    You are going to have to find something that keeps you so entrolled and so busy you dont have any time to give this energy. Do you run? Running is useful. Do you workout, i mean a serious workout. Do you like building things? Build something build a garage or a shed in your yard. You get what im saying here. You cant have any downtime or so little down time available to you. You think too much and in the same familial negative patterns. Therefore find something that doesnt allow you to think. Paint your whole house.Its that or get really good at meditation or seek out hypnosis, but you need a really good hypnotist to deal with this. People with anxiety disorders tend to be very suseptible to ideas oddly. Thats all i got.

      Cant chill much. You cant be left with your thought for a while. Not until you stop reliving the same patterns over and over. Take on a bigger, busier project. Its your saving grace to keep very very busy. You look young in your picture so maybe older neighbors can use your help with stuff around their house. Its a win win kind of thing and it will lift up your sense of self a ton. Just an idea. Even if its walking their dogs or banging a few nails in the wall for them. Very rewarding too,

    I have an obsession with breathing, thank goodness.

    If can cannot understand or put your mind at rest regards eyes and blinking see your GP. Are you spending to much time on the laptop, that can cause problems with the eyes.

    One symptom goes and another arrives.

    But you haven't got a life-threatening illness so be grateful.

    Hi,

    Your blinking thing sound like an obsession. Have you seen a doc yet? Not just for meds but there may be other therapies out there to help with anxiety.

    I'm currently on anti-deps but also on a course called CFT compassion focus therapy. Deals with how to treat yourself with respect and in turn others.

    I don't have physical compulsions but my thoughts are obsessive sometimes.
