Overthinking negative thoughts are ruining my life !!

I can't stop overthinking about negative thought about my self or ours that are close to me!! , sometimes it's my only self hat I think bad of , it's like I can't stop overthinking & it's really taking over and living in fear 😥 Ever since I was younger I knew I had anxiety but didn't know what it was & this worrying and overthinking started too but I ever told anyone only my mother , but ever since my mom passed away my anxiety and ovethoughts got worse . She was the only o turned too when I overthink or fear about something in my thought that wouldn't leave my head and I would keep reminding my self about the bad thought 😥 , at nights before I sleep I always think about death or something like the world is gonna end , it scares me and makes me just sit up and have a panic attack . I also have a toddler so that makes it hard too because I always look at her and cry cause I hate how I think so badly about my self , is there anyone out their that has he same thing ? Or any help with this 😥😥

Hey Brianna. Yes, I feel the exact same way as you. I have a fear of death and just posted couple days ago about it. Also, I constantly envision the worst for myself and my loved ones, whether it be getting involved in a horrific accident, a terrible disease, suffering, etc. always around if you want to talk.

Yep. When I was younger and had a younger child I worried obsessively about my death and leaving her. As we all know it's not rational. The odds of someone who is young enough to have a toddler mostly point to you having a long life, at the very least until your children are grown. I was so worried about leaving my child an orphan and here I am a grandmother. I get it. My father passed away and it devastated me but I'm still here. Obsessing about the inevitable just makes us sick and wastes our time. The goal is to focus on the wonderful life that you have today for you and your child.

Trust me I know. There was a point when I could barely go grocery shopping because I was worried something horrible was going to happen to me and I wouldn't be there for her. Panic attacks every time. While I was doing that unfortunately ( in retrospect) I wasn't fully there for her. Anxious people tend to love too much.

Right but hear what I'm saying. As much as we think we're still being the ultimate mom at the time if you're sitting up worrying about when you're going to fall out somewhere you cannot be fully there for your child. I wish I haf grasped that earlier. Don't make the mistake I made. I worried so much and all for nothing. nothing bad ever happened. Don't do it sweetheart.
