I often find myself imagining that my husband is doing terrible or just stupid things only to find out he's not. It's like I start to believe it and then I feel panic or get myself all upset thinking it's true. If he is late I start thinking up things that could have happened - always bad things - and then he walks in the door and nothing is wrong. Or I will think what if he's doing "insert bad thing here" and then I play the whole scenario out in my head. It's not as though he has never done anything stupid or wrong, but my imagination is so much worse. I know I need to banish these thoughts because you can create your own fears. Does anyone else understand what I am trying to say? What do you do about it?
