Do YOU even do anything, Drew?!?!
@agent The first time you were able and you had to to go back and do the the first time I did that I would be like like I said you have a good day I love that I don’t want you going back and I love love I I don’t don’t know why you don’t like me but but you know what you do and you don’t like it it is not a good time for me I I just want you and and you don’t have a bad bad day and you know I love me I love me and you know that you are I love me but I love me too and you know you don’t want me I love my kids I don’t care care I love me you are my baby and you e
HEY HE DID THAT THING ONCE!
Flame he ass Harold!!!
"Do anything Drew". Is that like "That's so Raven".I do something Drew all the time. I watch shite on the internet.
I love when company's prey on people with mental health issues!!! Gotta be my favorite kind of companys!
@o These companies' CEOs are ruining their reputations.
@o thanks I was actually joking (not too funny, I know) my mom drilled all English grammar and spelling into me as a child
@Abigail McCarthy So that would be right if you were talking about something that more than one company possessed. Like the companies' horrible scheister CEOs.
Sorry. I know this is long, but a lot of people don't know about TMS and I just want them to know that if they're interested in the concept behind it, there is a clinically proven method that can actually help.
These people just read an article about how Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (TMS) works as a depression treatment and decided that they didn't need the dozens of years and millions of dollars that were put into the research that got FDA approval for TMS (which allows it to be covered by insurance companies and therefore actually affordable for people). TMS works because it targets specific brain regions. These predatory companies decided that they were going to capitalize on the downside of TMS, which is that people have to physically go to a clinic to get treatment (which can be difficult for people with depression to do), and charge vulnerable people hundreds of dollars for a device that does the exact same thing as a vibrator.
They probably weren't expecting anyone with anxiety to actually call the number lmfao
Omg I hate calling people this is such a good point
Ha. The only time I don’t have anxiety when talking to someone is when It’s not face to face. Fools.
the thing that bothers me the most about the subscription service is that that money could easily go towards one therapy session a month, which would likely be wayyyyyyyy more helpful than anything you tried. you're absolutely right, this is exploitative as hell.
@JustOk I said it hasn’t worked for other people I have known too!
@JustOk I said I never saw it work for other people either. Too bad it didn’t work out for you either.
@Wynn therapy hasn't work for me however it works for my sister and my mom you shouldn't write off the benefits of therapy just because it didn't work for you as it could turn other away from it you may know because of your bias towards it everyone is different
@Not-So Common Sense wow, what a genuinely shitty thing to try to rub in someone's face to "win" a Clip-Share comment. Maybe you should talk to your therapist about your lack of empathy for someone who is struggling with something you're privileged enough *not* to be struggling with. Not a good look, dear.
@Wynn Anecdotal evidence means very little, but since you are using it, I am currently in therapy for anxiety, depression, and PTSD, and so far, it has been very helpful in increasing my overall mood and helping me process my trauma.
If I recall from my Psych 101 class from 30 years ago, one aspect of anxiety comes from the feeling you can't do anything about it. If you have some random device, you get a false sense of empowerment because you can utilize the device. It's a behavioral placebo.
@paad well, yeah. Placebo never solves anything fully. It's a temporary obsession.
yeah but it's not actually solving the problem? if it brakes you might recess back to full on anxiety (trust me i've tried many things for it and i still need therapy)
The same with depression
@Butter Does Stuff Maybe yeahnoshit
I'll never skip Drew's ads because I'm worried he'll end up with credit card debt at the rate he's buying things
He's sooo good with these ad transitions
Danny spends even more money such as crappy ads for funny videos lol 😂
i wonder if these things are possible to write as tax deductions?
I have a feeling he’s buying all these things because he WON’T go into credit card debt
off topic but i like ur pfp
I still remember the time Drew talked about how he involuntarily pees while doing number two as he was reviewing some kind of overalls that had two separate openings for front and back. It's personal details like these that make the subscribers feel really close to him. What a great guy.
@Jacob Loving for some reason I thought guys don't do it, only girls haha
Drew confirming human experiences
Not as bad as pooping a little when you pee.
