Constantly worried about my friends/family members dying.
« on: May 03, 2014, 06:21:38 PM »
I can't get these thoughts out of my head. If my boyfriend hasn't phoned/text me for a day or so I'll automatically think something bad has happened :( I'll just invision him in a car accident or something :( If my dad says he'll be home at 4pm and it's 4:10pm I'll worry like crazy :( I will phone my boyfriend/father if they're a few minutes late and if they don't answer all these "what ifs?" are racing through my head.

I babysat my nephew a few months ago (who was 4 months at the time) and he fell asleep, I just watched him breathe for 30 minutes because I was scared of cot death :( God help me if I have my own child.

I also worry about my own health a lot. I had a mouth ulcer a few weeks back which didn't heal for ages and I thought it was cancer :(

Logically I know this is all irrational but I can't help but think these things. I just wish these thoughts would go away :(

I have a 2 year old and ever since he was born I will wake up in the middle of the night to check if he's breathing its horrible. I also worry about me a lot like if I get chest pains I automaticly think I'm having a heart attack. Or if I get a headache that doesn't go awayfast I think the worse also sometimes I'm afraid to fall asleep

Boooy do I get this. It's life consuming. My anxiety switches on and off. First I'll obsessively worry about my health for about a month, then I'll obsessively worry about my friends and family dying. Then it'll jump back to my own health. I'm just so tired of it all.

How is anyone supposed to get a grip on this?

I would just like to turn my thoughts off a lot of the time :( It's like I'm living in a constant nightmare, I know these thoughts aren't real but I always worry that they may be true :(

Yes it is a nightmare, I guess this is some kind of ocd or at least that's what my physc said it was do you take anything for the anxiety

They want to give me meds but I'm kinda scared to take them right now, so I'm trying other things with my therapist. If they don't work out I'll have to go on the meds after all.
