Well lately I've been battling with hypochondria.
I'm trying to stop being one.
But sometimes I just feel like I'm SOOOOOOOOO happy....but it doesn't last long at all.
Then I go BACK to being this "blah" feeling.
I don't know why.
I mean I just want to be confident and ENTHUSIASTIC all the time.
I just can't seem to be enthusiastic for more then one hour... then I turn really lame, boring, and my mind starts racing and thinking about stupid things.
I just don't understand why I can't stay happy, why must my brain make up crazy stupid scenarios in my head?
Why am I thinking about very depressing sad and negative things every second?
I TRY really hard to block the sad things, but deep down inside its like my mind is trying to bring up RANDOM sad scary thoughts....

How can I be more in control of my thoughts, so I can live a better productive life?

I can relate to your struggle--in dealing with negative, racing thoughts on a daily basis. Sometimes, it feels like no matter what one does--the thoughts have a mind of their own... With therapy & meds-they can be brought under control, but it still can be draining and overwhelming at times. I hope you will find this forum helpful, and keep posting... You are not alone, there are others who can feel your pain, just know that and that will be half the battle. take care...
