Anxiety

Recommended Posts

hello

i used to have anxiety a few years back   it was bad!   i started doing stupid stuff like drinking alcohol everyday, sometime 9 am 10am in the morning!  i drank heavily for around 3 yrs and then decided to get help and went to my gp  he gave me anti depressants. around the same time i started going gurdwara. just being at the gurdwara and sangat helped me a lot, i started reading about sikhi and started keeping my kesh    soon after that i stopped taking the anti depressants.    i believe sikhi helped me out of it   

the medication only helps you to a certain point  you need to try yourself as well    for me sikhi filled that void 

a lot people with anxiety start relying on alcohol but its very destructive and just makes it worse. once your hooked on its hard to get off it.  even now i sometimes remember the taste and get a craving   but it doesn't happen that often, but when i first stopped drinking the alcohol  for the first 2 yrs or so it was really hard at times! whenever i would walk past a off license i would get a strong craving     

Waheguru has brought me a long way    i sometimes wonder if it wasn't for sikhi where i would be today with the direction i was heading with the alcohol and anxiety 

for everything waheguru does for us we really dont appreciate it

Has any one here overcome anxiety issues?  Interested to hear what worked? 

Try regular (daily) simran (10/15 minutes).

 

Also, make this and drink it before you go sleep.  Soak two tablespoons of poppy seeds (khus khus) overnight. 

Then remove khus khus from water (use fine sieve) and put into a mortar and pestle. Grind these seeds with a few almonds, pistachios (5 of each will do), some green cardamons. When grinded into a nice paste throw in pan with about two cups of milk. Add teaspoon of ghee (Keeo) and a twist of black pepper. Add a tiny bit of gurh if you want it slightly sweet (but not too much!).

Boil for about 4/5 minutes (stirring and scrapping bottom of pan to make sure it doesn't burn/stick) and drink. 

Do this for a week or two.

hi

without invading your privacy in any way:

is your anxiety endogenous or exogenous?  meaning, do you not know what it is happening (like a biological problem) or is it being caused due to something outside of you (e.g. watching the news, associating with negative people, previous bad/traumatic experiences?).

Caused primarily by external issues, uncertainty, being treated unfairly. But at times I’m feeling constant anxiety but I can’t figure out why.

When you are happy or laughing do you go asking for help? After all you are in those 'emotional states' temporarily before you are in another temporary state. They are caused by specific inputs (i.e a joke) that your 'wiring' interprets and responds to with an action like laughing, endorphin release etc. The same goes with 'anxiety' it's a product of your 'wiring' (or ego if you want to give a specific name, that voice inside your head, the me), and how it responds to stimuli / inputs. Does your eternal 'awareness' that observes the voice in your head suffer with anxiety, stress, laughter, joy etc? Nah. That was the way this fool dealt with emotions it didn't like. I (in a loose sense) just started to observe the emotions as a temporary thing that come and go, and if they deep down didn't make me better were just not welcome anymore in taking up my awareness. That voice in your head is not you. Read some Elkhart Tolle to understand a bit about that disfucntional voice in your head

do you watch the news?  if so stop.  they deliberately try and scare people these days.  if you still want to keep up to date, just skim a quality newspaper online once a day.

also, do you associate with people who talk in ways that make you feel nervous.  again, try and cut down time spent with them.

try also practising affirmations.

when you feel anxious for no reason, try and preoccupy your mind with something like a relaxing computer game/app, watching a comedy or a simple sport like kicking a ball around.  anything that you mind feels drawn to.

also, you can try taking a natural b-complex supplement.  don't take megadoses though.

I want to get better, I want to get over this but things are getting worse before they get better. I’m really hoping this is not something I have to deal with the rest of my life.

Here is what I’ve tried so far:  herbs, teas, ardas,psychologists, deep breathing, meditating, exercise, listening to path,family dr who prescribed anti anxiety pills and antidepressants, psychiatrist, echart tolle,counselling.  I’m at the point where I don’t know what else could work. The antidepressants and making me worse, family thinks I’ve gone crazy

How long you been taking them   because when you take them  they first make you even more depressed and then it gets better. When your first take them it first makes you go down and then after you start feeling better and your mood goes up

      Everything, and I mean absolutely EVERY LITTLE THING, the white man has was stolen from brown and black people. EVERYTHING...including medicine. Appropriate it...steal it...call it what you want but the fact is that white people have throughout history right up to the present day, steal what brown and black people have and then call it their own. In a few posts on this thread I have mentioned how white people stole eastern philosophy and then claimed it as their own (and called it western philosophy) even through the original practitioners of that philosophy made it abundantly clear that the white northern european was a barbarian incapable of intellectual thought but really it runs far more deeper than that. White people have always been about TAKING, TAKING and TAKING. They habitually take and then claim as their own. They are habitual thieves. Here's some more examples: The cure to smallpox was actually invented by a black slave, Onesimus. Here's the story of how the white man stole it from him and claimed it as their own: https://www.historyofvaccines.org/content/blog/onesimus-smallpox-boston-cotton-mather   Picasso stole his 'art' from ancient African art and claimed it as his (western intellectalisms) own:   Now you know me....You know I could go on and on here. The point is that white people...ALL WHITE PEOPLE....are not only thieves but they are also habitual liars. They LIE. And they teach their children to LIE. They lie because they cannot handle the truth. Not only do they lie about true history but they also lie day to day when it comes to getting jobs, their qualifications etc. You see the priviledge they have created for themselves enables them to lie. They're not held accountable the way we are.  What we're seeing now from white people though is a desperate attempt to preserve their priviledge. Their lies are being exposed and history is fast catching up with them. For example, not only are the Chinese and Indians now at the forefront of medical advances the Chinese are giving white people payback in the sense that a hundred odd years ago the white man deliberately pushed opium on the Chinese masses and now the Chinese are paying back that favour by flooding the white man with opiods. At the end of the day thieves always get their comeuppance.
    • India in it's current political format is. But it definitely exists as a geographical entity or even as some civilisational entity and is far more connected than what Pakistan is. The strands that keep it together are more indigenous.  Islam and not being India is what makes Pakistan.
