Can anyone give me any advice?
How can i control obsessive thoughts of really really really bad things that are going to happen to me in the near future?
I USED TO suffer with severe anxiety – for many years. Life was a mess. Somehow things changed. I saw a counsellor. Got a job. Made new friends. Travelled. Moved on.
Life has been nice for almost 4 years. Then suddenly...out of the blue...BANG.
I have been taken over by the worst anxiety ever. Thoughts I cannot control. Possible problems I cannot see a solution to - problems that dont exist now but are likely to exist in the near future which will have horrendous consequenses. I have been shaking and hyperventilating. I have been sitting still for hours on end thinking about what to do. And realising there is nothing i can do. I have scared myself by considering s****** as a possible option to avoid these unbearable consequenses.
After 4 years of peace in the space of less than a week everything has changed. Im really scared and i just want to put a halt to things. I dont want to deteriorate any further. I need to do something quick. I liked being normal and i really want to go back to that again.
I believe im having some kind of relapse and im p****ed off. I thought this was history not a life long affliction....and i dont know what to do.
