How to stop catastrophising

Because my logical brain tells, me, it COULD happen (even if chances are low)

So therefore how can I just stop worrying. About that specific thing.

Help me

Could you be more specific? What is is it that you are catastrophising about?

I have one very specific scenario but unfortunately I can’t say it out loud.

Ok I understand. It’s hard to give any advice not knowing what the problem is. But try to stay calm at all times and try to have some distance to what is causing your catastrophic thinking. Don’t give it any power.

What’s catastrophising?

If it was general anxiety I would say perhaps the solution would be getting busy working on various things.

If it’s a specific thing you may just need to face your fear or perhaps strengthen yourself in whatever area you are afraid of…

Thats my advice.

Is it anxiety? It seems so. Why not talk about it to your Dr? There are meds for anxiety.

I have no psych doctor.

I don’t want more meds they are just sweets for me (for me!!)

I am not going to risk it, I know what meds have…tonnes of side effects as I am usually sensitive to meds.
I need to find an alternate route

They once gave me anti anxiety meds whilst I was off my head scared psychotic

I become horny as ■■■■

like literally, I could not function

and i think it was a positive symptom thing

You can always try to adopt the attitude of idgaf

Weird they usually do the opposite and thats why one of my friends stop them sometimes bcz of sexual dysfunction. Anyways if you don’t like meds try meditation.

Thats probably the psychosis and not the antianxiety meds.
