Common or general Anxiety resulting from prolonged Stress, a startling occurrence, or anxious thoughts is not different from the more pronounced Types of Anxiety such as Social Anxiety Disorder in symptoms. Common Anxiety’s treatment stages are different though; moreover, its cure rate can be higher!
Many Anxiety sufferers live most of their lives only hearing they must “Treat the Symptoms” of Common or General Anxiety! When with a small amount of help and work a cure is possible.
Barry Joe McDonagh
About two years ago I signed up for emails from the International Panic Attack Coach Barry Joe McDonagh. From the first, I read them diligently, saw their value, and how wise the words in them were!
Barry understood the anxious thoughts constantly attacking my mind! I had tried to tell therapists, even psychologists before about these messages. Never had I been given an answer before! Please read the Article by Barry on this subject more than once, in fact, take notes!
I will be offering more Articles by Barry Joe McDonagh for I know you will appreciate them.
Anxiety presents symptoms and you then decide how to treat the symptoms.
In the beginning, you don’t have a diagnosis so you don’t know which Type of Anxiety you have. In fact, most people for a long time are in denial. Not accepting they have Anxiety, some people simply claim nerves or stress!
Nerves, Stress or Anxiety
With nerves, stress, and any Type of Anxiety you treat the symptoms. First, seek to cease the cause of any kind of stress you can as soon as possible! If the stress is your mate, child, or parent, then ceasing the cause of your symptoms is not likely!
Next, begin with simple, deep-breathing exercises to restore calm.
If trying to breath differently, makes you more upset, breath how you please! Some people get stopped right here by not being able to do breathing exercises. And, it is not important! If something else works for you, that’s well and good.😊
Try a drink of water. The simple act of taking a drink of water can calm us. Sometimes we miss the simple cures or helps because we overlook them.
Act of Grounding
Connect with your five senses and ground yourself to the here and now. You want what is, not what has been, or what might be!
First, what do you hear? People…Cars…Talking…I hear a loud television! Second, what do you smell? Something good…Been raining, I smell my little wet dog!
Third, what taste do you have in your mouth? Have you eaten recently? What do you taste? Fourth, what do you see nearby you? Someone Special…A bright color…a cat’s face? Fifth, What are you touching or what touches you?
When you concentrate on the present, the “what ifs” of later, and “what happened before”, are not in charge. The future and the past will part for the present!
The act of focusing on the present with your five senses is an amazing Grounding Tool that serves as a valuable therapy for Common or General Anxiety, Social Anxiety Disorder, and other Types of Anxiety.
Today is the sixth day of full withdrawals and I am wondering, are opioid withdrawals over? Yesterday was a better day than the day before.
Are Opioids Withdrawals Over? Sixth Day
Today is the Sixth Day of Full Withdrawals and I am wondering are opioid withdrawals over? Yesterday was a better day than the day before, and I felt like writing and thinking. The amazing thing is sleeping all night for the first time in many years, in fact, I don’t remember when?
I did not waken in terrible pain, and thank God that has not happened since I started taking the CBD oil! So, I am going to stay thrilled with CBD! There are no cravings for the opioid Oxycodone, and the physical symptoms of my body throwing off the drug are mild and controllable.
I have helped my body and CBD oil control the symptoms with what works for me under stressful conditions. I considered the flu-like symptoms though they were moderate like they were the real flu and took over the counter flu, fever, and diarrhea medications. The ones that I usually took with my prescribed medications.
Craving the Opioid or the Narcotic
Lest you think I don’t know what craving is or am lying to you about not craving the opioid or narcotic, I was on them both for twenty-eight years and depended on them like life’s breath! I became so completely done with what I needed so seriously depending on a physician’s decision to say “yes” or “no” with his pen that I had enough!
February 25, 2018, was the last day I took Diazepam (Valium), forever, God willing! I don’t ever want to go back on them, they are so seductive and quickly addictive. That has been five months! I’m here to tell you those first two months were long months.
