Questions and Answers

Are there any good anxiety medications available in the UK?

I am male, 20 and have suffered anxiety really bad for 4 years (since I was 16). I started on anti-depressants to try and alleviate my anxiety and none of them worked, they only numbed the symptoms of depression, I was then given propranolol at age 18 and this only made me feel light headed. I am now only on an anti depressant which does nothing to help my anxiety.
I am house bound most of the time due to anxiety, I feel suicidal because I cannot live this way anymore, I am desperate for a better life but the wall is too thick.
I want some medication to help with anxiety not just typical ssri's or snri's. I want something to hit the spot but doctors in the UK are not willing to prescribe effective medication like valium because people abused them in the past and ruined it for everyone who needs them.
What can I get from Doctor that will help

wrong wrong wrong direction to take entireely
what is paramount is to choose your healing route------ carefully with good information-- be really aware that the druggs/meds treatment for this can/will be damaging to your mind and body .

Evaluate all of this info well –it will save ---years of suffering = if you apply it ..

All treatment recommended by the doctors should be tested and approved and quite rightly so.
That makes sense
.it costs millions of pounds to test and approve just one treatment.

Drug companies Fund most testing and will only and I mean only look at treatments, which show the promise of good deal of a profit, --they will actively dismiss any therapy which does not have profit potential— thus your doctor will only recommend therapies that have been tested with profit potential in them.

Despite The fact that some of these other therapies mentioned below do have overwhelming benefits some, which have saved needless amputations, needless pain and trauma, and much loss of life.

Drugs are not the answer for depression with mind altering damaging chemicals or any other mental illness. They at best only mask symptoms -

This is a fundamental principle try to grasp this fully –

Have you heard your local doctor recommend, Massage Spiritual healing, reiki Light therapy, Colour therapy, the violet ray therapy, Osteopathy, Electrical Frequency devices. Karma therapy and u wont because no one can put a patent on these therapies .

For much more info/ detail and research behind this protocol
Go here http://uk.groups.yahoo.com/group/theholi…
Upon joining this group you will be sent a file giving the info –or go to the files section within the group and u will see it there

Print this all off save it and enact it and share it --- of course someone to help you get these therapies in your life is invaluable but do not be swayed by anyone trying for short cuts …
.
1,get someone to massage your back and legs at least 3 times a week use peanut oil or a mix of 50-50 olive and peanut oil.

2 use the violet ray machine an Edgar Cayce device google search this --- 3 times a week on the other days especially on the spine….we use it every day with very positive results

3.get a tent sleep out side 3times a week utilising earth energy - nature can help big time especially with how you feel how much energy you have

4 study and apply good nutrition— adele davis books =protein minerals =iron essential fatty acids omega 3 6 9 protein etc

5 ensure your thyroid is working well get it checked

6 ensure you do at least I hr per day some kind of voluntary work when you are able..the reasons you are ill , or poor or have allsorts of bad things happen to you is because of karma -----usually from past lives but some from this one –voluntary work will offset your mistakes--- how much it offsets well that is down to god and how much you do. Healing us is in direct proportion to the help we give others ie your healing comes with helping others achieve theirs so if people are doing very little in helping others ---they suffer more and longer...and if they are doing a lot they get well faster....so now you know what to do ,,and like a lot of us are already doing being of service.

7 be amongst people who are giving, friendly who have time for you who love you , choose your friends well . choose your company well.

8 be or get to a place which personally love or like

9 get and do some work which you like or love

10 ensure you do no acts which hurt or inflict on anyone –don’t want to add to your karma do we !!!

11 spiritual healing and reiki find good therapists who offer this service in your area many spiritualist churches offer this for free as part of their vocational offerings to the divine.

12 focus your mind - think good positive thoughts, laughter, look at comedy, play good uplifting music,

13 avoid at all costs exposure to violence, murders, suffering ,death ,tragedies, -feed upon good things uplifting things, things that feel like a breath of fresh air..

14 Positive affirmation- that’s right programme your self in the mirror , thoughts are things words are things actions are things , all have influence, few people realise these things can have an effect on themselves .

15 a detox ------ toxins can influence how you feel big time

16 hugs get plenty of them in your daily life you would be amazed at how people feel after a few decent hugs…
.
17 loads of exercise running walking climbing but something which you enjoy

18 rid yourselves of all aspartame laden foods and drink and many additives ==ensure water intake

A total cure however is tied up with karma so you can imagine just how important is the voluntary work. The more u do the better u will feel .

Please can someone help with the unknown "attacks" I have medically or possible offer some advice?

