Can panic and anxiety cause other mental illness?
im male 19 and I have had severe anxiety for about 5 months now and I barely started taking xanax(0.25) on and off for abouth 1 month and it really works. But when I was get in “panic mode”, I feel like I was going insane literally, it got so bad I had pretty bad derealization, my hands always sweat and I have extreme eye floaters, but can it cause other illness like schizophrenia, PTSD, psychosis or anything else?
WHY did i just cry?!?
I have noticed on just a regular day ill be watching tv you know like a sitcom something mushy will make me cry or my eyes will just tear up. I guess im stressed.. not any more than i normally am though and i remember times when everything was perfect and i was completely happy with my life and this happens. ok so i assume you are going to tell me i am hormonal even though pms shouldnt be happening for another two weeks. or you may tell me I am just an emotional person, which i do consider myself. I do cry more than most but i have trouble… no i dont have trouble i cant imagine how to express my emotions. more than one person have said i dont seem like i care. they say i never show emotion unless im angry or sad.. happiness i guess too im not sure how to explain it but i see what theyre talking about. i have feelings of compassion and care and every other feeling i just dont show it. the only thing i can think of is that i was put on adderall in grade 2 took as prescribed until grade 6 or 7 then abused it occasionally but still took it regularly. when i took it, it made me quiet. i would want to be around people but i just didnt have anything to say. it made me feel much smarter than them. not so much smarter but more aware and in tune with myself. it made nothing funny to me i was very cynical. i realized in grade 9 i hated adderall which is pretty much synthetic meth and stopped taking it. I dont write anymore because adderall is what made me write endlessly and made me want to draw more too. and i actually eat like im supposed to because on that i never got hungry until 6 or 7 so i ate once a day.
How can I go to the doctors without my mum finding out?
Okay, I’m 17, and for a whole year now, I’ve been self harming, considering suicide and having panic attacks. I’ve put up with it for so long and I don’t think I can cope anymore. I’m scared to leave my house, hate socialising and want to stay in and avoid people all day. I’ve attempted suicide in the past, consider it every single day and I feel like I’m stuck in a huge black hole with no way out. I recently confessed to a friend in my college class about all of this, and she said that this is not normal, and that I should seek help. She went through the exact same as me, and is now on anti-depressants and is now doing so much better. I want to go to my doctor about this, however my mum is very overprotective and wants to know where I’m going and why, every single time. She also thinks I’m an attention seeker and pretending to feel sad all the time just so I’ll be the centre of attention – which I’m not. I can’t speak to her about this because she either rolls her eyes and changes the subject or laughs at me whenever I bring up my feelings. I can’t cope with all this anymore and I need help. How can I go to the doctors without her knowing?
what was used to cure constipatio in the late 1800s? its now used to soak tired muscles in.?
Castor oil has been known to treat constipation, as well as a rub for aches and pain.
Here are two excerpts from Wikipedia:
1) “The use of cold pressed castor oil in folk medicine predates government regulations. Cold pressed castor oil is tasteless and odorless when pure. Uses include skin problems, burns, sunburns, skin disorders, skin cuts, and abrasions. Castor oil can also be used to draw out styes in the eye by pouring a small amount into the eye and allowing it to circulate around the inside of the eyelid. The oil is also used as a rub or pack for various ailments, including abdominal complaints, headaches, muscle pains, inflammatory conditions, skin eruptions, lesions, and sinusitis. A castor oil pack is made by soaking a piece of flannel in castor oil, then putting it on the area of complaint and placing a heat source, such as a hot water bottle, on top of it. This remedy was often suggested by the American Healing Psychic, Edgar Cayce, given in many healing readings in the early mid-1900s.”
2) “The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has categorized castor oil as “generally recognized as safe and effective” (GRASE) for over-the-counter use as a laxative, with its major site of action the small intestine”
What are ways to get rid of my depression and anxiety disorder symptoms?
- I can’t stop thinking negative thoughts all the time due to things my family have said
- My body always feels fatigued and hopeless
- I can’t enjoy the things that I used to think about (I always used to think of barriers between years, like 2003, barrier towards 2004, but now the thrill towards that is gone.) The thrill towards the shows that I used to watch is gone too.
