Any advice on chilling out?.. highly anxious person.

70 posts in this topic

I am trying to change my life for the better and have many job opportunities right in front of me, but find myself crippled by fear of failure and fear of panic attacks. The panic attacks I use to get would be followed by intense shaking and the job I do requires a steady hand and relaxed personality. For some reason I can't get over the overwhelming thought pattern that this MIGHT happen and therefore have put off pursuing these goals/opportunities.

 

I have been trying CBD oil but haven't noticed many differences.. I started at 3 mg twice a day, followed by 6 mg in the morning 3 at night.. which is the dosage I am at now..

 

I'd love to get Valium but doctors don't really prescribe that anymore.

 

Any advice is welcome..

Have you tried....  meditation?

 

If you have, then perhaps let meditation try you for a change.

A good first question to ask yourself when your mind starts with the overwhelming thought patterns is to ask yourself is "why?". Some examples:

-Why do these patterns occur?

-Why are they so overwhelming? 

-Why are they an established pattern?

-Why am I deciding now is the time to alleviate these overwhelming thought patterns?

Then it may help with asking yourself "what?":

-What can I do to prevent these patterns from occurring?

-What should I do if I become overwhelmed? 

-What kind of (constructive, creative, or productive) patterns could I establish? 

-What do I currently have in my abilities and/or capabilities to help alleviate the overwhelming thought patterns?

And you may either be able to answer them or unable to right away but as long as they are in your conscious or unconscious mind, you can digest them and let them work themselves out in a way. With repetition, you may eventually be able to change the thoughts away from overwhelming you and even have a positive, constructive use for them somewhere down the line.

It may also help to with just paying attention to the thoughts and noting when they become too overwhelming. You're own awareness of how, why, when, and what it is that elicits the patterns could be a great first push into getting more constructive thought patterns into place.

As soon as you see your mind is not in a place where you want it be, try and see it as an ephemeral, impermanent state of mind and that it too shall pass. Don't let the anxious thoughts linger and settle for very long and who knows what may happen.

I know this is much harder done than said, certainly takes some time and persistence, and is something that I myself am still improving on, but there is still hope! And any little step, such as a desire to change in the first place, will help immensely in your endeavour.

Apologies if this post itself is a bit overwhelming.

Meditation and weed and stuff is all great, but if it's really impacting your life in a major way you might want to consider getting on a medication. Maybe not valium, but there are a lot of good anti-anxiety drugs that may be able to help you function better. Im as anti-big pharma as anyone, but chemical imbalances are real. Does anxiety/panic attacks run in your family?  I have pretty bad anxiety and severe social anxiety and was recently prescribed clonazepam (generic klonopin - a benzo) and it makes a world of difference when I need to function socially. Just set up an appointment with your doctor and tell them the extent of your issues and they'll either give you a script or send you to a psychiatrist who will.

Hello friend.  Just want to say hello and give my two cents.  This is my first post, so hello to everyone else too.  First I want to say is don't put your faith in objects like drugs to help you 'chill out.'  Everyone is different and everyone reacts differently to these types of things... some of these drugs you put faith into may not work for you and put you in worse shape than you were before.  Also forget about shit like yoga, meditation, or any new age hippie snake oil bullshit.  What you need is a cliche.  Something that just shuts down your mind when it starts to race and gives you back control.

 

They're called thought stoppers.  For example.  If you're on the internet and trying to have an informed discussion about whatever.  Let's say you're trying to have a conversation about the increase in the incidence of sexual assault cases in Europe and its coincidence with the increase of immigration from the Middle East.  Someone will inevitably come into the conversation and derail it by labeling you as a 'racist' or a 'xenophobe', and they just shut it down and take it over.  The discussion is ruined.  

 

This kind of idea is horrible for discussion and the transference of ideas but when the only actor is you things like this can help immensely.  To go back to something you said that really stuck out for me:

 

"find myself crippled by fear of failure and fear of panic attacks. "

 

So if I understand you correctly, you are stricken by inaction due to fear.  Before I continue I want to let everyone know that my approach to your problem is informed by the philosophy I live my life by.  That philosophy is Spinozism.  If you wish to learn more simply look up Spinoza on wikipedia.  I treat this topic in depth in the hope that it in some way resonates with you.  People on this forum will probably come at you with a bit of a New Age/Eastern spin that I resent. Once you understand fear and the root of your panic, on an intellectual level, you will then be able to exact a bit of control.

