Can’t stop worrying at the minute. Constantly going over and over trivial stuff in my head that i know doesn’t matter. Out of nowhere i’ll remember something someone’s said, or a situation that hasn’t even happened yet, and make myself totally manic with worry. It’s almost all work-related - silly issues with a colleague that never get sorted out, to the point that i go in in the morning already mentally worn out.
Recently i’ve started getting a ridiculous amount of health problems - colds or flu every other week, a regular bad stomach, headaches, dizziness, teethache, then i’ll feel fine and i’ll hurt my back, or get earache. Every day something different. On looking into it i see this is a regular symptom of stress, but i can’t see how that works.
My attention span’s completely broken. I can’t, say, sit and read a chapter of a book or even listen to an album. The closest i get to relaxing is doing three or four things at once, but my mind always comes back to the issues that are worrying me, then i dream about them and wake up worrying. I’m trying to sort them out as methodically as possible, but it’s like an itch i can’t scratch. I can feel myself acting erratically but don’t feel able to stop it.
Not sure where to start, really. Exercise, probably. Feel like i’m having a nervous breakdown. Mainly want to know if a) people have experienced similar symptoms, and b) how you started feeling…better and what that involved.
