TAGP 20: How Bali Helped Release Me From Health Anxiety

May 23, 2016

Inhealth anxiety trip to Bali episode #20 of The Anxiety Guy Podcast I want to share the absolute crazy move myself and Robyn took to Bali. Having been given a decent tennis coaching opportunity in Bali, we were faced with 3 tough challenges:

  1. How would we take care of our 1 and a half year old baby in Bali?
  2. How would we get along with the locals?
  3. How the heck would I deal with my health anxiety, knowing there were no hospitals and emergency  calls possible?!?!

The third one was one that made me really anxious. Reason being I was the Hypochondriac that called the emergency guys to come save me from an impending disaster due to my panic attacks, almost on a weekly basis. It wasn’t cheap. And it kept me in my comfort zone permanently.

I could have either feared the trip to Bali greatly. Or I could look at it as the first time I could face my fears. If anxiety and panic attacks did show up, I needed to look within myself to learn how to deal with it. I needed to learn to stop running from my fears, and learn how to overcome my health anxiety once and for all.

The 3 things you will learn from this episode are:best self development tips

  • How fear CAN be faced and moved through
  • The best way to confront your deepest fears
  • How to stop coping and start recovering from health anxiety

    hi dennis.. i would ask about setback.. whts the does it mean excatly… is it that i feel im undercontrol with my anxiety and all of sudden it peaks … and i get frustrated…or .anxiety is like a wave sometimes comes in high rage then its goes down and ill have to be ready.bcz it comes in deffernt symptoms and shifts..and dennis how did you manage your self with depetsonalisation .as i checked in many websites….just ignorance and exercise and live my day is the cure..and it will remains as long as you have anxiety and fear bcz its protecting you and giving you break … third thing.. i have friend who had health anxiety and fear he overcomed it iin 2002 it was having it for 2 years . he was having fear of heart problem palpetation and fear and thinking about death . when he did checked up and told him thete was nothing wrong with him he felt relife and his anxiety is gone ..i was telling him i have same problem heart and numbness in body and actually i did alot of check more than my friend did and not only once but 3 times .and get bettre for sometime but later when symptoms shift i get doubt i say to my self there is something wrong plus negative scary thoughts comes while im sleep or alone.. my friend told me as you said dennise everybody recovers in different time and we all have deferent personality maybe u are more sensitive it takes longer time than i did to recover . soo what do you think as some one been through anxiety . thanks i hople my questions are helpfull for others .
