It is a good feeling knowing there is more than one person out there feeling like you! It would be great if we continued helping each other out. I too have no help from my parents. They just don't know me.
I have something that I find helps me with dealing with anxiety and intrusive thoughts. Its supposed to be in table form but I think you can understand it like this.
Draw a table/make a list. In
the first column, write the heading Situation.
In the next, write Emotions. In the
third, Thoughts, and in the fourth, Alternative Thoughts. Under Situation, write the situation or thing that is
making you anxious. In Emotions, write
down how this situation makes you feel and how your body reacts to that
physically (e.g sweating, shaking, hyperventilating, crying etc). Under Thoughts, write down the intrusive/anxious
thoughts. Finally, under Alternative Thoughts,
write down any thoughts that don't make you anxious that you could think
This may not work for you, but its worth giving it a try!
