“Panic Attack”…. or Anger?

We need MRI studies. Amygdala and aggression arousal. Can they be differentiated from men with weakly controlled rage outbursts cycling with depression?

Otherwise it seems convenient panic attacks are the modern hysteria.

https://psychcentral.com/news/2012/12/05/link-between-anger-and-anxiety/48618.html

It would explain why they’re experiencing “anxiety” when it’s expected they’d feel anger.

Anyone deliberately mislabeling or lying about a diagnosis (malingering) is using a manipulation tactic.

“Panic attacks when feeling angry & frustrated.”

Common. They do under-diagnose female sociopathy and what they describe as panic would, in a man, be a tantrum or angry outburst. Anger attacks.

Sociopaths are not cool and calm like Dexter, they’re angry messes.

“A recent study examined anger and the role it plays in the maintenance of Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD). Researchers examined hostility, physical and verbal aggression, how anger is expressed, and how anger is controlled. More than 380 participants with GAD were tested on their responses to statements that were anger-related such as “I strike out at whatever infuriates me.” The study found that higher levels of anger were associated with worry and anxiety. In addition, hostility and internalized anger contributed to the severity of the participants’ GAD symptoms. Thus, internalized anger made generalized anxiety stronger. Anger fanned the flames of worry and anxiety. Researchers suggested that anger could be detrimental during the treatment of GAD, especially if it is not brought up and handled during the patient’s therapy.
Dr. Richards expresses it like this: You can never get better from any of the anxiety disorders by using another negative emotion. Any negative emotion (i.e.., anger) feeds and fuels other negative emotions (e.g.., anxiety). So, while it may be nice to think you can get better by being angry at anxiety, in fact all it does is make anxiety worse.”

Hold women accountable for their anger issues.

OT

Could low IQ people be said to have panic attacks?

There’s also a definite tendency to let people with more money off on a lighter diagnosis.

https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3269637/

“Relatively high anxiety in patients with GAD predicted high IQ”
Relatively.
“whereas relatively low anxiety in controls also predicted high IQ.”
Intelligent people aren’t neurotic messes. They’re confusing educated with intelligent again.

Contrary to the high IQ propaganda you can find on Google, a real study:
https://www.thecrimson.com/article/2008/12/2/scientists-tie-low-iq-to-disorders/

Researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health have concluded that children born with lower IQs possess higher risk of psychiatric disorders, according to a decades-long study of 1000 people in New Zealand. Children with lower IQ levels were more vulnerable to having chronic psychiatric disorders after the age of 32, researchers said. 

The study was conducted on a cohort of children born between 1972 and 1973 in Dunedin, New Zealand and first tested at age three.

The participants were assessed for psychiatric disorders at ages 18 through 32 by doctors without any knowledge of the cohort members’ IQ levels or psychiatric history.

“Lower childhood IQ predicted increased risk of schizophrenia, depression, and generalized anxiety disorder,” said lead researcher Karestan Koenen, assistant professor of society, human development, and health at the School of Public Health. “Individuals with lower childhood IQ also had more persistent depression and anxiety and were more likely to be diagnosed with two or more disorders in adulthood.” 

Although the exact mechanism through which childhood IQ may be linked to higher risk of adult anxiety disorders is not known, the researchers were capable of suggesting several potential explanations.

genes?

In their report, they theorize that lower childhood IQ might suggest varied levels in brain health that make the subject more exposed to certain mental disorders.

dysgenics

The researchers further said that people with lower IQ levels find it more difficult to cope with complex modern daily life, possibly making them more vulnerable to developing psychiatric symptoms. 

….

If they can’t cope, they should be in an asylum.

Researchers argue that the findings can be helpful in treating individuals with psychiatric disorders.

“Lower childhood IQ was associated with greater severity of mental disorders including persistence over time and having two or more diagnoses at age 32,” said Koenen. “Since individuals with persistent and multiple mental disorders are more likely to seek services, cognitive ability may be an important factor for clinicians to consider in treatment planning.” 

