Regular price £0.00

Hello, and welcome to Jason newland.com. My name is Jason Newland, and this is relaxation, hypnosis for stress, anxiety and panic attacks. Please only listen when you can safely Close your eyes. And before I go any further, I just like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for listening. And being patient as well, because I hadn't released a new recording for a little bit. Yeah, I still, technically, this is probably one of my most popular podcasts now.
Bearing in mind, the amount of downloads I get each day. Yeah, I haven't done record many. So this is number 67.
And I've been thinking about making more regular recordings, possibly even daily. But I'll have to see how that goes. Because I'm not always able to do it. So my intention is to make more recordings. And, and included in those recordings would be some just general relaxation sessions.
So they're not all gonna be me talking, you know, like I am now. They're all gonna be me talking about my personal experiences, and maybe some ideas that might be useful. But there'll be some recordings are specifically a nice relaxation session, where you just close your eyes, and I just talk and
you just feel relaxed. You know, might be a body scan, where I focus on a different parts of your body, it might just be, it might just be me droning on and on, where you get bored, and he just drift away. Which may happen anyway. That's why I was say about, only listen, when you can safely Close your eyes.
So there is a chance I might repeat myself from something that I maybe have, have spoken about previously.
And that's just, that's just the way it is. Because I don't always remember what I've said, I don't prepare what I'm going to say I don't, I don't write down and don't listen to what I've said either. Because I've already heard it when I said it first time. But always remember what I've said. So today, I wanted to talk about something that I want to talk about something that happened to me lately. And I'm not sure if I've made a recording since it happened, because it was last week. So I'm going to just talk about a situation that involved in ambulance come in here. And just my experience of that my experience leading up to it my experience during my experience afterwards, and also my experience you know, sort of a week or so later. So as I'm said, I'm not sure if I've made a recording since that happened, I can't remember. And that so look on my laptop, which would mean getting out of the chair and but don't think I have but if I have then apologies if I'm just repeating myself. And because I've made the let me boy to sleep recordings pretty much every day. So I kind of lose track of what I've said and on which podcast. And so what happened is, and this may seem like a sound like maybe a familiar thing that perhaps has happened to you or someone that you care about and started having palpitations in my chest, heart palpitations, I just eat and just had a meal. And I'll start coughing as well. And I couldn't kind of figure out what was going on, it seemed a bit weird. And I didn't feel very well, he was not he was quite unpleasant.
So what I did is I lay down on my bed, and I did a relaxation, body scan, focusing on the different parts of my body. And I did feel relaxed or more relaxed that I had. Now, I just want to just point out, there's a couple of things.
before this happened, I didn't I wouldn't have told you, I wouldn't have said that I
felt stressed. And I got a few things going on, but nothing that's particularly out of the ordinary. So it didn't feel. First of all, it didn't feel like a stressy situation. Secondly, it didn't feel like a panic attack. And it didn't lead me into a full on panic attack either. Which in the past, it perhaps would have done some sitting with the feeling or laying down with the feeling. And then I start to think you know what, just because I've had panic attacks in the past, and ended up at the hospital, thinking it was my heart ended up not being It doesn't mean that I'm not immune to illness. You know, I'm still human being and having mental issues, mental health, panic, stress, whatever you want to name it doesn't you know, we're still humans, we're still we're still allow allowed to have physical illnesses as well, as part of being alive, isn't it? It's just standard stuff. But sometimes I kind of feel that I shouldn't you know, I should put everything down to the bipolar or the stress. Shouldn't you know, that I'm not like, I'm using all the resources that I shared already with our mental health issues. So I'm not kind of, I shouldn't take up the time of the NHS or the hospital staff or doctors with physical stuff.
Which is kind of ridiculous. Because we're human beings. I'm probably going to keep mentioning that we're human beings.