Mentally, I still have thought flashes when I think “Now, would be a good time for a Diazepam!” But I quickly shove it aside with a “You are doing just fine, hang in there!” and I do okay!
With my pain and anxiety like it is or less, I am so completely thankful for what CBD has done for me already, and what it is doing!
Addicted and Craving Nicotone
I want to write and I can’t because I have to get up and go to the computer to put my e-cigarette batteries on to charge. That is what a craving does! It interferes in all aspects of your life! I know because I have been smoking cigarettes since the age of thirteen. Since I didn’t quit until the age of sixty-three, that is a lot of years of smoking!
In the past, I have done all kinds of horrible things with my cigarettes! I have accidentally burnt my children with them! Do you know what that will do to a child and mother? Always, I made sure I had cigarette money, before medicine! Thank God, I never had to choose where my children’s food was concerned!
Smoking – Vaporing e-Cigarettes?
So now for four years, I have been smoking e-cigs (and my Granddaughter says vaporing), and it is not as satisfying as the real thing, but they have enough nicotine. I do not burn anything and there are no ashes or second-hand smoke. All to the good!
Once my best friend’s daughter had to go to a rehab facility for helping her come off of some drugs and they made cigarettes one of her drugs. She was able in a month’s stay to take care of all of her drugs except the cigarettes.
Paula was told cigarettes were on the same addictive level as heroin and as hard to kick! I believe every bit of that! I have walked miles to have a cigarette, and in my fifty-one years of smoking, did many things I am not too proud to tell.
Opioid Addiction Anxiety or SAD
For years I could have been having Opioid Addiction Anxiety or Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD), and, I don’t know how much of which! Searching for opioid withdrawal symptoms I found some symptoms for long-term opioid use. The first one on the list was severe anxiety, and the second was diarrhea!
Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) Diagnosed Age 4
When I began medication at the age of thirty-nine, my anxiety was severe. Social Anxiety Disorder from the age of four was diagnosed. I have clear of recollections of “Show & Tell” in Nursery School, wherein I could not participate, and stand in front of all of those other children and show my toy. I had my first anxiety attack and was physically sick, so my teacher took me outside.
If your child gives you reason to think they are coping with some form of anxiety problem, by all means, help them. Start with your pediatrician, or if you don’t use one, your family doctor. Anxiety can begin in the cradle for the child can be born with Social Anxiety Disorder.
Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD)
Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD) is a form of Autism in most cases and the child is born with SAD as they are born Autistic. So much work is being done today with Autistic patients including SAD patients, physicians are learning new characteristics every day.
I and my three sisters have Social Anxiety Disorder, and now, my granddaughter was born autistic. Three of us had childhoods where we plainly showed forth signs of SAD for diagnosis. Of course, we were not diagnosed in the 1950’s and 1960’s.
Severe Social Anxiety Disorder
I can only clearly write of my own experience so that is what I shall do. There is a clear striving for love with a lack of ability to accept affection and believe they are loved! You will see a seeking of acceptance and approval without the ability to accept praise or be the center of attention graciously. They are embarrassed.
For a SAD baby a little noise can become too much input to handle. They can’t process it and will shut down and sleep through it, then finding that impossible, will cry and cry their way through it. Stop the input. Start it back, one thing at a time.
Instrumental music with few instruments is a good choice for nap time. Mother, Father, or another person well-known to the child, softly touching their back is a good thing. Try building clean, soft patterns to which the child will become accustomed.
Afternoon Seventh Day Full Withdrawals
This post has a lot of stuff in it! I started it on the morning of the Sixth Day of Full Withdrawals from Oxycodone. I am finishing it in the afternoon of the Seventh Day of Full Withdrawals and my internet has been down for two days.
Having had no one to talk to about withdrawals, medications, and duration of symptoms, I feel very alone. I am not alone although I am wishing for people informed about withdrawals to talk to now. If my internet comes back up I can contact my internet doctor. It’s time to talk to people about how the CBD oil is helping me and how it helped them.
Lyrica and CBD Oil
Mestinon is my medication for Myasthenia Gravis, and I take Lyrica for the severe Fibromyalgia nerve pain and neuropathy. Now Lyrica and CBD oil are my basic medications for pain, because the only time I was out of them, I suffered terribly.
