Can Anxiety And Insomnia Lead To Mental Health Problems In Future?

  • Sharebar

I am 27 and have difficulty handling stress. I also have very bad insomnia; even with sleeping pills I find it hard to fall asleep! I worry about my future mental health. Could I end up with serious problems when I am older?

    criticize their faults
    of course,
    you want the same treatment

    So, are you awake now? You have a problem. What is on your mind? Your’e an anxoius person , and need to slow down, look arround, relax, life is for living, not stressing, believe me. Dont get to 50, to learn that.x Find a way to be yourself and let go… be a child again… loose yourself in your pleasure… Like you ,I dont sleep, as you can see. Have suffered for many years, I think, to loose yourself in a good book, , if only for a while, is a release., and a nice cup of horlicks.. really helps.

    Diet & exercise will help a lot with this.
    Here are some good ideas:
    1. Do something that gets your heart rate up a bit like, walking, running, biking, and swimming.
    2. Eat Whole, Organic foods like: Broccoli, Cabbage, Organic Brown Rice, Beans, Spinach, Sweet Potato, Apples, and other fruits and vegetables in their Natural State.
    3. Avoid eating corn, white bread, white rice, white potatoes, candy, sodas, chips, and anything else that you already know you shouldn’t be eating.
    4. Drink clean water as your beverage of choice. Avoid Fruit drinks and fruit juices (unless YOU juice them yourself)
    5. Stop smoking, drinking beer & wine, and drinking coffee.
    6. Get 8 hours of sleep each night.
    7. Hang out with people who want to be healthy.
    8. Avoid anything with High Fructose Corn Syrup.
    Tone up the muscles:
    1. Join a gym and get a trainer.
    2. If you’re short on cash, start a light stretching & yoga regimen.
    3. Do push-ups, and light dumbbell curls for the upper body.
    4. As I said above, walk, run, swim, and or bike
    5. Take an aerobics class, a yoga class, or some other fitness class.
    6. Join the local YMCA..
    7. Buy or borrow this book by Bill Pearl called GETTING STRONGER.
    In the book, he describes everything you need for a great fitness plan.
    Mental Health:
    1. Get a friend to talk to each day about your feelings.
    2. If you have some money or insurance, get a counselor to talk to.
    3. Learn how to meditate.
    4. Join a support group for the issue you’re dealing with.
    5. Ask your Higher Self (or God) for guidance.
    6. Start keeping a diary or journal about your feelings & thoughts.
    7. Write a ‘gratitude’ list every night.
    8. Do something that makes you happy each day like: listen to your favorite music, draw, paint, write, or anything creative.
    9. Do something for someone else who needs help.
    10. If the above suggestions don’t improve your mental health, talk with your therapist about the possibility of taking some medication.
    Take care of yourself

    Talk to your doctor about discontinuing the sleeping pills and instead prescibing an anti-depressent (an SSRI) like Lexapro, Effexor, or Celexa to help you deal with the stress and control anxiety. Also request an anti-anxiety med that you can take at bedtime such as Lorazapam or Alprazolam instead of a sleeping pill, I have problems sleeping at night too. I was taking .5 mg of Alprazolam, it didn’t really do the job, so the doctor discontinued and prescribed Lorazapam 1 mg along with 40 mg a day of Celexa. Works wonders, I have an EXTREMELY stressful job in healthcare as Administrator to 2 assisted living facilities and now I sleep like a baby and am handling the stress of my job and life with 2 little ones at home so much better. Hope this helps
