How to cure anxiety forever

Common Questions and Answers about How to cure anxiety forever


Avatar m tn Some people think it's because mental illness is recurring and we don't know how to cure it or what causes it, others think it's the medications themselves causing permanent dependence. I personally think people are affected differently. I also don't think the worst thing in the world is if you have to take it forever as long as the side effects aren't unmanageable -- ssris aren't particularly liver toxic so they won't kill you.
Avatar f tn Does this last forever? What can I do to cure it? I have no previous history of mental illness. I also am quite chubby 66kgs so could it be the effects of the THC in my system? as I said i feel better than when it started but i am losing hope.
Avatar f tn There is a form of therapy called CBT that is the most recommended for anxiety problems. It doesn't go into why you got anxiety, it just tries to teach you how to not think anxious thoughts anymore. It requires a lot of work. It usually fails to work. But when it does work, you're better, you don't need the drugs anymore. Drugs never cure anything with mental illness because science hasn't yet figure out why it exists. With time we can only hope we will solve this one.
780665 tn?1239030149 mine just come out of the blue and are impossible to predict. Every story I read seems to be 'ive been suffering from pvcs, blah blah, for past 20 years', 'ectopics all my life' etc. I never hear of anyone saying 'ye i've been getting these non-stop for years and they just suddenly stopped.
333612 tn?1302886990 Like I said-I got comfortable. All of us, forever have to be vigilant. There is no 'cure' for our disease. We have to live with it forever. Have you found another job? Nurses are needed everywhere!! You will bounce back. I remember the first day you wrote on medhelp and I knew you where serious and I wanted to help. I guess it's my turn to reach out and ask you for help in return. We'll make it together. write me back-I've missed you!!
Avatar f tn The answer to that is yes, unfortunately that's exactly how I felt before I knew I had to start treatment. That's what is called an anxiety attack where you need to lay down and that still doesn't make it all better. Anxiety and depression cause these symptoms to your body and mind.
Avatar m tn It took many years for me to admit to myself this is something I have, I think to have hope at this point would be depressing. Over the past 4 years I have tried all meds with no resolution to my pain. The only thing that works for me is Lortab and Soma but even then I can feel my brain being "tricked" into believing my pain is not as severe. Antidepressants help if you can find the right one which I have not been able to do or afford.
Avatar m tn I stated from scratch to recover. I sampled the lucinda basset program and read as much as I could to learn HOW anxiety works. When you are you get educated alot of the fear goes away even if the feelings are the same because you are scare of what you dont understand .Fear of the unknown and the "what if's" are fuel for the fire. ( what if its a heartattack, brain tumor, MS and on and on had em all went to the doc , visted Dr Google, not a good idea BTW).
Avatar n tn How long do I have to wait for the treatments to work. Am I just expecting it to cure the yeast infection too soon? Is this something that takes time to heal? It's just really irritating. It's been almost 2 months and I would like it to go away. Can anyone give me some insights? Also, I got to the gym alot and wait to shower and change out of my gym clothes until I get home.
Avatar f tn First, there is no proven link between serotonin and depression. What is known is that altering how your body utilizes serotonin can make an anxious or depressed person feel less so, but that doesn't do anything to cure the disorder. So no, nobody "has" to take an ssri to combat depression, and many antidepressants don't target serotonin or target it exclusively. Second, normal is a relative term.
1243620 tn?1274794297 Have any of you found a great way to cure/combat anxiety without pharmaceuticals?
Avatar f tn Are they willing and open to go to counseling with him? Cutting him off will not cure his depression, but make it worse. He needs family support. Maybe if the whole family went to counseling with him? But by him laying around, not working, letting them support him, that is not helping him either. He needs a job so he will feel he is making a difference and give him some confidence in himself. If he cannot find a job maybe he could volunteer helping others.
Avatar f tn during the few months I was ok I promised myself that I'd never let depression come back to me, I'd rather die. But it's back and I don't know how to deal with it. I refuse to take antidepressants because I have heard all sort of horrible stories about them and I don't want to make matters worse by affecting the chemicals in my brain. I can't afford to do that. I'm being treated with psychotherapy but it doesn't help me at all...
Avatar m tn Medication is definitely not a cure all, and while it has helped me, the most important thing you can do in my opinion is to confront this through therapy by learning about the root causes of your anxiety and how to successfully deal with it in the long term.
