supplements, mostly iron, calcium, and Vitamin-D. He asked to manage my stress symptoms so that I am not causing damage to my body and internal organs, So, please guys, check this out, practice the tips And stay as further from stress and anxiety as you can. Getting a medical checkup and a talk with a medical doctor is highly suggested. Cheers and be happy! 🙂
  11. Yes, I do believe that. I have been anti-depressants for 1 year due to severe depression and it affected my cerebral performance. If we take anti-depressants for a longer period then it will surely have some side-effects or the other. Anti-depressants shall only be taken for a limited time period and the drug-dependence surely is hazardous. Please try some different medications time to time to give your body a break from anti-depressants and make strict changes to lifestyle as well. This will make sure you heal on your own. Lifestyle changes include exercising regularly, taking short vacations and traveling, keeping mind occupied with Artistic activities, etc. Also, please check this out and I hope it will help you you gain a peaceful mental condition and treat depression Take care! 🙂
  12. 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. 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!
  13. Hello! 🙂 I am someone who can totally understand and relate to your pain. I have ingrown toenail issues and both of my toenails are affected. I have had it for past 10 years and just now it got better after suffering for long. I had the hardest time wearing runners and sneakers as they use to always hurt me so bad. I have been to a doctor and he suggested that once I am over 25, he would perform a small surgery which treats it. But some his tips did wonders for me. Never wear shoes that are too tight for you. I always wear one size bigger and loose-fitted. I always grow my toenail to a longer size and never cut them too short. Your toenail has to be out of the flesh. That way it won't hurt. If you feel too worried about anything and feel anxious, try reading these simple tips and practice them to feel good in no time Take care!

  15. I am sorry that you have to deal with such a heart-breaking event. I can totally understand how it feels to be a reason behind someone's death. I hope you can recover real soon and forgive yourself real soon. I cannot imagine the kind of pain you have gone through. But please don't live your life carrying this trauma and the pain from it. You committed a mistake and we all do. The real essence is to learn from them, pray for your forgiveness, and forget the post.
