What does normal feel like ? Cuz I forgot lol
« on: December 17, 2013, 09:43:47 PM »
It's been 2 years everyday now with this general anxiety.... I have completely lost a sense of normality.... All my mind knows is anxiety, anxious thinking , and trying to get out of this hell.... I analyze everything and every thought that passes through my mind, it's a habit now obviously, when I try to change it causes more anxiety... What do I do? Does anyone know what I'm talking about? I feel like I forget how to think rationally and positively ... It prolly sounds stupid but does anyone get where I'm
Coming from? Any suggestions ?

I know this probably isn't the answer you expected, but have you ever tried just immersing yourself into a project or hobby? I'm not trying to be funny or anything, I just know from experience that when I am into a project that I really love I lose all my anxious thoughts. Sometimes I just think it helps to 'forget' it all by focusing your attention on something else. I took a few drawing classes a couple of years ago- charcoal drawing, and every so often when I have time I find something around the house that I would like to draw, set up my own still life, get out my charcoal pencils etc., and just draw.

Taking a breather by getting your mind off of your thoughts can help change your perspective--not to mention it can be a confidence booster when you end up with a beautiful piece of art!

I tried/still try to distract my mind but that doesn't cut it because once I'm done doing whatever I'm doing I get the same anxious thoughts and just start thinking about the anxiety , I think I'm past that point , thanks for replying tho I appreciate it

Yes, I do understand what that is like. I have never had it last an uninterrupted two years, fortunately for me, but I have gone a few weeks at a time multiple times. Eventually, I do get that feeling too, that I have forgotten what "normal" feels like. If you can shake the anxiety, it will start to return slowly but surely, but you have to be patient with it.

Do you see any psych professionals?
