okay, this may sound a little weird. but with my anxiety/OCD (repetitive thoughts) .. i believe that i'm causing this myself. i always am worrying about something .. whether it be that i'm going to get cancer and die, or i have terrible repetitive thoughts of violence which make me think that i'm going to go crazy and kill someone. this time last year, i was very depressed and my anxiety was very high. out of nowhere the other day, i got a feeling of doom like i had last year. like something was going to go wrong, i was going to hurt someone etc. since then, i have been obsessing over the fact that i might become depressed again, which is giving me anxiety. i don't know how to stop this, because i don't want to become depressed again, but i know that if i keep thinking like this i will. i am not and have never been on meds. any input is appreciated.
I can also relate to that feeling of doom. And sometimes I wonder if I'm the only one. Of course, after spending some time on this anxiety message board, i find that pretty much EVERYone on this site has had that feeling at some point, so I know I'm not alone.
But as for the other stuff, I never like to advocate going on meds, because I really hate all of the meds out there for anti-anxiety and anti-depressant, but if you are really having such a severe problem, you may have to consider it. But I'm not a doctor, so i can't tell you for sure. You would definitely benefit though, from some kind of counseling, I think. At least talking about it with someone would help you realize that your feelings are a common anxiety thing and at least then you'll know that you're not weird or anything, just anxious.
i currently go to a counselor, and have been going to him for almost a year. i'm just not on any meds. i am due for my period in a few days, do you think that is a pretty valid reason as to why i started feeling like this out of nowhere? i was pretty stable before this. now i just feel so distant .. i feel like my boyfriend is already fed up withmy anxiety, etc. i have bad thoughts about hurting my parents although i would never do such a thing, so sometimes its hard for me to be around them because i will have bad thoughts. i hate this. i hate the feelings of doom. what do your 'feelings of doom' feel like?
