Constantly overthinking!

Posted , 3 users are following.

I have been overhtinking for a very long time. I don't know when it started but now its become more of a lifestlye to me. Everything that happens or an important meeting coming up i always overthink and think the negative side to it! Every night I go sleep sometimes I even cry nmyself to sleep cos I think my future might be bad or that I'm not good enough for anything or anyone.

I work as a support worker, supporting vulnerbale women who have been through domestic violence. Ever since I've started working this role I've been more stressed and anxious. Like if I was to get married someday what will my future husband be like...will he be nice or abusive i dont know why i think like this cause it just makes matters even more worse!

Sometimes at night i get a lot of flashbacks of horirble thigns that have happened to me in the past like when people have picked on me at school and how other people used to treat me... its stuff like that, that really gets to me and honestly upsets me and makes my anxiety worse!

I do need help but sometimes im so confused I dont even what to do like I dont know if im making the wrong decision or the right decision. I dont think I have much control over myself sad

      I haven't told my doctor that yet but I think I need to cause its getting to a point where I'm constantly feeling upset and scared. I hate having to feel like this so im gonna put a stop to it and just tell my GP.

      The reason why i havent told my GP in the frist place was becasue i thought could handle it myself but i clearly cantsad i need help.

      It sounds to me as though its at the point where you need to have a little discussion with your GP now. Go, don't put it off because you have clearly recognised you at at that point where you need support

    Gradually over time aswe getolder we learn how to cope with the things that trigger us. It sounds as though your job can stress you out sometimes so you need to find ways if you wish to continue in a supportive career, of helping people without taking on board all thier grief and sadness