That happens to everyone YeH ?
My only thought while he’s talking about the vibrating devices is how much cheaper it would be to buy another kind of vibrating device
Helps with stress way better
Just got a mental picture of him with a couple of dildoes strapped to his head...
Best $15 dollars I ever spent
And that other device you mentioned is better for your mental health too.
And at least that one gives you dopamine, if you use it not completely incorrectly.
"A vibrating pebble and an inhaler with different flavours" so, basically, a bullet vibrator and a vape pen?
Don't knock it till you try it🤷🏼♀️
Sounds like a solid afternoon
i think those would be more useful
Ill take the latter
I actually bought the Calmigo last year when I was having a really rough time. So rough that I was willing to fork over $200 for what seemed to be some sort of miracle device. I used it maybe once, and then realized it was unhelpful and pretty much useless. A paper bag served me better than that. So that is my personal testimony about the Calmigo
@The Potter’s hand ohh I see, I was very confused for a second there 😂
@dopeman oh my bad... my comment wasn't supposed to go under these replies. no, calmingo sucks. no disagreement there. lol
@The Potter’s hand Lol what?
To be fair, you were focusing on being distracted from staring at the ball so maybe you were on to something there
I would just get one of those clogged nose eucalyptus boom boom sticks n breathe that in my little sinuses
The transformation of Drew’s content over the years from ranting about terrible influencers to terrible products is amazing and seamless.
Also the vulnerability with his audience I love this fandom it’s so wholesome and geniunly funny and creative unlike some other fandoms (No tea no shade)
@Josias Lourenço I’m jewish as well but calm down, you won’t convert anyone in a comment section; also, jews don’t usually attempt to convert so interesting!
@Nuclear bomb yes 👍 capitalism smh
@Crypticshadøws And then he'll become a terrible product..?
Is there really a difference?
Drew: "You know what else has Bluetooth and the ability to vibrate?"Me: 👁️👄👁️
@AriesPisces I did a thing ref?
My mind went places 🙂
@Serentique orgasm therapy really works! I feel great during my therapy sessions. I’m joking, At least I can do it for free myself instead of paying $150 for real therapy and getting actual help B)
@Katherine Burgess mines heated man they’ve evolved
@Katherine BurgessBluetooth doesn’t seem worth it or needed
i think it’s so funny how drew goes from glass animals lost band mate to some kid you knew in middle school just from a haircut.
too accurate lmao
I think vibrating CAN help you relax, I used to have panic attacks when I would get shots so doctors started giving me this vibrating ladybug thing and it really helped. The only problem is, it doesn’t work for everyone, nor is it a cure all. Plus you can probably get a vibrating thing that’s similar for like, 15 bucks or less.
@Al Bonzer best one
That’s honestly adorable
If you use it on a certain part of your body, you'll RELAX, lol.
Well a purring cat on your chest calms people down.
it's a sensory thing. you've got this new sensation to focus on that's relatively unfamiliar and doesn't hurt. your brain stops focusing on the impending needle and is like "oh shit lol what's that." people in the replies are right that the same could be accomplished with any other thing that vibrates, but i'm genuinely glad you got that ladybug thing. if it works, it works.
Bim Bim giving herself an angry bath after Drew put his foot down on her kitty nonsense behavior made me kinda happy. 🤗
I've never seen Drew as stressed out as in this video, engaging with calming technology
@Halo Eighth Mo-oooom, I think the bot's broken again!
stop posting stolen comments from actual commentors, you've potentially posted 23 already
Still not as stressed as he was when reviewing the moon pod😂😂
To be fair they claim it's calming but it actually does nothing, so is anger inducing!
"Im not buying it."Me, out loud: "You already bought it Drew. You spent 1,000 dollars on it."