 

Firstly, lets get to the bottom of fear.  What is fear?

 

**NOTE:  I have to take a break here.  I am high as I write this which is not at all out of the ordinary for me.  Before I started this I smoked half of a 0.4g joint... a modest amount of marijuana.  But I just got a knock on the door and something I ordered just arrived.  This package is an Extreme Q Vaporizer.  My old one broke in February 2015 and it has been almost 2 years since I last used a vaporizer.  I just want to let you know that from this point forward I am going to be uncharacteristically high and I may go overboard as I already was tending towards that before I even got this vape.  With that being said I am off to go to another plane of highness, I keep the above rather than scrap the whole of it for posterity's sake only**

 

Alrighty, I am back and ready to do this.  So where was I?  'lets get to the bottom of fear.  What is fear?'  . . . oh boy what have I gotten myself into.. Oh well lets get fucking to it.

 

Fear is an emotion and they can overpower our rational sides and make us act impulsively or instinctually.  All emotions fall into two ultimate flavors : pain and pleasure… good and bad.  It should be noted that good and bad are relative terms… what one derives pleasure from another may feel pain.  While the causes of pain and pleasure are dynamic, they are in themselves static.

 

An emotion is simply a state of mind that influences our actions.  When we are gripped by one we see the world through the lens of that emotion so to speak.  They're like filters that block out certain pieces of information.

 

Emotions are often thought of as a bad thing which is wrong, they can be good… even fear.  Knowing when to act on them is the ultimate aim however this is incredibly hard.  

 

To get back to your struggle with fear of failure and fear of panic attacks.  I'd like to treat the latter first as it is the easier to address and also because it makes me laugh.  I find it funny because panic is simply a step up from simple fear.  It is an amplification of fear if you will… you fear fear in itself.

 

As stated earlier all emotions fall into a form of pain or pleasure.  Pure pleasure is joy and pure pain is sadness or sorrow.  Fear is a manifestation of sadness.  However it is different from sadness in that it is coupled with the idea of some future event or object not immediately present… it is contingent, it is not based on certainty but rather probability.  As a consequence it is purely imaginary.  The opposite I should add, pleasure associated with an external object or event, is hope.  Both are useless emotions in that they concern themselves with events not present.

 

While ultimately useless these emotions can be good or bad.  They're good or bad until they aren't.... they're useless when you divorce yourself from the notion of time… but this is incredibly hard put into words and the best explanation I can give would be Plato’s parable of the cave.  Let’s dial it way back.  Why are we doing this?  Why do we do anything at all?

 

Why do we act?  We all act to preserve our existence.  Self preservation is our prime directive.  When we act we act to simply keep existing.  Any thing that increases our ability to act is good and anything that decreases this ability is bad.  To completely lose the capacity to act is to die… to completely gain the ability to act is divine … and impossible as we are all going to die.

 

We are all going to die… when you take a step back and look at this it seems I am consequently saying our existence is evil as we do not have the ability to exist completely.  As humans we are bound in time… we have a beginning and an end.  Our existence does seem evil but this is because of our bondage to the concept of time.  We don't have the ability to see existence for what it's worth… however we do catch glimpses… which is hard to explain.

 

But I digress… I'm going deep.  Lets get back to your fear of failure and see how it connects with our prime directive: the constant striving for self preservation.  The fear of failure is a primal fear as it is intimately tied to the idea of self preservation.

 

If you're following me you’ll realize I am saying we act out of our need to keep existing.  The more complete we are in our ability to act the better we are.  Success increases our ability to act… failure decreases it.

 

What I mean by this is this:  imagine there is a promotion we want at work and we are successful in our endeavor to get this promotion.  Our capacity to act is increased in numerous ways.  We get authority which gives us influence and we get more money which gives us the ability to do more things.  It feels good.

 

Of course we are not successful in our endeavor to get this promotion… at least not in the present.  However the very idea of this future success drives us to act towards it because we are acutely aware of its ability to make our lives better… this is called hope.  However the inverse, fear, can also drive our ability to act.  The fear of not getting this promotion can cripple some as I said earlier we are acutely aware of the consequences of the promotion.  Fear is stronger than hope because we are acutely aware of failure.  We have experienced failure more than success… it seems more probable because that is what experience has showed us.