The researchers added, however, that they could not find any correlation between lower childhood IQ and panic disorder, simple phobia, obsessive-compulsive disorder or substance dependence disorders.

Low IQ a mental health risk

https://www.hsph.harvard.edu/news/press-releases/lower-childhood-iq-associated-with-higher-risk-of-adult-mental-disorders/

Read it and fucking weep.

If you understand it, you’ll want to.

Researchers have hypothesized that people with lower IQs may have a higher risk of adult mental disorders,

less ability to thrive in the world leads to depression, really?

but few studies have looked at the relationship between low childhood IQ and psychiatric disorders later in life. In a new, long-term study covering more than three decades, researchers at Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH)

sorry is three decades by Harvard not good enough for some of you?

while you’re playing the Devil’s fiddle of appeal to authority?

“Well, this wasn’t in the Guardian” YEAH.

No prizes for guessing why.

found that children with lower IQs showed an increased risk of developing psychiatric disorders as adults, including schizophrenia, depression and generalized anxiety disorder.

but not limited to

Lower IQ was also associated with psychiatric disorders that were more persistent and an increased risk of having two or more diagnoses at age 32.

Wow the asylum special? Next post about that, regular hospitals are fast becoming the new asylum.

Because “stigma” is a great excuse to endanger regular populations.

The study will be published online December 1, 2008 and in the January print issue of The American Journal of Psychiatry.

The study participants were members of the Dunedin Multidisciplinary Health and Development Study, a cohort of children born in 1972-1973 in Dunedin, New Zealand. At the initial assessment at age 3, the study had 1,037 children. The participants were also interviewed and tested on their overall health and behavior at ages 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 18, 21, 26 and at age 32, when 96% of the original cohort participated. IQs were assessed at ages 7, 9 and 11. Psychiatric disorders were assessed at ages 18 through 32 in interviews by clinicians who had no knowledge of the subjects’ IQ or psychiatric history.

blind

The authors used IQ as a marker of a concept called cognitive reserve, which refers to variation between people in their brain’s resilience to neuropathological damage.

Darwin just called it fitness but okay. Ignore evolution.

Or it could be the inverse genetic measure genetic load, where less is best.

The results showed that lower childhood IQ predicted an increased risk of a variety of adult mental disorders.

Imagine my shock.

“Lower childhood IQ predicted increased risk of schizophrenia, depression, and generalized anxiety disorder. Individuals with lower childhood IQ also had more persistent depression and anxiety and were more likely to be diagnosed with two or more disorders in adulthood,” said lead author Karestan Koenen, assistant professor of society, human development, and health at HSPH.

Next post will focus on comorbids.

It’s ironically depressing reading.

No association was found between lower childhood IQ and substance dependence disorders, simple phobia, panic disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Sounds dodgy but okay.

The mechanism through which lower childhood IQ might lead to increased risk of adult anxiety disorders is not known,

that is a lie

the world doesn’t need low IQ labor anymore, especially in the First World

but the authors suggest some possible explanations.

Step 1. give them more money?

They write that lower childhood IQ might reveal a difference in brain health that makes an individual more vulnerable to certain mental disorders. Another possible mechanism is stress–individuals with lower childhood IQs are less equipped to deal with complex challenges of modern daily life, which may make them more vulnerable to developing mental disorders.

I won’t even.

The findings may be helpful in treating individuals with mental health disorders.

Hang on, if it’s implicitly caused by low IQ, it cannot be fixed.

Ever.

It’s their parents’ fault (median IQ of the genetic parents, all else equal).

Why blame the kid?

“Lower childhood IQ was associated with greater severity of mental disorders including persistence over time and having two or more diagnoses at age 32,” said Koenen.

32 is young, they haven’t even hit middle-age yet when conditions skyrocket.

Deep breath.

“Since individuals with persistent and multiple mental disorders are more likely to seek services, cognitive ability may be an important factor for clinicians to consider in treatment planning.

REALLY.

This is why IQ denialism is toxic. It isn’t everything but hey, it’s something!