CBD oil has done so many good things for me, out of all of them keeping the intense pain out of my first thoughts of the morning is why CBD is the most treasured! Second, is that I can see clearly instead of double-vision which made it difficult to read and write.
Myasthenia Gravis and Opioid Withdrawals
There is a muscle connecting your eyes that allows them to synchronize and focus for you. With Myasthenia Gravis this muscle loosens and you lose focus and see double.
Some may have put the clearing of vision first, but they are not aware of the degree of pain I dealt with on a daily basis. If I overslept a six-hour medication time I woke in bone-searing pain that had me in tears. CBD oil drops are making life without pain and opioids possible!
CBD BioCare.com Oil is a wonderful product and I would like to present it to you! Click Herehttps://cbdbiocare.com/janice/
Thank you for reading along with me! Please Leave me a Comment!
I am not a medical professional and I do not advise anyone to do more than read along with me for informational purposes as I share with you parts of my life story. Please check with your chosen health provider before you start or stop any medication.
There is a wonderful thing that is available to us now, and I really don’t know how long it has been there, legal and for sale. But I wish I had found out about it sooner for it is proving to be a real blessing to me.
First of all, it is from the cannabinoid plant family, and if you didn’t get that, it is cannabis. That’s right, the same plant from which we get marijuana!
The cannabis plant family gives us TCA from which we get marijuana, which is inhaled by someone who wants to get high. It is illegal in many states and countries. This is also medication for many people in several states in the U.S. by prescription for a variety of illnesses.
Now they have legalized and processed a form of CBD as a medication, it is called Epilolex and is for epilepsy.
The cannabis plant also gives us CBD from which we get cannabidiol oil, which is legal and for sale online and in some stores, in all fifty states, and many countries. When I discovered CBD Oil, I studied it. Then I studied the companies that presented themselves to me. I found CBDBioCare.com to be the company I wanted to promote as an affiliate. So I purchased some oil for myself tried it and began selling it online.
Here is where I tell you the best thing to do is check with your chosen healthcare provider before you take a natural herbal remedy.
Severe Withdrawal From Opioid Use
I was taking the pain medication and I couldn’t tell about the relief from pain. I had to wait, I could take the time to let the pain medication leave my system, and then take it and see what happened? And I can not take the pain medication from my system all at once for it is an opioid and it would cause some disasters in my body that I have been informed about.
The withdrawal side effects of opioids are severe anxiety, nausea, diarrhea, other flu-like symptoms, and I can’t remember all that is supposed to happen! For this reason, I must slowly withdraw from it. I am hoping to use the full spectrum CBD oil to withdraw from the opioid, and I am still in this process for it takes a couple of months to do it without suffering.
I am hoping the CBD will help me not have the severe withdrawal symptoms. Here again, I must tell you what works for me may not work for you and you have to check with your own healthcare provider about what you do and do not take.
Severe Anxiety From The Opioid Use-CBD Is Needed
In researching what may happen when I stop taking the opioid pain medication, I was informed severe anxiety is a symptom of opioid use! Thus, the anxiety I have been taking medication for, that I had to begin with, has been complicated by the opioid use! The anxiety that has become steadily worse through the years has been complicated by the pain medication I thought was safe for me.
Off One Narcotic – Diazepam
This is June and in February I took myself off of Diazepam, which for those of you who don’t know, that is Valium. It has not been easy, it was a battle, and not one of my doctors offered to help me since it was my decision. Diazepam is the safest, most commonly prescribed drug for anxiety. Valium was the safest and most commonly prescribed drug for anxiety in 1990 when it was prescribed for me, and I think it still is today, but read on!
Diazepam should only be prescribed for short-term use or for where it doesn’t matter if there is an addiction, like with the terminally ill. This was one of my anxiety medications for 28 years, from the age of 39 years old to the age of 67 years old. Do you see a problem here? Anyway, I stopped taking it, February 25, 2018.