 

I could go on and on about this.  The truth is this.  We are going to die.  We are ultimately going to fail.  But we aren't dead yet so why dwell on it.  You haven't failed yet… why dwell on it?  What good does thinking about it do?  If our failure is predetermined by nature why do we let it have any influence on us at all?

 

Of course this is easier said than done.  Even when we do behold the divine and free ourselves from the bounds of time fear eventually comes back… it’s like an astronaut; it comes back but it’s never the same.  Our failure is assured.  This fear may turn to panic and we need to get a hold on that before it consumes us.  So how do we do this?

 

Some people recommend external remedies… you know the consumption of drugs or art.  These people are lazy.  Others recommend internal remedies… creativity, introspection, philosophy or ways of thinking… I am a part of this group.  But these people are unrealistic or impractical.  They usually hold esoteric views and try to impose them on novices and it just doesn't help.  As I said earlier it is like Plato’s parable of the cave… they have seen a beautiful world and try to impose this world view on people who simply do not have the ability to comprehend it… not because they lack the ability to but simply because they haven't had the same experiences.

 

That is why I take this long-winded approach to helping you with your fear… I'm not trying to condescend you but rather get to the root of fear because once you understand it you can make a real effort to reign it in.  

 

Despite all this I too suffer from fear and in the past I used to even have panic attacks.  My fear is different than yours in that my fears stem from the consequences of my actions rather than the implications of future actions.  This is just a really high brow way to say I struggle with depression where as you struggle with anxiety.

 

Just to give you an example of what I mean.  I took a day off work today because I was awaiting a particularly important package… a vaporizer… I took a day off to live a day of excess.  I'm not scared of what I've done but rather it's consequences.  I know when I go into work tomorrow someone is going to say something about my absence and as a result I'm just going to dwell on how I'm going to handle this inevitable interaction.  What pisses me off about this though is the flipside.  I'm going to dwell on this interaction but there is a very real possibility no one says anything to me at all and I'd have wasted all this time thinking about something that never even transpires… after writing it out it appears I may have a bit of social anxiety… but I digress.

 

How did I deal with this fear?  Distraction via creativity… just look at this post I've written out.  I'm just delaying the inevitable by repeating to myself to think about my response to this potential interaction until my commute to work on Saturday.  To avert panic I have a mantra I say to myself.  Christians may recognize this mantra as a prayer and while I'm not religious and couldnt give a fuck about God this prayer has none the less helped calm me down:  God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change the courage to change the things I can and the wisdom to know the difference.

 

I suggest finding one of your own… any cliche truism that has given you a eureka moment… one that just stopped you in your tracks deaf with awe… be it a quote a prayer or a proverb… anything … and it could be more than one too.  When you feel the rumblings of fear come on repeat this to yourself and let it deflate you.

 

And if this mantra of yours fails to stop the fear and panic starts to manifest then remove yourself from the situation and breathe!!  You are now manually breathing… feel that?  That feeling of taking manual control of an automated biological process?  Take it for a spin... because this mechanism is the same you need to get ahead of your emotions… it is the key to everything.

 

And finally.  If this all fails … and it certainly can.  Do not fight a fit of pure emotion or passion… it will destroy you.  Face it like Obiwan faced Vader… let it consume you so it can run its course.  The more you resist the more you will struggle.  It's like when you're at the beach and get taken over by a huge wave… that feeling of helplessness where you're just along for the ride… submit… breathe.  Just remember to breathe.


PS: Don’t do fucking marijuana or its derivatives if you have a fear of panic attacks… that’s like using gasoline to try and put out a fire.  Like what the fuck?

Do you actually do this?  If so, props dude.

I've done hot yoga three times in my life and every single time afterwards, I thought to myself, "If I could do this three times a week. 90% of my problems would melt away."  The whole rest of the day, when I did the hot yoga, I was a fucking beacon of peace and tranquility.  And it's one of those things where, when you actually do it, it becomes so obvious that this is the right thing to do.  There are no more doubts about if yoga works, etc.  It is just so blatantly obvious that it does work, and that it is beneficial.  

I second this recommendation.  When you actually get to the point where you can do slow, deep, mindful, belly breaths during the entire session, you will be able to conquer any anxiety that comes your way.  You will become a master at directing your focus towards something that your "monkey brain" desperately doesn't want to focus on.

