Hi everyone. I am new here. I am in my 30s and have this crazy fear of hearing voices and going crazy. I dwell on it! I am on guard and keep thinking it might happen. Now, I am a pretty reasonable guy with a history of OCD and anxiety. But, it went away (90%) for many years. Suddenly, it has come back hard.
In the last 16 months…
Bought a new home
Moved to another town
Still own the other home (first time landlord)
Hospitalized for a bad viral infection
Got hit in the face with a flying bat (the animal)
Stress at work
So, I might be answering my own question. However, last week the fear was cancer. This week I suddenly spend every minute worrying I am going to lose my mind, hear voices, and go nuts. It’s a real fear. My wife is supportive, but does not know what goes on in the mind of a person with anxiety and OCD. Can I actually lose it from all that I went thru?
Aside from this, I am a very happy guy that loves life and I just want the demons to rest and my mind to be at peace. Thanks for listening.
