  • What if you had GAD (or the lead up worries) and you have finally surpassed every realistic point of worry (Have nothing to worry about) yet you still feel a near perpetual state of anxiety like something heavy is resting on your chest?

  • I have just been diagnosed with gad after a long ongoing struggle at the hospital with them trying and eventually saving my eye after multiple operations. I believe I have had this for 20+ years and treated it with alcohol either that or alchohol caused it. Chicken or the egg which came first? It was only about a year of alcoholic decline and the mental abyss from that that my anxiety was noticeable as a separate entity as I was so suicidal and off my rocker anyway. I was convinced it was my glaucoma medication that had done this to me and even now I am convinced its tweaking a already edgy situation. I have lost nearly all my friends as I don't want to go out the house and my neighbours think I am a lose cannon. Although I don't cause drama I have been known to knock on my neighbours doors if I hear a loud sound I don't recognize I find certain sounds highly distressing and if someone threatens me (what I deem to be a threat, not a actually threat) then I become instantly clicky. If I know I have a appointment the next day a week away or a year away I will worry to the point of not sleeping well I have even shredded a few bed covers from gripping them so tight with nightmares. This has calmed lately but it keeps coming back. I can't ever watch television but don't want to socialize. Meditation relaxes me briefly but isn't a cure. I am due to go for cbt hopefully that will help but I am never a believer at the best of times. I end up in tears only briefly but daily and don't understand why. Things I hear or try to watch on television affect me. Shouting in dramas the violence in horror films makes me either really angry or really sad , there is only so many times you can watch american pickers , pawn stars and storage wars before you know each episode word for word. My life doesn't seem totally destroyed it is. I don't think about alcohol I have been working the step programme and it helps with the fog alcohol left in my life but I still think this is a different type of beast and I am highly tempted to try cbd oil although it could be risky to my glaucoma and vision as latest studies show it can close the angle and circulation slightly raising eye pressure. I would like to know if this has helped anybody else with gad? Please reply if its genuinely helped you or if it didn't help you at all I would really like to know. Hopefully in time I can learn to live with gad I am certainly not living now #zombie brain.....

