I've started supplementing magnesium citrate before bed, and my sleep and memory improved. Think anxiety affects us while sleeping too. I'm adding it to the must-have stack.
Hi friend,No I don't. Felt some sort of derealization in the beginning (as if everything wasn't real) but for now just anxiety, depression, tinnitus (since one month).
It's either directly or indirectly related. Directly in sense of still induced physiology changes. Or indirectly due to the excess worry LTC was causing me. Also it's purely body anxiety, not mental. I'm calm and in total control, waiting to be over, but my body is like "OMG we are bombed, oh no there's dinosaurs too, watch out from the lavaaaghggg!" You get the picture...
I just have to pick up on this, because it strikes me how often I see this exact phrase virtually or basic expression and ultimately fear.How long will it take for this to be over?
I developed a form of HPPD in 1996, aged 16 from impure MDMA pills and lsd microdots combined one weekend.I would always see black specs in my peripheral like on the walls in my room. Sometimes i think id see flies, also some halos or flashes of light. This took about 6 months for me to stop caring so much about and now its barely existent. I really think a lot of it is anxiety and you putting these thoughts into your head often. The less i though about it, and less i cared about the less i noticed until its almost fully gone away for me now. Im 11 months in!
I do this a lot, usually in the shower with the hot water beating down on my head. Literally every male in my family is bald or balding, my little brothers are balding. I’m the only one with a decent head of hair, tiny bit of hair loss on the front but still doing pretty damn good compared to most my age.Oh and Matt5280, I do have gastrointestinal issues also which I haven’t been able to get on top of yet. On the hair loss front, I was experiencing that before the ltc but funnily enough it didn’t bother me. It was only after the ltc that the extreme anxiety in the beginning caused me to stress out about it. I did some googling and came across a website that reckon scalp massages were the only effective way to regrow hair. I was super sceptical but the articles were very well written and scientific and he wasn’t selling any products apart from an Ebook, so I decided to give the massages a shot every second day. Might have been coincidence but I literally have a full head of hair now, take that however you like but I thought I’d be remiss not to mention it, as I know how a little thing such as hair loss can be blown out of proportion by the anxiety of ltc. Anyway if you’re interested the website was started by a guy name Rob English, just google his name and ‘scalp massages’ and you should find him.
Whatever you do don’t take finasteride, that shit seems to have screwed up even more people up than ltc.
Can try propranolol, (try 10mg first, could jump up to 40, but advice yourself with cardiologist before) propranolol is beta-blocker and is nullifying the effects of adrenaline. Worked like a charm for me.My anxiety has gotten worse. It is really hard for me to sleep some nights. The weird thing is that I’m not anxious over something, I just get this anxiety feeling on my chest, but it is not triggered by my thoughts. It almost seems like something physical and not psichologycal.
Have any of you been through this?
