I feel exsctly the same way. Whenever I watch a movie I lose interest and my anxiety starts and its so hard not to think of it. But once the bad thoughts come let them in. And ignore them. Imagine them as totally harmless thoughts and imagine it as a wave coursing over you which will not harm you. And once you accept it it'll be easier. Also, distract yourself. Try to focus on the movie. I seek comfort thinking alot of people out there are like me suffering from this. If they make it through so can I. It's very comforting. I hope you get better soon.