I am very happy when I talk about three dates, and I know this makes me sound very selfish and self-centered! January 6, 2014, the day I had my last cigarette, With a slip-up or two none after the first month!. February 25, 2018, the day I took my last Valium/Diazepam. Thank God! And Coming Soon! The day I take my last pain pill! With the Lord’s help, so I pray and take CBD.
Now is when I remind you again that what works for me may not work for you. We all have individual systems and medical needs that only we and our chosen healthcare provider know about.
Herbal Supplements For A Healthy Life
The main herbal supplements that helped me with the battle while I was leaving Diazepam behind me was Kava and Redicalm. Beware of Kava if you have anything wrong with your liver. It is very hard on the liver and is always advised against using it unless your liver is healthy. Only your healthcare provider can tell you about your liver. You may need tests ran. You may already know you have liver problems.
Redicalm is the fairly new mix of five primary herbal remedies and it is a very good supplement for stress and anxiety. In February, Redicalm was the best product I knew of for anxiety, and it was what helped me through a very difficult time.
Being time for real help without a prescription and keeping it all legal, I am ready for both! I want help where I am not dependent on someone else’s decision or pen. I am looking for help without dependence on other people, for it is time I put to work all I have learned all of my life.
I am very happy, in fact, I am amazed by what CBD oil is doing for me. From taking it the first time and feeling my stomach lose that hard knot that severe anxiety gives you almost immediately, to the slow but steady relief in my pain, I am very well pleased!
Thank you for reading along with me. I will write more tomorrow. Be well.
There are several sizes of bottles of CBD oil and CBD Skin Care and CBD Pain Rub with Emu Oil! I sell CBD Products on my sales pages:
I will stick with CBD oil and other CBD Products. CBD is legal and sold online and in some stores now.
Oils Are A Natural Remedy
Cause & Treatment For Anxiety
I just read another instant cure for Anxiety, well, not all of it, I didn’t pay the $47.00 to be told all the miracle cure for 3/5 of the civilized world! I wonder if I would have tried to pay for it if they had asked for more? Or if they had asked for less? I couldn’t see anyone selling something that priceless to so many people for $47.00? Can you?
So why do we waste our money on things like this? And we do! Every day hundreds pay hard-earned cash for another Instant Cure! And another well-meaning somebody who thinks they have the answer or some con-artist who knows they don’t have the answers, but they are willing to peddle it anyway, sells the latest idea to conquer anxiety once and for all!
No Instant Lasting Magic Cure!
The last one I read that promised a CURE, INSTANTLY, cost $67.00 and I didn’t pay for that one either!
There are no instant cures, for there are two main causes for ‘anxiety’. The first is a chemical imbalance in the brain. Two main chemicals support your comfort level, and when they are not in balance, you will become anxious sometimes without any added stress. This is the mental disorder type of anxiety that requires medication and therapy.
Another cause of ‘anxiety’ is PTSD and Complex-PTSD, for they lay the foundation for many ‘anxieties’. Sometimes you will have a ‘trigger’, caused by the event. Usually, you won’t.
Prescribed Medication – Medicine From Your Doctor
For many years I listened to my early teachings and used only natural remedies for my anxiety, and I did well. As I grew older and life grew more stressful, at the age of thirty-nine I started seeing a doctor. Yes, he was a neurological-psychiatrist, and I stayed with him for nineteen years, until he retired at the age of eighty.
The doctor prescribed medications for me, and I took them. I trusted him, and he had no reason to do me harm. In those years he was right to me as he saw it. The doctor was good as I saw it too until he left and I had to watch my medication more closely.
Medication from a doctor means ‘you have to have a prescription to get it again’, which is fine if you have a steady doctor and you and he/she understands each other. If you lose your steady doctor for some reason, and your medication is a narcotic, and you are addicted from taking it for a number of years, you are in trouble.
Try calling up a doctor and saying, “I need a prescription for this narcotic because I am addicted, and my doctor retired. I will tell you what happens. You are told to, “Go to the ER and tell them exactly what you told me”. The fourth psychiatrist office I called set an appointment for me in seven weeks. My Primary doctor gave me enough medication to make it until my appointment with the new doctor.
