Does anyone else find their anxiety brings up mistakes from ages ago and calls you names that you don’t believe and you just get so down and like the thoughts just don’t go away? I play over in my head what people have called me or what I call myself and it’s stuck. It’s things I haven’t even thought of in years. My body is on edge. Will this ever end?

Yes I do this especially when I am very down. I find what helps though is then to consciously think of all the great things and people that have happened in my life as a sort of balance. This always makes me feel better.
I have found that sometimes it's jealousy that caused others to be so mean, and that has been the case with me coz I have an extrovert personality and a good sense of humour. These types of people will do anything to pull you down to their level won't they?
I remember being at a pub once really enjoying myself. I was wearing a short skirt and a nice blouse (I am tall and was slim then with good legs so I could get away with it, I was also young). A short fat dumpy women tried to tell me my skirt was too short, so I made the point that I could get away with it whereas short fat people couldn't with a meaningful look at her. Then I walked off ha ha. She never tried to criticise me again. x
My head plays things over n over n over. It’s never quiet. Even from years ago.
I think it does eventually. When I hear these voices I have one I "call on" and she says the opposite of what the horrible, she reminds me that I have come out of all the things of my past and I am worthy of all the blessings I have gotten. She always reminds me that it is my mental illness.
That seems to work. My husband always whispers in my ear that everything is going to be alright and that seems to work at times. Keeping you in my prayers.