Shhhhhhh don’t remind him
my thoughts exactly lmao
There’s a concept with Bipolar Disorder where people spend egregious amounts of money on things which releases norepinephrine in their brain and I genuinely think these are feeding off of that positive feeling when you make a big purchase
@Molly Oliphant my borderline’s ultimate enemy, me buying myself a little treat
I have ADHD and there is a similar thing with adhd as well, but more so with dopamine than norepinephine. It's one of the reasons why disorders like bipolar disorder, bpd, adhd, depression, anxiety, and likely others can be so hard to differentiate, because a lot of them have traits and symptoms that appear quite similar, especially with only a surface level understanding of those symptoms.Hypomanic episodes in people with Bipolar Disorder can seem extremely similar to Hyperactive or Combined type ADHD, especially when you consider that a lot of people with ADHD also develop depression, which has highs and lows. Many of those disorders can also induce mood swings, and hightened emotional sensitivity, which is how it often overlaps with BPD.Mental health is very complicated, and as someone with mental health issues, I know how much most of us wish we could just buy a magic product to fix it. People with mental health issues that are desperate for some sort of way to ease their pain are especially vulnerable to exploitation and abuse, which is why products like these are so scummy.
There's something similar with bpd as well
Yep! It’s true but it’s not just bipolar disorder it even goes for severe depression. I tend to buy food and toys (both things are comforts to me so it makes sense) and spend quite a bit of money. Tho once I get out of my spending episode I break down badly out of guilt for spending so much. Then again I go through manic episodes as well which sometimes cross over but not much. We love being severely broken haha
I regret leaving the mental hospital if this is what I had waiting for me
So true kitty boy !!1!
@Punky Jewster oh no, my joke was I had just left the mental hospital and that's when my comfort youtuber posts something on mental health
Where were you where the mental hospital was good enough to make the outside world look bad I’ve heard majority horror stories from psych ward patients 💀
“I was causing the problem I was stressing about, by stressing about it” this is just me with everything
Wow, Drew! You got smarter and smarter over the course of the video. At the start of it, you bought these dumb products and at the end you stopped buying these dumb products.These things must work!
Dude you got famous. Well done😂
LMAO good one
Believe in Jesus 🙏
Oh, Drew is never going to stop buying dumb products. It's part of his life now.
Reminds me of a $60 toy I specifically picked out at Toys R Us on my 10 or 11th birthday. Toy was a headband that attached to a plastic air vent that blows a ball, making it float, based on your "focus". Aboslute scam of a toy. Took only 10 minutes of use to shatter my expectations and birthday dreams. Definitely learned a life lesson that day lmao
I remember using those, they always worked for me though. The only bad part was that the loud ass fan kept waking up my parents
Those actually do work, they measure electrical activity in your brain and send a signal to the fan to get stronger when the electricity in your brain rises. I can imagine a 10 year old having zero clue how to actually make that happen though so...
oh my god yes i had this, it came with pieces so you could make an obstacle for the ball. when it actually worked i felt like a 10 yr old genius
Omg I remember seeing commercials for that as a kid. It looked so cool but definitely a scam
The one my family got was Star Wars themed
I think the worst part is that these brands were actively targeting you because you had a break in your mental health. They’re praying on the fact that you need help, and they say they can sell it to you.I own a drawer of useless shitty stuff like this that I buy because I’d try anything to get some semblance of physical or mental health, and I guess on some level it’s obvious that these companies have been scamming me, but when you’re desperate, you don’t see that, you just see the little glimmer of hope that throwing more money in this sinkhole will make it close up.
@Ezra Bolotsky exercise doesn't get rid of mental illness. it can be a coping mechanism, but it is not a cure
I cant speak for everyone and my mental health probably isn't that "severe" as the rest but i **really** recommend doing some excercise, prefferably going to the gym.It sucks at first and it can be a bit exciting etc but its nice to get all that pent up frustation and doubt out of your system a little.
@Ezra Bolotsky Advice can also be useless or annoying especially if noone asked for it and you don't know the situation.
@oh advice is exactly what it is. Take it or leave it. Can’t be offended by it.
Shouldn’t Instagram be held accountable for these fake advertisements?
@Saint Geinfr…. also yes instagram absolutely should be held responsible
They don’t care bc Instagram gets profit. Super aggravating. Best to ignore all ads.