[Epub ahead of print] Cannabinoids prevent the differential long-term effects of exposure to severe stress on hippocampal- and amygdala-dependent memory and plasticity. Shoshan N1, Segev A1, Abush H1, Mizrachi Zer-Aviv T1, Akirav I1. Author information Abstract Exposure to excessive or uncontrolled stress is a major factor associated with various diseases including posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The consequences of exposure to trauma are affected not only by aspects of the event itself, but also by the frequency and severity of trauma reminders. It was suggested that in PTSD, hippocampal-dependent memory is compromised while amygdala-dependent memory is strengthened. Several lines of evidence support the role of the endocannabinoid (eCB) system as a modulator of the stress response. In this study we aimed to examine cannabinoids modulation of the long-term effects (i.e., 1 month) of exposure to a traumatic event on memory and plasticity in the hippocampus and amygdala. Following exposure to the shock and reminders model of PTSD in an inhibitory avoidance light-dark apparatus rats demonstrated: (i) enhanced fear retrieval and impaired inhibitory extinction (Ext), (ii) no long-term potentiation (LTP) in the CA1, (iii) impaired hippocampal-dependent short-term memory in the object location task, (iv) enhanced LTP in the amygdala, and (v) enhanced amygdala-dependent conditioned taste aversion memory. The cannabinoid CB1/2 receptor agonist WIN55-212,2 (0.5mg/kg, i.p.) and the fatty acid amide hydrolase (FAAH) inhibitor URB597 (0.3mg/kg, i.p.), administered 2 hr after shock exposure prevented these opposing effects on hippocampal- and amygdala-dependent processes. Moreover, the effects of WIN55-212,2 and URB597 on Ext and acoustic startle were prevented by co-administration of a low dose of the CB1 receptor antagonist AM251 (0.5mg/kg, i.p.), suggesting that the preventing effects of both drugs are mediated by CB1 receptors. Exposure to shock and reminders increased CB1 receptor levels in the CA1 and basolateral amygdala 1 month after shock exposure and this increase was also prevented by administering WIN55-212,2 or URB597. Taken together, these findings suggest the involvement of the eCB system, and specifically CB1 receptors, in the opposite effects of severe stress on memory and plasticity in the hippocampus and amygdala. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/22016520/ Effects of elevation of brain magnesium on fear conditioning, fear extinction, and synaptic plasticity in the infralimbic prefrontal cortex and lateral amygdala. Abumaria N, et al. J Neurosci. 2011. Show full citation Abstract Anxiety disorders, such as phobias and posttraumatic stress disorder, are among the most common mental disorders. Cognitive therapy helps in treating these disorders; however, many cases relapse or resist the therapy, which justifies the search for cognitive enhancers that might augment the efficacy of cognitive therapy. Studies suggest that enhancement of plasticity in certain brain regions such as the prefrontal cortex (PFC) and/or hippocampus might enhance the efficacy of cognitive therapy. We found that elevation of brain magnesium, by a novel magnesium compound [magnesium-l-threonate (MgT)], enhances synaptic plasticity in the hippocampus and learning and memory in rats. Here, we show that MgT treatment enhances retention of the extinction of fear memory, without enhancing, impairing, or erasing the original fear memory. We then explored the molecular basis of the effects of MgT treatment on fear memory and extinction. In intact animals, elevation of brain magnesium increased NMDA receptors (NMDARs) signaling, BDNF expression, density of presynaptic puncta, and synaptic plasticity in the PFC but, interestingly, not in the basolateral amygdala. In vitro, elevation of extracellular magnesium concentration increased synaptic NMDAR current and plasticity in the infralimbic PFC, but not in the lateral amygdala, suggesting a difference in their sensitivity to elevation of brain magnesium. The current study suggests that elevation of brain magnesium might be a novel approach for enhancing synaptic plasticity in a regional-specific manner leading to enhancing the efficacy of extinction without enhancing or impairing fear memory formation. PMID 22016520 [Indexed for MEDLINE] PMCID PMC6623582 nccih.nih.gov/research/results/spotlight/072811.htm A new study has provided the first evidence that omega‑3 fatty acids of the types found in fish oils may reduce anxiety in healthy people who have not been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder. Omega‑3 fatty acids also reduced inflammation in the study participants but did not affect depressive symptoms. In this double-blind study, which was partly supported by NCCAM, researchers from Ohio State University gave 68 healthy young medical students (38 men, 30 women) a fish oil supplement containing omega‑3 fatty acids or an inactive placebo for 12 weeks. On several occasions, either on the day before a major exam or during lower-stress periods, the study participants provided blood samples and completed standard questionnaires that measured symptoms of anxiety and depression. The blood was tested for levels of substances indicating inflammation. Anxiety symptoms were 20 percent lower and levels of a blood marker of inflammation (lipopolysaccharide-stimulated interleukin‑6 production) were 14 percent lower in the students taking fish oil than in those taking the placebo, but depressive symptoms did not differ between the two groups. The researchers could not assess effects of exam-related stress because the students did not show significantly higher levels of anxiety, depression, or inflammation before exams than at other times. The results of this study suggest that increased intakes of omega‑3 fatty acids could be beneficial for young, healthy people by reducing anxiety symptoms and inflammation, a process that plays a role in many diseases. The lack of an effect on depression is consistent with a recent combined analysis of earlier trials, which concluded that omega‑3 fatty acids may reduce depressive symptoms in clinically depressed people but not in those with less severe depressed moods.

