Thank you for this video. My girlfriend has anxiety and I had trouble understanding in the beginning why she reacted in a certain way. Truly this has increased my compassion l.

I have an anxiety disorder... medicated for it but I have lowered my dose over the last few years. Combined with mindfulness techniques it’s manageable. But the more people like you talk about with a following the better. Thank you :)

ive dealt with anxiety my whole life, and a little extra right now. ive noticed for myself and other people as well, it can stem from your parents un-awareness and lack of ability for understanding. im so glad you posted this.

This video makes me feel better about my experience with anxiety - I’m not alone with my thoughts because other people experience them too. A few months before lockdown I had little to no anxiety and then my dad ended up in hospital and he lives across the country. I had to fly to him but over the last year I had developed a fear of flights, so I spent the flight there and back having a constant panic attack. That whole experience caused a lot of anxiety for me but it was still manageable. And then lockdown hit and my whole routine with school and my dad visiting me was disrupted which gave me more anxiety than ever. I started feeling extreme physical symptoms. I insisted on going to the doctor for a chest X-ray because I mistook my shortness of breath and heart palpitations and chest pain for a pulmonary embolism. (Ridiculous, I know.) I’m also vegetarian now because I’m constantly paranoid that I’ll die of food poisoning from meat because when lockdown started I also had a case of food poisoning. My anxiety has caused me to be paranoid about every single thing. Hearing the news about the explosion in Lebanon today, I had to delete Instagram and avoid the news because I would only overthink every possible scenario of an explosion in my area. I just need to keep convincing myself that I’m only being paranoid and there’s nothing to worry about and hearing about other people’s experience with anxiety makes me feel less alone. Thanks for this video.

I experienced a little bit of anxeity too but it was not a long term one and went away on its own once the thing i was stressed about was done (like an exam) but then suddenly some stuff happend in life which gave me severe anxeity and i was sooo stressed out that i even cried once and i was just like totally done and i cried on my brother's shoulder (felt good) and then after some time i started not giving a damn and i got better. Then slowly the stress got mild and i decided to stop overthinking, having and positive attitude and controlling negative thoughts (main source of panic attacks = stress = anxeity) and it was good i felt alive for a week and now im just having a little tiny bit of anxeity sometimes but now i dont get panic attacks even though i think the most negative thing possible which made me realise i have gotten stronger. Its like once you go through something and overcome it and if it happens again it doesnt have that big of a impact on you and i love it. Though once the summer break gets over and i start my classes again and do a job i will be so busy that these little stresses wont even matter.

Everybody talks about mental illness being the plague of the 21st century but I think we just progressed so much we feel able to open up about mental illness compared to the 20th century

“ Even when things are good, you know it’s not gonna last” YES. That’s the worst part about anxiety. The panic attacks stick strongly in your mind because they are so traumatic.. then on good days I try to embrace them as much as I can because who knows the next time something bad will happen and I’ll be so anxious I can’t hear or read or talk properly.
Im just savoring these good days while I can

TIP: anxiety attacks occur (for me, at least) when I’m suppressing or ignoring other emotions. Also, Matt, you made me cry. I’m 20 years old and have had anxiety for a while, but was only able to admit it to myself recently. I fainted 4 times my freshman hear of college (I was 18) from anxiety attacks. I kept denying that it was anxiety and was sure there was something else wrong with me. Once I confronted it, I was able to control it and I haven’t fainted since. I’m so glad you’re talking about this, it’s amazing to see a role model face the same challenges as you. It helps with the first step of healing, confrontation.

Matt, watching your videos I was always super jealous because you seemed like someone who didn't have to pass through anxiety, and for this reason, you could do all the amazing things you do, but right now seeing that you also have anxiety just proved to me that I can do anything, and that anxiety won't stop me from doing it. Through your vulnerability you helped in my healing process, thank you, my man!

Wow I have so many things I could say. Great Video. I once thought I was having an allergy to my couch in my apartment because I was going through a really rough phase of anxiety that, I too, pushed off. One day I had a complete breakdown convinced I was allergic and somehow found the physical strength to completely remove this couch from my apartment, life it onto the back of my step father's pick up truck and bring it to the dump BY MYSELF. I am a 5'5 petite female lol. a few weeks later....and yearly, depending on what's going on in my life....I have those same "allergies"- they aren't allergies at all...Its my anxiety presenting itself as the top of wrists feeling itchy.

Τalk is very helpfull: Often we think that we can resolve the problems like that alone. Thats not true. Sharing with other peoples help always get throw with the filling tha we suffer alone. Techniques like program every day, exercice help but express our selfes and not hidding the overthinking or anxiety, looking our lives and see what relation, what situation makes us maybe feeling trapp one trauma of the past, a way of living that we dont fit, generrally knowing us , our needs, our fears, our hopes, and step by step changes also reveale often the heart of the problem. Often its a not express anger, a sorrow, feelings that we trying to avoid ,self consciennes also helps. And accept to show how vulnerable some times we are, and focus not to be perfect helps also. I was very infair for a long time with myself , trying to be perfect, and not regognise the efforts , the good resultats cause me a big amount of pain. i do know things and i let myself enjoy without compare me with other people , and have not some much expectations.

I've been living with both depression and anxiety for years now. Its so difficult for me since I feel like my current work and the environment is actually making things worse. Everyday its getting harder and harder to function. Everyday I'm thinking about quitting but I know to myself that I can't do that since I don't have enough money to sustain myself without a job. I am trying to look for other jobs though but until now there's still no luck. Everything is so hard for me. I can't even sleep at night. I feel so alone and I feel hopeless.

It's so great that people are opening up and having an honest conversation about mental health, particularly men who thanks to toxic masculinity are more prone to hide it and told to "toughen or men up". Thank you for talking about it

Personal experience...
What really helped me is to face my fear. Practically speaking, that means: DO NOT ever run away or fight fear/anxiety - face it! By running away (mentally) or fighting it, I only made things worse (= anxiety circle). But what does that mean, to face fear in a state of anxiety? It means to focus on your fear at first (whatever it is) and then to accept it voluntarily. In other words: you surrender to the very thought that's bothering you, you let it in. By practicing this approach - whenever (!) you feel anxious - you will realize that you're not totally out of control - because your fear cannot not force you to fight it! You might feel initial worsening, but after ca. half a minute you will feel relieved. Learining this practice takes time but once you have understood it, you can cope with fear.

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. (1 John 4:18)

Woah dude when you mentioned about the airplane anxiety and anxiety that the good days ain't gonna last I freaking felt it. And I thought I was alone. What I observed is all these happens because of overthinking. I think we need to engineer our innerselves first and little by little. And on the other side worry is normal and ok but not too much which even I face like you. Let's hope the future will be better.

Thank you for being so honest, I have experienced what you are describing for many years when I was in my teens into my 20's, and I still experience now and again, and I felt so lonely as I did not know what it was until I saw a DR, and you are completely right opening up is the best way, I wrote to my future self to remind me that I can get through it and it does get better and I found that really helps me thank you again for being so honest.

I’ve had a panic attack before but not when I was expecting to and I knew that it was one but I didn’t know why I had one. I have the majority of symptoms of anxiety and depression but I haven’t ever been diagnosed so I can’t say I have it. It sucks because no one would help me or does now, and by this I mean the people your told to talk to and I’m told that things will happen but it never did.

Hey everyone, I'm currently trying to find out how one could make the lives of people with anxiety a lot easier ;)
Which is why I have two very simple questions:
1. As someone with anxiety, what are the 2 biggest issues you're dealing with?
2. 2. Regarding having anxiety, what would you wish for more than anything else?
