    or are they two completely different issues?

    Waswas – is the whispering of Shaytan ( for example doing repeated acts of wuduh becuase you think you haven’t done it right, when infact you have done it right ).

    Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is an anxiety disorder – where individuals feel excessive amount of Worries, doubts, and superstitious beliefs.

    Can OCD be treated through an Islamic approach like waswas?

    The question is not based upon myself.

    I don’t suffer from panic attacks or anything like that but there is always a background anxiety in me that is basically constant but mild.

    It is like an impending sense of doom, like I always think something bad is going to happen, like I will be hurt by someone or suffer a disease. I also get nervous when socialising with people and around strangers afraid that someone will judge me or criticise me.

    It is not affecting my life in any major way as it is only mild but the fact that it is almost constant is getting me down and a little depressing.

    Also, as it is mild I don’t think I am a candidate for drugs or anything like that.

    Anyone else have a similar problem? Any tips or steps for curing it?

    It doesn’t seem to have any apparent cause it is just constantly there.

    Ive heard all good things about meditation and I am practising it myself.

    But I want to understand exactly what happens to your brain or to your psychology when you practise it for a while?

    Ive heard that you starve your conscious mind (or thoughts) and live in the unconscious mind and if done for long enough it is a permanent shift or change from ego to just pure awareness only?

    I’ve been having some bad and some minor headaches for more than two weeks. Sometimes i take medicine for headaches, and i can still feel the pain, and i don’t want to keep taking pills, so i stopped for a while, but they’re not going away. Any suggestions to how i can fix this or how i can know what the cause of it is? I still go to school(high school) but i don’t think its really from school work. I’m trying to avoid going to the doctors, because i don’t have a doctor yet. It feels like pressure being applied to my head, and sometimes i can feel it through my face, like the nose area as well. I wear glasses, so my mom is suggesting that maybe there’s something wrong with my eyes that’s making me have headaches. I’m hoping it’s not something serious. My mom did say that i fell out of a shopping cart when i was younger..but could that pain be comming out now? (and i fell on my head, is what she said).

    Everyone there seems so afraid to take responsibilities. Even to name a normal product name. Nobody is willing to do it or to confirm it. Whenever i took my leave. The work was waiting for me the next day when i came to work. Even consumers’ calls. I feel so rediculious. When the sales have clients visiting our office. I did the product explaination. Making the tea,and clean up all the mess after they finished testing our machines. I couldn’t complaint because i can’t tell my department head to talk to the sales dept. I feel so frustrated working like this. I have been thinking of change jobs but it’s rather risky at my age of 40s.

    I have developed some not exactly healthy methods to deal with stress, including smoking. I mention it because needing to have a smoke is one of the biggest indicator I’m under too much stress.
    Work, money, eating right, difficult people, traffic, things breaking down around the house, negative news, etc…
    I don’t necessarily want to be able to handle more stress.
    I’ve started a journal where I have noted the things that I find stressful, and have rated them according to how stressful they are and how much control I have over them.
    I am open to any answers, even pollyanna & (non-fundie) religious ones.
    I’m looking for advice on what the path towards better stress management really entails. Any good books you could suggest, too.

    I moved to a new city where I don’t know anyone to begin a new life and get away from an abusive relationship. I was excited to move here. Bought a house and loved my new job. I lost the job 3 1/2 months ago due to outside factors (nothing I did wrong) and have been actively seeking employment ever since. I have applied for 55 jobs during this time, and only 4 interviews. I am really getting discouraged. I barely know anyone because my job was in a neighbouring city. I have tried to join clubs, but this is a retirement community and the only clubs I have found are geared towards seniors. My kids are grown, so can’t meet people through school or sporting activities.

    I am so lonely and feeling depressed that the employment situation isn’t getting any better. I have enrolled in a distance learning diploma program but its crazy boring (Business Management) so hard to stay motivated there as well. How do I stay positive when so many things are not going well? Its okay to have a down period in your life. Everyone has those, but this is almost 4 months now and its getting so discouraging. I suffer from clinical depression and was put back on antidepressants a few months ago. They help a bit, but I think things would turn themselves around if I could just feel useful. I feel worthless, like no one wants me. And since I have no friends here, no one to go out and do things with and get myself away from these 4 walls. I do things by myself, but that also costs money that I don’t have. My financial situation is very desperate as well, obviously.

