If you’ve walked through a college campus or been on any sort of public transportation recently, you will notice funny looking white cords running into everyone’s ears. Thirty years ago, this could have been a scene in some futuristic horror movie. Yet today, iPods and iPhones are more common than wristwatches. So what’s the matter? Lets put aside hearing loss, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and extreme self-indulgence. What keeps me up at night is the glazed eyes and detached look I see in the passing iPod listener. Abstracted from reality, the person seems almost oblivious to the world passing around them. As a homeland security peacekeeper conducts random strip searches, the iPod wearer is the model citizen, patiently waiting his turn to have his privacy raped as his favorite new hit single begins to play.

Hey thanks for all the replies ATS...

I'm glad I made this thread.

I didn't think this thread would attract so much attention, but I guess it goes to show that I'm not alone... and knowing this helps me out tremendously.

I know deep down in my heart that no matter what happens, everything will be alright.
Light will eventually shine over the darkness.

This is my life... and one day it will be over.... but until that day comes I'm just gonna have to soldier on.

But here was what I've decided to do... I've always wanted to see if I could ever get into shape.... To point that it's noticeably different (appearance-wise)

I'm 6'1 and weigh in at a 180.... I'm 30 years old... I'm going to challenge myself this summer physically. Serious changes in diet and exercising.

I think what I've discovered (and obviously known) is that I need to stop poisoning my body... I'm gonna need all the energy I can get because I'm not getting younger... and let me make this clear to anybody reading, these days I don't have a whole lot of energy. I guess when you sit in front of a computer and TV all day it's not very healthy.
Drinking Beer and smoking cigarettes aren't the greatest things too... but I think that's what substances I've been using to self medicate... and that will have to come to an end.

Again ATS... thanks for the help...

Almost every reply I received in this thread (and the PMs) were of importance to me... I didn't provide a whole lot of background on the problems I've dealt with currently or problems I've dealt with throughout the coarse of my life... but collectively the ATS community gave a number of examples of possible solutions to handle the fears we all deal with in life.

Hey people... God has really blessed me... My real fear is that those blessing won't come anymore... Because now I need God more than ever.

Maybe you should try to smoke some ganja, natures own medicine. # the pills. Dont know if it'll help or harm you, since it affects people so differently. But from my own experience it has helped me a bit for the better, and so say people around me.

Im not exactly qualified to answer on this, but thought i should come with an opinion.

Someone in this thread told me to face my fear head on.... head on like they were an enemy.

weed has always made me paranoid.

not anymore.

not anymore.

I could smoke a pound of weed and not have any fear.

meditation is the key.

You do realize that this movie was only about fear?

I have to go into training.

Yes, excellent thread, just about everyody i know feels similar. That cartoon moment before the anvil lands on your head.

Big UP on the weed, it's the only thing that does it for me. Not what i wanted to say though, just worth re-inforcing !!

Bill Hicks, God bless the man, said it best: You got love, and you got fear.

Now i've seen and read a lot from different places and ideas. All that positive thinking stuff makes me ill, like attracts etc, i also completely ignore.

LOVE vs FEAR ... it's THAT simple. When you stop fearing, you start to love, even a boss (example) ... stop fearing him, and you'll see almost immediately you'll love him, probably pity, but you will actually give a damn that he's such a horrible old fool.

peace and love \/,,

To the OP:

The first thing you need to do is find your source of strength. For you, I would assume that your children will do. Meditate on this thing. Know-- do not believe, but know-- how much you care about them, and how far you would go to fight for them, for their safety and survival. Envision the worst possible outcome; perhaps it's the collapse of civilization, and its concomitant security. Find it in yourself to know that, in this worst of all possible scenarios, you still have your life, your strength, and your wits, and that you will use every ounce of each of them to stand up for the things that are genuinely important to you in this world.

Every person is infinitely strong, given the proper motivation; one of the most powerful sources of such motivation is the potential necessity of fighting to protect someone about whom you truly care. See yourself giving your life for them, if you must. Know that this is the worst that this world can do to you.

When you have meditated upon this, when you have made yourself to truly feel the depth of the love you have for your children, the terror and sorrow of losing them, and the fury of the primate within you as it fights to overcome whatever foe or force it is that would take them from you, this world will have nothing more in it for you to fear.

You are strong, and you have the capacity for fearlessness. You must only look within the depths of your subconscious, to the deepest atavistic center of your love, fear, pain, and rage, to find the source of this strength, and harness it.