When you’re planning about people, plural, it’s important!

For example, individuals with lower cognitive ability may find it harder to follow instructions and comply with treatment regimens.

How low are we talking?

By taking clients’ cognitive ability into account, clinicians may improve treatment outcome,” she said.

The results may also be helpful in prevention planning. “Educators and pediatricians should be aware that children with lower cognitive ability may be at greater risk of developing psychiatric disorders. Early detection and intervention aimed at ameliorating mental health problems in these children may prevent these problems from carrying over into adulthood,” said Koenen.

No no no, no no no and…. no.

Yes, SJWs cause their own depression. Instead of taking this as a sign their beliefs are wonky, they’d rather drag you down with them. “Anxiety” is a useful label over “tantrum”. Anxiety has physiological markers of lack of control that a well-timed temper tantrum does not e.g. cardiac. If they go quiet and sulk (resentment, brooding, wrath) when they don’t get the reaction they wanted, that isn’t how anxiety works.

See, rumination only lasts so long before the energy comes back up, to the boil, as rage.

Otherwise, they claim the illness is causing their accurate self-criticism as an excuse to ignore it than correct it. They get worse, duh. Woe is me, woe is me. Very selfish. They’ll compete with other’s problems. You could have cancer and they’d go on about some indistinct bad feeling they have. Energy vampires. But they don’t need to change, perish the thought. Since obviously they’re fucking #flawless (vainglory). The misery is something they perversely enjoy (for the attention and lowered standard) and to inflict as weapon on others.

Literally this meme. Except true. They won’t lift one finger to help themselves, learned helplessness, to force you to do it. That’s cruel, abusive manipulation. To take from others without need. Does their condition magically lift long enough to attend social events they enjoy e.g. festivals, holidays, conventions, theme parks?

Not how mental illness works. Malingering does though.

Maybe they deserve to be abandoned after five hundred times?

Study: Orexin, stress, anxiety and panic attacks

It’s an extreme form of fight or flight, as I have previously mentioned.

It alters the dopamine system too.

Study: Anxiety distorts perceptions + hormone hell

It makes you perceive neutral stimuli as negative.

Explains a lot.

Speaking of physical causes of psychiatric matters, I bring you from the cutting edge…

http://www.yourhormones.info/hormones/cholecystokinin.aspx

There is also evidence to suggest that cholecystokinin may have a role in anxiety and panic disorders. This is an effect of cholecystokinin released in the brain, not an effect of secretion from other parts of the body.

The brain is a strange organ.
I proffer a starring role in treatment-resistant PTSD. Think about it, when the brain is cured, the gut link is still damaged, re-affecting the brain by proxy. I have a …. gut feeling…. (sorry).

Serotonin mediates decision-making and affects arousal response (anger)

Study 1: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2504725/

People with higher (normal) levels were played for suckers in a negotiation game, trusting and took plenty of offers, good and bad. It’s like they were doped happy and were easygoing about the result. People with lower levels (associated in drinking with recklessness, possible violence and increased libido) were strategic, patient and took the good offers (for in-game resources). It suggests an effect on planning and time preference.

Study 2: http://www.cam.ac.uk/research/news/serotonin-levels-affect-the-brain%E2%80%99s-response-to-anger

For the study, healthy volunteers’ serotonin levels were altered by manipulating their diet.

The preppers are right about the psychological implications of mild to moderate starvation. If it doesn’t affect you, it’ll seem unpredictable in those around you. Granny will knife you for a tin of beans. This is the brain’s natural state, modern 21st century fat and happy is bread and circuses.

The research revealed that low brain serotonin made communications between specific brain regions of the emotional limbic system of the brain (a structure called the amygdala) and the frontal lobes weaker compared to those present under normal levels of serotonin. The findings suggest that when serotonin levels are low, it may be more difficult for the prefrontal cortex to control emotional responses to anger that are generated within the amygdala.

Logic switches off. You get roid rage.

