  • My first doctor diagnosed anxiety disorder, but ignored the debilitating depression which pissed me off. Later I had a seizure and the neurologist suggested another psychologist. This one suggested practicing mindfulness before trying any medication and it kind of was like a miracle switch off button for the anxiety. Just getting reigning in the anxiety itself has made me feel so much better

  • Good day everyone, l don’t normally post on social media, this is a great testimony l must share. Please read and share to others.

  • As someone who has been diagnosed with GAD, as well as bpd, adhd, and mdd I can 100% agree that medication alone is not going to benefit anyone in the long run. I would not be where I right now if it wasn’t for the regular therapy sessions I have attended in the last two and half years. It makes a difference and it’s definitely worth it

  • How does a combat veteran get help? The V.A. will not help. The state will not help. I have a job. No Health insurance. I’m a part of America’s working poor. How does an American veteran get help? The V.A. will NOT HELP. HOW DOES A COMBAT VETERAN GET HELP?

  • I had anxiety since I was a little kid. Before bed back then, I couldn’t fall asleep because I felt anxious (at time I didn’t know what it was) and my heart would beat the hell out of itself or skip a beat. I would also have chest pains & I couldn’t stop thinking about dieing (I did not spell that right lol) Now, I get that feeling of anxiety when I overthink certain situation such as my health, future, current situation… And then there’s feeling of being lost. Like my mind is full of thoughts and they need to be on its place but they are all over the place & they also need rest as much as I do. I don’t know how to fix that yet but I do know I will. To anyone reading this, don’t give up, I’m praying for u.
    Anxiety I had as a little kid actually had a good side: I started reading before bed which is really good.

  • i went thru a really dark time when i was 7. i didnt think much of it. but the year right after that, i got diagnosed with anxiety. i might have tics. i move my head alot, i shake it for no reason i blink my eyes really hard. its random. idk.

  • DO I HAVE GAD????? I have a gecko and a fish and I get so anxious when I leave the house, may sound stupid but one of the most vivid nightmares in my life ever had a lot about my gecko in it. When I’m bored my brain makes me think of how my grandmother or gecko could have gotten hurt or died. I’m pretty sure I could be diagnosed with moderate to severe insomnia, and even after I do something I overthink how I did and if I was good enough. The muscles in my neck and shoulders are always tight and I always get way to worried about if my best friends want to be friends anymore. Do I have GAD? Please help me out! I’m a teen and I’m scared to confront my family about this. I also think I may have minor clinical depression, even though I have a very prívele she’s life with a loving family and lots of support from friends. I’m scared to confront my family because my brother went through a faze where he faked depression and if I confronted my mom and dad they probably wouldn’t believe me. Please help!!!

  • I have GAD. I hate it. One of the reasons what makes me give anxiety is people being too offensive….like saying certain terms, phrases, or words….

  • Sometimes I just want a hug, a back rub told it’s going to be ok. I just want something to listen free of judgement.

    It’s so overwhelming cause I feel like always doing that for others. It’s too hard for me to find someone who can do that for me.

    I’m constantly worrying and it turns into depression. When I’m hungry it gets worse….

    Food feels like a drug.

  • Is it bad to be going through all the symptoms….
    I get really stressed out from nothing I can get really stressed because I couldn’t find my pen and get mad really easily I also have chest pain and headaches most of the time and back pain I have anger issues and fear of others judging me I’m 18 and I really can’t tell what’s wrong with me.

  • Its interesting cuz they seem to be polar opposite, feeling everything & feeling nothing, but there tied together like an on & off switch is, opposites but one thing. Ive never heard it this way, but it looks like depression is a problem with healthy self connection & anxiety is a problem with having a healthy connection to others. (Ive noticed a connection between people with low empathy & depression, with no anxiety, and selfless people£, low on self love, with high empathy, suffer from anxiety. Most people seem to deal with both. What do you guys think?

  • Thank you I’ve been trying to get my my mom to get me tested and this one proves I might have it I do every single one of these things

  • I haven’t been diagnosed but I think I have depression I’m suicidal and I’ve cut myself but I’m too scared to get help. I don’t have the energy to do anything and it’s gotten so bad that I only eat dinner every day

  • I had a deadline to make that was very very urgent, and some changes came through but the person I needed to respond, wouldn’t get back to me for three hours. Even though there was nothing I could have done but simply wait, I totally flipped out and had a full on mental breakdown. I was just repeating in my head “Just reply to my email. Please” over and over again. In my head, all they needed to do was reply to put a stop to my attack, but alas I was waiting. In their head and rightly so, its something that can be sorted very quickly, but my logic had left the building at that point.

    My panic attacks are mostly set off by other people’s perspection of me. If I miss a deadline, people judge me and think I’m bad at my job, and if I’m bad at my job, I’ll be sacked. I tend to think of the worst possible case scenarios when even if I did get sacked, it wouldn’t end my entire life.

