    If the serotonine gone and you got chronic stress all muscles bombed with cortisol everyday for years it's not doable without medication.

  2. Talking to you all who feel like you can't change your life around…I was like that for a long time, but I succeeded in changing my life by 180 degrees and now I am a 100% happier person than I was before.

  6. It’s useless I’m 42 I have had anxiety since I was 10 I have agoraphobia and have studied everything and the counselors that come to the house are in school and quit within months to go to “better jobs” so watching this I hope it helps someone to help others. At 42 I am a lost cause. Praying for you all who want to help others and those who need help and can’t get help just medicine.

  7. no idea what the last lady is talking about i must have zoned out for 1 second and then the rest was irrelevant lol

  8. I'm at my critical point now don't know if I'm over exaggerating. But I'm stuck and can't seem to move hope this is useful

  9. People with anxiety live in a very chaotic environment. It is unpredictability that make people nervous and fearful.

  10. I have tried a lot of different things trying to improve my physical and mental health. The one that worked for me was the Forwago personalized program.

  11. I feel dizziness and high blood pressure when Iam sexualy excited… I can't even flirt with my girl friend… Is this anxiety problem or something.. Please somebody help me out 😢😢😢😢😢😢😭😭😭

  12. Reading the comments a lot of them seem like they didn't hear the lecture. They may have listened to it but hearing and comprehending is different. Go back look at the tips and types of therapy and how we can help ourselves when therapy is out of reach. Just thinking it away is not appropriate for everyone and making this statement while seemingly helpful will make a lot feel more anxious as some feel as if they failed if they aren't able to think it away by themselves.

  13.

Thanks so much I discovered this Herpes treatment Method Dr Abumere herbal home. it was quite amazing seeing the same Herpes virus that have been hunting me my whole life varnish http://www.drabumereherbalremedy.home.blog

  15. For my future reference: 1:01:10 to 1:23:12 Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). Thoughts (mental habits, overestimate risk of threat and underestimate ability to cope, difficulty disengaging from negative thoughts, dysfunctional). Feelings. Behavior.

    1:07:48 Treatments:
    Identify the negative automatic thoughts. Evaluate how accurate or useful the thought is. (Are there ways I could cope? It's not just positive thinking – suggesting that is not helpful. Take a more balanced, realistic view and less extreme thoughts). Replace thought with a more accurate or helpful one. Test out thoughts with exposure to feared situations (done in steps and being mindful of each feeling, response, reality and ability to cope).

    1:14:55. Cognitive Bias Modification (CBM) Situation/task and pairing with healthier interpretations.

    Mindfulness. Awareness. Healthier skills. Helpful.

    Thank you.

  16. Thank you to each of you for your expertise and hard work on this meaningful subject —and for sharing it with us! Excellent presentation!

  17. I live with Addisons disease…. My adrenal glands fdo not work. I will not accept my coping mechanism is a prob but Im reminded I dont react to extra home made bs "normal"….. I have PTSD a rape in histoery(2 rapes/ one with young childhood/ a rape as a grown man as well, so abandonment and trust issues and my body doesnt produce stress hormones/Cortisol…. but when DOCS tell me I cannot feel …. it makes me wanna punch them in the face to see if their pain is ALSO in THEIR HEAD….. but ots eay to think we dsee FROM THE OUTSIDE IN as iif that person who iis inside looking out HAS LOST AWARENESS. THIS ASSUMPTION people gives us HELPS the LOOP that shackles us. UNTIL we address FEAR with LOVE it NEVER GOES AWAY, but I feel people are emotionally broken and MOST PEOPLE can LIE and HIDE IT BETTER. . . .I get FEARFUL of those who KNOW but choose to pretend they dont see…. Invasion of the Body Snatchers

  18. the fear of not getting presents from santa clause…..or the fear of trusting again after mommy and daddy are found out to have been lying to their children …..trust issues could be rooted that far back…. seems like we are clouded from day one…… since those with the POWER keep us oppressed WITH FEAR, no?
