 I have been told by a professional, that I "Think too much" 
 I believe that I am much more sensitive than everyone else. That's why I think about things...
I have a thought for all of you...
 Have you stopped and thought of things that you were so really afraid of when you were younger and wondered if this was the start of something ?
For instance, recently this memory came in my mind.
I remember being very young ( under 5) and just crying when my parents would drive to town, and take the "Rocky Road" way to get there... I was a gravel road I remember that.
I remember being so afraid, (maybe it was the noise of the rocks hitting on the car ?)  and crying all the way down the road. My parents would just get very angry at me.
  I also remember, pleading and praying in my head that they would turn rt, ( the paved way) and not left. I would be so relieved when they wouldn't go that way. This for some reason was a huge fear for me.
Eventually, the road got paved. I remember feeling so relieved and happy.
Anyone else ?

Hi there panic queen,

I've had anxiety since childhood and I know that it is part of who I am. I had it in me since childhood. Almost everyone in my family had anxiety. Also I was bullied a few times in school and it has affected the way I think now as an adult. Both genetic and enviromental factors play a large role in developing our personality. Did you know that our personality is developed by the age of 5 or 6 years old? So what we experience in the first five to six years will greatly influence who we become later in life.

I used to do this a lot, but since my therapy I've had to learn to put the past away and not dwell so much which has been great :) You are very right though PQ. . . When we do go through so much it makes us wonder at times :)

Great info Melodee, you are so right as well :)

I don't think I'm dwelling on the past. I know that there is nothing you can do to change it.
I know that I have learned a great deal from the past. This will only make my future better.
I just think sometimes how at times the "fear" is so real, and if you really think about it, it's silly. Of course this is after all of the panic, ER visit meds ect...lol

I just wondered what caused me to feel so afraid of the "rocky road" at such a young age ?

This is just me blabbering....Thanks for reading

I dwell on the past a lot. It's a difficult habit to break.

I guess I am the type that wants to know why, what, who , and how .
Not to place blame, but to understand it all . How things all come into play in this panic.
It makes me feel better when I can "figure" it out.

I can relate to what you wright as I have had anxiety for most of my life and tend to look back on things that have happened in the past, an example for me would be when I was about 5ish and my parents had got a baby sitter as they were going out I would cry and beg them not to go as I thought they were not going to come back. I had some CAT therapy which helped me look back and piece together why I am anxious but i still need to work on moving on and not worrying about the past as much.

Take Care
