Posted 18 August 2012 - 04:23 PM

I'm 29, jobless, no car, i do however have money coming in from an incident at birth, but i live at home with my mom ( yes i do contribute financially ) it's just i'm afraid to do anything that may flare up the anxiety such as getting involved with a girl, afraid it'll change who i am and have me believe i'm too good to spend time with my siblings because i'd have a girl in my life.

Me and my mom aren't close at all, but for some reason i think if i go out, get a job, get a girlfriend that it'll cause problems, i know i shouldn't be thinking this way with me being an adult and all, but i'm so confused on what to do.
I'm also having a very hard time getting myself to the dentist for procedures because i'm extremely scared of death and whatnot so as you can tell i'm a mess.

P.S. i'm not a bad looking guy, but i can't seem to get girls to notice me atleast i don't think they do.

Too much thinking Olli!

All those thoughts and fears aren't real. They're just a swarm of invisible mental patterns swirling about your head.

Drop each and every one of them as soon as you notice they have arisen. Just don't take the thoughts seriously and let them go.

Practice doing this by beginning to move in the direction you want to go and keeping an eye out for these saboteur thoughts which you can guarantee will pop up again and again to try to stop you from changing.

And don't try to do too much at once. Focus on going to the dentist first, or getting a job, or going out, or making friends or finding a girlfriend, or whatever, but don't try to solve all your issues at once.

Easy-peasy.

Just relax, stay focused on relaxing, let go of your thoughts when they arise, and make a start.

This seems an odd comment to me: "...... getting involved with a girl, afraid it'll change who I am and have me believe I'm too good to spend time with my siblings because I'd have a girl in my life". How do you make a connection between having a girlfriend and being too good to spend time with your siblings?

Secondly, people don't die at the dentist's ................. do they? If you are afraid of pain then you need to discuss that with your dentist. If he isn't sympathetic then find one who is. I found the best way to approach this was by talking to my dentist before I sat in the treatment chair (a place where I felt vulnerable and at a disadvantage). I found a dentist who was willing to give me a painkilling injection before doing anything else. I also found hypnosis helped me through treatment.

Does your mum depend on you a lot to do stuff around the house and shopping?

You are not a mess, but you do have some things that need to be clarified and then faced squarely. Get your thoughts out of your head and onto paper then you can look at them properly and decide exactly which ones need dealing with. Write out all the possibilities and then decide which ones are realistic.

Good Luck :D

Life is all too much ............................................. and not enough.

It is only when you form your question precisely and accurately that you receive the true answer.

I had anxiety problems for ten years.I did had my bad times.All i did was...i stopped caring what others think about me.
Slowly that way i recovered.I know not all people with anxiety can do this.Now iam stronger,but as i had it for that long,i wasted days in home.So i dont have proper qualification.I do have job problem.

Welcome to UM Olli. :yes:

Say, one thing you didn't mention, do you have any close, similar-age friends that you talk with?
You said you don't have a car, but are you able to get out, either on your own or with friends, to other places than home?

In any event, you have friends here. :clap:

Posted 18 August 2012 - 07:24 PM

Thanks everyone and sorry about my rant, i guess my question is does anyone see me getting a girlfriend any time soon? and will i cure anxiety on my own without any health risks? i think that is what's keeping me from facing my fears.

My mom doesn't depend on me too much, but i do pay bills and such as well as help take care of my siblings, I'm hoping as a young guy that my future will get better.

A "relationship" with a girlfriend is natural and normal.
If you feel the need and do not persue it, it will actually increase your anxiety.
As apparently it is.

Talk with your siblings, if you must, but really, it's none of their business regarding your personal life.
Losing "bond" is rediculous, as it should in fact strengthen it as you would set an example of normality.

I can relate to the teeth..
I had bad teeth, and put it off for a long time for fear of pain, not death..
Eventually I made that first move and got them pulled.
It amazed me how much better I felt within myself afterwards. Emotionally, I felt stronger. Health-wise I felt better. My confidence in my own self increased too.

Issues with bad teeth can be the cause of a lot of health & emotional problems.

Anyway, just thought I'd share this..
This is not a psychic reading by the way. It's just my own experience.. Something to ponder..

Ollie,

Do loud noises bother you?

Does your anxiety with change extend to other areas of your life... Like Mabey routs to the grocery store or some other thing.

When you were in high school what was your peers reactions to you?

I know these things seem random, but they might be relevant.

"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

That's what confuses me, i can go to the store without a problem, talk to strangers with no problem, but Dentists, good looking girls, new places, and crowds get me very anxious, but after i get sick from it it's like i was never nervous in the first place.

In school i was well liked with a few bullies, but nothing too serious, it's mostly anticipation that triggers the anxiety and if i return to that same location or talk to that same person a few days later there's no anxiety so yeah it confuses me.

Loud noises don't bother me at all

Olli, there are simple energy techniques which may be able to assist with gently releasing your anxiety.  I highly recommend TAT (Tapas Acupressure Technique), here's a link to the how-to:  http://www.tatlife.com/booklet.  Just feel the yucky feeling as intensely as you can, then put your hands in the proper position and allow the feelings to drain.

There are other energy release techniques such as stress release and EFT (Emotional Freedom Technique), but TAT to me is the simplest and most effective for starting out.  You can drain a lot of negative stored energy without even knowing the source and, once released, the yuk feelings won't come back.  Techniques such as these ar deceptively simple and can be life-altering.  I hope this is something that can assist you in moving fearlessly forward in your life.

Namaste.

Yeah, anxiety can be a real bear.

I suffer from it, on a hard clinical level, and I find little relief other than intoxication or CNS depressant medications(ativan and such)

I seriously wish Olli the best.
Perhaps I should also try what you've suggested above.

I have anxiety as well and take medication, but energy techniques do make a big difference for me.  TAT is great for releasing imprints - for example, every time you remember a certain event where you made an ass out of yourself, you still carry those yucky feelings.  Using TAT, you can drain the yucky feelings, the energetic imprint of the event, and it won't come back.

Three other good tricks to use for anxiety: 1) stress release - hold your palm across your forehead; you can also bring in healing colors if this feels right to you; 2) gently tap the tips of your fingers just over the middle of your eyebrows; 3) cross your arms and tap the tips of your fingers on either side of your sternum.

Finally, check out Donna Eden's 5-minute energy routine on YouTube.  It's a great way to start your day and get your energies all flowing properly.  This also helps with anxiety.
