In regard to anxiety disorders, what you fear the most cannot happen. People with panic disorders are afraid they are losing control and/or having a heart attack. People who truly do lose control are not aware of it. People having heart attacks are aware of the crushing sensation in their body...
I stumbled upon this website this morning while I was googling about “going crazy”
I am so glad I did. What’s listed, I pretty much have every single fear. This doctor says basically if you think you’re crazy or think you’re going to lose control then YOU ARE NOT!
when I was younger my anxiety/panic attacks were always the fear of having some rare form of cancer, or a brain eating amoeba (always something strand and very rare like that)
but lately, my anxiety and panic attacks stem from a fear of going psychotic, actually losing my mind or losing control of my actions. I keep telling myself “you know, YOU KNOW it’s your anxiety, your latest obsession, but y’all know how it is with anxiety, we convince ourselves it REALLY IS TRUE THIS TIME!! That whatever we fear is legit and actually is going to happen.
so. I really needed this today.
can anyone relate?Am I the only one who has legit fears of losing my mind and having to be institutionalized? If so, how did your fears get better? Did you beat it? Come on people, give me some hope!!
