Anyone else like this? *possible trigger warning*

Does anyone’s mind come up with the craziest things? Like trying to make yourself scared of things, if that makes sense? Sometimes I can be sitting and be like, “I wonder if I could give myself anxiety over that plant?” And sometimes I do. I recently did that with living life. Like earth sometimes terrifies me. Thinking about living and being trapped living terrifies me. Seeing so many people on earth can terrify me. Im not constantly thinking like this but when my mind wanders.. it hits and I have mini anxiety attacks that arent so bad. Im able to bear them until they go away. But I wonder if anyone else has done that or had a similar fear?

Ive also gained a little fear of being trapped on earth. Lol sounds a little crazy but I can be in my room and look at my room and feel trapped in the room but then when I think, “if i feel trapped, i could go outside.” But then my mind goes to the extreme and thinks “but when you’re outside you’re still on earth. So you’re basically trapped on earth.” Our minds are very creative 😅

Mine is of crowds and people staring at me or more what I'm wearing and how bad I'm shaking.....I hate going to the grocery store but my family helps me to go in and then one day the store was evacuated from a wild person in the store.....I got a little upset because if we had left the house a little sooner we would have been in the situation!!! I don't know why they make me leave the house at all. Something bad is always happens when we leave. And if it doesn't I always get a horrific headache that don't go way for a few days.

Atleast your family is willing to help you. Eventually you’ll be able to go places with no problem. Keep doing what you’re doing. I can feel like that sometimes too. Some days I just want to avoid every public place but I know that could put me in a darker hole. It’s all about trying. We can do it!

Hi nothing to worry about as we all have similiar thoughts and feelings. We have them because we are human and not a computer! x

I have those thoughts and I hate them. I wish my thoughts would be: what to eat for lunch today and what should I wear tomorrow

Right! I wish! Some day we can be like that. But for now, we’ll just overthink everything lol
