Anxiety
Eats at my mind
Pulls each thought apart
Dissecting its remains

Little bugs crawling in my brain
Digging holes in my skull
Analyzing, obsessing

And my brain
Is a jungle
Of wild beasts
Tearing it apart
Eating at its bone
Slowly, it wastes away

My mind spins
My head hurts
And I call it quits

I can't
I just can't
I wish
For a clear mind
Balanced thoughts
A new brain

That's all I wish for
All I ask for
All I hope for
All I pray for

Am I deserving
Will the anxiety ever die
For how long
Will I stumble in the darkness

wow, you described the anxiety so well,
i also feel it is eating away at my brain.
my doc told me a saying : its the ocd, not me.
i say it to myself whenever i have an anxious thought.
but its still such a struggle for me.
maybe we could all post our anxious thoughts and see how they are illogical. maybe not such a good idea on the other hand, could be triggering.
i really feel for you, think good.
its scary to feel that ill have these thoughts forever c"V.
you write really well.

the anxiety is kicking in today full force...how to deal?
music helps, breathing helps, but i cant do either the whole day.
why do we have to live with this? its so unfair.
i am anxious about:
pesach- my mom wants to start cleaning already
vacation- being away from home and work environment is very triggering for me
dating- the fear of liking someone and then being rejected

and in general, im just terrified of everyones rejection of me. just writing this makes me cry.
i perceive anything as a rejection- even someone not answering my text or call.
can anyone help me deal with this fear? any ideas?

One thing I find time and again is that when people feel anxious, they perceive themselves as transparent, like everyone can read their face or see through them, but it's usually not true. One thing I try to remind people is that the fear is always worse than the reality.