OP, please consider ehhrrwal's recommendation.  Before you go ingesting chemicals and altering your brain chemistry, just try some fucking hot yoga.  If it doesn't work, you can say fuck Valentine M. Smith and then go do whatever else it was you were gonna do.  But please, give it a try.

I've been at my current dead end job partly because of anxiety...job interviews have put me into panic mode on numerous occasions and I've fucked some up because of it. Deep down I know I should just man the fuck up and send applications out and get practice interviewing...that's probably the most efficient way to overcome it.

To battle my general anxiety day to day I've been smoking weed, taking cold showers, started the Wim Hof breathing technique, and meditating with an app called Calm...so far I definitely think meditating is the best treatment, and that app helps me stay consistent. I feel really good mentally after taking a really cold shower, and in a milder way after Wim Hof breathing.

Not sure whether or not weed is that beneficial...maybe I could do without it but I don't think it's had much of a detrimental effect on me. But I know the more I use it, the more likely I'll have to use synthetic piss to pass the preemployment screening. That'll be fun I'm sure...:|

Anyway, I feel you man. Try the Calm app.

@calipornia,

by jove sir!  the problem is preconception!  but don't listen to the speaker!  that is authority, and authority only moves in the absence of logic.  so find out for yourself sir! find out if your problem is not preconception!

Do you consume caffeine or any stimulants at all?

My chill appears to be greater the less stims I consume.

Even just switching to green tea from coffee seems to provide a more balanced and grounded form of energy for me.

I also take magnesium glycinate daily. It helps me sleep better and will tend to calm me if I'm feeling particularly stressed.

Hoping for goodness and calm in your being.

pharmaceutical drugs will likely put you in a bigger hole. many will suggest meditation, yet many find it frustrating and give up quickly.

therefore, I suggest EFT.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Emotional_Freedom_Techniques

it can be used for many things, including anxiety.

please try this. rate your anxiety 1 - 10 before you tap, and rate it afterwards. you may notice an immediate effect.

LOVE & PEACE

@DouglasJHermington,

by jove sir!  that is absurd!  anxiety is thought fundamentally, not a DSM term.   now sir the only thing worth tapping is some hott puss and a keg.  meditation outside of action, is isolation.  tapping while refurbishing the self image is still refurbishing the self image.  rationalization, justification, condemnation, identification, it's all the same mechanically sir.  it is the self image trying to reestablish itself.  its natural cessation is bliss.  

you see sirs, what this man is, is the battling of internal opposites.  conflicting images.  that is, he has a certain image of himself.  he is anxious, unconfident, etc.  he determines that he is thus not virtuous and so must become, and so he taps himself like a retard while rationalizing/justifying/identifying/condemning and the rest of it.  this is not intelligence, don't be fooled.  this is absurd.  tap some puss sirs, not your face.

jeez,

 

already some negativity in response. not surprised, but I thought this was the DTFH forum, where we try to keep an open-mind about things? 

I'm not trying to be rude, but you sound very self-righteous, and you kind of come of as trying to be some sort of intellectual or something. 

what happens if it has a placebo effect and actually works for him? Anyway, there are PLENTY of reputed scientists who support this technique. I'm more than happy to list the names if you wish. And I bet they are more qualified than you or I.

if it doesn't work for him, that is a shame. if it does, great! I don't think your high-horse ramblings are going to serve him, it sounds like you're just trying to serve yourself.

why does everything have to be "intelligent" ? What the hell does that even mean? What is intelligence? Because I don't think there is any definitive study on what it actually is. And what does intelligence have to do with spirituality? 

Once again, DTFH forum should be a place for open thought, not some meaningless, pseudo-intellectual ramblings. 

If he taps and it doesn't work, what is the worst outcome? He lost 5 minutes of his time?

bottom line is I know that this technique has worked for myself and others. Stop being greedy and believing that your way of thinking is the only right way to think.

And tapping a keg? Alcohol? Seriously?

sir, negative is a relative approximation, not reality.  what the speaker put was neither negative nor positive until contrasted against preconception.  

