Hello everyone. Any of you ever get the feeling/relentless thoughts that you are going crazy or losing your mind? I have been really struggling with that today. I hate the feeling, and I can't seem to shake it. I just am so scared that if I go crazy, it'll ruin everything in my life. I would lose my jobs, my husband, my independence. I don't know, I just feel like I am going to lose control and I want this feeling to end. Any advice would be great. Sorry if this post is rambling at all.

Hi k07101120. Feeling completely overwhelmed and thinking you're going crazy can be a regular feature of severe anxiety. Happens to me on a frequent basis when my wife leaves for overnight trips. They say if you think you're going crazy, you're not. I don't know how true that saying is but I do know when you start obsessing about the consequences if you had gone crazy, it just makes the I'm crazy thinking stronger.

Just try to assume you're not crazy and be thankful that all of those fears of what would happen if you were will settle down.

Struggling with that myself lately. I honestly just kind of sob and wonder what happened to me. I wonder when it’s gonna get better. I don’t have any answers but I think it’s important to remember the sun always shines through dark clouds. It’s rough right now and we feel overwhelmed with the weight of fear but it’s gonna be okay one day.

It is very difficult to deal with. I am doing better today, I haven't been struggling with that, but I also have kept myself fairly busy today. I think those thoughts plague me the most when I am idle. I hope that things get better for you as well!

I may act totally crazy to others but I actually never feel I’m going crazy. Maybe it’s just how I’ve always acted. I do feel like I’m not in my late fifties but still a young man. Unfortunately my body is not always able to do what it used to. It’s starting to hit me hard facing the fact I do not have the stamina like I used to, which causes me to be depressed and feel like my Co-works would rather have a younger more serious person then myself! One thing I do know, even in my worst state of anxiety and fear, is that it will pass, usually in a day! This I go by, but it is very tough to get through it.

At least once a week I feel or think I've gone crazy. It's just serve Anxiety, now I tell myself oh well go crazy what's the worst that can happen? I'm sick of worrying about all these stupid things it's exhausting to say the least and it really leads nowhere.
