60 thoughts on “Is It Just Stress? Or Something Else? | Ned from The Try Guys & Kati Morton”

  1. I was so stressed last year I visited the hospital all the time with chest pain, headaches, sore body parts, abdomen pain, I woke up every 4 hours of sleep for 2 hours at least. I don't think it ever got better I just kind of adapted the ability to cope better.

  2. I have ADHD so some of this was just like same old same old
    but I did relate to some/find some relatable
    stress and someone who isn't neurotypical???? ayone?

  3. Thank you for all your videos Kati! For stress, I've actually found that it does not do a great job of helping me get things done faster. As a perfectionist, most things seem to take me longer then average, and I've often found that my stress just builds and builds… Unfortunately, a few traumatic events turned that into an eating disorder. So now when I don't feel like eating I know I'm too stressed. Yay!

  4. Hi kati! I wanted to ask you a question id greatly appreciate if u respond! I see alot of negative comments from the nay sayers and just wanted to know if cbt would be the right treatment for my generalized anxiety that started 3 months ago after a series of unfortunate events and i am now seeing a physcologist for it, prior to this i had mild deppression nothing crazy and some anxiety but it really got of hand since january ,i hate reading comments becuase it makes u lose any hope of getting better from all rhe negative people on here but i cant help it, so would u say cbt is appropriate for anxiety for someone like me who has never had any major life changing trauma and whos deppression is coming directly from his anxiety!?? Thank u so much!!

  5. I haven’t gone more than six weeks without getting sick in a year. My anxiety and stress are just too much to handle

  6. I get sick when works goes crazy. A few years ago i ended up with rubella..even though i had the vaccination as a kid.then when they did the blood test to confirm rubella..they told me i also had glandular fever….yay….. 🙂

  7. I actually do almost the same thing as Ned explains in this video. My stress WAITS until I'm not stressed out, THEN I get sick. It's happened with medical stuff like trying to find out why I have seizures (my neurologist here in my home town induced a seizure, sent me to an epilepsy center in Minneapolis, and I even TOLD the Dr. there, "when I'm stressed out you can't induce a seizure in me." When I got home the next day, all alone and decompressing, all heck broke loose, no record of it could be had! It stinks.), doing too much and then getting the runs when I FINALLY get a day off, or just like he said, catching the dreaded colds!

  8. Isn't living with different anxiety disorders 24/7 also stressful or is that something else? Is stress only 'life related' stuff, like people mention here; having a baby, moving into a new home, choosing to get a new job, many friends to hang out with, a lot of hobbies etc.? See, I don't understand many people who complain about stress while it involves their choices. I'm not saying their stress is not real, but at least it was a choice. Like, having a baby or moving into a new home; you know those things are the most demanding things in one's life so you can plan around it, get help, stop, and most importantly you can pinpoint what the cause of your stress is. I can/could not even do those things; and the few times I was forced to move or to change jobs, I was suicidal because I could not handle life at all. Now I survive day to day, hoping nothing breaks down in my house, no one rings the bells, no one phones me … it's a constant living on your tiptoes.

  9. About 1.5 years ago I got so stressed it spiked my blood pressure, and my stress level never had an opportunity to really drop so after 6 months I was put on blood pressure medication to get that down. Now my blood pressure is back to “normal”, albeit still a tad high at times, but I’ve still never had a chance to destress properly so I really need to take a break I think, because I haven’t been able to concentrate for 7 months.

  10. He doesn't seem like he's been close to the point of breaking at all lol. I'm extremely impressed considering the stuff he's done just within a single year.

  11. Fortunately work – for me – has never been a stress. I can perform in my work on whatever challenges coming my way. I wake up and go to work just out of enthusiasm and the dopamine reward of achieving stuff.

    All of my stress comes from worrying over and over on other things that didn't work out the way I have expected/hoped in Real Life. But on my profession, I can make anything happen – I'm in total control.

    So, work for me is like an escape from real world. I don't know if this is a healthy thing. Sometimes this has caused health problems. But now I'm learning to keep it on check.

  12. Mindful Eating and Mindful Walking are two techniques I incorporate into my daily life to manage stress.

    Before learning the early signs of burn-out, I used to "crash" a couple of times. It is a horrible thing to happen. I became unable to sleep or digest food. My stomach just shut down with indigestion, constipation, zero-appetite and finally vomiting. I was feeling extremely nauseated.

    I hope this wouldn't be happening again; now I know before things gets that bad.

  13. Would you talk about Scrupulosity OCD? My husband has dealt with it for years and I think it’s under acknowledged and a unique form of OCD.

  14. Thank you for the tips! I’m gonna try to schedule 1 hour of stress-free time off every day in the evening. I feel like I’m gonna break if I keep on like this, I have less than an hour of free time per week!

  15. there are too much things are happening in my life n hopelessness is killing me n consuming me ?.. i gave up a long time ago n now i can’t feel anything but defeated n trapped. I can’t cope anymore. Idk what to do. I’ve never felt secure for as long as I remember n i have no clue how to save myself without hurting n bothering ppl or without being too negative n feeling needy or seeking attention ?.. feeling weak n defeated is devastating. I can’t look fine in front of ppl anymore!

