Can i ask how did they die @dalbeth3 ?
The youngest with cancer
There is some truth to what you're saying of course but serotonin reuptake inhibitors (I.e. Anti-depressants) are life savers for some people and plenty of those will be more than just a placebo effect which you are implying.
Jordan Peterson, one of the greatest minds in modern times claims he cannot function without them, to name one.
I’d imagine the Muay Thai fighter isn’t adverse to regular and consistent cardio
bcoz Im a postman who trained and fought in muaythai
Know exactly what you mean mate. I take something called Propranolol. It’s not a head medicine but it stops the uptake of adrenaline in the blood. Used with folk who have overactive thyroid, high blood pressure etc.
Helped me feel calmer and helped racing heart, palpitations and just helped make me generally calmer. You could take it for a few days and it might allow you to just reset yourself if your still feeling that way.
Yeah, propranolol is a pill I take when my anxiety kicks in, definitely helps.
Was initially prescribed it for migraines.
Have you stopped training or cut back on it mate?
Guy in my work ended up stressed out his box at the smallest thing when he stopped competing and training and pinpointed that was the reason really quickly.
Only have to look at professional fighters who retire to see how their mental health falls away completely when they retire.
Don't train in muaythai anymore mate.hip doesn't allow it. I actually have a gym in my house but have lost all motivation just now. Really want to punch myself in the face and say give yourself a shake. I'm back at the doctors o Thursday for blood results so I'll maybe see about some kind of medication to take short term just to help relax and like someone said earlier to reset myself.
Big * face Fureys head melted when he stopped training. Seems to be getting a bit sensible since getting back. This is where I think a long term gym routine that becomes a lifestyle can bring its own problems. Wearing of back bones, muscle damage and the dreaded depression of not being able to work out. Need that adrenaline and counting calories and talking how smelly their farts are.
went back to the doctor today for blood results and all came back normal, actually mentioned this thread to her and obviously speaking to people who understand what im talking about and she said its a great thing so well done the person or people who put this together. anyway was given propranolol today and ill see where this goes, thanks again for your advise and hopefully I get the positive results you got and I can get to being myself again.cheers.
That’s good to hear mate. No bother. This thread is brilliant and it seems to be working as designed - which is good!
Hopefully you might feel a bit calmer with it over the next few days.
Take it easy.
ano kind of self explanatory
I would somewhat agree. I do understand that some people really do need them but trying to figer that out is a mind field. IMO, Doctors are to quick to give meds out to anyone who walks in feeling in low mood which is caused by a bad diet and no activity. These are the type of people i am on about when i have my wee rants. See it far to often people looking a quick fix for a * life of there own making. They certainly ain't going to find the answers in a pill. I was one of these people once so i would know what im talking about. I honestly believed that the doctors had all the answers, all i needed to do was go tell my problems, they will write me a prescription, take my meds and all will be good. It did my *! I ended up worse!
Never heard of Jordan Peterson, just googled him! Just about to watch one of his videos and he sums it up well. People need to take responsibility in their lives.
Trained from 2007-2012 hard. It was my life. Weight training 4-5 days a week with some cardio. Eating 4-5 meals a day. Soon as i stopped through injury, and it also got monotonous. Once i stopped it, my head was *. One does go into some dark places when that type of their life is over.
Sorry to hear that dalbeth. Im sue both times where tough. Doesnt bare thinking what yous all went through.
I used to be against taking meds,but i went nearly 2 year without and it was a nightmare.N i know how to look after myself i was trainin,eating well most days,meditation often,no drink or drugs apart from ocasional joint and now my medication.Mentally i can be in real trouble if i didnt get help.
If one tiny pil can keep the demons away, then that'll do me.
