    I actually have a calmigo and it’s kinda like aromatherapy mixed with breathing exercises. Breathing exercises don’t typically work for me because of my breathing issues so using the calmifo helps me with actually pacing my breaths properly instead of wheezing or huffing because of how fast/slow I’m breathing. Plus the aromatherapy aspect helps me personally a lot and so much so that I’m invested in more aromatherapy stuff ✨
    My breathing has gotten so bad now though that I can’t use my calmigo anymore at least until doctors figure out why my medical issues have gotten worse 🥲

    Dude trying to sell mentally ill people some shitty plastic vibrating trash as a means to "improve their mental health" is so scummy. It's no different than those pyramid schemes that sell "Essential Oils that can cure autism" like ffs. These people need actual care and access to said care, not this BS. There is just something so disingenuous and disgusting about the lingo they use and the way thet pitch this shit. It's so predatory and ugly to me. They're not helping anyone they're preying on vulnerable people

    Surprised none of these weird vibrators utilize bi-lateral stimulation, Can be useful for EMDR and calming anxiety especially PTSD and etc. You can also do “butterfly taps” where you lock your thumbs over your chest and tap your collarbones one side at a time. ❤ I agree these products are so scummy. We’re all stressed and sad cause we’re broke and overworked and mental healthcare is terrible, on top of underlying mental health issues. Spending even MORE money is not going to change our lives

    My panic attacks are so bad, my fingers curl up and I can't move my hands…. is that normal? I also have a genetic connective tissue disorder no doctor I've ever had has heard of somehow…

    Interoception is a real thing, it's how your brain senses the body's internal conditions. Does it make sense that a product could change your interoception? Absolutely not

    thank you for talking about your anxiety & mental health so matter of fact-ly. I (and I’m sure a lot of others) have a lot of shame about my mental health struggles, so hearing someone with a huge audience talk about these things so openly is more helpful than I can say.

    yeah when I'm psychotic, the thing I really want is an IMPLANT IN MY CHEST. thats great, and the process of putting it in my body by surgery or invasive procedure, is the cherry on top.

    "…or you end up in a depression loop where you don't have the motivation to do any of the things that may make you feel less depressed…" Yeah. So real. Glad I'm not there at the moment.
