Over the past 4 or 5 years I believe I have developed Generalized Anxiety Disorder and possibly a slight case of OCD. Over the past year I have noticed my symptoms have become increasingly worse. Practically everyday I am worried about something and I will be worrying about it/overthinking it for hours and hours. I also have noticed that it almost comes in waves. Like I will randomly start to worry about a particular thing that has already taken place in the past (such as social situation, a fear of mine, or just something that has to do with me) and I will start to dwell on it. I become very anxious and I will constantly think about this particular thing in my head and I'll continuously have to repeat things in my mind to try and manage my worries (it never works though). Anyways, this particular worry of mine will bother me for days, even weeks, then I'll randomly get over it and something else will begin to bother me. It's like a vicious cycle. Right when I get over what had previously bothered me, something else will just pop up into my head and I'll begin to worry about it and think about every possible negative outcome. If you have anxiety, do you experience something similar? Do you have any tips on how to deal with this? I am also willing to get professional help if that seems like the best option. Thanks for all answers! (Sorry the post was so long hahaha)
