I have anxiety and sometimes I suffer from it. I am also intelligent and capable but when my stomach churning at 3 am keeps me awake I feel anything but! I feel that if anything goes "wrong" then it's all my fault. For example, I'm frightened that I will hurt my baby when I'm changing him. I'm frightened that I will lose my job if I make a mistake.I have had CBT and it's been an enormous help because I can recognise that the examples I have described are just thoughts based in "extreme thinking", i.e. worst case scenarios somewhat divorced from reality. Can anyone else identify with this?
