Dealing with social anxiety may take efforts. But it’s worth to try. Most of the time I feel this anxiety increases as I meet people. I would like to share my experience about dealing with social anxiety.
feeling like I am going to faint, my heart will race and I get hot. I went to the doctor and they ran blood tests. Now they are sending me to a cardiologist. After looking up my symptoms it kind of sounds like anxiety but I am not sure. Since I ... went to the doctor I keep feeling this tight pressure in my chest and I keep crying for no reason. Does this sound familiar?
This is how I live, but I can survive this things, I believe with my self. This how I survive this things :
1. Track Your Mood
Anxiety attack can be puzzling for some. You may feel that it comes out of nowhere and caused by nothing. If you feel like that, then chance is you still don’t have a thorough understanding about you and your anxiety.
The first step for how to stop having an anxiety attack completely is by understanding how it attacks you. You can do this by tracking your mood.
When you track your mood for a certain period of time, you will see a pattern. The pattern is different for each person, but it tells the fundamental thing to fight anxiety attack: the anxiety trigger.
Here is how it works. First, prepare a journal. Second, every end of the day, write your activity for that day and add the emotion you feel during each activity. For example, you can write it like this:
When you have filled the journal for certain period, start noticing the activities around the time when you feel anxious. Maybe, you get anxious every time after being called in by your boss – no matter what the reason is. Maybe, you get anxious every time you do activities that make you talk in front of a group.
After knowing the trigger, you can help yourself to treat your anxiety better. For example, you can start to attend support group for people who want to be able to do public speaking. Or maybe, you can start to prepare your report and answer before your boss call you.
That way, you’ll be more prepared when something triggers your anxiety, and you won’t experience anxiety attack.
2. Differentiate Bad Coping Method
If you find yourself in this situation, you should stop as quickly as possible. Bad coping method can relieve yourself from anxiety for a moment, only to plunge you deeper later. If you choose bad coping habit, you’re blocking your own way to recover from anxiety.
This is one answer for how to stop having an anxiety attack. You have to be able to form a healthy anxiety coping habit from now on and separate yourself completely from bad coping habit. Bad coping habit including:
– drinking alcohol
– eating emotionally
– isolating yourself
– harming or cutting yourself
– torturing your thought by keep imagining the worst
3. Build Daily Habit: Exercise

(NaturalNews) While their name implies that their sole purpose is the treatment of depression, it turns out that doctors are prescribing antidepressants for an assortment of other medical problems as well. In fact, a Canadian study recently found that just over half of antidepressant prescriptions written by Quebec doctors in the last ten years were for depression. This begs the question: What were the other nearly 50 percent of antidepressant prescriptions for?
Antidepressants are also routinely given for insomnia, fibromyalgia, obsessive-compulsive disorders, chronic pain, migraines and panic disorders. However, doctors also prescribe them for a number of "off-label" conditions that they have not been approved to treat. The researchers discovered that two thirds of antidepressant prescriptions for problems other than depression were written for off-label – and thereby unapproved – purposes.
This could help explain why antidepressant use in the U.S. skyrocketed by 400 percent in the years from 1988 to 1994 and 2005 to 2008. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that 11 percent of adults and teenagers now take antidepressants, so this is far from a small problem.
Making matters worse is the fact that doctors are blindly writing these prescriptions with no proof whatsoever that they can even help with these off-label conditions. The idea of doctors prescribing medications to people when they have not been proven to work is a bitter pill to swallow indeed.
McGill University epidemiology and biostatistics professor Robyn Tamblyn said: "The thing that's of concern here is that when prescribing for conditions other than depression, often these are for indications such as fibromyalgia and migraine where it's unknown whether the drug is going to be effective, because it's never been studied."
In their study, Tamblyn and a group of colleagues examined electronic medical records by primary care physicians between 2006 and 2015 in Quebec. During that time, just 55 percent of the antidepressants prescribed were for depression.
