Hello all!!Just wanted to share with you all whats been on my mind lately!! I cant stop thinking about death lately.I mean this is not the first time i've been like this i know it comes with the territory! But i cant live for thinking about dieing.It's crazy but if i wake up in the morning feeling good I'll start wondering Why do i feel this good, something is bound to happen.I guess I'm just not use to feeling good! When i feel something i"ve never felt before i'm always thinking am i going ot die!! It's like the thought of dieing has become some what of an obssesion to me! LIke i said i get like this every know and again.So i know eventually I'll stop thinking about it but until that time comes i just keep obsessing about it.Please give me some feed back guys!!! skull

Good Morning Panike
Sometimes we spend an excessive amount of time rolling over again and again in our minds nagging thoughts.

I have found that what helps to deal with the anxiety and OCD is to recognize the intrusive thoughts as just a manifestation of my disorder. I regard them as unreal and as a symptom of the OCD and Anxiety. I  refocus my thought on something constructive. An example is when I get a thought that people are talking about me, I will say to myself, "That is not true, it is the OCD/Anxiety  talking."
In other words it is the "Stinkin Thinkin"  that Lyn has identified as what we are experiencing.

Obsessive thoughts are very difficult to deal with, but you can learn to cope with them. You need to work hard at finding the good in the bad and recognizing the "false alarms" for what they really are. With a combination of medication and behavior therapy, obsessions can be managed.

Thank you kitt,I hope you are doing ok today! I do understand what you are saying and i do try to block it out but sometimes its like it gets stuck in my head!!! It is so frustrating i try to tell my self it's not real but once again my mind is not accepting that!!! I hate especially at night when i'm all alone. My husband works from 8PM-8AM so i'm here all that time by myself thats when it really gets scary.I always think i'm going to die here by myself!!! Hopefully the feeling will go away soon!!!