  • I have this disorder along with three other mental health disorders I am always worried about everything constantly vigilant I don’t go out anywhere at all unless I have somebody with me I don’t take public transportation because I am afraid to and I can never let go I always go to the flight or fight levels and my adrenaline even goes up and I just can’t stop any of it and I do have a therapist and a psychiatrist that I do work with and right now they’re just trying to keep me stable so that way I can get surgery that I need to have done without constant worrying about all the things that could go wrong I love going in for surgery because I can get good sleep but I still worry and they have to give me something to relax before they take me into the operating room and I have had multiple operations I need variety of different things I wish I didn’t have this disorder but all the questions that he asked I hit every single one and I am worried that I’m not going to get better when I want to thank you for reading this message I greatly appreciate it and any advice or replies that people have I would more than happy to read them

  • Notice how the first few examples of GAD thought were related to economic factors. GAD is caused by economic exploitation and class antagonism. The implementation of Neoliberal economic policies over the last 30-40 years directly correlates with the increase of GAD and similar conditions. Open your eyes people.

  • Cognitive Behaviour Therapy fails to address the core issue. Anxiety disorders are often linked to a deficiency of GABA in the brain. You can talk until you are blue in the face but if you don't have enough GABA in your Brain you are going to feel anxious. The whole premise of CBT and mindfulness is that you are anxious because you are thinking about life the wrong way. If you change your way of thinking you will feel less anxious. Personally I am not buying that. That doesn't take into account the fact that your brain may be low on Serotonin and GABA. It completely refutes that low levels of Neurotransmitters cause anxiety. If you gave Dr Vincent Greenwood a drug that depleted his GABA levels he would lock himself in a room and not go out. In order to feel calm and not anxious you need to have sufficient levels of GABA and Serotonin in your brain. No amount of talking is going to change that fact.

  • I believe in regular meditation practice since this has trained my mind to let go of thoughts and feelings. It's not thoughts and feelings that cause the suffering but the clinging to them. A person does not have to be thinking all the time. Being able to think when one wants and not do so as one wants. In western society meditation is not recommended. In Asia therapists are not a fad. I would ask you how long you can remain in present awareness without thoughts? I bet not even one minute. Guess how long a person can do this with practice? I expect a response from someone without meditation practice which means you cannot know about it. I used to suffer hours of worst case thinking from PTSD. A Buddhist saying: take refuge in the present moment.

Pharmaceutical treatment with anything but benzos has been unsuccessful, and they are not a long-term solution. I haven't had much success with therapists either, unfortunately.

  • Let me put it this way. I have GAD. Severe GAD for that fact. 1. I wake up every morning with the feeling of fear in my body. That is throughout the whole day. I can't turn it off. It's the feeling when you worry or are scared of something. Even if I'm not worrying about something(really rare) then I still feel it. 2. When I wake up the first thing I think of is the worry and I continue the worry I left yesterday. 3. All worries are targeted at you. So you worry about all the possi le disease you may have and you start researching everything specific detail about every disease and go through your thoughts throughout your whole life incase you had the Symptoms. Also when I gave my friend muy phone once toy friend for 5 seconds. For a month I worried he downloaded an app that he could spy on me with. I reseted my phone 8 times and still worried about it. This is just one example of many thinga I worry about. 3. When I eat I wash my hands 5 times usauly also use alcohol on my hands, hand sanatiser and then put on gloves that have been washed even when using a knife and thork just in case I catch a disease from my hands. 4. anything you touch or do will trigger your brain to worry about the certain situation. 5. You can worry about something for 1 month and in 1 second stop and worry about something completely different. 6. You don't want to go out because you want to focus on your worry and research g about the disease or whatever you're worried about. Honestly I just don't wish this upon my worst enemies.

Depression and suicidal thoughts didnt make it easier lol ... i pushed away all my friends, girlfriend, now finishing high school and getting my diploma in December, trying to freelance to make some money and being able to build a better life for me. What is your plan? Things can get better!!!! The truth is that a lot of people that never tend to worrie so much make shitty decisions and are awful at planning to the future long term, never adquire cross-disciplinary knowledge of the world and low their expectations through time, im grateful with my mental illness in the sense that obligated me to become more aware of where i have to improve, i was in drugs, alcohol and parties....0 thoughts and plan about my future, im low middle class in Argentina, with a really small family ( a lot of people had abandoned us, including my dad) and i always had behavior problem in schools, which obviously i hate... but now... i dedicated almost 2 years ( 18-19 i controlled the Anxiety and Depression, at 19 it backfired and took me out from day to day society) to read from Marketing, Computer Science, Neuroscience, Business, English, History, etc. And trying to learn from me, from what i want, what i need to feel safe and take back control of my life, how to even build what i want. So... i dont know your story and context... but i do think that we can get better about the cortisol that runs through our bodys 24/7 without control lol and we can take positive things about our obstacles. I hope that had been sharing a bit about me, makes you feel understood

