I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.
Just to add a bit more to that, sometimes you start over thinking things when talking to me, thats when I refuse to discuss the issue any more because I can see that it is eroding any self-confidence that you have. I'm not going to help you get into a negative cycle, but I don't know how to break you out of it either.
Then you get angry with me for 'not helping'
Overthinking is something I used to do so much that I thought it was normal. It came as quite a surprise to me that I was able to stop. CBT and counselling has helped enormously for me, but I'm sure there are other ways of working through it.
Another forumite sent me this link when I first had my breakdown and thats what made me start to question my thinking errors. Sorry if I've linked this before, I might have but it doesn't hurt to do it again and its free.
Living Life to the Full
As I said before, I went on from that to Beating the Blues and that has taken me one step further. Can really recommend it if any lurkers are out there struggling.
I remember my Counsellor telling me that my overthinking was crazy making and she wouldn't discuss it either. Its a hard habit to break.
I was more thinking it would help with stuff like SOLB talked about, although I would acknowledge it's not the only king of overthinking I have an issue with
SOLB you've lost your shorts!
Does anyone have any helpful hints on uploading an image - you know the ones that appear each time on the left. Nearly everything I can find exceeds the memory limit - and when I did find one I ended up with the microscopic reindeer that I've still got now.