- I can’t even make some of the characters as effective as they used to be in my head anymore.
- I don’t really sleep all that much. I just sort of rest and close my eyes.
- I seem to have a lump in my throat. Is that a sign?
Are these problems normal?
What are tips to get rid of my depression and anxiety disorder symptoms?
Is it just anxiety/depression? Help!?
I may have depression since I’ve lost interest in the stuff I used to like, I’m disconnected from my emotions and the worst part is… it’s making me lose feelings for my boyfriend. I’ve never felt this way before. I’m sure that I love my boyfriend with all my heart but ever since I lost the feeling of happiness, hopefulness and the like, things just haven’t been feeling the same with him.
But it’s not just my boyfriend, sometimes when I don’t think about him and instead I think about the things that aren’t related to him, it still feels the same. The things I like doing like dancing and playing flag football don’t feel the same anymore…It’s like I completely forgot how to feel about anything! And it’s really starting to scare me… It’s like I’m not myself…
This all started when I freaked out and panicked about getting hemorrhoids.. I thought it was something deadly and ‘serious’ (even if it wasn’t).. it was the first time I experienced it and I totally felt humiliated that I had it, shocked and utterly scared. I was asking myself over and over again, “Why me?” And I was just so sad..I let my spirits drop. During that time, I realized I couldn’t feel much for anything since I was just so tired to feel afraid and embarrassed… I freaked out even more when I couldn’t feel anything for my boyfriend. We were watching TV and things just didn’t feel the same all of a sudden…! I cried the whole night once I discovered that I might have lost feelings for him because I really couldn’t believe it. I love him so much, how can this be happening? I asked myself.. the next day, I didn’t feel so well from crying the whole night. My eyes were swollen and I had a slight fever. My nose was clogged and I had a bad cold… I couldn’t smell anything… that’s how it started..
I also feel like I’m living in a dream because I’ve never been un-emotional AT ALL. It’s like I don’t remember how I used to feel…
Sometimes I just worry even if I’m not thinking about anything, I just…worry and worry and there’s a tightening in my chest because I know something is just…not right or missing… Even if I’m NOT thinking of my boyfriend, I still feel worried that something is wrong because I’m not feeling right. Which leads me to think that it’s not our relationship that’s the problem we were so PERFECT before this sh*t started to happen and I’m so frustrated at myself!
People say I’m overthinking everything and I over analyze everything and I just need to calm down but I can’t calm down because it’s the LOVE OF MY LIFE I’m dealing with… I can’t lose it. I can’t lose him.
Also, just recently… I can’t seem to feel right when we become intimate. It’s like it’s so hard for me to concentrate on what I’m really feeling It’s scaring the shizz out of me that I’m not feeling like myself… I know this isn’t me! When we /do/ get intimate, my body feels it physically but emotionally… it’s just blank… PLEASE HELP ME. I’m really scared… I don’t want to lose him because of this!
I really want to gain my feelings back for him and to look forward to the things I used to look forward too. Please help me.. Will it ever come back? If I get better will I start loving and being happy again? Back to my normal self? I don’t want to break up with him just because I can’t feel anything it’s so unfair .. It’s hurting me so much… I can’t believe it when I get near him it’s like I’m so nervous because I don’t feel anything and I hate it…
I don’t want to leave him because what if I become fine again after a while? What if this /is/ actually all just a phase? Then at the end I would have just lost someone that made me the happiest person ever… I can’t risk that. I can’t… I would HATE to hurt him because of this because I care about him so much and all I want is for him to be happy. I’m so scared of losing him to whatever it is that I’m feeling right now!
And I want to be happy too… with him… please help me :’(
It’s been at least 3 weeks..
how long have you been on prozac and what have you been feeling since being on it?
don’t forget to mention side effects INFERTILITY EYE TWITCHING OR TONGUE DARTING
universal relationship or principle for truth seekers?
do you believe what you give out comes back to you
From my research and inspiration I have led to a concept called karma and this seems to be the only thing stopping us from achieving , health wealth and happiness
One of the most powerful allies to any person is to know about karma therapy for if you understand this you can even
Avoid getting health wealth happiness problems
Or if you currently have problems in those areas
Give you the most effective tool, which I have come across to help you alleviate them.
