Help w/ Anxiety

Does anybody know any tricks or tips that would help me with anxiety, I've come to realize I have a huge anxiety problem, just the thought of something slightly nerve racking makes my stomach hurt and shit.

tell yourself everything will be alright, you mind plays tricks on you, and once you start worrying and then realize you're worrying, it makes things 10x worse. just take a deep breath and chill out

weed made things worse for me, i thought about stuff even more after i smoked and made it worse, probably because i was already down though so it felt worse

How old are you, like 15? You'll grow out of it if and when you realize that things are never as bad as you think they'll be. I used to be mad anxious as well, but I realized that I was blowing little shit out of proportion, and convincing myself something was going to go wrong. Just try not to panic, and try to access the situation from a logical standpoint. Ask yourself this: "what is the absolute worse that can happen?"

Weed and certain prescription medications can also dull your anxiety.

in all seriousness though, relying on any substance to cure your anxiety is a terrible idea because even if it does work short term you're just digging yourself deeper in the hole

real talk.

are you talking about being anxious around other people? doing class presentations and shit? stop masturbating.

after a couple of weeks of no masturbation you won't have anxiety anymore

Think positive?

Find a hobby, it'll take your mind off of things.

Meds is a last resort. A pill isn't gonna get rid of your problems. If your anxiety revolves around real-life things, then attack it. If you're scared of public speaking for example, like the others said, think rationally and put things into perspective: "do i really have anything to worry about?". If you're anxiety is irrational, then you're either too stressed out, or have a form of GAD (I doubt you have GAD though, I think you're just going through a hard time).

With that being said, exercise and eating healthy will defintely make you feel less anxious. I think the thing that helped me the most was meditation and breathing exercises. Just look up "relaxing music" on youtube, clear your mind, and take some slow deep breathes.

If all else fails, then you should try medication, nothing to be ashamed of. Just make sure it's not an addictive substance like Xanax, cause that shit will fuck you up.

What your issue/s man?

What majority of people understand is that in some cases, your anxiety-depression etc is caused by chemicals in your brain being fucked. When that's the case medication is the way to go. Make sure you won't be on it forever though..The side effects can be a bitch( sexual dysfunction being one), but you just got to use it.

For most people, there's enough of a variety out there these days in medication to get around side effects caused by some of them. Usually if one causes sexual dysfunction (which isn't always a bad thing, prozac can be used to treat premature ejaculation), it can be reversed by switching to another type.

Sexual dysfunction is always a bad thing and will make your illness feel worse.
Decreased sex drive, losing ability to ejaculate, softer erection, shorter orgasms-- And this is only the sexual side effects-

Which is why I said if those happen, a doctor can generally find a different anti-anxiety medication that doesn't produce those side effects.

Very hard to find. Even though you can always try 20 dif meds to see what works best for you, personally I won't let that happen.

The point is to block dopamine, and to produce serotonin. Only way to do this is to use prolactin. And when you're prolactin levels rise, your dick will shut down.

Not very accurate^ but I'm not too far from what a doc would say.
