TAGP 72: My Health Anxiety Journey Through Medications, Support, And Setbacks

July 10, 2017

health anxiety journey podcast“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.

In Episode #72 Of The Anxiety Guy Podcast I Share:

  • How one anti anxiety medication almost led me to taking my own life
  • Why most health anxiety support people fail to actually help
  • How you can shift your mindset so that setbacks become a positive thing

    “Insanity Is Partaking In The Same Patterns And Habits And Expecting A Different Result” – this is so simple, but so true! I think many people get caught in a cycle of bad habits and routine, as well as stuck in their comfort zones. They end up just repeating the same thing over and over again, and wondering why they are making no progress, or worse, falling even more into a life of depression or anxiety. I guess make changes can be scary, but if something is not working, then you need to be the change you want to see, and do something about it, otherwise it’s not going to go away!