 
I'm not trying to be rude, but you sound very self-righteous, and you kind of come of as trying to be some sort of intellectual or something. 
now sir, the speaker is not self righteous, that is absurd.  to isolate the self with a single term, a label, and then to perceive through the veil of that image?  surely you see the absurdity sir.  surely you see the skewing of what is.  put differently, the speaker is not self righteous, that is instead the assertion of a relative approximation and not truth, actuality, god, intelligence, meditation, to the speaker they are sides of the same medal.  the speaker is the reverberation of experience 

 
what happens if it has a placebo effect and actually works for him? Anyway, there are PLENTY of reputed scientists who support this technique. I'm more than happy to list the names if you wish. And I bet they are more qualified than you or I.

what signifies qualification to you sir?  hmm?  a title?  a label?  is that it?  authority?  does an authoritative image authenticate an assertion?   surely it does not.  so the speaker is not interested in the assertions of scientists.  the speaker only follows logic sir, not authority.  do see the significance of this.  

if it doesn't work for him, that is a shame. if it does, great! I don't think your high-horse ramblings are going to serve him, it sounds like you're just trying to serve yourself.

that is the movement of the self isn't it sir?  to reverberate the past.  and that is the speaker isn't it sir?  reverberating KRISHNAMURTI and tales of CACTUS to the sirs.  and there is @DouglasJHermingtonreverberating face tapping, and self approximation and such.  that's it sir!  fundamentally, we are the same.  mechanically.   

why does everything have to be "intelligent" ? What the hell does that even mean? What is intelligence? Because I don't think there is any definitive study on what it actually is. And what does intelligence have to do with spirituality? 

sir when the speaker talks about intelligence he is not using the word as a relative approximation that would be applied to the self or to another.  the speaker is not asserting that someone is intelligent relative to another.  do appreciate the distinction.  the speaker is rather referring to intelligence the mechanism, which is the absence of preconception.  the negation of preconception is the discernment of the self and so reality.  but, go into it sir and find out if it is true.  

Once again, DTFH forum should be a place for open thought, not some meaningless, pseudo-intellectual ramblings. 

If he taps and it doesn't work, what is the worst outcome? He lost 5 minutes of his time?

bottom line is I know that this technique has worked for myself and others. Stop being greedy and believing that your way of thinking is the only right way to think.
sir you are missing the whole essence of what he speaker is presenting.  you must go slowly.  this is not an attack on you sir, the speaker is just presenting an opposing idea.  there is no need for anger or frustration.  we are equals sir.  what divides us is only the concepts we present.  but let's see if we can find communion.  

the problem is not the tapping but rather the self approximation.  the gentleman in the video taps to refurbish his self image.  that is, he is actively working to change it.  sir, the moment one adopts the concept that they need to become/change there is then insufficiency.  the self is sir.  but it is not the thing you define it as.  that is, when there is not the lingering overlay of the self image there is bliss, awareness, quietude, intelligence etc.  do you see sir?  


And tapping a keg? Alcohol? Seriously?

now we have seen the result of condemnation in the mantra of the tap tap man.  there is condemnation and so there is the need to refurbish the self image through mantra.  the speaker is not saying this will not result in a relatively better mindspace, surely it will shine in comparison to the depths of condemnation,  what the speaker is saying is that the whole process is circular and avoidable.  that is, the cure and the disease are both measures of self approximation.  and when the futility of self definition is discerned there is psychological freedom.  bliss sir. and so there is no need to tap the face like a retard.

you sound pretty obsessed with cactuses and whatever spiritual leader you're rambling on about. I'm sure that will come to pass in your life too. You talk in loops and circles, and I seriously doubt you are helping the original poster or anyone else in this thread. 

would you mind not calling everyone who doesn't follow your train of thought in regards to EFT a "retard"?

I agree that labels and such do not necessarily mean more qualified, so maybe you'd like to list what makes you so well versed on the topic?

I'm not sure what is the point in even responding to you, as you are surely correct and all-knowing.

and can you please stop referring to me as sir? i might be a transexual-robot plooker.

and could you please lower yourself to my level, and attempt to communicate to me in plainer English? I am not on your level clearly. I have so much to learn. Great leader, word-word man.
 

you seem to realize that your ramblings are frustrating, so perhaps you should do something about it if you really care about helping people?

 

seriously though, try helping people instead of serving your own act. work on your communication skills in regards to communicating with us serfs.

you're gonna grow out of this shit eventually bro. 
 

 

oh and if you'd love to communicate by skype that would be great. I'd love to hear this shit audibly.