  • That’s how my husband is. But my concern now is he has been taking Zoloft 100mg 1 a day for like 4 years, and recently doctor prescribed him 1 tablet and a half a day. Is this going to become a problem? Like is he going to continue to need more dosage with time and eventually won’t be able to take it anymore because it won’t do anything? I want my husband to be able to find a way to calm himself down without taking so much meds. It’s funny because I was the one who urged him to go to the doctor and take meds, and now I’m worried. He has gained a lot of weight and became pre-diabetic. Now if he takes more he will gain more weight. It’s all very stressing. :(

    • And yet in 6 months you can lose your job, hurt your family, wreck your life, and still be expected to show up for work undiagnosed. Try having anxiety with one lobe not working and one on hyper putting you at risk for aneurism. Then try be misdiagnosed for 35 years and given 20+ drugs that don't treat your condition. Try losing every job you ever had and having to become disabled because people can't work with you. Try being poisoned and foggy minded amnesia with anxiety. All the fakers ruin it making the 6 month rule. The DSM is a piece of trash that needs to be rewritten by people who actually want to save the patients, and not use them like Guinea pigs. Funny how I read all these and personally don't feel anyone here is stressed like he says Because YOU WROTE SOMETHING. I am having a panic attack, shaking and sweating, just to write this. Hope it was enlightening. I could claim above yoh all but I see it in kids. Public school will be illegal soon because of the lawsuits and Stress of making kids learn nonsense.. Like fake psychology, no nutrition, fake math, fake science, etc. Memorization is not education. This is a memorized rant nonspecific to anyone making it dangerous as it is informative.

  • Hi, I would like to ask, what if such a worry is triggered by family - an environment where there is constant blame, shame, shouting on a daily basis? And a constant fear to put items in the house for example, in the original condition because once off will trigger blaming and shaming by a mother/mother-in-law again? How to overcome constant worry when you are trapped in such an environment?

  • Thank you! I've learned, during a very difficult journey 🙏away from my seemingly Christian long time husband, about an incredible problem in the world. He actually has dangerous covert narcisisissm. Many, many persons are apparently adept with nocturnal sorcery. They wait until the person they target is asleep, then place Scopalamine and/or similar drugs in the sleeping persons mouth. (This sleeping person could be any age or gender.) Anyway, the target is awakened in a drugged, submissive, childlike unquestioning stupor. The drugger -mugger/s then use the targets for porn, oral and other sex, various kinds of torture that doesn't leave marks, garnering info, etc... The victim wakes up in the morning with no memory of the abuse, but a plethora of harsh symptoms begin. These include "strange" fears, anger, depression, lusts, etc... I use and recommend the use of portable inside locks on the bedroom door, and secure the windows when traveling. I have a security system in my apartment, the windows are secure, and there's an added inside lock on the main door. I'm now coping with the aftershocks of having been one of the targets for many years. God's blessings and grace are very needed, sufficient, and very needed! Take care. 🕊️🌷

  • Am I the ONLY child with GAD who’s anxiety’s get turned into delusions, paranoia, and hallucinations? I’ve never seen a person like that mention it, but my therapist says it’s normal for GAD.

    • redvelvetgirl that would make sense because both my siblings have OCD but I wouldn’t know for sure. I’m getting some tests done soon though

    • I’ve heard of all of those symptoms with a diagnosis of OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) rather than GAD. OCD isn’t just checking door locks and washing hands.

  • Such a wonderful video, packed with information! I agree about the focus on behavior being very important in CBT. I talk about it in my video Cognitive Behavioral Therapy Exercises.