Hey Drew I'm sorry panic attacks are hitting you. I had a bunch of them real bad years ago. One thing I can recommend, if at all possible, is when you feel like you can't breathe and want to gobble air by breathing rapidly through your mouth.. breathe slowly through your nose instead. If you can manage to remember and implement it, that is. I know it is seriously a tall order under those conditions. There's a book called Breath: The New Science of a Lost Art that goes into some of the negative effects of mouth breathing and very positive effects of nasal breathing. It's a good read with really important information. It's by James Nestor. Peace. You're funny.Commented too early in the vid whoops still a worthwhile book and subject to explore!
Whoa!! Panic attacks are hitting on you too? I thought we had something!!
@Hunter!! wanna bet? I'll bet you $500 I AM the real Drew Gooden. No? $400. $300? C'mon! Do it.(Oh my gosh, my gambling addiction is out of control. I need intervention.)
the way to tell how much time has passed has never been easier than watching drews blue hair slowly turn more and more into a seasick green while his roots grow in
@Drew Gooden whatever u say
@Dylan Fernandez i think it’s because they took it from a song
@~ducky.doodles~ "Your" not helping..ITS YOU'RE, FFS
@yoinky I'm "prety" sure Amanda knows how to spell
@Drew Gooden true
drew the fact you can buy all this is such a subtle flex like man
these have to be tax write offs… right?
Poor kitty was just going to go in and out and probably in and out again, and now it is stuck with Drew's ramblings lol. Look how patient it is, waiting and grooming, and sleeping and walking around and not interrupting - very distinguished! (:
@black air force master manipulators and heartless sociopaths that we love more than fellow humans
@Letthembelightpeaceonelove they piss you off then they give you the look and everything is alright again
@STSGuitar16 And my cat dragged my brand new pair of underwear into her little box when it was too dirty for her liking once. They have funny/ disgusting ways of communicating with us sometimes, don’t they?
@Letthembelightpeaceonelove my cat pissed on my pillow once
Probably just wanted to check on Drew to make sure his mental health was okay! Cats are the best therapists sometimes.
I relate to your panic attacks. It’s hard to keep at it but you’re doing so well drew, appreciate you
My favorite part of this is how clearly all of the ads that are supposed to be genuine come across as the laziest ad copy ever written. I wonder if it's similar to how Nigerian scammers intentionally misspell things in order to weed out people who would only realize what was up later in the process.
“sometimes my brain forgets that we’re supposed to be on the same team” what a great way of describing anxiety I appreciate this. what a mood.
@Mmmph yes! sometimes people tell me “just don’t worry about it” and i’m like fam if it were that easy I wouldn’t be doing it lol
@Groovy Mystery Music for real!!!!
@Josias Lourenço what are you doing in this comment section bro 💀
Hebrews12:14 Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord.Acts3:19 Repent, then, and turn to God, so that your sins may be wiped out, that times of refreshing may come from the Lord,James 2:24,26Ye see then how that by works a man is justified, and not by faith only. For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.
My brain has several teams. They play in a league.
I’ve never seen Drew more on edge, ironically
This made me remember to the time when i was at my lowest and i got ads ALL THE TIME on instagram about apps to better mental health or to make tests(?) to see if i was actually depressed or what type(?) of depression i have. At least now they learned and i mostly just get ads for independent artist which is pretty cool
Haha! I work at the sleep insert place (Inspire Medical) as an intern... It's a medically prescribed sleep apnea device that works extremely well, however it's only prescribed if CPAP machines don't work... Interesting to know our advertising is to the same pseudoscience demographic
the one where drew realizes there should be federal oversight for consumer health products...
So glad I'm doing an analysis of your videos for college. It's come full circle Drew.
Drew is an investigative journalist
hey man i really really appreciate you taking the time to explain briefly how hard panic attacks are to handle, not everyone gets it/hears about it and it helps to have people normalizing the debilitating effects anxiety can have. thanks!! :)
That’s how I felt too! Drew’s someone I admire and respect so it’s comforting for him to share his tough experiences. Don’t get anxiety attacks anymore particularly (thank god) but when I did in the past it was incredibly debilitating
Hilarious and insightful video! I feel like I'm even more cynical that Drew when it comes to these products, so it was nice to see someone mock them for a lil.
