Hope everyone is feeling good today! I was just wondering what are some wierd thoughts that everyone has had? Did you all have anxiety as a child?? Here are some stupid ones on mine. When I was about 10 I was a  restaurant looking out the window at all the cars going by and I remember sitting there thinking oh my gosh what if I dont live to be 16 and never get to drive. When I would use a public restroom, I would try and look the door and then hurry up and unlock it because I would think what if I pass out or something and Im in here with the door locked. I have seem to have really stupid thoughts and I really dont know why???? I know I have had alot more...... I know Im gonna be crazy when Im really old, I will probably worry everyday that Im going to have a heart attack. When I was 10 and hit puberty I was really worried because I started developing and had lumps in my chest from getting boobs, and I thought it was cancer or something, I found this lump in the center of my chest one time and went to the doctor and she said it was my breast bone. I felt stupid, that was when I was little though, but I really always worry about the stupid things, I am on birth control pills and after I read all the side effects and warnings about blood clots and things like I really start to wonder if I want to take them cause it really worries me. One time I cut myself shaving in the tub and got scared cause I didnt want any of the shave cream or soap to get in my cut, so I jumped out. I really feel like Im nuts! To look at me though you would never think that, I guess I would rather feel nuts then to have other people think Im nuts thats why I never really tell people the stuff I think or have thought!!

Yup...I remember even as a child worrying about dying etc. I also remember thinking that all my family would die and I would have no one in the world to take care of me - and as I was adopted it was a huge issue to me..
I have come to the conclusion that I have had a lifetime of bad thinking habits...and sometimes it all spills over causing panic attacks etc.
Thus the need for good friends, hugs, laughter, and sometimes a glass of red wine lol.

I believe that most A/Ppeeps have had this happen and still do it is pat of the A/P process it grabs hold of you and wont let go eating on your fears worries and doubts
'You need to find other things to occupy you minds such as reading meditaion, relaxation cd's all kinds of things are out there as well as comedy shows and laughter it is the BEST med there is IMO
Even going out into nature get you up n away from puter all the time doing alot of good for our minds and bodies as well
Exercising the mind and the body is crucial IMO
Just my 1 and a half cents lol
Take care

I remember as a child.....not worrying and feeling normal. Sorry i have to be the odd one out. I think at times, life just hands us more than the brain can take, therefore, now i panic. I used to be very outgoing, now im a shell of who i was....
i agree with lyn, if i let my mind go its bad news, gotta keep busy mind and body.
Im sorry that to many have done this thier entire lives. i thought 9 years was bad enough. God Bless