    Any ideas would be helpful. Thanks 🙁
    I signed up for the correspondence course so I could continue to work on the it on my own time while working. I thought it was a great idea at the time, but of course in hind sight, attending college would have got me out and meeting people.

    ok, im 19 and i’m really stressed out. This has been due to a number of things really, I.E perhaps not chosing the right uni, haven’t made any friends at uni, the girl i like doesn’t like me back, the work load from uni, lalalala etc etc. It’s stressing me out so much. So much that i’ve developed a massive eye twitch that i can just looks freaky. I’m getting constant head aches and i constantly feel bogged down and ill. Which is unusual because i never get ill.
    I need a way out fast. I’ve taken up running but that’s not really working. I’ve tried having breaks but my mind is constantly thinking about work.
    I usually hate it, but would smoking help? i heard it relaxes you and it would only be until i feel unstressed? This is how desperate i am man and im determined to get out of this slump! Ideas? Im not seeing a Doctor as i don’t want any dodgy medical records and i son’t think it’s that severe. Thank you X

    I’m 16, a guy done with puberty and all of that. Recently this week I have been getting very stressed over little things. I haven’t had a problem with stress for months, not since maybe november. Anyway, a few weeks ago I noticed that I began to gain a lot of weight. I’m not sure what is causing all of it, it’s not puberty, all the tests confirm i’ve been done for well over a year btw. But I read today that stress causes weight gain, only thing is the weight gain started about two weeks before the stress. I haven’t eaten any differently (actually i’ve been eating healthier) so I can’t just not be taking care of myself. I’m not really sure what’s up, but I’ve been watching what I eat and all that stuff and I’ve never had to do that before. I truly think that the stress and weight gain are somewhat related, but to the extent I’m not sure.

    I am not sure what is technically classified as ‘meditation’ or yoga but from what I’ve seen usually it involves people stretching.. or just laying and relaxing with pillows for the most part. I was wondering what is the perception of men doing this? I have been under A LOT of stress, I live with my mom who is older, my sister who is a young adult and my other sister who is just starting school. I’m the only guy and the only other guy in my family is like in middle school.. I don’t really have any friends either and I am just hating college because of the above distractions and some additional ones.

    So anyway my school offers yoga classes. I was considering it but I am worried they might think I’m gay or something. I have nothing against gays, I’m not homophobic but I am self conscious even when it comes to silly things like this. I am not really in shape either, do you think the class will involve a lot of physical work? Will I have to wear those tight clothing? Also from their perspective if they don’t think of me as gay then they’re going to think I’m a perv when it comes to partner exercises right?

    If there are any guys I’d like to hear your experiences. I just want to do something to help me relax and escape both mentally and physically help my body relax as well. Thanks.

    I have recently began trying to improve my life physically and mentally to get away from my previous high stress/anxiety, negative way of going through life. I have begun eating healty, natural foods and exercising. Also, I have begun volunteering and spending more time with nature and outdoors.

    I am not a religious person but I do want to try meditation as a way to destress and get in tune with myself because I have a tendency to be very high strung. But the thing is I know nothing about it. What is a good place to start? Books or websites?

    Also, for people who meditate on a regular basis, how has it helped you?

    Well, my girlfriend is a couple of years younger than me and will be leaving the care system in four months. She hasn’t been happy with her current foster carers for quite a long time and finally decided last week that enough is enough and now does not wish to return.

    However thanks to this, social services are trying whatever they can to make her return to her carers and it’s making her feel VERY drained.

    She will sleep constantly through the night, wake up for awhile in the morning and need to sleep about an hour later during the day (sleeping during the day isn’t something that she can normally do). The situation is also causing her to snap at everyone which is not like her at all.

    So I’m telling you guys this because I want to find out if there is anything that you could suggest that may help her ease off a little bit? I tried to get her in to my local doctors and have her give her some advice but unfortunately the whole doctors surgery has no appointments available for the foreseeable future.
    Your input would be appreciated as the whole situation is affecting both of us and we could do with a little support. Thank you 🙂

It could be something like road rage or my niece not listening to me or even something i see online. i never really act on it besides for verbally sometimes, but it’s lately just been getting to the point where I don’t want to do anything or be around anyone and this worries me. like I said, I don’t act on it. I just hold it in until…well, I never really let it out.
    is there anything I can do besides therapy, meds, or counting to 10? cuz none of that works for me and I’m starting to think I’ll always be like this….

    I have two jobs, as a nanny and as a university tutor, six classes (four which are science courses), and I am the secretary and advertising leader for a club at school. I have a major, a minor, and am a premed. I have about 57 hour weeks (with both jobs and time spent at school). I barely have time to do my homework, as M-F I am barely home and I work Sundays, much less time to relax. I am trying to get out of working Sundays, but I can’t really cut anything else out of my schedule, I can’t drop any classes or anything. I also just moved out, so I am also dealing with money stress, such as rent, groceries, and gas, and I have other things on my plate too (dealing with insurance, filling out forms for school, etc).

