Living with severe anxiety and panic for most of my life, I never imagined a day where I would wake up without worry, fear, and anticipation – the kind that makes getting out of bed seem impossible. I remember staying under the covers hiding from every problem I thought I had, making life that much harder for myself and the people I love most. You don't have to let anxiety rule your life. Seek the help you need and be open with those who love you. And, when you find yourself in the middle of having a panic attack or chronic worrying, try the technique I discuss in this video. I hope it's the start of a new appreciation for yourself. xo

Out of the millions of us who have this crap, has anyone’s fears ever come true?? After over a decade with GAD and panic, mine haven’t. I mean other than the fear of having anxiety. What a stupid stupid disease. It’s honestly comical when you’re not anxious. Ridiculous. Without therapy or meds I have gone from panicking constantly and not being able to sleep to having chronic mild worry and intrusive taboo thoughts.
1. I quit my horrid alcoholism.
2. Found Christ as my centre.
3. Eat immaculately (lots of probiotics)
4. Worked hard to establish a healthy sleep pattern (7-8 hours a night, and about 1-3 “bad” nights/month).
Nowhere near home free, but it’s definitely better than drinking myself to oblivion every night just to sleep and escape myself. I’m not sure what more I can do if I keep on coming short of home free. Perhaps try 20 sessions of CBT, but I’ve learned so much about it online I’m not sure if it would be effective. Then after that, maybe meds. Who knows.
I don't completely agree. Why not try and find the real cause of the clearly physical problems? Maybe she has a severe deficiency, lack of exercise, maybe she eats too much sugar and has diabetes? She is at least 20 pounds overweight. I don't want to be cruel, I just know how much these things matter. Not to mention hormone balance. Maybe it's her menopauze, a lack of testosterone. She wouldn't be the first. Female bodies still don't know what to do after child bearing age.
haha actually when I talk back to it with postive thoughts it fights back its like Im talking to another person except its still me NO I DO NOT HAVE MULTIPLE PERSONALITY DISORDER. but its just like anxiety is like a monster that feeds off me and I don’t know if i actually have OCD but I probably do cuz If I tap a pencil an odd amount of time I have to tap it again to get an even number lol idk I just have this thing about odd numbers lol haha so what I do instead is I stand up and make sure im alone so I don’t get judged by my family and just give my mind a lecture yes I know its weird but it helps me lolll

I hope and pray that those people who experiences anxiety, will feel okay and be able to have control of their feelings :) If I have did it, so can you! Just believe in the power of positivity, love and prayers! Everything's gonna be alright!
I used to smoke marijuana.. Since 2 or 3 yrs ago.. I m from India a small village.. I completely thought myself that I m going to die.. I really suffer 3 month... Now I can admit I can control anxiety very much preparing for India,'S toughest exam.. But feeling memory power..! But I m trying and I m studying daily +12 hours irrespective any anxiety
She said somthing that helps people with many forms of mental distress. And that is to realize and say that "symptoms are distressing
, but not dangerous" ; where symptoms can be as terrifying as anxiety attatcks or more mild as in ocd or sleep problems.
Try this....Be a big brother or sister to someone that is doing worse than you. As you explain how to cope, your brain listens and your own behavior starts to change. I used to yell in the car F U anxiety now what now what....eventually you get tired of being afraid and you purposely go to places that would cause anxiety just to challenge the monster...

