Well damn, pretty sure I have GAD; I’m anxious all the time.
Meditate with this
Peace and Blessings. Hope all are ok.
Hey brother do you have any links I can check out about some of the help your giving to the little brothers around your community? Or is this black men outreach and words of rejuvenation just for you know, thecoli brehs
I had a site but I took it down. Was getting too busy to keep it up. At the moment this is a coli thing. I'd love to expand it. Did you have people you wanted to direct to a resource?
Can we get an update on this breh?
Good thread brehs, for anyone with anxiety and depressed mood try these things. 1) exercise- research shows to be as effective as medication- and even better if you can do exercises with one or more other person ( it helps with the communal aspect of depressed mood and anxiety) 2) omega 3 fish oil- again very clinically effective at helping mood. 3) Chammomile tea- again clinically effective and I don’t know the research for other teas, this is specific for chammomile tea. 4) look up the mammalian diver reflex- but it entails filling the sink with cold water, you can add ice to make it colder. Then hold your breath and submerge your face in it and stay there holding your breath as long as you can. When you remove your head your feelings of anxiety will greatly decrease.
I been going to therapy over 6 months and man I couldn't be more thankful. My therapist has pretty much taught me how to rationalize my anxiety away. I don't really see a "need" to keep going but I'm gonna keep going anyway because I can slowly see my self improvement through this. If you guys know anyone who struggles with anxiety/depression I'd really recommend they give at least one therapy session a shot. You never know how impactful it could be
Great update bro.
My best friend who was like a brother hung himself last weekend....his funeral is today.....
Did he show signs of depression? Did he talk about suicide before hand? How are you processing it?
That's the thing...I moved outta state and we lost touch....I kinda felt like it was my fault since I was the only one he could talk to...I'm good tho, I dont care why or how he died it's the fact that he dead that hurts....
gotta start somewhere