And we deserve as much say we absorb that people with stress, anxiety issues. We deserve to be kind to ourselves, and to treat ourselves the same way that anyone else would treat themselves. So if there's a physical pain, if there's problems physically, that you concerned about, get to the doctor. That's my advice on that one. But I'm not a doctor. I'm not a medical expert. So I can't offer like medical advice. But anyway, I was laying in bed and I had these feelings. And my heart was I felt like my heart was just pumping but not really kind of what was palpitations? It was unpleasant, and it kept happening nose coughing. And I laid in bed for probably about an hour or 40 minutes relaxing. And then I thought I'll get out of bed now. And then I start coughing even more. And what I realized is normally I've had a few like chest infections over the years, it seems to be a bit of a hereditary thing. Unfortunately, my nan said it, my dad has it. So I think I might have inherited a bit of a bit of a chesty kind of thing. But I know that whenever I've got a cough, if I lay down, the cough gets worse, can't lay down with a cough. Generally, that's how I find it. Yeah, I wasn't coughing, when I was lying down. I was gonna just kind of get to know yourself who do Don't worry, we get to know how we are individually in those situations.
So I get up again, and I'm coughing. And I can't leave at another hour. When I start thinking, I don't know what to do.
Should I go to the hospital? Or, you know, what, what if it is something that needs medical attention. So why do is go online and look up the symptoms. And it's not always a good idea because of the Google and and because of the, the internet, we'll come up with some quite serious stuff. But because I was focusing on my heart, and to get the symptoms of any kind of heart issues, coughing can be a part of it is not a routine part of someone having cardiac issue, but it can be. So that's when I saw that. I fought Okay, I'll call NHS direct, which is said National Health telephone number in England and EU, or Britain or wherever this is in this country.
So I'll find them. And I've just heard advice. And I said just is what's going on? Can you have you got any advice for me? Do you think I should go to the
hospital and get it checked out? Or do you think I'll just just leave it? And I'll find, you know, what do you think? And I said, you do need to be seen? We feel you need to be seen by a paramedic? And I said, Well, I can go to the hospital and they said, Well, we've already called an ambulance for you.
I told him I didn't want an ambulance. I've never in my life ever called an ambulance for myself.
And I hope never to have to but one day I might have to but Oh, I didn't want this. I didn't want that. It's not what I wanted. Anyway, they said it's too late. We can't cancel it. It's been booked. And we can't legally cancel it in case. You know, there is a serious situation. So I said, Okay, fair enough. There's nothing I could do then. So I'll just wait for them. And wait an hour and a half. hour and a half. And then they phoned NHS direct phoned up to see if I was still alive. While this probably not super still alive to see if I was okay. And they said the ambulance should be there soon. And then there's another hour. And then the ambulance turned up. So it's nearly is nearly two and a half hours. Wait for the ambulance. Which makes me think they couldn't have thought it was anything serious. which then makes me think why did they send you an ambulance? And because I was I was well, well, yeah, I was willing just to go to the hospital and get checked out. I'll just go a taxi there. And anyway, the NHS people were on the phone when I originally spoke to them. They said have you got anyone do you can sit with you while you wait for the ambulance. So I said okay, I'll go and speak to my friend. I was still coughing. Still heart palpitations still going. I could feel the stress now. before it happened, I didn't feel stressful. I didn't. I wasn't aware of my stress levels. But once I started talking to this person on the phone, I went downstairs or knocked on my friend's door. He he was about to go to bed but he came up and sat with me for the next three hours really. He was here until early hours. Good morning, three o'clock or something. And that period was waiting. There was a mixture of an increase in stress or maybe more of an awareness of the stress. But he was also a distraction. So having him was having him here with his dog was a distraction for me. And although often I'll feel anxious, I didn't feel like it was a panic attack. Because as I said to my friend, if this was a panic attack, I wouldn't be able to sit here and talk to you, I'll be pacing I'd be outside, I'll be you know, I wouldn't be able to function. Because previous panic attacks like the full on ones, I couldn't function.