    All in all, I know that this type of panic is ridiculous because the way I react, you’d think I’m in a car, about to be driven off a cliff. I know that my panic and anxiety is ridiculous and people tell me not to worry, but for the life of me I cannot help it.

  • Yep all applies to me personally. But psychotherapy, in my opinion, is far less effective than watching Utube videos. Just my experience

  • I figured out that depression= stagnancy. So I started to move my body and make tiny changes in my surrounding…that was very important!!! Go for a walk around your house. Do it every day for a week and already something changes…

  • Man I just really can’t help but feel like its not that complicated. Higher incidences of depression/addiction etc. etc. etc. in populations with more psycho-social trauma. Its simple. We get sick because we are social creatures who behave in anti-social ways. For all you seeking the cop out, if your going to deny that you have the capacity to make someone feel bad, then by the same token you deny we have the capacity to make someone feel good. Now, we all know thats not true. Who has never really really loved someone?

    I think Jesus said it best when he said, “do unto others as you would have them do unto you”. I mean, we all basically want and need the same things. So its simple. If you wouldn’t like it happening to you, don’t do it to someone else.

  • Great video content! Sorry for butting in, I would love your opinion. Have you heard the talk about Lammywalness Erase Depression Guide (Sure I saw it on Google)? It is a great exclusive guide for beating depression fast minus the normal expense. Ive heard some pretty good things about it and my work buddy at very last got astronomical success with it.

  • Whoa…I have been a heavy ruminator for most of my life and the connection to depression is making sense. I don’t tend to forget much, but rather every detail of my ‘failures’.

  • Yesterday, I checked up into psychiatrist
    I got diagnosed with MADD ( Mixed Anxiety Depression Disease )
    I suffered with them since after mid term test semester
    I felt empty, hopeless, want to die, and bad sleeping but I felt anxious, panic and I became neurotic until now.


  • Considering the type of channel this is it’s rather inaccurate to call it the ‘fight or flight’ response, when it’s actually the five f’s response; fight, flight, freeze, friend, flop. Fight and flight are just two of the five, and people who have anxiety attacks may not experience either so may not realise they are having an attack.

  • Usually I avoid for a long time in hope maybe with time the situation will be less triggering (which doesn’t really work) and then I go for it despite the outcome on my mental state during/after. That’s why getting my driver’s license took me over 3 years (and why I did it late in my life) Last months before passing my driving test was HELL in my head.

  • my resource is violent video games that make me mad, what should I do to change it? I like videogames but it’s not helping but instead hurting me even more.

  • found this somewhere:
    “How strange and foolish is man. He ruins his present while worrying about his future, but weeps in the future by recalling his past. He lives as though death shall never come to him, but dies in a way as if he was never born”
    Imam Ali (ra)

  • If you believe in barbaric ect then I will no longer listen to this channel. I have been in psych hospitals and have seen what this does to people…..it is awful.

  • That large piece of paper you put on your left side, does that represent your suppressed emotions, that is the emotions that are causing your anxiety?

  • Hi Kati! You’re so pretty. Thank you for your uploads, they’ve been very helpful. I’ve dealt with both for the longest time. I always thought that something was wrong with me. You’re truly amazing with your words! How can I sign up so you can be my therapist? ❤❤❤❤

  • I’m the most depressed person I’ve met, and have an absurdly good memory. So much so that while growing up I thought that people were just screwing with me when they couldn’t remember things, or repeat themselves on things that already told me beforehand. Now I come to realize that my memory far surpasses normality. So, not sure what that’s all about. Could I have even better memory if I was happy? That would be frightening.

  • You deserve a relaxed happy life ❤
    If you like join with my ❤❤ I’m awesome ❤❤ channel, Which guidess to a relaxed life step by step ✔

  • When do we start rehabilitating the A-holes of society instead of coming up with ways to heal the damage they cause? Particularly in the workplace…

  • Tried ECT back in 2014. 6 unilateral treatments followed by 6 bilateral treatments. It didn’t work. Some of us are just cursed to never find relief. Now I’ve tried to make peace with the fact that this is how it will be for the rest of my life. I will exist, but I will never truly live again. It’s not fair but life’s not fair and you can either like it or lump it.

  • Is it ok if i get better and then 5 months later I get depressed again, I’m not sure if I got better or I expected that I will get better because I took antidepressants

  • To me shame fuels both my depression and anxiety, shame about my social anxiety, body, career, executive functioning, and traumatic past.

  • Strangely enough, i’ve become more apathetic towards the world the longer the pandemic has gone on. I just don’t care anymore about COVID anymore.

  • Reminds me of a quote by Jonathan Safran Foer: “ You cannot protect yourself from sadness, without protecting yourself from happiness”

  • Having strong sense and feelings of abandonment and desertion, personal betrayals and feeling lost, passed over by others who are oblivious and thus never stop to truly listen to them, having been constantly mocked, lied to and used by those around them who have denied them many, many things.
    That they feel completely invisible and total outcasts and outsiders.
    Those who feel like they are, and will always be, alone since they were born:
    * Esteban Flores (Elena of Avalor)
    * Proxima Starfall (Mysticons)
    * Cassandra (Tangled) and Varian for a time.