This is the tool
The value of giving
Putting something or some service into society is one of the most transforming tools with which we all benefit . The value of it is much higher than we can possibly know and it should be included as part of everyone’s health program. The giver may ask how will helping others help my health and me! That is a very good question, which is very worthy of a serious amount of thought. This touches on the concept which is called karma .
For if one truly wants to live with the great allies of Health, wealth, happiness, Love and all those effects which one values one should really understand this concept. It is the only thing, which explains the apparent randomness of the effects, which come upon people.
Effects are all aspects of health, Wealth, Richness, [note these two are separate] Happiness etc.
What is karma? Put simply it is the law of cause and effect. Or put as another way as you sow so shall you reap, or what goes around comes around. What do we mean by sowing? Simply every action or deed you do causes an effect and every thought causes an effect.
So if you have sown good deeds as in helping others, being of service, giving love and Kindness for lengthy periods of time you can expect to reap those seeds. Alternatively if we have sown other deeds and thoughts of a hurtful nature we can expect problems of one nature or another to beset us.
Edgar Cayce frequently mentioned in treating disease that we were working against karma and frequently told people that they would get well faster by helping others.
Ah you may say why is it that babies are sometimes born with so many impediments; they have not sown wrongful acts.
Yes they have not in this lifetime but what about their previous lives as in reincarnation. You may not wish to go into this subject at this time but there are millions of references to it, some in the bible and a lot of eastern religions, some people can actually remember their past lives.
There is now even past life regression therapy used in hypnosis to treat phobias, which are not connected with this lifetime.
What do you think these statements mean taken out of the bible
John5:5-14 When Jesus discovered a man who had been ill for thirty eight years .
On curing him Jesus said to the man.’Behold you have become well; do not sin anymore so that nothing worse may befall you’
This clearly indicates that by implication of his statement that this mans troubles were caused by breaking the law of karma.
Matthew 9;2 And behold they were bringing to him a paralytic, lying on a bed and Jesus seeing their faith said to the paralytic “Take courage, my son your sins are forgiven”
Mathew 12:36 And I say to you that every careless word that men shall speak, they shall render account for it in the day of judgment for by your words you shall be justified and by your words you shall be condemned.
Causes and effects met in the way of an eye for an eye – from Edgar cayce research
People Suffering Asthma Pressed the life out of others
People Suffering BlindnessBlinded captives with red hot irons
People Suffering ParalysisInjured others so they could barely walk
People Suffering Anaemia Shed others blood
Racial bigotAs a galley slave he was beaten to death by a negro master
People Suffering Cancer Laughed at Christians being torn apart by wild animals
People Suffering life as Paraplegic- As a Roman soldier – made light of others suffering
People Suffering Poverty Abused others-Impoverished others
Suffering Repeated disappointmentsDisappointed others
A woman who was wary of menDeserted by husband in the crusades
People Suffering ClaustrophobiaBuried alive
People Suffering Choking spasmsstrangled others to death
People Suffering Mental illness Practised Withcraft, Black magic
All illness suffered now is the result of sin sown earlier Edgar cayce says ,this applies to wealth and happiness as well apparently
Now we can meet our karma in two ways the first as in an eye for an eye, which means reaping in the exactly the same way as we have done. This is outlined above from the Edgar cayce research
We see this method being enacted each day mostly on the news, as calamity after calamity is portrayed to us .
it is very painful to see and to feel.
i agree with the karmic theory, hence try to do no harm to anyone consciously. There is enough to put right frm past lives/times already, and life is so short..
Medication not working.?
