Anyone else have the feeling that something terrible is going to happen to you? Not just a general feeling, sometime very specific... Like I feel like I'm going to be in a car accident or get assaulted. I have this feeling that I will be raped and end up pregnant from it, and I'll have to try to be a young single mom unless my boyfriend decides to marry me sooner than we promised. I've always had a fear of sexual assault or rape and the results of possible pregnancy and PTSD. I know it must likely won't happen, but what if it does?
Anxiety (Including GAD)
Yeah, and usually stuff follows for me. I've noticed it's never consistent though, when it comes down to just how bad. It's usually just something inconvenient, like a power outage or sliding a little on ice in my car. When those feelings hit, I usually notice my anxiety spike so I try to tell myself that the worst thing that can happen is a new random bruise.
My therapist told me to pay attention to myself and the situation and react accordingly. If you constantly think about the worst that could happen, you end up carrying around the stress and you're more likely to have a harder time getting over the smaller obstacles you run into instead, since they add to that stress
Thank you. I'm glad I'm not alone. I think I managed to distract myself enough today. Hopefully it'll go away