I’ve never seen his hair look like it’s so stressed out
It’s gross to me that companies prey on mental illness. Also, I’d like to someday see products that can help with things beyond depression or general anxiety such as schizophrenia, bipolar, or unusual presentations of OCD. It’s gross that only the well off can afford these crap products. Make mental health devices that work and are affordable.
I’m convinced that half of these things are tracking devices
Hey Drew, if you have a series 4 watch or newer you can actually see your HRV in the health app (you have to wear the watch consistently enough for you to get a number)
If they made it cheaper then more people would buy it and tell everyone that it doesn't work.
I love watching Drew slowly develop a debilitating shopping addiction
And crippling anxiety!
@Hyunjins left hair folical your username blessed me today
It’s for science
Please guys believe in Jesus. Whoever believes in the Son has eternal life, but whoever rejects the Son will not see life, for God’s wrath remains on them».
having a watch on your wrist vibrating for 3 hours a day sounds like a great way to get wrist pain
you should create a burner account for when you signup for stuff you don't want emails
You don’t have to lie to us Drew. You live in Florida. Your neighbors all also have ankle bracelets.
I think the way you make the ball go up in that one app (in theory) is literally only look at and focus on the ball to the point where you don’t even see it rising or lowering. Be one with the ball lol
I was like 99% sure that this video was going to be sponsored by "Better Help" and was gladly surprised when it was "Hello Fresh". A true leader of aiding people in mental health.
FYI HelloFresh union busts and their warehouse employees have been subjected to terrible work conditions.
@Lavender Paint when I saw that I was actually disappointed with him but was happy that the comments also had same reaction as I did
@boodesultan12 yeah, Danny Gonzalez actually got sponsored by them a month or two ago and there was so much backlash he actually deleted the sponsored part of the video- hasn’t said anything about it though
@Sky n you say that and I agree but you would be surprised at amount of youtubers that still accepts better help sponsor EVEN after the controversy
honestly though, cooking is hard to do when you’re struggling. hello fresh can help better than any of these clearly by drew’s descriptions lol
I wasn’t expecting righteous anger from a Drew Gooden video but I’m not complaining
this was like a real life flowers for algernon. drew became so much smarter from the vibrating plastic garbage and then he was a genius forever. I think that's how the story goes
@Potato Sophie same. at least this comment made me laugh two years after i cried over the book so all is balanced
That book made me cry bro
Weird... I've had another app called "Cove" on my phone for ages, and it's a mental health app that lets you make music based on mood or feeling. Hmmmm.... same company or suspicion?
That Jeremy Renner reference was gold
One day i turned on drew gooden and my grandma immediately said “i hate this guy.” And i now i think about it everytime i watch him
@Owen Richhey i’m not christian either but that’s super disrespectful
What did Drew do to piss off your grandma
once i turned on danny gonzalez in front of my grandma and she said “i wish youd date someone like him.”
@bluematter01 Mr.Bluematter is questioning why people talk about color 🧐
my parents recently got divorced and for a while my dad was having a hard time dealing with all of it and, as a result, was having a really hard time sleeping. one of his attempts to deal with this problem was buying this weird bracelet device that supposedly admitted some type of frequency that "helped with insomnia." and seeing that package and listening to him optimistically describe what it was made me so, so profoundly sad. he's not a very gullible dude, he was an engineer and a math teacher, he's pretty logically-minded but he just really, really wanted some peaceful, relieving sleep. these companies are blatantly predatory and their targets are people who are just desperately searching for relief. it's incredibly cruel and I hope with my entire heart that some of the people who buys these things in the hopes of feeling less bad, at the very least, experience some kind of placebo effect.
