    I am interested in getting help for my insomnia and seeing what is causing me to have difficulty sleeeping in the first place. How much does it cost for a visit the clinic and what is the average time frame of your treatment plan.

    I struggle with anxiety and depression every day almost. Some days I am okay but still feel as if this is taking over my life. I do try to factor in as many things as exercise, meditation, essential oils etc. Depending on the situation once the anxiety sets in its hard to control. It is like a tunnel vision, nothing on the outside of the tunnel can stop it.

      HI Jillian, have you considered the brain wellness spa’s Treatment program the emotional empowerment program? I suffered on and off for most of my life chronic anxiety, the out of control spiral of thoughts etc. I can honestly say without a doubt I am on the other side of that beast and i wouldn’t be where i am without the brain spa treatments.

    I have bouts of anger which has increased with age. I am 54.

    My anger is a cumulation if the worlds issues, disrespect, stupity and the evil people do.

    This has proliforated over my life where I tend to hold it in then something triggers snd I get angry again.

    Any advice please

    Thank you

      Hi Rob, Temperament is often genetic so you inherit your temperament from either your mothers side or your fathers. In most cases anger is exacerbated when the brain is In Survival patterns of behaviour, which is that fight/flight response, so someone with anger issues will trigger and become irrational in their thinking and this happens because the brain is intolerant, frustrated and negative.

      The secret to breaking free from anger is to accept people and your circumstances so you let go and not hold onto resentment and hate. If you find that difficult to do and you need extra help, in July if you visit our website there will be a downloadable program to help reduce your triggers so you don’t get angry as often. This program will help support you while you learn to accept people for who they are.

        i easily got angry and doing some stupid things sometimes. sometimes, it’s helping me and sometimes it doesn’t.

        whenever i got angry, it causes another problem and then after my oytburst, i suddenly feels like crying and regretting of what i’ve done.

        and i don’t know how to control it, sometimes, i suddenly got angry without knowing the real reason of me being angry.

        so any advice? don’t know what to do. i’m only 15 years old and i’m having a hard time dealing with my anger issues.

    My mother (age 62) has the same problem- her levels of anxiety shoot up in the evening – she sweats , says her heart rate is high and feels as though blood gushing into her head.

    My anxiety is extremely high in the evenings especially weekdays when my kids and husband go to sleep and I’m alone with my thoughts that alone scares me don’t know why. The anxiety is so overwhelming I end up crying myself to sleep

      Marissa I’m right there with you. My husband and I are empty nesters and he falls asleep early and easily. I find myself stressing whenever he starts to doze because that means ill be alone with my thoughts, many of which are sad because I’m a little obsessed with mortality since I turned 60. Mostly sad thoughts and feelings. I’ll have to look at this more closely. I’ve never thought of it that way until you worded it so well. Thank you.!

      I went to the health food store today to get something for energy level. I cannot complete a job, can barely get started. Yet I have this anxious feeling. I go from one chair to another or just go to bed and sleep most of the day. The lady who works there said ” when you get up in age, your Adrenalin Glands get thin and worn… She gave me a natural vitamin called Adrenal Health by Gaia . I’ve just started it, so I don’t know if it works yet. It would be worth looking up information on this. The questions she ask were 1. Do you feel tired 2. Do you feel anxious
      3 Do you have restless sleep. 4. while just sitting do you feel jittery. I have all those symptoms.

    I have just resolved my evening anxiety with CBD oil, the legal form of Hemp. It has resulted in a feeling of just being of normal mood, as per most of my day; I sleep soundly and any arthritic pain has gone.

    Honestly I would stay away from cannabis all together. Depending on how severe your anxiety is cannabis is not for everyone and that includes CBD. In my case someone had given me CBD oil and it gave me such a body buzz and sedative effect that it triggered my anxiety for feeling out of control of my body. There are studies that people who already have an anxiety disorder should stay away from cannabis. Don’t get me wrong I used to love smoking weed but that was before I started having panic attacks. Now I can’t even touch it because it will trigger my anxiety.

    Hi,

    I’m not sure why but I can get extremely angry when things don’t go my way (not in general terms, as in when someone says I can’t have something) but I train horses and sometimes when I don’t understand the way to fix a problem or I make a mistake and the horse stops cooperating I can just lose my mind and get super angry. Is there any way to help that?

    Good Morning all depressed or sad people out there like me , i have one question, do you have same feelings on weekend’s morning or this happens only on week days..
    MY week starts on Sunday , So i just hate Sundays , i feel blue on Saturdays evening. I believe depression is not the right word for my feelings.
    My office timings are 7:30 AM to 5:00 PM , my office is an hour drive from home , so all these things makes me feel sad i believe. I am pre-diabetes so having a good breakfast or lunch is another issue, i am totally junk lover , so moving away from carb and sugary stuff is another fight .