Avatar m tn Trying to accept that I will have Chiari forever but in the meantime I would like to know what helps? Massage therapy, acupuncture, exercises, medication, meditation, puzzles? Anxiety/depression meds? Anything??? I'm desperate! I'll try anything.
Avatar m tn Here is a good video to watch and it talks about yeast and how it immigrates to other parts of the body. It's about 20 minutes long but its going to cost you is your time. wwwdotyoutubedotcom/watch?
Avatar f tn It's going to be tough to build trust. My daughter is an addict, and it took me a long time to trust her, and she's in the middle of a relapse right now after over 9 years clean. I'm a recovering addict myself. I had a relapse after 27 years of being clean. So, it can happen. But I know plenty of people in AA and NA who have stopped and never picked up again. It depends on the strength of their recovery. Recovery means change. If us addicts don't change, nothing changes.
Avatar m tn An Eight-Step Program for Getting Well" by Robert L. DuPont, M.D., and this book has put a lot of what I feel into perspective. I believe since I've started reading, without even having started the eight-step program, I've stopped fighting the anxiety as much. That's what it's going to take to be able to cope I believe. You have to stop fighting it, and approach it face to face eventually. You have to recognize that the anxiety and symptoms are terrible...
497348 tn?1283439666 If it doesn't, you will have/learned the tools that will help you cope with it and if it goes away and comes back years later, again, because you've been through it once before, you will have the tools in place and there will be new methods for you to get help. Think for now how to get a handle on this and that will help take care of any future problem in this area.
1771101 tn?1314107109 Medicine however is not a cure you mentioned that you were a widow so maybe you should see a psychologist to help you because I can't even imagine what you are going through specially with 4 kids! God bless and I hope you feel better. Just be patient I know it feels horrible but you will feel better, it's just a matter of time.
456874 tn?1218143341 you've got to testify in court against a co-worker friend to whom you had always promised complete secrecy and trust. Your heart pounds, you are sweaty -the whole deal. You are ANXIOUS. Pick whatever scenario scares the dickens out of you. You get the idea. But in THESE cases, the cause is clear, you see the connection between the emotional challenge and your anxious reaction. Going with our courtroom drama, what do you DO about the anxiety?
Avatar f tn Does anyone know if this is deffinatly anxiety?? If so any help how to get through this would realy help, i feel like i cant cope no more with this it is ruining my life. Am i going to be like this forever?
7603392 tn?1393176350 It's a therapy method that is a bit different from the traditional talk therapy. CBT is very helpful for anxiety sufferers. You will learn coping methods, and how to gain control of those "what if" thoughts. The other thing that's important to do is to make a concerted effort to stop ruminating about the thoughts that are scaring you. I cannot stress enough HOW helpful it is to keep yourself distracted and engaged in life.
Avatar m tn It is simply just unfortunate how strong my phobia is that i see every form of touch in a massage as a route to hiv infection.
784382 tn?1376934640 Vertigo was a prevalent symptom for me when I first started having panic and anxiety symptoms... I know how troubling it is and how difficult it is to describe to other people in a way that they can understand. The doctor told me the same thing - ears were full and it would go away over time - and said it was the barometric pressure changes (go figure). I felt like I was going up and down in an elevator all the time and wasn't walking straight.
758077 tn?1282599161 I would have thought the anxiety would have gone by now. I know sleep will help, but I need to get rid of the anxiety first.
Avatar m tn I started with anxiety when my older brother wanted to see how stoned he could get his 9 year old sister. It turned into a game for a few years, him and his friends thought it was cool to that they were getting me stoned, not knowing that they pushed me into panic attacks each time they did. My connection to driving started when I was 19. I drove from TN to IN and had a full blown attack in a middle of a bridge in Louisville.
Avatar f tn I don't know how to deal with my family. It is most likely that we are al infected since birth. Now, how come a virus can get active?? are there any suggestion to keep this virus inactive ???... any good words are welcome. I need support. I;m so stress out. I can not talked to my friends and I'm having depression.
Avatar m tn Try the muscle relaxants(see if they work), learn to control anxiety and read up on how to combat/cure gastritis, once you have that protective layer on your stomach wall again, the anxiety signals and horrible rising feelings into your chest will go.
Avatar f tn the anxiety is the worse, i'm alone today for the first time and i feel unable to cope. i feel weak, i can't eat...i puke. i have to get my son to school but how when i feel like i'm going to die?
