My "warped thoughts" i was having had went away for a few days and i'd been able to keep a positive attitude about everything after starting MoodGym, but i got really upset with my boyfriend last night and today the thoughts are just everywhere sad ! I just keep imagining all these horrible things happening to me...if i dont control this thinking soon, i may end up being a recluse...and who wants that? lol.

Hey Mizzbeeutiful :)

That is how it is with this dd my friend. . . One step forward and two steps back at times. It comes down to practicing the techniques you have learned to help you over and over until they become second nature. You are doing great and there is no wrong way unless you just give up and don't try at all :)

Everything will be okay. . . if you have not done this already, check out our Anxiety-Panic Resources thread at the top of our forum. There are several great links on there for different ways to combat your Scary/Warpy Thoughts :) We also have a thread on this that you might want to read and learn some techniques from as well :)

Good luck!
Much Love, Hugs, Peace & Comfort . . . Your Bro . . . Sam :)

Well sweetie I hope you can kick your stinkin thinkin to the curb and get feeling better soon. Maybe you should try to get back on to the CBT to see if that will help to calm you. Sorry you are having a rough time, I know when I argue with my hubby my anxiety kicks in big time. Sending healing thoughts your way!

Hugs,

When you fall off the horse you just get back on, so picture a big red stop sign and stop the crazy thoughts from taking over.  Kick them to the curb and get back on that horse.

Keep working on the CBT, you can always go back or a section if you needed to.  I have faith in you.

I had a bad night with my thoughts too. Last night my vision was a little blurry. No doubt from being very tired and too much time on the computer yesterday. But that would be REASONABLE thinking. Instead I think I'm in trouble, and something is wrong with my vision or a tumor or something. Ugh. Today I'm trying to relax and tell myself I'm okay. But it's hard. :( I hate going backwards.

Hi, there!

Remember that you probably won't have one smooth, steady climb out of the hole anxiety creates in our lives. Sometimes, there will be potholes in the road. Accept them for just that, though: they're not total roadblocks, they won't completely stop your growth -- they just slow you down for a bit and make you think, "Hey, Why does that thing have to be there? It could have messed up my car (day)." You will have good days again, and you will likely have not-so-good ones that you are slowly learning how to manage.

I think overcoming our anxiety doesn't mean having it vanish; I think it means learning how not to let it prevent us from living the lives we want.

I agree that it won't vanish, I don't think there is a cure really. We just manage better, and medications and therapy can help us do that. But we are still gonna have our moments!

Thanks, you guys are so helpful, I think the fact that I didn't get much sleep last night and then had class this morning also contributed to the issue, I'm gonna go back to MoodGym when I'm done with some of my work to restore my positive thoughts ;-) and try to avoid confrontations with him late at night also because I know that's not helpful at all.

That is great my friend :) MoodGYM has helped so many of us on here and I know it will work for you as well :)

Take care and have a nice day!