It’s probably cheaper to get an online therapist which would be more helpful lol
4:27 I like how Drew is so open about his struggles with anxiety. I also struggle with anxiety and now how hard it can be to just simply sit still on the couch and try not to overthink everything. It really helps me to feel like I’m not alone when others talk about anxiety. I’m sorry you had a bad panic attack Drew and I hope you are feeling better! Make sure to take the time you need to feel better and don’t over work yourself if you can help it!
inspire is thankfully not for your anxiety, it is for sleep apnea to permanently replace a bi-pap or c-pap
On a serious note, I really appreciate how open Drew is about his mental health. As someone who also struggles with anxiety it's refreshing to see a "public figure" of sorts talk about his own.
@Hamilton.Is.Life I don't think it's abnormal that you feel that way. I mean, I feel like it can go both ways and neither are necessarily wrong, but I hope things get better for you
only a doctor PSYCHIATRIST can PRESCRIBE anything that has effects in the brainPscychologist are prevented by law fromn prescribing drugs to solve mental health problemsGET A PSYCHYATRIST, the ONLY brain doctors on earth. Sorry to break reality down for all carebears homeopathy cultists, homeopathy doesn't work, and natural medecine is sometimes demonstrated chemically as working (i.e Aspirin, or curare for anesthesia)
@Hamilton.Is.Life same, just sad that so many people struggle like this
Is it weird it doenst make me feel better at all? It makes me feel bad for my own problems.
I think it’s so funny how some descriptions say literally nothing about the product and then other companies use so many fancy words and still say nothing
7:15 she *totally* is the person who created that product lmao
Note most of the time if there is a study like that or research paper you can contact the original author and they're allowed to give it to you for free and a lot of them will and none of the money goes to the original author you're welcome
You'd have to be crazy to buy these products!
Finding out Drew has anxiety too did way more to make me feel better about my anxiety than a sketchy $200 electronic doodad ever could
While it does suck knowing that other people are suffering, it feels good to know that you're not alone. Especially when it comes to people like Drew, like, it feels so relieving to know that somebody with similar mental health issues can still keep up a career, and it feels good to know that he was capable of doing it in the first place
@Foul Mouth Fishing Drew is successful, cool and funny, so if he has a panic/anxiety disorder, then that means that it's possible to live a fulfilling life and be successful even when you have mental ilness. A lot of people who have mental illness genuinely start to believe that they will never be able to overcome the negative effects and achieve their goals, so seeing someone who has mental illness who has a life that you want to have is super impactful.
Ig ive just never found any comfort in learning anyone else has the same things as me. If anything i feel bad for em. But i get bringing awareness to mental illness also
@Star Seeker more common than yoh might think, i just think its funny that people reuquire validation from a random youtube creator having anxiety. But i also get it and im not trying to discredit anyones struggle, i deal with my own everyday.
@Foul Mouth Fishing Having to go to the ER because you think you're dying but it's actually a panic attack is super common? I'm the only person I know who's had to do that, and I have several dozen friends who are very open about their mental health issues.
Drew buys snake oil the series
You know how I can tell the Raycon Earbud ads are a lie? When people are not advertising them they don't use them. Need to wear earbuds in a video but it's not sponsored by the person who paid you to say you love them? Don't use the Raycons.
If you have panic attacks, find a psychotherapist. They can really help.
Great video. I love how the Moon Pod keeps coming up. 🤣
Wait if it was based on your focus, and you did things that required more focus, wouldn’t the score go up? I guess sleeping dosent count tho
I like how you can tell how genuinely pissed Drew was about some of the products here, in comparison to his other videos. Like sure, a product that turns all liquids into slushes in pretty dumb and useless. But the worst that can do is lose someone $25, not that big of a deal at the end of the day. On the other hand, a product so ridiculously expensive that's supposed to help with mental health but actively makes mental health worse, that's on a whole other level of scummy.
Fun fact: interoception is WELL KNOWN in the ASD community and it's something some of our members struggle with literally every day. Just FYI, it's not nonsense, it's a real problem for a lot of disabled people. Mine is only mildly wonky, so I'm pretty lucky.
You mean I’ve never known of a problem I’ve been having for years?! I feel jipped man.
