I am new to this forum. I have been feeling extremely Anxious for a past 2 weeks now. It is mostly work related and I mostly end up thinking worst case scenario related to my future. It is causing me trouble to sleep and have lost appetite completely. Recently I started feeling chills as well even when it is really warm. I need help how to tackle this problem.
Extremely Anxious: I am new to this... - Anxiety and Depre...
Hi am04 and welcome! Anxiety has a way of painting the worst picture possible and convincing us that it's going to come true. When you have these catastrophic thoughts, maybe try to tell yourself that they are irrational and then think about some realistic situations for yourself. The mind tends to believe the negative but we can counteracted with positive and realistic thinking. Hope you feel better😊
Thanks for reply IheartDogs
I have been trying to tell myself that everything will be fine but it only works for couple of minutes. I end up having same thouts again. Sometimes I just don't feel like getting out of bed and going to work. I even go for a walk outside to distract myself. Take breaks while I am at work. Some rare days it works but mostly it doesn't. I also think of I talk to my friends about problem I am facing they will just call me a whimp and crybaby.