Using a personality questionnaire, they also determined which individuals have a natural tendency to behave aggressively. In these individuals, the communications between the amygdala and the prefrontal cortex was even weaker following serotonin depletion.

This might explain what’s happening to the K-types in Europe.

“Although these results came from healthy volunteers, they are also relevant for a broad range of psychiatric disorders in which violence is a common problem. For example, these results may help to explain the brain mechanisms of a psychiatric disorder known as intermittent explosive disorder (IED). Individuals with IED typically show intense, extreme and uncontrollable outbursts of violence which may be triggered by cues of provocation such as a facial expression of anger.

The usual suspects, fat and happy ‘victim groups’ causing trouble, rioting and protesting, are in for quite a shock if they keep pushing it. It makes you happier to commit violence, but a lesser known effect is it alters the memory patterns of PTSD affecting formation and recovery. This is genetic.

…This same gene variant increases the activation of an emotion control center in the brain, the amygdala…..

Feeling emasculated leads to violence: http://psychcentral.com/news/2015/08/26/perception-of-low-masculinity-may-lead-to-violence/91374.html but by all means, continue to scream in the native’s faces.

Why do I link these?

Well, I believe the reason for r/K shifts is the serotonin functioning within the amygdala. If the gut-brain axis can be affected in it by everything from neonatal levels (that can cause SIDS or on the other end, boost learning ability) to child abuse (yep, the stress of it can cause adult health issues via serotonin), then a local effect on the brain is easily understood. This ties into the fact many people are on SSRIs despite recent findings saying that as many as 2/3 of people on antidepressants don’t need them (for depression, which they don’t have). It could be self-medication for seeing the world as it is (depressives have the most realistic perception) and relate to subtle suicide, a pattern of self-destructiveness that ties in well to recent ‘culture’: http://blogs.psychcentral.com/nlp/2015/11/subtle-suicide/ by smoking, drinking, eating too much (and presumably, recklessly sleeping around, risking HIV and cancers).

SSRIs can be given as treatment for self-proclaimed ‘anxiety’ (many feminists are on them) but take a look at the symptoms of too much;

Mild symptoms may consist of increased heart rate, shivering, sweating, dilated pupils, myoclonus (intermittent jerking or twitching), as well as overresponsive reflexes.

Yeah, the anxiety drugs might be giving them the symptoms OF anxiety.

oh no oh dear hides facepalm double

mfw

P.S. ‘Social anxiety’ aka being a pussy and refusing to learn the rules, is related to high serotonin: http://articles.mercola.com/sites/articles/archive/2015/07/02/social-anxiety-disorder.aspx

At best, antidepressants are comparable to placebos. At worst they can cause devastating side effects, including deterioration into more serious mental illness, and suicidal or homicidal tendencies.

I love how flippantly they write this. Sure, hand them out like candy.

Virtually all of the school and mass shooters, for example, have been on antidepressants. Antidepressants are also prescribed to pregnant women, which can have serious repercussions for the child.

yup damon ian somerhalder vampire diaries hot duh yes uhuh

Those with social anxiety? They’re too comfortable.

Previous studies have revealed that increased nerve activity in the amygdala is part of the underlying mechanism that produces anxiety. Basically, those with social phobia have an over-active fear center. These new findings provide additional information, suggesting increased serotonin production in the brain may be part of this mechanism.

*swears in your general direction*

…Pussies. They’re anxious about unimportant, regular stimuli (contrary to Study 1). Rejection is a fact of life. Yes, you will be awkward, sometimes. Get over it.
Also, feminists with this need to lay off the sweets and carbs.

Dramatically decrease your consumption of processed foods, sugar (particularly fructose), grains, and GMOs…….

Back to depression.

Most people have heard of the “chemical imbalance” theory, which states that depression and anxiety disorders are due to low serotonin levels. Most believe this theory to be true. But the theory was just that—a theory. It sounds scientific, but there was actually no hard evidence behind it.

At that time, they concluded there was no evidence that there is anything wrong in the serotonergic system of depressed patients.

K-types – if you hate the world, you’re right. It sucks to be young in this era.
