Rumination & worrying about the future?

Rumination & worrying about the future?

Hi guys just signed up to this website, it seems like many people share the same issues & problems. I am glad to see that I am not the only one. I just wanted to see if there are any other people on this forum who suffer with severe rumination & worrying about the future.

I am currently taking meds & have also had long CBT therapy. I just feel that anxiety has always had the edge on me. I just can’t seem to figure out a way to stop these racing thoughts, they completely knock you out for the whole day.

  • When my anxiety was at its absolute worst, derealization and all, I had your exact same symtoms, and still do a little from time to time. Anxiety makes you do that. It takes you out of the present moment because all you feel is doom. At least that's my symptoms

  • Hiya,

    Thank you for your reply.

    I definitely feel the same way.

    Deep down I know that this is all related to me being anxious, however I sometimes cant help but give it fuel.

    I have started going to the gym again, it was hard signing up to be honest.

    i went early morning today, then came back home & spent the entire day just worrying, like worrying like crazy.

  • Yeah I started going back to the gym too, 5-6 days out the week and as long as you're listening to good music while you workout, I find it helps me. But trust me I know exactly what you mean. I would worry about things like everybody's health and safety including my own, I would obsess about what year it is and 100 years from the year I was born which will be 2085 lol. I would literally obsess about what if something happens to me or someone I love. Just all complete doom. I would even sit there and worry and cry

  • What are your thoughts like?

  • Anxiety is an overproduction of thought leading to negativity...try to create space in your head...walk in the country, listen to music that you love, find a hobby or friends that take you OUT of your own head.....help others to stop self thought...best wishes

  • Hi Stde,

    Many thanks for you reply & sorry for the late reply.

    Your words are definitely true helping others is something i am trying to do. it makes your problems seem minor compared to what other real big problems people have in the world we live in today.

    Best wishes
