In general, some days are better than others, but that’s true for everyone, right? Not just bipolar people.
Some days I really struggle with anxiety. But it’s typically, anxiety over nothing specific.
For me, anxiety can start out as a nagging feeling, just a feeling that something’s not quite right. Then, it likes to rear it’s freakin’ ugly head and try to take over in my thoughts and emotions. Once the anxious feeling is nice and strong in my brain, I start to think about things in my day to day life to worry about and nit-pick.
Then, sometimes the anxiety turns into catastrophic thinking. Catastrophic thinking is where I think everything is already, or is going to turn into a catastrophe. I will imagine the most outlandish, ridiculous scenarios in my head and worry that they’ll happen. I mean, I know bad things happen to everyone, but it’s not like I need to make up things to worry about.
Today is one of those days. I’m worried about everything. And nothing.
Do you ever do that?
