Drinking and certain drugs (marijuana) would likely help.

Don’t go straight for hard liquor, start with beer or wine. I wouldn’t waste money on a doctor.


He is 17 years old, please dont play around by throwing out the liquor idea. That can cause more problems, have some perspective on where the young man is at.

OP- Please do yourself a HUGE favor and start exercising regularly and get outside in nature. These should be your first two steps. While youre out in nature your mind will begin to go quiet. Its very healing. Consider using CBD oils before pharmaceuticals. Remember that you have a ton of options in life and keep an abundance mindset. Read Eckhart Tolle, he is one of the most brilliant minds of our time that can give you many answers. Youll grow from this and become stronger, trust me.


Best advice in thread imo.

Tell me about eckhart tolle .


Always willing to help. Life is a continuous growth process. Mr. Eckhart Tolle is a man that I dont have enough words for. Ive seen his stuff transform lives and he had an incredible impact on mine.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Power_of_Now

Read this book. Youtube him. Listen to anything and everything you can that involves Mr. Eckhart Tolle.

But, the power of nature is tremendous. Get amongst the green trees and water, once youre there you'll know youre in the right place. The mind will ease eventually.

sounds like anxiety. My sister suffered from it too. She got therapy and they gave her a prescription that actually relieves it. Sometimes it can be triggered by stress in every day life of subconscious issues. She would say that at night her thoughts would start spinning, unconsciously free associating which can take you to very loony places. It would keep her up all night.

The only answer like others have suggested is to tell your doctor. Too many people ignore the option for therapy.

Are you on any kind of prescription medication? Have you ever been "diagnosed" with anything?

not on any medication, but ive been diagnosed with depression and anxiety, i didnt want to take medication


I'm on Lexipro. It's worked very well for me. It takes a little time for it to work though.

Here ya go.

Edit: I just listened to this video for the first time and it is truly wonderful. If you hadn't made this thread, I might not have not noticed this video ... and then posted it here for you ... and then subsequently decide to watch it on my own. I hope you find it as beneficial and inspiring as I did.

Sounds like anxiety...being 17 seems like no picnic these days, I remember in the 90's is was a different type of wildness going on...but now there's the social media stuff and the current state of affairs here in the US. The future appears a bit bleak, the world has changed ...however everything changes, whether gradually or instantly. I have no advice only an observation.

I got nothing against weed (alcohol is another issue) but I would be careful if you are experiencing anxiety and depressive thoughts.

In my experience, other people may disagree, weed strengthens your emotions, therefore if you are feeling down/anxious I would be cautious.

Best advice I've seen given is to hit the gym, and seek professional help.

Plz stay of the tranquillizers though, don't know the situation in US, but here in Holland we are very reluctant to medicate people with these kind of drugs, especially the young

Sure, would love too!

I think it's fairly easy being a U.S. citizen.

Do you have serious plans?

Found this info (http://verblijfblog.nl/?p=1611) in Dutch. As I understand it if you are an entrepreneur with a capital of 4500 euro's you can apply for a longterm stay.

In 2014 160 people applied through this process and 140 received a permit.

If you come over give me a call ;)

but seriously, dementia is probably not your problem today. but you should do everything you can to take care of your mental health. see a psychiatrist and get an assessment. there is a lot you can do in the now to protect your future mental health.

with all that said, genes can play a part in what kinds of illnesses you get down the road. but you can do your best to stay healthy today and not help whatever genetic predispositions you may have.

The video kind of says the opposite about smoking. Says it can be ok in doses, but too much can be bad for the mind. I 100% agree with this seeing as ive been smoking bud for 16 years now.

same here. i don't smoke, but i'm very pro-weed. that said, it can induce psychosis and exacerbate mental illness. you really have to be careful.

it absolultely can be bad for the mind. in addition to memory loss and brain cell loss, there are psychoactive effects. it's not common or easy, but i know some people who have indeed smoked themselves silly and there's no coming back.

Yeah, it can be good in doses. Like the guy said it depends on the person, if you have an “active mind” it can be a good tool for you to help you reach that meditation.

Like anything moderation is important.