But during this I was able to function. So it started made me think. Should we start renaming things? You know, panic attack, anxiety attack? Or just acute anxiety,
anger, you know, rather than an attack? kind of a weird word isn't that the attack like something's
doing something to you? from outside. So the paramedics arrive. And they're really lovely. And they give me an ECG thing heart monitor, absolutely fine.
They do my blood pressure. Perfect. Give me a diabetic testing per, everything's perfect. And they said I was in tip top condition. And they said it might be worth just check going to a doctor or whatever, just to sort of let them know what's going on. And I said, Well, I've got a doctor's appointment on Wednesday. So So this was the Sunday night, or I found a doctor appointment is Thursday, and this was the Monday night last week, something like that.
And I didn't know what to make of it. I'll be honest with you.
Because it didn't feel like a panic attack. I did feel stressed. While it was happening. Didn't I wasn't aware of feeling stressed before. It happened before I started having those feelings. And the next day or the next evening, they hadn't again.
started coughing started. And it's weird, because pretty much all day I was wondering, will it happen again. And I haven't been in that mode for a long time. Because I've had panic, anxious, anxious moments. And then I just move on, I've managed to just, I don't get caught up in the panic in about panic attacks. You know, like, I kind of got out of that
routine that I used to have started to think about it. And I did start coughing the next evening. But during that day, I had a stressful day. I had to go out I didn't feel well enough to go out emotionally and I felt stressed.
And then I went to the hospital. I went to the doctors The day after and I was coughing and I was having palpitations while I was there
And the doctor said the same as what the paramedics said, they fully stress.
And they asked, they all are asked the same thing. What's happened, like in your life, to cause this stress what's happened, you know, like, a major event. To them a major event must have taken place for me to be in such a state, physically or emotionally. And I said nothing. Nothing. Really, that is that big has happened. A couple of things has happened or not nothing, that I could kind of put my finger on where I could say, well, yeah, actually, this happened, and it's bottom reflection. That's a good thing about time. On reflection, planes like to go past when I'm making recordings. so loud plane as well. I'm recording this during the day. Normally, I'll make recordings at night, but I'm on waiting for a delivery or to get my chair picked up. So I'll kind of have to stay awake. So I'm making use of the time.
Yes. On reflection, I just thought, you know what, I have been stressed. Y'all got turned down by from a university course I wanted to be on
and made a few bad decisions lately. Which I regret. And Christmas is is a difficult time. It's a difficult time for some people. And I'm just one of those people where it's not. It's Yeah, I don't enjoy the whole process. I enjoy some of it. But it's on I'm not a Grinch or anything. I just it's kind of a weird time on one end died four days after Christmas. Four years ago. So it's kind of a weird month for me. Generally, December. So don't feel I think it kind of is like an invisible thing. You know, I mean, other invisible, invisible stress that kind of seems to just sort of catch hold on a little bit. Being aware of it does help. So what this made me think what I thought about is, firstly,
what I said earlier is you know, if you're if you feel in unwell go and get help without feeling guilty, regardless of the outcome, even if the outcome is what some professionals like to say, is just stress, just okay.
As if we're going to feel relieved you the idea that I'm going to, you know, again, if I had made this did talked about this before, I felt actually I feel embarrassed to say that when the paramedics would do an ECG, I wanted something to show on there. Just so that they hadn't wasted their time, so that I hadn't wasted the resource in the time of the paramedics when someone else needs them. You know, I didn't I don't want to have a heart condition. I don't know not one part of me does but I just didn't want to be a fraud. Didn't want to feel like a fake. Or there's probably still part of me to think so don't be weak. Even I know it's not a weakness. Having many mental health problems or illness is not a weakness, but there's part of me that still thinks it is be towards myself those. And I know still, I know it's not. But it's still that is, you know, there's still that lie or just pull you pull your socks up, just get on and get on with it, just, you know,
the internal dialogue, which isn't always helpful. It's not always our own voice saver, is it? I don't think.
So. That's the one thing. get medical help seek medical advice. That's what the medical people were there for. They're not there. They don't want people turning up when they're really, really, really ill. And beyond help, possibly. The doctors and hospitals, the nurses, they want people to turn up
as soon as possible in an illness, so they can prevent it getting any worse, they can cure it quickly. Or they can help the person to cope. So actually, by going to the doctor's or going to the hospital.
