That's not just what this is for. I've spent what probably equates to years trying to sort myself out. If I can pass in some of that info I'll have given something back.
True, but doesnt always mean its going to work for other people plus you will feel better getting it off your chest but you might get addicted to that feeling of trying i help othersThat's not just what this is for. I've spent what probably equates to years trying to sort myself out. If I can pass in some of that info I'll have given something back.
Well.... I've gotta make it good haven't I if I'm going to be sharing it with you bastards on hereWhere's this blog then? We're all waiting..
Thanks man, of course its going to be written from my perspective. But I'm hoping I can help people and that people can help me. I'd do it on a forum but I think it would piss people off.Don't expect everybody to be as "interested" in the things you're "interested in" and have something to say about it.
I've only known a couple of people who kept blogs and found them to be pretty self-centered types who think the world needed to know the things they rambled on about.
Welcome to my blog on Anxiety and how to man up the fuck up…
Just kidding, I personally know how having an anxiety disorder and being a guy do not sit easily with each other. Although I imagine it’s not much better for ladies either, nobody wants to admit they have mental health issues, that’s for crazy people... So they say.
It does have to be done though, the sooner the better in my honest opinion.
It’s something I have battled since as long as I can remember, so probably about mummy…. 4 or 5 years of age, and I’m pretty sure it will be hear as long as I am here. But I have got to the stage now where it is bearable..
I have been through the whole merry-go-round of SSRIs, TCAs, Buspirone, Mirtazapine (weight gain, yep it’s as bad as people say but can be helped) and all the associated shitty side effects that come with them. Got myself addicted to pot, alcohol benzos.
I’m a 34 year old guy, just your typical lad from northern England, and I’m into your typical guy stuff, football (soccer for the Americans if any are reading) cars, boxing.. Yes believe it or not a guy with an anxiety disorder can still climb into a boxing ring and do a few rounds of sparring..Which considering that after being beaten up by a drunk gang of guys when I was 15 and hospitalised, I wouldnt leave the house at weekends for about 2 years shows how bad my anxiety used to be. Even then when I used to go on nights out I would get into fights because I was so amped up from the anxiety and it used to get that bad that I would vomit before and during these nights out.
I’ve read plenty of books, blogs forums the works.
I’m not going to tell people how to cure anxiety disorders without medicine because I can’t, I haven’t cured my own, but I have found things that help me and managed to cut out some of the bad stuff and I am hoping to share the journey with other people.
Because I am a bit of a research addict, I will be posting things up I have learned and some of the things like supplements for example which have helped me along the way.
Also, I will be posting about my withdrawal from Benzos, which needs to be pretty soon with my first child being due to born at the end of summer.
I am also trying to get back into shape after the weight gain caused partly from all the medication, alcohol and the munchies have caused, so I’ll probably post updates about that if anyone is interested.
I’ll also be posting a few memes and jokes I enjoy, especially if a reader of this blogs sends them to me
