  1. I had very bad anxiety in a communication class where we were required to give routine speeches. Starting out my grades were HORRIBLE! However, I was seeing a therapist, who ended up suggesting a VR session where I was giving a speech in front of a class room and it helped tremendously! Thanks for covering.

  2. I came back to comment because I actually started to use Flowly after watching this video! I have a generalized anxiety disorder and panic disorder, and I find that doing this in the morning has been pretty helpful. It has set the tone for my day and I think that I’ve been more relaxed. You start with 6 intro sessions that teach you about what Flowly is and how it works. If you want to do anything past the intro sessions, and if you want the headset and heart rate monitor there is a subscription fee, though you can just repeat the intro session if you prefer. If you are really thinking about going for it then subscribe within the first day, because you get a discount. It’s about 30$ a month, but if you use it everyday then I think that it’s worth it because it comes to about 1$ a day. I am waiting to get my headset right now, but if you don’t have the headset you can still use it!! I’ve really enjoyed using it so far! 🙂

  3. Ewwwwwww bring on tha OPIATES!!!!!!!! I LOVE OPIATES!!! Ugh if I could just erase everyones pruddish brain to stop trippin about pain pills!! N bring back to opium dens, and have morphine available over the counter!!!! Disgusting marijuana is now available in so many states ?? BRING ON THA POPPY FIELDS!!!!!

  4. This reminds me of Sword Art Online, the 3rd season I think. There’s a girl with AIDS who is terminally ill and has an insufferable amount of pain and uses the virtual world to avoid it

  5. I know this is off topic but Zach’s hair is looking so good.

    He use to look like he constantly had a comb over but now his hair is looking so thick and full.

    Props to you Zach

  6. This is such an awesome tool! As a young woman with chronic pain my journey hasn't been the easiest and those stats don't surprise me at all, sadly.

    Unfortunately as much as I would love to try this product it isn't available on Androids (yet) and is a subscription based service (you can't buy it outright). But maybe one day I'll be in the position to try it out and it will be available to me. ?

  7. I would love to see the TRY GUYS do a video of the Wim Hof method to help with zach's back pain! And kind of want to see keith react to it!

  8. I love this series. As a person that is 18 years old and has experience chronic pain on my lower since I was 14 due to trauma. I know this will help me for my entire life, to manage my pain.

  9. such a great series on chronic pain…and to touch on the Gas Lighting of the health care system in the US and how marginalized people get the brunt of that. no wonder they turn to opioids and other drugs to "just make life better" and then get stuck there. thank you flowly for your work, developments and mission

  10. As someone who has suffered over 20 yrs it’s interesting to see what you find. I find salt cave/booth and infrared heat helps along with reiki. Meds don’t help and make me feel like a zombie with pain. Thank you for the suggestions. I did get the massager with arm wraps and it’s nice

  11. Zach THANK YOU for making this video. Autoimmune diseases are very isolating and raising awareness around this topic is key. It's so heartwarming to see that someone is working on ways to ameliorate the pain. Please keep us posted on your progress with flowly!!

  12. Diagnosed at 26 with chronic pain/disability. I'd rather have pain than the fatigue that I deal with, and that says a lot. But anything to help is great.

  13. Yep took me 15 years of suffering to finally get a diagnosis and start treatment for an autoimmune disease (psoriatic arthritis). I had to have surgeries to remove my busted TMJ cartilage in my early 20s and all they said was "you're so young to need these surgeries" and didn't help me actually get the bottom of anything, Not even when my immune system attacked my eyeballs. "You MIGHT be prone to inflammation, good luck cya" yeah helpful

  14. I wish the channel would put these in a Playlist. the last chronic pain one was so helpful, and It'd be nice to have a Playlist to go back to so you can reference it

  15. I have been dealing with chronic pain since I was 13 and have other things aka pain pop up! It is so frustrating when you reach out for help being called an addict by a dr when they don’t know how scared you are of even taking a pain pill at home because is this the right moment will it be worse next week and u won’t have that med to help!