I am on lexapro 20 mg and xanax 1 mg 3 times daily. Lately i have been experiencing extreme abdominal distress tightning in my through indigestion and the psy sid it was all mostly anxiety related or exxagerated by anxiety. I can no longer watch tv. read a book, leave home, play a game. Anything that requires concentration leaves me shaking and in horrible pain that lasts days not hours. When my throat closes i am unable to do breathing exercises because it triggers astma so I have to suffer through it. I take my meds and they do nothing. The last rfew days I have been laid up with the abd. pain and nausea so I called my psy after hours and was told to take a larger dose of my meds wait a little while and go to the ER if I did not feel any better. I took 2 mg of Xanax. It was a horrid feeling. I still had the brain confusion of course but to boot i was drunk feeling and still had the anxious stomach feeeling as well. The normal dose does nothing for me. The pain in my muscles and stomache neck back even as far up as my eyes is unbearable. SO my question is this. If xanax does not work, what will. I am unable to leave home because of the sympotoms i cannot control. I cannot watch tv exciting movies, ride in a car, basically anything. I have used my inhaler to try to do breathing exercises during theses constant episodes but it makes it a bit worse at times too. It cuts my breathing for a second and the pain in my abs is forcing gas up. I feel horrible. OH and i did manage to make it to the ER or our local bandaid clinic it shouldn’t be called an ER and with no xrays of my abs no real tests they determined it was anxiety. I hate the drunk feeling of the 2mg dose of xanax even it did no good and neither odes the 1 mg. I stilll feel spacey and anxious and have the pains they are calling anxiety. Sorry this is so long I wanted to make sure I got all down i can remember. Even writing this i feeel that same feeling of anxiety/
Autism? Help please.?
I was reading this about autism:
and it says a woman wasn’t diagnosed with autism (actually PDD-NOS) until she was 37 and it’s sometimes missed in females.
And it says, “Girls with disorders on the autism spectrum are often perceived as just being shy, Buskirk says.”
So, how are girls diagnosed? Like the ones that have been diagnosed, how did you find out if people think you’re just a bit odd or shy?
Also, are the symptoms different in older girls, like teens, adults?
I don’t think i have it, although i do have some of the symptoms, such as toe-walking, lack of eye contact, sensitive to certain things – things ( like ‘flashes’ ) hurt my eyes easily, no friends my own age (i get on better with older people or foreign people), i don’t know how to start a conversation/ continue a conversation and a bunch of other things.
Although those could be for other reasons i think. People just think i’m ‘odd’ or ‘different’ or ‘very shy’.
Crazy? or haunted? if i dont find help im gonna kill myself! im a coward! too scared to live! so help:’(?
now before i explain id like to say 3 ppeople… my grandpas brother, my aunt, and cousin are skitzophrenic. ive been diagnosed with bipolar but am unmedicated. this is why im questioning my “hauntings”
a couple months ago i was driving back from taking my bf to work. i heard an unfamiliar voice say”its time to die” i was tired and thought i only heard it because i was tired. so i pushed it completly out of my mind.
a week ago i heard the voice again. it said my name in a very serious tone. i thought it was my bf so i said “what? he explains he didnt say anything. again i pushed it out of my mind because i didnt think anything of it. about 15 minutes later i felt a very distinct cold touch on my arm. the only way i can explain it is like ice. dry ice. thats when i felt something starring me down by my mirror… i was horrified. my bf turned on the lights and stayed up all night with me.
by the next morning i hadnt forgot, but was no longer scared so yes again i pushed it out of my mind.
tonight. i was going out to the garage. our door frame is broke so theres a crack about 2 or 3 inches thick where you can see into the garage. it felt like slow motion. my eyes zoomed in and a bright(almost blinding) green light flashed and then the light slowly died. i wouldve thought the light burnt out if it werent for the green explosion. so i started walking to my room and soon found myself in a sprint towards the door, came crashing in crying my eyes out and flipped the lights on. i had felt the presense again by the garage doorway. i finally calmed down with my bf and laid to sleep. my mirror was sending off the presence so i looked again and i could descrietly see it/him. hes red. and i freaked out. once i calmed down and looked again i had become black haired and pale. i was his slave.
hes watching me now from the roof of my room.
so… do i sound haunted or skitzo? please help:’( im ready to blow out my fucking brains from this misery…