    I know I was meant for glory
    But that’s never what my story brings
    And then I keep waiting in the wings
    When you have a passion and a drive
    You expect your moment Center stage to arrive
    Always up with heart ablazing
    Ready to achieve amazing things
    But I’m left waiting in the wings

    Our chances come
    And then I blink
    And they’re gone
    Always overlooked unfairly
    While pretending that it brarely stings
    But it stings
    Yes it stings…

    So, naturally, such people who feel completely worthless in the world would ultimately think of “Crossing the Line!!” even if the, in fact, have been manipulated by one who takes full advantage of just how broken he or she really is.
    So such people would also believe that they have absolutely “Nothing Left to Lose!!!”

  • This was great, been searching for “tips to fight depression” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Have you heard people talk about Hanincoln Nanlivia Framework (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now )? Ive heard some decent things about it and my colleague got amazing results with it.

  • GAD has basically paralyzed my potential as a philosopher. I can’t debate, read extensively, get a degree or handle insults, without risking my hard-earned serenity. All I have left is the vast freedom of writing, within my hopefully-permanent apartment. I do wish, though, I could be able to attain long-term serenity, which seems far beyond my reach.

  • It’s so terrible.I’m so tired of this shit.I always feeling that i’ll die or someone is going to do me bad thing,the freaking heart palpitations,and some people are still not looking serious on this thing

  • My weakness was looking at people and they staring me back, when I walk with my friend,friends and there are group of boys and girls I just look straight with my head up like a queen, before I looked down or the left way and i mummled it was bad. And now I am very confident like a queen. Put your head straight dont look left or right and walk like a queen. Like ur celebrtity, thats why everyone looks at you.

  • Many thanks, been searching for “best way to beat depression and anxiety” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Hanincoln Nanlivia Framework (should be on google have a look )? Ive heard some incredible things about it and my friend got great success with it.

  • When I had my first ever real depression, I would never wish it for anyone else to have. There’s this hopelessness that despite the logical brain telling me of the positive things to think of, I still found them meaningless. There’s this helplessness that made me, despite the logical brain fighting, unable to see anyone or anything that can help. I had to push myself hard to eat any because the brain again told me I had to. I didn’t have suicidal ideation, thanked God, but I really prayed to God despite lil doubts. But, I held on to my faith even with the feelings of helplessness and hopelessnes. It is important to really educate ourselves with mental issues we may face. Thank you MedCircle. You are saving lives for doing this. I wish that those who are struggling with any difficulties in life may find your videos.

  • I wish there was a cure for it I’m tired of going through this everyday the worst part is whenever i try to explain it people still don’t get it

  • dear stranger whoever reads this: i hope you parents live over 100 and you have a successful life and future i hope you pass college and have a good job and you will become a millionaire soon ❤️

  • I get pannic attacks all the time and when I mean all the time I mean all the the time I’m always nervous and while all that is happening it makes my feel like I’m going to throw up my guts out also im 12 it also might be ptsd and also I have such a a bad sleep schedule its so hard for me bc I’m always anxious �� I hate that also this is my dad’s phone and account

  • Appreciate Video! Excuse me for the intrusion, I would love your thoughts. Have you tried Lammywalness Erase Depression Guide (erm, check it on google should be there)? It is a great exclusive guide for beating depression fast minus the headache. Ive heard some super things about it and my friend finally got cool success with it.

  • I was diagnosed with Schizoaffective disorder with depression, severe anxiety, and Asperger’s in 2014 and was on high dose ‘cocktails’ of many different very strong medications for about a year. None of them worked and were making me worse, and I had such a bad reaction to Zoloft that it almost putting me in the ICU and I still have permanent side effects from Seroquel and Risperdal. In 2015 my psychiatrist diagnosed me with multiple drug intolerance and told me there was nothing she could do to help me anymore. My anxiety and hallucinations were getting worse every day, desperate to find a remedy started researching. I read every medical publication and listened to every lecture I could find on anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, and autism disorders, and what I found was astonishing and life changing. I learned that there is a direct connection between the microbiome (the trillions of bactria and fungi and such that live mostly in your gut) and the brain, and when the microbiome is severely out of balance it will manifest as the mental disorders so many people, I included, suffer with.

    I also learned that depression, psychotic, anxiety, and autism medications modulate the microbiome, which alters the communication in the gut-brain axis. A change in diet and removing toxic chemicals from your environment will help more with mental disorders than any medications ever will. It takes an average of around four weeks to modify the microbiome. This is why all these meds take so long to work and also why only about a third of people who take them see any improvement; the other two thirds of people either experience no change in symptoms or end up getting worse, like I did.

    Lookup “Microbial Endocrinology” to learn more about how the bacteria and fungi in your gut talk with your brain.
