my mind automatically looks for intrusive thoughts
« on: May 17, 2014, 10:28:26 AM »
I feel so frustrated this morning...it's like the minute I open my eyes in the morning my mind automatically looks to see if I'm thinking of all the scary thoughts I have. It starts the day off with extreme anxiety and I feel so defeated. I'm on my fourth day of citalopram today and I pray it starts working soon. I am trying some of the exercises that encourage me to not run from the intrusive thoughts, but it's hard. I feel like I'm losing it.

That's a good idea! I know exercise is good because also releases the endorphins that help bring about happiness. My thoughts are there all the time too...it's debilitating at times.