So these are $200 to $400 devices to help your breathing, meditation and mindfulness. Yes, all of those things are known to help with mental health. All of those are taught in DBT. But you don’t need to spend money to do those. So I do agree these are predatory practices to make money, with no actual scientific backing behind them. And noticed how not one of them used to words meditation, deep breathing or mindfulness because then the customers would know they could do that for cheaper, even tho those are proven to work. All sort of bs just to make a buck. Snake oil is still around, now it just hooks up to bluetooth.
Stressing about a problem that wasn’t a problem until I started stressing about it, but now it’s a problem so I’m stressing about it -my life
therapy is cheaper than any of these 🧍♀️
Mendi reminds me of my neurofeedback therapy, but as you pointed out, it doesn't actually teach you what to do, versus actual neurofeedback therapyUpdate I got further in the video and. Okay. It just pretends to be neurofeedback therapy
What's neurofeedback therapy? I don't believe I've heard of that but it seems interesting!
The makers of the sensate saw someone put a phone down their shirt and thought ‘what if that, but it’s a vibrating egg thing?’
Drew bringing up his panic attacks and anxiety so casually is sort of refreshing in a way. It always feels like something to avoid talking about, but he talks about it with honestly and confidence. Im glad Drew is able to recognize his panic attacks and talk about them to spread awareness….. also why is the work oneie guy everywhere?????
...no one in 2022 avoids talking about their panic/anxiety attacks. It's literally a qualifier on dating profiles now.
Yeah panic attacks are terrible, been to the ER also, it feels so real like you're dying. Heart beating so fast you're at risk for stroke or cardiac arrest it's scary & losing touch with reality in the process. I used to be prescribed benzos like Ativan for attacks but thankfully I've gotten older & just grew out of them idk I can control them & prevent an attack now, I no longer take medicine and I barely ever have anxiety anymore. Not sure what happened but it's a great feeling being free.
@James Wilson I completely agree. Humour is my coping mechanism so I use self deprecating humour a lot, but can also talk about it matter of factly but I get it’s definitely not commonplace and I appreciate the fact he was able to.
@DigitalHarmony I have also noticed that when they are brought up, they can oftentimes be wrapped in self-deprecating humour (at least that's what I do). It's refreshing to hear about it so simply and in such a non-sarcastic but also non overly dramatic way (not that I think it's overly dramatic to dwell on your mental health, but I'm not sure how to express it otherwise). Basically, it's nice to hear about it as though it was a purely physical ailment which you have and need to take care of.
Idk if this was planned but this is a great video to put out for men's mental health month. Mental health should be talked about, and be talked about as more than just "sometimes we're all a little anxious, just sniff some lavender" lol.
I am an avid mental health awareness advocate and spoken word performer, and I love this so much. I travel the country trying to bring that awareness on stages, in classrooms, hospitals, and on my Clip-Share channel, so I get excited when I see other advocates. 💚
You describing your anxiety is so relatable and it means so much to see a cool guy like you talk about anxiety
Drew has such disgruntled dad energy at 31:26
It was the slamming the table that did it for me
the mendi looks like a really generic version of nuerofeedback…. pretty dangerous to have random people trying it on themselves… unless of course it doesn’t work
I love "New Age Filth" by Hail The Sun, Drew I love your content and I love your room/taste in music, KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!!!
Fr I remember being so surprised and stoked to see a Circa Survive record behind him in a few videos, his taste in music is top tier and makes me like him more 😭
Drew, I hope this message reaches you. Please take magnesium and B vitamins for your panic attacks. My husband has the MTHFR mutation that affects 40% of the population. As a result of that and poor health practices, he was severely low in vitamin B1, B12, folate, and magnesium: the perfect storm for panic attacks, and EMTs had been called to respond to his episodes on multiple occasions. Now that we know it was a deficiency, we have corrected it, and he hasn't had a single panic attack since. Dr.s are terribly unhelpful, just prescribing pharmaceuticals. Clearly the issue isn't a SSRI deficiency, lol, so if it's a choice between the dangerous side effects of something that is not a cure, and something that you are malnourished from not eating enough of, I think it would be wise for any Dr. to recommend the latter first and foremost 🥲. Please, if any one is reading this, please, boost this comments visibility by liking it. Panic attacks affect 5% of the population unnecessarily, and we need to help inform people. If you've ever seen someone experience real panic attack, you understand it's a torturous affliction that most wouldn't wish on even their enemies.