That said, the weed can't hurt either. It'll help you come to grips with these emotions, and lend you some degree of aid in finding, experiencing, and learning from them.

reply to post by InnerTruths

maybe they gave her the medication because as QUALIFIED specialists they understand the changes that happens in a womans mind when a miscarriage happens...if you are a man, or a woman who has never been through such a trauma, you probably will not understand.
Yes it is normal to grieve, but you cannot "just move on" or "get over it" because there are chemical changes that happen to the body.

But they prescribed the medication, the very next day?

Experiencing emotions is a necessary part of being human. It helps us grow, it prepares us for tribulations in our lives.

It is ok to be sad. It is ok to be scared. It is ok to be giddy. It is ok to have butterflyes and nervousness. It is perfectly normal to feel any combination of those emotions all at once. It is ok, to not even know how you feel.

Sure, if a month from now, she is in a fog, and her other children are suffering, and she needs a kickstart to get back to life, then fine. But not the next day?

On topic: The same goes for the OP. Spend some time on this site, or watching the news, and you will eventually be overcome with dread and doubt and fear. That is perfectly normal, embrace it, understand it. Then, get with a buddy, or your kids, and go to the park, or the pool, or a hike in the woods, and experience joy and innocence, and embrace that as well.

If the sun explodes tomorrow, there isn't a thing you can do about it, except, ENJOY TODAY! Every moment you have with your kids is a blessing. Don't waste it worrying about tomorrow. ENJOY TODAY!

Plan for the Worst, Hope for the Best, and Enjoy the Moment!

So what everyone dies in the physical term, so it seems you are no one special that this only happens to you.

Had to chime in here. It seems to me that OP is feeling something that is disrupting his life. A flippant response such as this may be a truth for you and for many others, but it doesn't seem to be so easy for him. While I am not offering a solution to him, I wouldn't tell him to just deal with it either. Just my opinion. Take it for what it is worth.

OP, there are meds that aren't addictive if you are careful and find a good doc. Meditation is a good option, as has been posted here, and some very careful soul searching as well. I wish you peace, and luck in your journey.

I would suggest to meditation, 1-2 years ago i stumbled across this great site.

The creator and others made threads on there, he kept at it. His goal was to prove that energy and controlling it was real. He finally achieved this by the use of a tool.

I myself have meditated and it truly calms you down. I have played with energy. The first article I ever looked at on that website was psiballs. This is where I learned to control energy and YES I actually felt it. I then moved onto the psiwheel which is "psychokinesis" or as everyone calls it "telekinesis." I tried for weeks to control it properly, the only thing i could accomplish was it continuously moving left and right stuttering as if crashing into each other. I became frustrated and quit.

If you attempt to do these things, only do 1 at a time. You can't do them all at a time, it just won't be proactive.

So uh....go meditate once or twice a day and you should be fine. You can play relaxing music/use natural sounds like a stream of river sound. The feeling of energy is incredible. Not to mention what you can do with it. You can make it do WHAT YOU WANT. If you want it to relieve stress of make you feel happy, just visualize it having that feeling and going into your body, your heart, your soul.

Also a therapist wouldn't be a bad idea as well

Another thing is, try to lucid dream. If you tell yourself over and over at night "it's just a dream and I could do anything I want," then YOU WILL know and control your dream. You can then manipulate these dreams into solving your problem. Dreams are known for solving real life problems. I would also suggest to stop drinking.

Drinking doesn't make anything feel better. It is actually a modifier, whatever you are feeling at the current moment, you will feel x2 or x3 more. It just makes everything worse. So I suggest you stop it, it is not proactive.

1) meditation
2) therapist
3) Lucid dreaming

Good Luck and sincere regards

I think you might have some sort of depression man.
But seriously everyone is scared of some things and a lot of them are in your post, but they dont let it get them down.
So why should you?

I went to my local Mental Health clinic,and they fixed me !

it's called Lexapro, sometimes prescription drugs help people, they did me . I would wake up in the morning half way through a plan to kill myself

that means I was thinking about it before I woke up!

what I learned is this happens your body chemistry is outa wack that's what causes these thoughts, so what is needed is to get it right where it should be for you to be able to think straight

in my case I have an insufficieny of serotonin , so I take Lexapro problem solved. No side effects that I have noticed whatsover just that I'm not sad anxious or panicked anymore YAY!

Get professional help you'll be glad you did
