Xx Sometimes we all have to go a little crazy just to stay sane xX
there are several good self help books on how to stop worrying and if you follow the advice you wont worry anymore
this is how i stopped my worrying years ago
If this worrying happens in the middle of night, as it frequently does with me...I get up, fix myself cocoa and crackers, sometimes take a hot bath because this relaxes me, take an Aspirin , go back to bed and listen to my little battery radio. Sometimes this works and I get back to sleep for awhile. If your worrying grabs you during the day, it helps me to take a walk or do something like clean the house, etc. Hope this helps. What's so frustrating about worrying is: what we worry about usually never happens, but I know...sometimes it's impossible to stop. Take care, Nan
Sometimes that discomfort you feel is your consicence trying to communicate something to you. The worse thing to do is indulge in eating or drinking to drown out the message.
In that Obitz book they have those TEA forms, and those are helpful in getting thoughts straightened out.
