It's called confidence. It's something people can achieve through self reflecting and evaluating their inner thoughts which helps them to arrive at self-love which derives confidence in oneself.

I've followed this exact path from an insecure person filled with self-loathing and anger and who felt a rush of anxiety standing in a crowd of people or sitting in a public bus to someone who has confidence to get 100's in public speech classes and has no issue communicating with people.

Amphetamines increase anxiety in anxiety prone people, this has been proven


A ssri or snri usually does the trick really, really well. That's what I've been on, after a lifetime of refusing to take any psych medications in fear of the side effects. It turned out to be the best decision I've ever made in my life... I can't believe I put up with the daily anxiety & depression for so long because some asshole on the internet told me meds are bad.

Increase inhibitive signalling and decrease excitatory signalling. I used to be mega anxious all the time until i went hard in to push my physiology the other way through food and natural (vitamins etc, not herbs) supplements. Of course i pushed way too hard and became horribly depressed and fatigued for a year or two, but I'm never truly anxious any more. Liver, magnesium, zinc, vitamin c, b vitamins, being adequately fed, avoiding caffeine/tannins, vitamin D, eggs, meat, glycine, theanine, can all have an anxiolytic effect. And if you managed to get depressed and tired like me, it's at least an opportunity to socialize without a psychological failstate since you'll be too zonked out to get anxious, and then when you feel better you have experience with the stressful situation which decreases the intimidation factor.

Amphetamine makes people loose restraint. That's not the same as becoming less anxious. High anxiety, zero restraint is a good recipe for disaster.

Anxiety and nervousness are not supposed to be suppressed with medication. They are motivators and survival mechanisms. They are guides to behavior. Take the right actions and they will be manageable. Pharma already has many drugs that work acutely, but no one should be taking them outside of emergencies.

Give details please. I have bad anxiety when it comes to getting work done.

It's not even a thought. When I sit down to work on something I deem to be important, even if I find it interesting, I have a visceral, physical sensation of anxiety in my chest as well as typical nervous feelings. It's like whenever I commit to getting better at something, it becomes exponentially harder to work on it.

I know I need to get exposure to the situations that cause the anxiety and overcome it, but this is extremely draining and I burn out within hours. I feel like I could make affirmations to circumvent the urge to avoid but the feeling causing the avoidance is not one I can put into words, it's physical. I can't ever remember not feeling this, it's deeply rooted in my mental state.

I eat well, exercise very often, and sleep 8-9 hours a night as well as having a healthy (ish) social life.

If it's any use to anyone gracious enough to give advice, I am a very ambitious person, and the idea of not achieving my potential in life is terrifying. If I feel like I am not going to do something to the best of my potential, the feeling is extremely demoralising.

Any advice is appreciated, I've been trying to fix this for so long, not looking for an easy way out, just some guidance from anyone who struggled with this and dealt with it. Thanks

>10,000–5000 BC: Discovery of late Stone Age jugs suggests that intentionally fermented drinks existed at least as early as the Neolithic period.[38]
>7000–5600 BC: Examination and analysis of ancient pottery jars from the neolithic village of Jiahu in the Henan province of northern China revealed residue left behind by the alcoholic drinks they had once contained. According to a study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, chemical analysis of the residue confirmed that a fermented drink made of grape and hawthorn fruit wine, honey mead and rice beer was being produced in 7000–5600 BC (McGovern et al., 2005; McGovern 2009).[39][40] The results of this analysis were published in December 2004.[41]

You need the frontal lobes prioritized over the amygdala. drugs that do this are-
>sigma-1 agonists (luvox)
>5ht1a agonists (brexpiprazole, buspirone)
>a2c adrenergic antagonists (brexpiprazole, clozapine)
>norepinephrine uptake inhibitors (venlafaxine, atomoxetine)
my stack is 300mg luvox, 100mg atomoxetine and 4mg brexpiprazole
