I have anxiety and id consider it mild OCD.. Ive just started back at uni and my stress has definitely skyrocketed. Intrusive thoughts I have had throughout my life, but this particular time its really really bothered me and I can't stop thinking about it, and as soon as I remember I'm not thinking about it... I think about it. It gives me anxiety and then I feel physically sick. When i am busy i completely forget about it and feel fine, but its not long and my brain reminds me...... I am not under the care of a psychiatrist and I've been there done that and it never helped. I have recently started taking my anxiety medication again (10 days ago) so I'm just wondering.does anyone have any coping strategies? I have tried to not think about it, tell myself that its just a thought and thats its not me as a person. but its starting to make me question the person i am, its making me feel awful about myself and guilty.. and then im worried i beleive these thoughts when i KNOW thats not me.
In need of some advice.
My anxiety has gotten really bad. Ive had 3 flat tires with one blow out on highway then spin out on ramp which left me in a ditch. I wasnt hurt but now im terrified of driving. Especially when it rains and we've been getting rain everyday so i havent gone far. Just to grocery store. Ive had to cancel appts for fear of driving. I just dont lnow how to overcome it. I feel trapped.
Again I find myself wanting to say talk about what I’m feeling right now, but I can’t find the words. its frustrating. For days I’ve been feeling lost and in a panic all at the same time. I want to express myself, but I can’t get the words out. Maybe I just don’t know myself the way I should. About 2 years ago I basically had a mental break down of sorts. I feel like ever since then...