  16. I seriously needed to watch this video today. I knew I was stressed but I always keep pushing, hoping that if I push hard enough it will all work out. Nope. Time to take a break. My sick days exist for a reason. Okay, I need to breathe.

  17. Kati, there’s a typo (‘sign’ instead of ‘sing’) in the second from the last sentence in the paragraph in your description box.

  18. Great use of the green screen. In the other videos, I found myself watching the minute hand of your clock jump ahead after each edit lol. When stress starts to hit me hard, I either begin to get really agitated, or I gradually lose concentration. Perhaps it's my brain's way of filtering out the chaos. I had a nervous breakdown a few years ago, went to the hospital, started therapy, began medication and pretty much became a completely different person literally overnight. Watching your videos helps a lot Kati. Once I master my coping skills, I hope to one day feel alive again.

  20. Can we discuss the difference between anxiety and stress? Is it like a stress continuum with no stress on one end and the high end being anxiety or are they separate processes?

  21. Kati Morgan FAQ:There are some movies and music videos that I want to watch but I can't bring myself to, other ones I jump at the chance. Eventually I come around and watch the movies but why can't I bring myself to do it right away?

    I asked my therapist, she smiles at me but always ignores my question. I'm desperate to understand why I do this. #KatiFAQ

  22. Hey Kati! I know you’ve touched on situations where a therapist might become attached to a client, but I was wondering if you’ve ever experienced a client becoming unhealthily attached to therapy? Also, have you ever had a client who you felt didn’t need to attend therapy? Lastly, who makes the decision to end weekly sessions after progress has been made, the therapist or the client?

  23. Hey Katie! I've been dealing with a type of existential depression related to the hopelessness of climate change. Only a few papers have been published around this subject and they offer little help. Do you know of any therapy techniques to help people like me deal with, or at least be at peace with, the impending and unstoppable loss of everything? (Sorry, this one's not an easy question). I love your videos and admire the hard work you do 🙂

  24. Kati this was super helpful, I wish I watched this a few days ago when I had a break down lol. I really like this video. so there a lot of things that create stress for me, I am doing a lot of things all at once. I am trying to train my self not to multitask. Thank you for doing what you do and thanks for caring.

  25. I always notice that I start biting my nails when I get stressed. When the stress kind of settles in, I realize I get more tensed up and my voice gets sharp.

    The benefits of stress for me – it actually motivates me to get things done, and helps me focus a bit more instead of scrolling on my phone/on youtube xD

    The downside to stress is that I’m very agitated and I won’t eat until I finish a certain amount of my work.

    Something that helps me is writing down what I need to do – this can reduce my stress and it also helps to just let my thoughts spread onto the paper so I don’t have to think about it.

  26. I totally disagree about needing stress to get out of bed. I easily get out of bed when I'm excited to do something or spend time with someone I like. If I don't have something pressing to do, I usually have something I really want to get up and do.

  27. Hi Kati! Could you make a video on signs you might be a good therapist/should pursue getting licensed in counseling? I’m really considering this as a career path and I’d love some insight from you!❤️

  28. I loved the little clip of the cartoon of you guys! I would love to see more videos on the cartoon form! so engaging!

  29. Is there any name for the feeling of being constently stressed ( like 24/7 ) because i'm always stressed about everything and some nights i just sit in my bed trying to calm myself becajse im so scared of falling apart oH WOW that went dark quickly.. anyone can answer?

  30. The symptom I notice the most when I'm stressed is my body being tense and almost like im flexing my whole body without realizing it. I need to get better at recognizing my stress. But as a university student, i'm not sure if that ever goes away completely. I do notice quite a difference in the summer when I only work upto 8 hours a day, and go home and relax without 'homework'. I wish I could achieve this when I was in school.
    I wonder if a video about stress relief in a climate like -50 degree chicago polar vortex. Taking a walk isn't always the most practical, or warm.

  31. When situations at work overwhelm me and I am totally stressed my thoughts immediately to go quitting my job and killing myself when I run out of money. That looks really bad in writing but it happens and I don't know how to make it stop. My doctor just says, "I don't think you are going to kill yourself". He may be right but I sometimes wonder how he can be so sure.

  32. When I'm stressed.. actually for the last two days.. I start feeling on edge all the time, I'm irritable, I travel to the past and the future and can't stay in the moment, I get anxiety, panic attacks, nausea, I can't eat, I can't concentrate at all and every little thing I have to do becomes overwhelming so I cry a lot..

  33. Well for me if I have sometime for school due obviously I get stress out and that’s what makes me do the assignment and then in the end I feel relief and accomplish it is over. So is like 50/50 good and bad.

  34. When stressed like now, I feel nauseous, constant tiredness, lethargic, detached, headache, too many thoughts, lack focus, cant sleep, nightmares, talking is hard words come out wrong, anger easily
