I've had my best day so far in 10 weeks. 

I don't want to count my chickens before they have hatched but today this group and my own fb support group have kept me so occupied that the intrusive thought that has been bothering me for 10 weeks is almost gone,it's like a cop able faint hum.

So too all of you here and in my own group,I thank you from the bottom of my heart xxxx

    Awwww bless you Gillian,   I only joined this site three days ago and I find it so helpful,  it does take your mind off things too,  it keeps you occupied like you said.  Its not just yourself you think about when you go on here,  it's others.   You realise your not the only one and everyone give information to each other and I find it helps.

    Its always nice to let your feeling out too and does you good to talk to people who understand what you are going through.

    Glad you have had a good day today,  hope you have many more :-)

    We'll for the first 3 weeks I convinced myself that I had HIV...it consumed me,every hour of every day. I had a needle stick injury at work and just went into total panic mode.

    The results came back negative for everything and I presumed the anxiety would just go but I was a bit far gone with anxiety so I was triggered again by my own mouth. Sounds silly I know but my mouth was dry( meds) and I got this thought that my teeth felt uncomfortable and my mind wouldn't let go of it. Today the thought has just been a hum so I know now that in the next few days it will float away.

    Also had the thoughts many people get with anxiety about thinking I could hurt somebody. They don't bother me because I've had them before and I got past it and I know that they are just the thoughts of a anxious mind. I can shrug them off and they don't stick.

      Yes Gillian,   your right we do join these groups for reassurance and its great,  Im glad I joined it too.

      Its good to keep occupied to get your mind off all the thoughts,  the last three days i have gone on some nice long walks even when I haven't felt like it,  I still went,  and Im glad I did because its good exercise and it does make you feel better.

      I start my new job soon,  been worried that I am going to feel too ill to go,  but to be honest I am hoping that it will do me good and take my mind off all of this.

      Lovely speaking to you Gillian,  always here if you want a chat x

      I know Gillian,   the thoughts it gives you,  it's horrid.   I used to have a feeling that I was going to pull my eye balls out,   lol ...  it sounds funny now but at the time,  I had to sit on my hands to stop myself.  Anxiety gives you such peculiar feelings and thoughts,  its just the mind playing tricks on us.   Thank god it does get better :-) xxx

      Gosh I posted twice..sorry.

      Oh Tina,that did make me giggle. It's horrendous isn't it. I mean eyeballs and teeth..what's that all about?lol 

      I told my mum and thought she would have me locked away but I needed to tell somebody...She was so understanding and said "because my teeth are the thing I'm the least happiest about,the anxiety zoomed in on that". I guess she was right in some respects.

      i just kept thinking so negative though,like " ok so if I was frightened of something external I could avoid coming into contact with that trigger but how the hell can I run away from my own mouth"!?? Lol

      It even sounds stupid when I write it and say it to myself,even though the thoughts still there,it isn't bothering me now,I'm over it :D

      Hahahahahahahaaaa  .....  Maybe we have just cracked it Gillian,   maybe laughter is the cure.  I'm sitting here laughing myself.  I know it's a serious thing but you know what today is the first time I have ever laughted because of the effects of anxiety.   :-) :-) :-)    xxx

      It's a terrible thing. I've suffered from anxiety before. Usually manage to get it sorted in a few months but always have odd thoughts with it.

      They do say to see these thoughts with humour but I think that you can only start to so that when you are at the other side of it..like say it comes up in a few months,u can shrug it off and laugh about that silly thought. It's not so easy to do when you are in that anxious spin is it??? Xx

      Yes difinetly,   its the most awful thing at the time when you are having these thoughts.   I just saw the funny side of when  I used to have that thought about the eyes,  at the time it wasn't funny at all.  But maybe it would help people if they could see that when you get over it that you can see a funny side to it.  I wouldn't wish it on anyone.   x
