Impending doom thoughts and waves of it

It's really bad and I'm trying not to panic but it's really fucking scary. Please tell me I'm not dying and that I'm not the only one. It's the first time that I've let the waves hit me without asking my bf for his support. I'm scared shitless right now...

What are you scared of? Anything in particular? I know of nothing you should be afraid of. Talk to me if you need to.

Thank you Bonnie ❤️. I just have a lot on my mind... I wrote down my triggers and I came up with a lot of things. I'm okay now. It just sucked bc I took the wave of fear and I didn't run away... its scary when that happens.

Would you say that it's scary but you also took on the wave of fear and also weathered it like a storm? It seems to me that you took a giant leap forward into a position of strength. Not that you could feel the strength but you know you were strong.

I can assure you that you're not dying. You most certainly are not the only one with these feelings. I live with this feeling almost constantly. Some days are better than others. You just have to work on telling yourself that if you have come this far with these intrusive thoughts without dying, that you're not going to die. And then you have to believe it!

Keep yourself as occupied as possible. Do something that keeps you engaged within it and keeps your thoughts else where. Find a new hobby or do something that you love. Pick up a book or watch a movie. Keeping yourself busy will help!

You can message me if you ever need somebody to talk to! I'm sure we can relate in the anxiety department. I've experienced a lot in my four year journey with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. I'm sure there's nothing you've been through that I haven't experienced. So, seriously... I'm just a message away.

Keep your head up and your thoughts positive. Best of luck!
