I must die at least a dozen times a day. The dwelling is habitual and I am about to go onto medication to seek some kind of mental pacification. Lat night I drank until my mind could no longer speak or think- it was so nice…like a quiet and relaxing vacation.
The feeling swelled up in my gut and it was crippling. There might a physical reason to why you get those thoughts. If not — at least you can rest easy knowing you are healthy. The next step is to confide in someone they way you feel and possibly see a psychiatrist. You might be suffering from depression chemical imbalance in the brain and you have no control over that. They can provide treatment — request herbal remedies before going on any drugs. Yes, these chronic thoughts are the definition of despair.
It is as if they are being injected into our minds- rendering us helpless. I had severe anxiety, depression, impending doom, etc.
I was too scared to leave my house for over a year. It took 4 years for me to recover. I had been a successful buisnessman and excelled at most everything I did. I was intense. The breakdown was the best thing that ever happened to me. It knocked me on my back so that I could see the sky. Once I realized I was not the center of the universe, I was slowly able to let go of everything. As I let go, my mind slowly healed. It took years, but I made it. Good luck. How did you get to this point?
Did you go and see a psychiatrist? Therapist or what? I want to learn to let go and see myself and life as not being the centre of the Universe. This is pretty cool. I am working on it every single day, letting go that is.
This kind reminder should help speed up the process so please keep them coming. Take care and I hope to here from you soon. Thanks Kerry. This is a hard path to tread and I am glad that I could be of some service. Please remain in touch.
Weiss, MD. I like how the author simply tells without trying to convince you of anything. He is sharing the experience, not preaching…. I was concerned my thinking about something bad happening may be willing it on further, like i was in actual fact willing it to happen, against my will. As confusing as that sounds lol, but i have come to the simple conclusion, that despite the amount of thoughts ive had, i am not dead, therefore it seems the thoughts are simply an over-evaluation of the dangers of something which probably could happen, but rarely will.
Personally, i realise the chances are, none of these fates will ever happen, so i take these thoughts with a pinch of salt, when weighing up the idea of something bad happening, with the rarity of that occurence, makes it a lot easier to let the thought pass.
I practice letting go or as they say in my world Surrender to what IS. But when I do it is calming, soothing and I can think straight. Death doesnt scare me as much as being an invalid or incapacitated or becoming a vegetable. I dont mind the dying, since there are worse things than that. Guess that is Relative Acceptance.
As for thoughts of impending doom…I look to logic — Most things outside of my own behaviour to the events are out of my control, so the only thing I can do is go with the flow with the best behaviour I can muster.
At least, at the end of the event, I can look back and see how far I have come from what I was. I believe in the fact that none of the things that happens in our life is a coincidence, they happen because of how we thought, intended and acted. So if we make a conscious decision to think Positive, things around us will be compelled to work towards that Intention.
Its a ripple effect. I am sorry to hear you are going through this. I also know even though it may not seem like it now- that you will be okay. Once you develop some none medicated tools to deal with a vivid and anxious mind things get easier. Thank you for sharing your experience with me. One thing i am grateful for is that they have become more and more manageable and less dominant in my life. There is a long story about why I think this is.
You make me so happy. Just as this moment occurred, I had an intrusive thought about losing her. I can identify traumas in my life in the past where these two things would have been paired, particularly in early childhood. Thanks for leaving this comment. You raise some really vital points. I am curious about how you have dealt with your anxiety if you would like to share. I know well the fine line between fear and love and I find that fear often gets in the way of me fully loving.
Because of all of my trauma with parents and my life long struggle with awful anxiety I wonder if I am even capable of being filled with only love. I work on it everyday. To dissolve the fear that exists when I love.
The more strongly I love often the more fear I struggle through. For you it may manifest as the fear of actually killing the object of your love for me the fear causes me to pull away and constrict. Yes being able to fully love does mean killing that part of ourselves that has struggled so long with fear and anxiety. Maybe this is what intense love really has the potential to kill. Hi, I just want to reply to your post, Mel. It was interesting to read your story. My anxiety is totally linked with love like it was the other side of the coin.
So you can imagine that I barely have relationships and I usually run away from falling in love because of the connections I made in my mind. But the conflict of wanting this person and the fear of approaching him brought my anxiety into full blown. Of course, what we think is never EVER the reality. Our fantasies are just there to protect us from living a normal life. Sometimes I wonder, why do we ever bother to think if all we think sometimes is just negative? Oh, and I also have fear of feelings and the heart the physical and metaphorical heart, too which explains why i shun away from real relationships.
Anxiety is in our thoughts because we let it, because we have, at a subliminal level, emotional problems left unresolved. So, I suggest to dig them up by talking about your feelings, your past and then, if you discover the problem, try to make a plan to see how you can change this. Really try to observe your anxiety episodes like you were seating in chair, in the cinema hall.
What caused the episode? I know that this is against the buddhist way of living, I, too practice acceptance but i think is more important to understand yourself. But you have to dig up!
Understand the real reasons of your anxiety. Write down in a diary the thought that came and brought the panic. I think this is the only way to bring peace in our lives. However, the process is long and we have to be active and try hard if we want to get rid of the anxiety for good. There are solutions but unfortunately, there is no general cure. Every person has to find their own way to the cure.
Everything is possible if you really make an effort! I am so intrigued with your theory. Could you share more of your story? All I can think about are trees falling through the roof onto me amd my 8 month old son. Glad you have someone to talk to and of course we are always here. Your welcome Birdy, im glad your feeling abit better today.
No hurry.. That terror you mentioned Mary I am going to go outside and hang some washing, maybe I will water the veg patch for just a bit and breathe. I will try to be gentle with myself. Please breathe in After you water your veggie patch, maybe some mindfulness practice outside in your back yard with your chickens would be so adorably calming, watching them pecking around We are all here for you, holding your hand, holding you up Some meditation, yoga, reading, puzzles Please try your hardest..
Can you ring someone? Just to talk to Just hang in there now Yes, as you said, go outside, hang your washing, water your veggie patch Maybe observe your surroundings Maybe by observing your surroundings, it will quieten the terror within a little And in the here and now Very true Birdy, it will pass.
It always does. In the meantime I have pulled up a few comfy chairs, and made a big pot of tea and coffee. There is nothing I would enjoy more right now than to sit right here with you, and hopefully Grandy too. You are welcome to talk if its helpful, otherwise, I'm very good at companionable silence. You are stronger than you think You also have a super kind heart too :- I noticed you mentioned that you have a difficult week ahead. I have no doubt that you will have a great week.
When I have a hard week coming up I make an appointment with my GP and have a talk about whats going through my mind.

I have realised that I have been having these feelings semi-frequently for the last few years. My life is good.
I am safe. In my house. Consistently not committing crimes. I feel so vulnerable. Guest blueVoices member. And now that I've posted here, I wont lose you.

I can relate and understand your feelings, my Psych said to me that, that feeling is consistent with very high anxiety, Wondering Birdy If you have seen your gp to get a referral to a psychologist, and get you a mental health care plan started, please Birdy, do you think you are able to do this for you?
