Why do I do this to myself?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi have been suffering from GAD for quite a few months.  Have noticed that I am actually tormenting myself by saying "I feel dizzy" or "I feel sick" and then of course that's how I feel!  Does anyone else do this?  Have no idea why I am doing this but it's not helping obviously and wish I could stop it.