Among the more than 100,000 antidepressant prescriptions studied, 18.5 percent were for anxiety disorders, 10 percent were for insomnia, 6 percent were for chronic pain, and 4 percent were for panic disorders. A number of the conditions cited – including ADHD, menopause, migraines and digestive problems – represented unapproved uses. Some doctors even prescribed them for PMS, sexual dysfunction, bulimia and urinary problems.
While it might be tempting to believe that no harm can come from giving people "happy pills," nothing could be further from the truth – whether they are necessary or not. Antidepressants have a number of rather scary side effects, and raise one's risk of heart disease, breast cancer and type 2 diabetes.
What's the worst that could happen? While side effects such as headaches and indigestion are more of a nuisance than anything else, these drugs have also been linked to suicide, and more than one mass shooter has been on antidepressants. That is exactly why the use of antidepressants should be reserved for the most extreme cases of depression, and only when natural treatment methods have failed.
The World Health Organization recently responded to research that was published in the European Journal of Neuropsychopharmacology showing that antidepressant use among young people rose dramatically in several countries between 2005 and 2012.
WHO Director of Mental Health Dr. Shekhar Saxena said that the off-label use is of particular concern: "These are medicines which have not been tried amongst young people, have no justification for being used widely in young people. There are legal regulations and professional guidelines and off-label use of drugs many times crosses both of them. That's something the World Health Organization is very concerned about."
Of course, as long as pharmaceutical companies are out there exerting their pressure essentially unchecked, the number of antidepressant prescriptions being written by doctors is only likely to go up rather than down. Perhaps the most alarming aspect of this epidemic is the fact that many of the problems doctors are handing these pills out for can be alleviated through lifestyle changes like regular exercise, a healthy diet, meditation and spending more time with nature.

(NaturalNews) Are we putting too much pressure on our kids? According to Natasha Devon, the UK government's mental health expert, we are. Speaking at a meeting of the Headmasters' and Headmistresses' Conference, which represents private school heads, she said that our children are in danger of being wrongly "medicalized" to treat depression symptoms when all they need is better counseling and less weight put on their shoulders.
According to ChildStats.gov, child depression has a significant impact on future life. It can affect school and work performance, impair peer and family relationships, and exacerbate the severity of other health conditions such as asthma and obesity.
In 2013, about 11 percent of U.S. children, aged between 12 and 17, experienced a major depressive episode. For adolescent girls, that number even went up to 16 percent.
Natasha Devon has been working in schools since 2007 and has talked to as much as 500 students a week. She discusses topics such as body image, banter, bullying and mental health. While she claims that there will always be children who are "genetically destined" to have a mental illness, she concedes many are just responding to things happening to them.
"If a child is being bullied and they have symptoms of depression because they are being bullied, what they need is for the bullying to stop. They need to feel safe again. They don't necessarily need anti-depressants or therapy."
She notes that today's children face greater pressure than any other generation. Cyberbullying, online p 0 r n and heightened exam pressures are all putting extra weight on their shoulders. Antidepressants do not solve these problems.
"It's my belief that many of these struggles could be avoided if we get our approach right," she said, as reported by the Daily Mail. "And if we don't, we're giving with one hand and taking away with the other. And we run the risk of medicalising childhood. ... You cannot apply an adult amount of pressure to a child's brain and expect them to cope."
When we were growing up, we surely had some pressure to deal with, too. But one needs some positive stress to accomplish things, right?
However, Devon said that today's children have more things that they don't need, and they have less of what they do need. Parents work long hours, and family life is limited to TV time. Schools have become very competitive, and being average or just good won't cut it anymore. And the ever present accessibility to the internet complicates the situation as well.
"Online, children face cyber bullying, advertising which tells them they're not good enough, p 0 r n o g r a p h y, airbrushed lives," Devon said.
Health services and councils are often failing to provide support for these issues. As a result, millions of children worldwide are on antidepressants, when they should just be getting the right help to relieve the pressure put on their shoulders.
"We need to feel safe, we need to feel nurtured, and we need to feel valued," Devon said. "And if we don't meet these basic needs in our children, we risk them growing up not only without a sense of passion but also with low self-esteem. We need to ask ourselves what is causing mental health problems in the first place."