I don't want to go into too much detail, but I had been to the Univ Of Mich hospital in Ann Arbor, MI for what at the time we had thought was NMS (Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome), later confirmed by a neurologist as not NMS. In short terms, my body had started to VERY violently shake and my Heartrate may have been higher even, but my mother and the attending doctor had confirmed from the heart machine that I had a pulse of "well over 220 beats per minute". I have had several "attacks" as such, and required massive amounts of IV Ativan and sometimes IV Haldol to lower my heartrate to an acceptable 120-140 or so. The question I am wondering is this: I have heard that the acceptable "Max Rate" is as such: 220 minus my age, which is 24. So knowing that, my acceptable Max should have been below 200. I have been treated for this multiple times and I have been told if my body (esp. arms, legs) start to twitch at any time, especially while driving, to pull over IMMEDIATELY, call 911 and they must treat with massive benzos (I think it's always Ativan) I received 15-20Mg of Valium a few days ago when it last happened while on the way to the hospital and as told by the EMS, "It did nothing". I am very worried about this as I know that you can either flatline or have bad heart failure requiring paddles. I've never gotten to the point of needing a shock, but the hospitals I've been to have basically flooded my system with so much Ativan, sometimes Haldol, and I think other benzos in IV form that I have never had failure. If this "seizure-like" symptoms keep happening, is there anything I can do "on-the-spot" to even slow down the process of what happens? I did not ask because I figured that Injectable Ativan was for In-hospital use only. But I'm also wondering what should I do if I am either driving or am somewhere not very close to a hospital? I generally had transport times of maybe 10-15 minutes to total Ativan Injection. The first time I was with friends and they thought I was just messing around, but I have not heard from a single doctor that said it was NOT a VERY serious issue, and was told that upon the slightest sensation on twitching, jerking, etc, to call 911 and tell them I need transport immediately and if possible to tell them I need injections of Ativan (don't ask me why valium doesn't work, I don't know) as soon as possible. As far as I know the ALS EMS only carries IV Valium which did NOT work for me. When I went by ambulance a few days ago, my heartrate I believe (since caught very early by my aunt who called 911) jumped from about 120-140 up to at least 180 in the ambulance EVEN after they had injected IV Valium. I started out with an above average BPM, and the Valium seemed to cause the uncontrollable jerking, spasming, shaking to worsen WAY worse and they had given me I think like 15Mg, also before ALS arrived, my aunt administered a 1/2 tablet of 10Mg Valium (so 5Mg). I have so many questions that still remain unanswered, but I am so worried about it that I have even broken down in tears just trying to explain my "attacks" to people. I have also been told to keep plenty of Valium (even though it seems to worsen conditions) 10Mg tablets in my car with me at all times. I have never flatlined, but recall that at 1 hospital they had a crash cart ready for me, and the 1 I just got out of, they had me in the resuscitation room, I remembered seeing probably close to 20 people around ( Apparently they had cardiac equipment on hand and they had Cardiac doctors there, a couple other doctors, a few nurses, nurse aides, Respiratory Therapists, Surgeons, etc. all watching me and waiting to make sure everything went smoothly) I also when having an attack, at the beginning start stuttering just about every word I say and saying my sentences multiple times. Then it seems to progress into light to moderate shaking ( at my aunt's house a few days ago I was shaking my hands on the table so much that the table started to rock and the stuff on it started vibrating) I also generally after the shaking starts cannot verbalize anything but sometimes I can respond by shaking my head yes or no to simple questions by like paramedics. Another thing, although I have had high stress and anxiety for a while, the attacks seem to occur around the times I am most upset or stressed. While at my aunt's house before I started shaking, also I broke down to tears and was trying to talk not very well because I was crying so hysterically I could not talk. I would like to know if anyone knows what this could be (maybe someone here knows more than the doctors I saw) and whether there is any way to totally stop it. It is VERY SCARY and seems to be VERY dangerous also. I have since being discharged today, been told I am not allowed to operate a car or any kind of vehicle and/or machinery. I am mainly worried that one day I will have an attack and noone will be around. The attack at my aunt's house almost could have cost me and/or someone else

You mention seeing a Neurologist but have you seen a Cardiologist who can run tests to find out the cause of these attacks and possibly treat you with medication or a pacemaker. You have valium at home which does you no good, why didn't the Dr prescribe Ativan on a daily basis? You need a Cardiologist. Take your records and all the tests you've had done and find a Cardiologist. If your heart is beating that fast a Neurologist is the wrong Dr to see.

Therapy sucks?