    Anyway, I feel like I have too much going on. I have a hard time sleeping, and barely have time to make food for myself (although I do eat healthy). I rarely have any time where I can just lay around watching a movie, and I don’t really have time to go out either. Any idea what I can do to reduce stress and/or manage my time well? I have always been a good student but I am not doing nearly as well in school as I want to since I hardly have time to do homework. Thanks!
    I should probably add that I moved 3,000 miles away from my family, so unfortunately I cannot move back in with them.

    I have been under a tremendous amount of stress lately for reasons that are beyond my control. I’m 24 years old, normally very healthy. I am now noticing hair loss/thinning for the past few months and just recently I’ve been having a constant stomach ache- its not bad but it’s always there- it is interfering with my appetite and the way I feel all day. I have a small “throw up” feeling in my throat at times. It comes on unexpectedly. I am NOT pregnant. I’m taking a multi-vitamin daily for my hair and overall health.

    Can stress be the cause of this? What can I do to help? Meditation? Anything? Any help would be appreciated.

    What is the similarities and differences between hypnosis, meditation and biofeedback. Why do so many people find them so helpful? In what way do you think they might relate to our universal love of music?

    My nerve pain comes and goes. I usually get it at least once a week, which is way better than having it everyday like I used to. However, only sometimes does my Neurontin helps reduce the pain.

    When that doesn’t work I go to my bathroom and hit my hair brush hard against my body to distract the nerve pain. I usually end up with bruises on my body, but I’d rather have that than the nerve pain.

    I see a neurologist and have tried high dosage of Naproxen, Keppra and Acupuncture sessions. They didn’t help too much.

    Are there any other methods of getting rid of the nerve pain?
    I have pain in my arms, legs and feet. When it starts to hurt my muscles start to freak out a little bit and move on their own.

    Hello all! I’m posting his question because lately, I’ve been getting angry alot. I can control it well with healthy coping methods, but I really don’t like the feeling of being frustrated, and angry over small things all the time. I have a doctors appointment to check my blood pressure, but that’s a 2 month waiting period. I’m exercising in the AM, but what else can I do to “stop sweating the small stuff”?
    keeping in mind, I’m breastfeeding and trying to lose weight in a way that wont jeopardize my milk supply

    I’m at a point in my life where everything seems blurry, confusing, hard to deal with. I feel I have a lot of negativity running through me and I honestly believe meditation will help ease my mind and clear me of a lot. I was wondering if anyone had any recommendation to a certain book or web site on a type of meditation that can help.

    Thanks in advance for taking the time to reply
    thanks for the answers, I’ll take all suggestions and try everything out to see what fits. By the way, i gave no thumbs down to anyone so please don’t take it personal and tell me to sniff glue ha

    I am over a week late for my period and I have already taken a pregnancy test (negative thankfully) and I have been having trouble eating regularly. Last month I was under A LOT of stress. I started college and my boyfriend and I got into a huge fight that lead to our breakup. I was not in the best shape for a few weeks. I was just wondering if any of that could be the reason why I didn’t get my period last month and if it has anything to do with my stomach aches.
    oh, and I had to stop taking my birth control on New Years because it was negativly effecting me…so that might have something to do with it too. I don’t know.
    please help if you can. thanks

    I am going into my junior year of high school and i am either a little stressed, depressed or both for the following reasons:

    1. I have tons of homework, which is more challenging work than i am used to, for the start of school for AP classes (classes for college credit). I am going to have to spend the rest of summer doing it and it seems to loom over my head.

    2. The Harry Potter series just ended which I was a huge fan of. It seems to make me think that there is not that much to look foward to. It is really a riduculous amount of work.

    3. I didnt lose the 10-15 lbs i wanted to this summer despite trying. My man boobs always stick out and make me think I should buy a bra.

    4. I know that junior year is going to mean a ton of work and SATs

    I’d rather not talk to my family about this although they r supportive people. Im not used to feeling down and out and I was wondering if people could help with ideas on managing the stress and depression. Thanks.

    I have anxiety issues. I’ve been to see 3 psychologists paying around £150 an hour with little help and am in a situation where I just cant afford to go back. I’ve talked to my doctor who has listed me on a free counselling session however the waiting list is 6 weeks and I’m starting to get really physically ill from all this worry and guilt, I’d really like some constructive professional help to learn how to deal with it and leave the past in the past.
