“Life Gave Me The Biggest Beating Imaginable, And It Wasn’t Until I Learned The Lesson That I Succeeded.”
Sometimes when you hear the health anxiety journey and recovery story first hand it adds much relief. Medications, anxiety support teams, and setbacks are something every health anxiety sufferer thinks of and experiences in their journey. Which is the inspiration behind this anxiety guy podcast episode.
The Definition Of Insanity Is Partaking In The Same Patterns And Habits And Expecting A Different Result
Which is what I did for many years. Then I realized that something had to give, so I took my doctors advice and started antidepressants and anti anxiety medications. Let’s just say they both sucked royally for me. The other confusing arena is the anxiety support teams:
- Who to turn to?
- Who Will Listen?
- And For goodness sake who has some half decent advice based around helping me to actually progress?
Of course we can’t forget the inevitable, setbacks. Everyone has them during their health anxiety journey towards recovery. Why? Because your subconscious mind refuses to accept anything that doesn’t fit your current beliefs and values. So as a whim, calmly, in the back of your mind it says to you:
“You’re Expecting Me To Take This New Thought Or Skill Set You Just learned, And Run With It With No History Of Success Behind It?”
Welcome to the topsy turvy world of convincing your subconscious mind that you are a healthy, empowered, capable, loving, grateful, and fearless person. It takes time, it takes tears, and it takes some pain to re-condition your mind and to get it to be something you can rely on again, instead of your own worst enemy.