I just recently found out about the MTHFR mutation. It's insane that this information isn't more well known considering how overwhelmingly common it is. Mental illness ran in my family, though, we always veiwed it as some kind of emotional disfunction rather than a psychological one. My cousin who was a former heroin addict was actually the one who figured out that it was primarily caused a B12 deficiency and since getting herself and her daughter on B12 injections has gotten off heroin, and her daughter's suicidal tendencies and attempts have completely stopped. She secretly injected our grandmother was being kept in a mental ward, and was released soon after. My father and myself now take them too, and it has helped me tremendously. If the people who were effected by this mutation were all able to correct it, pharmakeia would lose a lot of dough.
drew!! I deeply appreciate your openness surrounding anxiety and the direct description of your panic attacks. I've lived with anxiety and depression my entire life, but within the past few months have had a few debilitating panic attacks like nothing I've ever experienced. it's validating and beautiful to see it spoken about candidly on a large platform in such an honest and authentic way. thank you.
I'm curious to see what would happen if he put the mendi on his cat, of course not tightly
Watching you comedically eviscerate these scumbag, predatory companies, who con desperate people suffering from very real mental health conditions was ironically extremely therapeutic! Thank’s Drew!
@08mlascelles ... when has the NHS EVER had funding cuts as of late? It's had it's funding INCREASE while under "Tory" government.
@Emily B. Feeling edgy today, huh? Corruption and cronyism will exist in any system that is tried, so good luck escaping it.
@Emily B. pretty sure the situation would be multiple times worse in a planned economy, if that is your alternative. if not, please feel free to correct me
@Josias Lourenço whatd that have to do with anything. as someone who does not believe, it just doesnt make sense to randomly quote the bible.
Drew and Danny: we are two different peopleAlso Drew and Danny: *literally cuts all their hair off at the same time*
Wait, what… who’s this drew guy?
i don’t know why but i’ve rewatched this video four times now
As a kid I was hooked up to electrodes and had to do those weird focus games, and to be honest Drew's confusion about them gives me sick joy
The fact that he thinks they want to help anybody is so sweet. The reason they're priced so high is so they can make as much money as possible before somebody cracks down on their bs.
drew is like the financial backbone of dropshippers
It's kinda telling how visibly angry Drew is when you think about why these products are even being sold
The calmigo will likely help with an anxiety attack, due to the breathing technique required to keep the ball up. It's very similar to breathing exercises that you'd learn in CBT.
At the same time there are a ton of apps that can help with this and also breathing appliances and the Buteyko method.
We all remember the rubber bracelet with a shiny piece of plastic on it thar helped with balance or some shit, right?And on the neorhythm: the way brains work is by sending electrical pluses from neuron to neuron (in VERY simple terms) which makes limbs move, thoughts and feelings happen, and so on. The electrical pluses are constantly and randomly firing, depending on what you're doing. So if your brain was to "synchronize" to the "dominant and accompanying frequencies" and all your neurons fired at the same time, you'd like, die or something.
Oc it made a "drastic change" in their lives. This is more true if the individual has less money or is affiliated with the products. LOL
"no thanks, i aint buying it" - Drew, moments after already actually buying it
I was just about to type that 😂 same wavelength
@Drew Gooden said drew, as he ordered 12 more in order to create an anti anxiety suit of armor
but I’m sure as hell not buying it AGAIN 😈
Just wanted to leave a small thanks for talking about your mental health. I know it's a vulnerable thing to share, esp with a lot of people, but people like you help normalize talking about it, and help people understand the truths of some of these things. Esp with anxiety, even openly talking about my anxiety can threaten a panic attack for me.Thanks, Drew. You're a pretty Gooden guy
Its so cool that this channel has grown so rapidly without selling out into clickbait and trend following but through well thought out longform videos. Love it
american health literally only works because of the placebo effect
