Went to an antique fair with my wife over the weekend. It was 200 miles away so we stayed overnight for a couple of days. On the drive to and from, I kept thinking negative thoughts like what if a plane where to crash on us, what if I lose control and drive into oncoming traffic or a lake. Their just thoughts that kept popping up in my head. I was wondering if anyone else gets these thoughts. Do people that don’t suffer from anxiety think these thoughts. I don’t mention this to my wife because I’m afraid she might get a little too worried about me.
The fair itself was pleasant but frustrating at the same time. I’ll walk done one isle thinking, “OK, I’m enjoying myself for the first time in a long while”. Then I’ll walk down the next isle and think “Well, I can’t fully enjoy myself because of the anxiety I know I’m going to feel soon again”. It’s crazy. I didn’t use to think this way. It was never this bad.
Your thoughts would be helpful.
