Have any of you went through a period of fear, worry, anxiety that’s sparked by overthinking worry about so much. Or fear everything points to a bad sign or stuff to come? Then you get worried about that thinking the worse and then your a complete mess?

I began to be a negative after all of the stuff started happening in life.

No your definitely not alone, I always think I’m alone.

My husband tells me I need to be positive

Brokenworry18, your husband is absolutely correct in that you need to be positive. All that worry we do about the past and the future just exacerbates

our already high fear levels. We can't do anything about the past and worrying about the future is out of our control. The only thing we do have is today. The present moment. When we consolidate our worries to this moment in time, it becomes less threatening.

I use Mindfulness Meditation/DeepBreathing. It brings me back to reality which in truth is today. Working with Positive Confirmations can allow the negative thoughts to decrease. Nothing can happen overnight. It takes time and practice to get back to a calmer, safer place in our mind. Once our mind is there, our body will follow. Wishing you Positivity, Calmness and Peace. xx

Thank you so very much! What do I do with the impending doom thoughts?

I always ask myself, Is this thought useful?? The answer is always no when it pertains to a doom and gloom recurring thought. I turn to something more physical to take my mind off the thoughts as well as move my muscles. In time, those thoughts will come into play less and less. Those thoughts are not rational and I refuse to have it take over my mind. Practice makes perfect. It took a long time for us to get this way and will take time, patience and effort to get rid of what is nothing more than a habit. xx

Your in a position now Brokenworry where you are constantly questioning yourself as to why these things keep happening. It is only when you accept the fact that anxiety is causing you to feel this way by emitting large amounts of adrenaline coursing throughout you. By starting to listen to meditations that use deep breathing and calming words and advice, will your body start relaxing. x

Thank you! I never ever thought that way.... I guess I think it’s more than anxiety so I freak myself else! And so much more. Or everything I do is a sign or a crow or butterfly or dream everything is bad signs.

We have been and are still undergoing Great anxiety. Debts, DWP problems, family separation, Traumatic Brain Injury... it all adds up. We are praying for a brighter future for everyone once we can stop the risk of deadly roads (that is how I got my TBI in the first place). Have a nice day.

I find that if I have a protein shake for one meal or two a day it makes me feel better Gail

I should try that. I keep getting thoughts and it’s making my anxiety go up!

Reply

Maybe try listening to yoga and meditation music it does help Gail

Reply

Ok I’ll try that!

Everyone tries to say do yoga or meditation. The truth is find things that make you happy and roll with it. If you live your life in worry, you will never grow from it. I constantly deal with anxiety and I get a little better a coping everytime!

Reply

Thank you. I’m trying I get these thoughts and now I’m worried again

Reply

When I get worried I look up webmd. Then I get f***** because I diagnose myself when things don’t have nothing to do with me. Back pain turns into the thought of cancer, etc... We have to hear people say “are you just stressed?” People don’t understand it’s not just stress, it’s the build up of racing thoughts that sometimes we can’t control alone. You need to work on being happy and distracting yourself. You’ve lived long enough to have a wonderful family and I’m sure you’ll have many more years to come! Even if we all a short time to live, do you want to waste it thinking how can I keep thinking about being sad? :).

Breath, sleep, let lexipro kick in you relax you. Learn coping techniques with the medication so you can get off of it in the future.

I’m going to ask you for advice the next time I have an issue, deal?

Reply

Deal! Thank you!

you have to promise yourself that you will not check Dr Google, or webmd or any of those sites until you start to feel better without them.

They are like "crack" for us who have health anxiety..........it is a bad idea!

Right? :)

Omg yes!!!!! I google everything even dreams

GAME OVER.

NO more googling anything.

IF you need reassurance, you have to CALL somebody on the phone or go see them face to face.

The screen is NOT your friend when you have health anxiety.