Natural Remedies To Help With Anxiety
At my introduction to psychiatric medicine I learned, I am hard to sedate and difficult to treat for anxiety. So when you leave off the narcotics and take natural remedies for yourself, be wise and find a teacher in the herbal remedies.
Know it is not easy to find the right herbal remedy to begin unless you have a guide.
Holistic or Fundamental Medicine Doctor
A Holistic Doctor or a Fundamental Medicine, M.D., with good reputation are two of the best choices for help. Very often vitamin and mineral supplements can replace natural elements that are lacking, like Serotonin.
It is RELAXING for me to have a cup of chamomile tea when I feel stressed or anxious. Try your teas with honey instead of artificial or processed sugars for the sake of your health.
I suggest you should always talk to your doctor about your herbal remedies so she/he can tell you if they will mix well with your other medications and your body conditions. I can’t take very much Kava Kava because I have liver problems. Kava is hard on the liver. Do you know the condition of your liver?
I wrote in the Spring of 2018 that Kava was hard on the liver, and then learned in the Summer of 2018 that studies had actually proven Kava was beneficial to the liver.
Each herbal remedy has it’s intended purposes and limitations. I am going to suggest to you one natural herbal remedy that I used to treat the anxiety that overwhelms my everyday life and leads to anxiety attacks I can’t control. The natural remedy I can truthfully say I use is Redicalm by Nutreance for it is the mixture of five herbal remedies that have served me well in the past. Redicalm comes packaged in handy capsules to be easily taken without worry about measurement.
The Ease OfTaking Natural Remedies
Gone are the days when taking natural remedies meant potions and powders! Difficult to measure and hard to understand, unless this was your calling or profession, and you were willing to devote years to the training in herbs, potions, roots, and many beneficial organic substances.
In the store in capsule form, many natural herbal remedies are available now. Redicalm is in capsule form and all that is needed is for the dosage to be decided. Long ago I took natural herbal remedies instead of prescribed medication and now I take both. I have chemical imbalances for which I need medication to help me until I can find natural herbal remedies to fully take care of me. Believe me, I will be very happy when that day is here.
CBD Oil A Natural Herbal Supplement CB OilBioCare Products
I am using CBD oil now, 1000mg. 4 drops under the tongue every 6 hours for a week was my serving size. It is a natural, herbal supplement grown organically and pesticide free in the United States.
CBD oil is a product from the Cannabis Sativa Hemp Plant a form of cannabis. The CBD has no psychoactive components and doesn’t cause you to become high.
Some people use the THC side of cannabis, but I have enough obstructing my clear thinking. So I will stick with CBD oil and other CBD Products. CBD is legal and sold online and in some stores now.
Four months off valium
Today my serving size is 5 drops at 6 am and 6 pm of the 1000mg CBD oil daily. Tuesday I began my second week on 1/2 a pain pill every 6 hours. I am not using the Redicalm right now.
I am still off of the Diazepam (Valium), and it has been about four months since my last one on February 25, 2018. It was a rough three and a half months but the CBD oil is taking away the cravings and the tremors. Maybe it will do the same with the pain pill withdrawals, I certainly pray so! I am well pleased with the way it has taken care of the anxiety!
TEAS ARE CALMING
When coming off of drugs you have become addicted to, it is a good idea to do it under the care of a good physician, but mine wants me to come into the hospital. Then go off all medications, and that includes psyche meds. Now I am sixty-seven (67), and I have not been off of psyche meds since I was thirty-nine (39).
I have been in the hospital and been denied them for two or three days, and found out how I feel, and I don’t like it without medication. I have been diagnosed correctly and I have Bipolar 1, and I am properly medicated. I definitely don’t want to go through withdrawals and medication deprivation at the same time!
Thus follows, I will watch my blood pressure, drink plenty of liquids, and try to keep my medications down. Take the CBD oil and pray and come off of my pain pills which are opioids.