I'm helping the doctors in the hospital you know, in a roundabout way. But that makes sense to me anyway, I think it makes sense.
So I felt guilty anyway, I did. And then I felt guilty for thinking all kind of hoping that there was some kind of abnormality on the ECG monitor. Because that's, it's almost like feeling guilty or wishful wishing that I was ill, and I really don't. So I felt guilty on various different angles, guilty for having the paramedics turn up, guilty for not being ill, and then guilty for wanting to be ill in order for having not eaten or have wasted their time. And so it's quite an unpleasant experience. Generally. And what I noticed is this NSS it same thing happened in the hospital. I've been to the hospital twice or maybe three times with pains in my chest or whatever, over the years and it was a panic. I was going through panic. This time. The similar thing was I was in pains was palpitations. The paramedic told me everything was fine. palpitations went I stopped coughing. So then because of I suppose from an intellectual perspective, I've started to think, oh, so am I a hypochondriac or my? It was it wasn't real. The feelings I was feeling weren't real. Is her being here a placebo for me, I've got the placebo effect is that all these things basically, trying to aim blame at myself for being a human. A human being with feelings So I really didn't enjoy that evening and again, I had the palpitations A day after, had to palpitation at the hospital, the doctors, and then doctor start talking to me saying, you know, just showing a little bit of interest and telling me that it was stress and looked up on medication and the palpitation stopped, the coffin stopped.
And since then, I've had no coffee, no palpitations is a weird, weird feeling. For me. I can only speak from my own perspective.
I kind of look at things from different various different angles. I suppose. If I can pass anything on this abuse, I would then remembered that
deserve to be cared for and you don't have the right to seek medical advice. Regardless of what emotional or mental health issues might be happening, there's still a body and a body doesn't sometimes a body has problems, isn't it? It's just part of being alive. So the other thing is the guilt side of things. What possible use is that? I mean, really what use what do they give me? For the answer's absolutely nothing. Gave me 00 usefulness. Feeling guilty. Having the awareness i think is useful. Without the guilt feeling guilty for was thinking, feeling guilty for what I was feeling. When how I was feeling wasn't wasn't anybody's fault. It's just to happen. Feeling guilty for the paramedics coming in an ambulance. That's not what I wanted. I didn't ask for an ambulance I've was at a phoned up 999 and asked for an ambulance. I just phoned up asked for medical advice. On the right number 111 which is NHS direct. How hoping that they would just tell me what they think I should do.
So I did the right thing, I think because if you've got pains in your chest, you shouldn't ignore it.
Pain is there for a reason. It might be caused by stress, but it might not be.
So if that's the only message I've got really with this is
take care of yourself. Remember that you're just as important as anybody else. And the medical services are available for everybody. Not just for people the perhaps don't have mental health issues or don't have stress or anxiety or panic.
Depression and all any of those things is for everybody. Just in the same way is mental health advice, medication for depression. psychiatrists, mental health services offer everybody, not just for us, or the people that are currently using the services, and you take in a medication is available for people that may need that service, you know, in the future. So the same way, as don't ignore physical pain, if you concerned about it, I'd say the same to someone is feeling depressed, don't ignore it. Or having a really terrible time of stress, don't ignore it, go to the doctor, get some help. If taken a little tablet once a day or twice a day
can change your whole outlook on life from being super, you know, severe depression, to being able to manage and cope. It's worth it. Really. I'm not really big into taking medication, but I do so because I know that I need to. I've been on and off medication since 19 9019 1994. So that's 24 years. And the first time is for stress. Thank you September 1995. Now it was often 10 months or so of medical tests. Because I was physically ill have talked about in previous recordings. And it turned out they said it's just yet just stress. Oh, great. So just remember, we're leaving now. Remember to be kind to yourself. I'll speak to you soon. Bye.