I'm writing in reference the footage about your story inside this link:
I would like to share it as a videostory on our Facebook, Instagram and Youtube pages, because I think it could be inspiring for all our readers.
That’s why I am asking your permission to use your material, crediting you.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Thanks in advance.
I know how does it feel like being mentally and physically depressed.I was struck twice by severe anxiety/panic attach in last ten years and believe me it was so so bad.
Mind is the only solution.Control it and feed it with good thoughts!!
I like everything she said except assigning a false cause to the trigger, I think u should use something motivational such as, outloud if you can or in your head, say “I am Your Name, and a motivational statement after, for example I’d say what the fuck am I doing, this isn’t me let’s go, excuse my French but swearing will also at as extra motivation because you’re not used to it
How could you not know what is it that's causing you anxiety or panic. I wish it was all "unknown" and I could just say "it's nothing, no reason why this happening". But sadly reality is more cruel and you know exactly if it's work, family, studies, health...
I always thought I don’t need to go see a psychiatrist, but let me tell you, after my mom brought me there, it got better! It really helps me! It’s important to see someone who can tell you what’s happening, even if you think you can research it yourself.
Everyone sometimes has anxiety attacks, and that’s okay. Everyone will experience it because it’s a normal reaction of our body, and you can limit you panic attacks to a normal amount, but you need help to do it.
ALSO! Use „Bach’s Rescue Remedy“! I first heard of it at my psychiatrist, and it helps so much to control my panic attacks.
She's telling her what is happening .. most of us know what a panic attack is like.. but she's not telling her she may have Adrenal fatigue or medical condition like thyroid disease. I mean what is aniexty? Aniexty is when to many neurons are firing at the same time in yoyr brain. I'd look in too getting your thyroid looked at because your sympatetic nervous system has ALOT to do with anxiety and depression. HPA axis dysregulation...Nutrient deficiencies are rampant in our world today and everyone is nutritionally deficient because we dont have the same soil we once did like back 100+ year's ago . Strengthen up your vagus nerve too,have cold showers (do research if you have a medical condition or pregnant etc) cold showers are excellent for activating your parasympatetic nervous system ( rest and digest )
Im only 26 right know. Want to know how i beat it. I first EXCEPTED MY ANXIETY!! Many of us that struggle with it do not want to except it and we seek meds to calm it for us instead of learning to control it and learning about it. It took me months but when i excepted it i said what can i do next..Its been 7 months since last panic attack.i Struggled with it for the 1st 4 months hard Could not sleep in that time shaky,anxious, on the edge. If i drove my car boom panic attack. If i heard any annoying noise that stressed me out to much boom panic attack. Could not even go to restraunts cause of the noise of spoons. Have never had anxiety in my life. But when i randomly got it. i was at work was tired lack of sleep stressed to the max! And it hit me like a lightning bolt. Like if i needed to run a mile with a rapid heartbeat. And lightheaded or dizzy both hands and arm on Pinky bottom side got numb. thought i was gonna die. So i panic and ran outside called wife that said im getting heart attack. To Make long story short therapy helped me i can know control it and manage my life normal. Learned breathing technique and flex muscle technique personally the muscle technique worked better for me it relaxes the tensed muscles when i feel it coming. Hopefully if their is anybody out their struggling with it. You are not alone. I feel your struggle your tiredness your tension headaches and pain. Learn to Except it and train yourself to control it. Stay away from sugar and salts and COFFEE! Would make it worse. When it first hits you.....
Dear brother and sister.. I would like to share with you something very special and my personal experience if you want to stay happy and relax and want to erase all your stress and anxiety then I know one thing that's really helpful 100% that is Listen the Holy Quraan especially chapter no 55 Surah Rehman (The Beneficent ). 3 times a day morning midday and before sleeping 3 times per day for 7 days and each time after hearing at the end drink 1 glass of water.try it .it It's Miracle. . You can watch it or download it from YouTube.... peace from pakistan..... Allah bless everyone..
There is always hope. I'm 38 and it started for me only about a year ago. At first it sure felt hopeless and scary but it gets better. 50mg of zoloft made a world of difference. I cleaned up my diet and hydrate properly which helped a lot. A big help right away is exercise. Do it! When you feel it coming on focus on relaxing your body (mainly your neck and shoulders) and slow breathing. Remember Its not going to kill you. Except what's happening be clearing your mind about it it's not going to hurt you relax your body. Good luck
Thank you so much for this video . I am newly diagnosed with Anxiety Disorder . I had always have this fear of Dying for no Apparent reason and the feeling and thought keeps coming back without an explanation . I feel my body has no control of what I want it to feel . I have tried positive self talking and have told myself to get rid of that feeling .
Now that I watch this video I believe I can try this method to divert my mind .
I had an anxiety attack when I was doing my Nasa internship. It started with precal and its like you remember everything that day. Your brain goes bananas. I learn so much all my beliefs were erase. I worried because I started questioning life. Speed of light events fast foward like nothing. Scenes repeated themselves. I started to hear everyones conversations. It is very real and its really scary. It is the worse feeling in the world because its hard to control the brain. I manage to overcome it. Now I am almost done with my engineering degree. I wish the best of luck yo anyone suffering thru anxiety.
One point that might help some people. I have always suffered anxiety but one method I have found to be incredibly effective at eliminating anxiety/fear in the short term is: Extreme physical exertion. In the gym, or out running, or smashing a hammer onto an old brick wall, whatever you are able to physically do, do that activity until you are utterly and completely physically exhausted. I guarantee you will have no energy left to feel anxious. Total physical exhaustion is an absolutely wonderful feeling to anyone who hasn't experienced it. And then you sleep like a baby. Highly recommend it!
It's actually amazing how our mind, what we're believing at a particular moment can actually have chemical effects in our body that are instantaneous. Fair enough that our primitive fear system can produce adrenaline or nor adrenaline etc in response to some stimulus but to think that the simply picture/belief held in our mind at a particular moment can cause the release of chemicals and massively overactive our nervous system is amazing.
Your videos and speeches have touched and changed my life for the positive better. I am so grateful to have found you and know that I have the tools to Floreis and make positive changes, thank you from the bottom of my heart M’s Robbins
You’re definitely not alone. I struggle really bad as well. I admire you so much for posting this video. I just made a video expressing how I struggle with anxiety and depression and it was hard. It’s hard to be vulnerable with the world. Here’s the link to my video. https://youtu.be/SgtK3DR9mZg Hope you can watch. I don’t personally know anyone going through these struggles so since we relate I hope we can support one another and the rest of the people going through this
Antidepressants are medications that can help relieve symptoms of depression, social anxiety disorder, anxiety disorders, seasonal affective disorder, and dysthymia, or mild chronic depression, as well as other conditions.
They aim to correct chemical imbalances of neurotransmitters in the brain that are believed to be responsible for changes in mood and behavior.
Depression Medications (Antidepressants)
These are the most commonly prescribed type of antidepressant.
Serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are used to treat major depression, mood disorders, and possibly but less commonly attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), anxiety disorders, menopausal symptoms, fibromyalgia, and chronic neuropathic pain.
SNRIs raise levels of serotonin and norepinephrine, two neurotransmitters in the brain that play a key role in stabilizing mood.
Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are the most commonly prescribed antidepressants. They are effective in treating depression, and they have fewer side effects than the other antidepressants.
SSRIs block the reuptake, or absorption, of serotonin in the brain. This makes it easier for the brain cells to receive and send messages, resulting in better and more stable moods.
They are called "selective" because they mainly seem to affect serotonin, and not the other neurotransmitters.
