Anxiety: The Health Crisis
That’s Crippling Us
While rates of depression soar, it’s really
more of a question of pure anxiety, all over the world
The Daily Walk with Miracles, August 7, 2017, by Paul Evans. People are increasingly seeking treatment for mental illness, and rates of diagnosed depression are soaring. Video playlist starts with Don’t Worry, Have Faith…., by Joel Osteen.
See Anxiety. The Silent Crisis Of The Professional BKindred, no date or author: “According to beyondblue it is ‘when anxious feelings don’t go away – when they’re ongoing and happen without any particular reason or cause. It’s a serious condition that makes it hard to cope with daily life.'”
According to Vogue in Anxiety: The Unexpected Health Crisis That’s Crippling Today’s Youth, November 1, 2016, by Rob Haskell:
Psychiatrists are concerned that in trying to protect young people from stress, we may be depriving them of important coping mechanisms.
Why has debilitating anxiety become so common among the young? And why is it still so often overlooked?
Part of the problem is that psychiatry lacks medicines which treat anxiety well. I suffer from almost debilitating anxiety almost all the time. Years ago I took Paxil, but the side effects sickened me. Now I take a medicine called propranerol, and also lorazepam. I find these barely minimally adequate. They make me tired all the time, too. But anxiety is caused deep in the brain’s lowermost down part, called the limbic system. This is where the “fight or flight” reflex originates and is supposed to be quite primitive and hard to control. Partly, it HAS to be mind over matter. You have to get used to the anxiety of modern life and its stresses and persevere. To sei ein mensch. Perhaps mood elevating drugs like elevil would help. I know that my dad, a Yale Ph.D., used to take this.
Since I, personally, have recently suffered a lot from anxiety and even panic attacks, I want to share with you a couple simple techniques which have helped me a lot. I found that my body was somewhat dehydrated and that the main things I needed were simply to keep my body more hydrated — relying on water in particular — and to get more sleep than I thought I needed. Doing those two things alone has accomplished a miracle in my psychological makeup. I feel a whole lot better now. See Natural Sleep Aids & Tips on Dr.Weil.com. The importance of getting at least one longer period of sleep with it’s rejuvenative REM sleep cannot be overstated.
Also see The Observer view on a crisis in mental health, Observer Editorial in The Guardian:
In England, new figures released last week revealed that misery appears to be escalating at an alarming scale. Prescriptions for 64.7 million items of antidepressants – an all-time high – were dispensed in 2016, the most recent annual data from NHS Digital showed. This is a staggering 108.5% increase on the 31 million antidepressants dispensed 10 years earlier.
Is the scale of the rise a welcome sign of progress, more people coming forward for help? Or does it also flag up a rising tide of insecurity and distress, beginning in the very young, that requires a more profound change in society as a whole than individual GPs repeatedly reaching for the prescription pad?
I also think people are more aware of the divisive politics we have today, that it gets more press coverage, and that many common folks are just plain scared by it.
The super-successful technologist Elon Musk, who owns Tesla and the SpaceX programs has recently admitted that he is bipolar and suffers from “unrelenting stress.” How long will it be until mental illness is no longer treated as some kind of crime, and the mentmally ill are afforded some decent sort of accommodation in life? I’m 60 and have lived with society’s prejudices all my life. (Incidentally, the truth is that rates of various unspeakable crimes are slightly LOWER among the seriously mentally ill than they are within society in general. People make the mentally ill scapegoats for so very much where the evil really originates with society as a whole. Before God, this is not right!!) Much relief from my stress and anxiety would definitely come if people would just treat me right. And life can get hard for a psychically gifted man such as I am. But I do no one harm and I expect people to relate to me as an educated and cultured man who loves everyone, particularly the common man, for whom I work and strive on this website.
Are we over-medicating our young people so they can’t learn how to cope? How many of my readers feel they are depressed a lot or would like a higher and better mood to exist and live with? (Leave a comment.)
Don’t let your fears come into existence; don’t dote on your fears, you invite them into your life. It’s a question of the Law of Attraction. 2 Timothy 1:7. Be disciplined in your thought life. Activate your faith, not your fears!
Don’t Worry, Have Faith….
