hanabee Posted September 24, 2017 Share Posted September 24, 2017 I have horrible anxiety. Especially with the hurricane in Puerto Rico. My boyfriend has family there and we are suppose to visit in October. My anxiety has gone hay wired and my mind has jumped to worst case scenarios. That’s how my brain works, it jumps to the worst case so I can plan and prep for it. While I’m doing all of this I can see that I’ve cause him to go from calm to worrisome panic because of my behavior. I’m stricken with guilt but I’ve been able to help him feel better. Seeing him feel better made me feel better too. But now the worry is back and it just clouds my mind with these dark thoughts that it’s gonna be horrible. I can’t shut it off. I want to. I try to distract myself but it just keeps going back to it. It’s like the older I get the more I’m anxiety ridden. I stress about a scenario that hasn’t happened for the fear it will happen. I rack my brain in this stress and it’s all in my mind. I know it is.... I know what’s happening but I can’t stop this boiling feeling in my gut that attacks my chest. My heart just beats much faster and I need to get a solution or else I’ll burst. I don’t want to be medicated but I just really don’t know how I can keep my anxiety in check. Link to comment