The problem with therapy is that it doesn't actually work.

This is because psychology and psychiatry barely qualify as sciences at all. They are
sciences in their infancy, much like where medical science was 200 years ago. Consider
medicine in 1800 or so, before the discovery of DNA, viruses, and bacteria. Surgery was
being done, diseases were being treated, there were plenty of theories as to the cause of
disease and the ways to stay healthy. Most of these theories were wrong, and most of the
treatments for diseases did nothing of value, or were even harmful. Some worked quite
well.

This is comparable to where psychology and psychiatry are today. Their practitioners
have no true understanding of the human psyche and human personality. What they have
is a large amount of data, based on lots of research. They've looked at this data, and
figured out that psychological symptoms tend to cluster together in common patterns,
which they refer to as disorders. Manic depressive personality disorder, attention deficit
disorder, post traumatic stress disorder, etc.

They've also found that certain drugs will mask to some extent the symptoms for some of
these "disorders". So, tranquilizers for anxiety disorders, antidepressants for depressive
disorders, and so on. They have no real understanding of why these drugs work, and the
only theory they've been able to come up with is that these drugs are correcting a
chemical imbalance in the brain. This is clearly ridiculous, the idea that somehow, after
millions of years of evolution designed to perfect us, 50% of human beings have
chemical imbalances in their brains.

None of this gives them any sort of true understanding of the human psyche, and as a
result they can't actually cure anyone who has psychological problems. Don't take my
word for this, look at the evidence out in the world. If people could be cured, why not cure
criminals? Instead of putting them in prison, send them off to be cured and make them
happy functioning members of society. Of course this isn't being done, because
therapists don't have the ability to do so.

Take pedophiles, for example. Their primary problem, besides the willingness to abuse
children, is the fact that their sexual orientation is towards children. Children turn them on
sexually. If we could cure them, if we could alter them psychologically so that they were
no longer sexually attracted to children, they would never molest a child again. But
therapists have zero ability to do this, they have never done this a single time with anyone.
At best, they can possibly get the pedophile not to act on his desires, but the desires will
still be there.

This is not to say that therapy is totally worthless. If you want a paid friend who will listen to
you talk about your troubles, go see a therapist. If you don't understand yourself or your
actions very well, it could be helpful to you to have someone intelligent and objective
analyze you. If you make stupid decisions in your life and need the assistance of
someone with more common sense than yourself, a therapist can certainly be helpful.
"Well Sarah, since your husband beats you all the time, and since you don't want to be
beaten all the time, have you considered leaving him?"

And if you're tired of alcohol, marijuana, cocaine, and other such drugs, and want access
to some cool prescription drugs, go see a psychiatrist for your mood-altering needs.
Maybe Xanax or Valium or Paxil can finally make you feel the way you want to feel.

But if you were actually hoping to change yourself psychologically, too bad, therapists
don't know enough to help with that. They can help you change what you DO, perhaps,
since you yourself can change what you do. But they don't know how to change who you
are.

I'm looking for the question in there, not sure I see one...

I agree with you, though; psychology and psychiatry are definitely in their infancy, but since the science was actually recognized, they have been making leaps and bounds toward learning more about the psyche.

There is no short cut, especially where the brain is concerned. It is interesting to be an observer (if not an active participant) in the process of the development of the science- though I definitely do not want to be on the wrong side of the scientific stick, being fed drugs that only treat symptoms while developing new problems.

Help Needed !!!!?

The older you get, the tougher it is to lose weight because by then, your body and your fat are really good friends.

Just when I was getting used to yesterday, along came today.

Sometimes I think I understand everything, then I regain consciousness.

I gave up jogging for my health when my thighs kept rubbing together and setting my pantyhose on fire.


Amazing! You hang something in your closet for a while and it shrinks two sizes!



Skinny people irritate me! Especially when they say things like, "You know, sometimes I just forget to eat."

Now I've forgotten my address, my mother's maiden name, and my keys. But I've never forgotten to eat. You have to be a special kind of stupid to forget to eat.





A friend of mine confused her valium with her birth control pills. She had 14 kids, but she doesn't really care.



The trouble with some women is that they get all excited about nothing and then they marry him!


I read this article that said the typical symptoms of stress are: eating too much, impulse buying, and driving too fast. Are they kidding? That is my idea of a perfect day.



I know what Victoria's Secret is. The secret is that nobody older than 30 can fit into their stuff.





Celebrate Womanhood! Share this with all of those amazingly brilliant and tremendously talented women who are intelligent enough to call YOU their friend :-) !!!