    I was diagnosed with an Anxiety Disorder and Depressive disorder a few years ago. I’m 25, and every night I struggle with this. My anxiety can get so bad, it will force me to pull all nighters, or just spiral into a midnight panic attack. I’ve started practicing Yoga and Deep breathing techniques, which do help a little. I find that CBD helps sometimes, but not always. I’ve found that there are many medications and natural herbs out there, but anxiety is all in the head. Which is why I stick to deep breathing and just reading at night. Taking anything is my last option, unless it’s pretty bad. I hope this can help someone.

    I found this very helpful. I realise how I’m not helping myself prior to bed, especially phone games, alcohol and depressing novels. Going to try and be more loving towards myself by decreasing alcohol, stop gaming at least an hour before bed and to go to bed earlier and read. I have downloaded both bedtime stories and meditation which help me fall asleep. listening to a story you already know helps to – Thanks Harry Potter 😉

    I suffer from pretty severe anxiety with feelings of being dissociated from my body and reality. Like a lot of people in this thread it definitely gets worse at night. I don’t do well with psychoactive medications or sedatives and I don’t want to try CBD for reasons mentioned in other postings. A few years ago my PCP recommended a beta blocker, in my case propranolol. Usually used for hypertension and also for performance anxiety/social phobia I have found it also helps with my general anxiety. The stress that the initial onset of anxiety brings on activates our fight/flight system and makes the anxiety worse, a snowball effect. A beta blocker acts to reduce our circulating stress hormones such as adrenaline(epinephrine) and noradrenaline(norepinephrine). Although propranolol doesn’t act directly(psycho-actively) on the emotions/thoughts associated with anxiety, it does reduce blood pressure, heart rate, muscle tension, breathing rate, etc., associated with anxiety which significantly reduces the feelings associated with anxiety. I still wake at night but am able to get back to sleep pretty fast. Propranolol is not a fast acting medication like benzodiazepines so must be taken 1-2 hours before the anxiety precipitating event, like going to bed. Beta blockers are not habit forming and have relatively few side effects. There are some medication interactions and they are not for everyone and as it is a prescription medication you need to consult with your primary care physician. It has really worked for me.

      My anxiety started from January and i strongly believe it was caused by use of blood pressure medication called Amlodipine 10mg, after 2.5years of use of this medication something changed in my neuro system, because i didnt have anxiety problems before that. My anxiety starts around 5pm, why at that time???it start slowly with shaking and tremors, cold hands, difficulties to swallow, then fear and bp spikes and health anxiety , slow breathing under heavy duvet helps a little, i was prescribed with propranolol which removed some physical parts of anxiety like tremors and rapid heart rate , but psychological side of anxiety is still there. I dont know what to do, its a horrible to live like this its disturbing my daily life, especially with my family, children i feel horrible for that.

    Hi, I’ve been having a really hard time getting over and moving on from my ex. She did leave me, and yes I could had done more to help but instead I didn’t and it pushed her to leaving. I miss her a great deal and we talk from time to Time and she will say she wants to come back when she is fighting with her bf but always backs out. We dated for 6 months and she has been with him for 2 years. Also she says they fight a lot and he puts her down and she don’t feel loved, or beautiful and she feels lonely I always have my hand out hoping she will take it but she won’t. What makes him so different then me, I changed my whole life after she left got a real good paying job started being responsible just over all a better guy and I absolutely adore her, I would do anything for her and I just want me and her to build a life together a better one fire both of us. But I feel like she just tells me a few things and flirts just to keep me on the hook Incase something happens like I’m her rebound. I just don’t know, I want her back and she knows it. Every time I reach my limit she talks to me and gives me hope each time when I’m about to leave. I just don’t understand what’s wrong, why pick the guy who puts you down vs the guy who has changed his life in hopes she would come back. I just don’t get it.

    Everything I hear and read suggests to (in SOME form or another): “seek support from friends and/or family”. This depresses me EVEN MORE, as I was a foster child and was moved around (8 high schools) so much that I didn’t have the opportunity to make friendships which would last into adulthood, and while in college I was working FT AND raising children (once again – not able to make friends who may eventually be part of a “support network”). I have NO ONE to talk to/turn to. I realize I’m an outlier (and bc of that will likely not be alive much longer) but I wish scientists, psychologists, journalists, etc. would take the small number of people like me into account rather than ASSUMING EVERYone MUST have SOMEone. Ideally that WOULD be the case. Unfortunately, it’s not… ESPECIALLY not now (2021) when most people are even MORE focused on only themselves and their close family/friends than they were prior to the pandemic, to the detriment of those of us in need of GENUINE friendships; friendships which could LITERALLY save lives.

    My anxiety gets worse in the late afternoon. If I’m distracted from myself by some activity or with someone else, I don’t get anxious. I don’t have a problem with feeling out of control of my body or fear of dying or being ill. I have a fear of growing old alone with no one to have fun with or have a long conversation with, etc. I have a fear of outliving all my relatives and few friends, since it gets harder to make good friends as I get older and am not out as much. And then there’s the whole thing about looking older and feeling people look at you as if you’re mean, when all you’ve got is RBF. And sometimes my ambitions for the day are too much for the level of energy available, or I run into an obstacle in a project and it’s so frustrating when I have to quit. Not getting things done makes me despondent and hopeless in the evening sometimes.
