Hello, Ever since I enrolled in college I have had all kinds of weird thoughts. I have told myself things like I don't love my parents, etc. It's not so much that I believe them, they are just there and I ask myself why. I have had numerous thoughts. My latest thought is being scared of flying. I have been on tons and tons of airplane flights and have never felt scared. But lately I have been over analyzing it and really imagining how weird it is to fly. I'm still not scared, but I am trying to think like a scared person, and I am starting to sort of feel that way. I don't want this to happen. Is this all anxiety? I will feel much better if I know that this is what it is and that these thoughts are not true even though they feel true. I am in college now but I am still having the thoughts, but I still feel like they are a result of anxiety. I really want to know if this is what it is and that these thoughts that seem so real actually aren't. Thanks a ton.View Thread
Thanks for the reply. Yes, this is my first semester of college. However, my class load isn't too tough. My diet is pretty good and I get a decent amount of rest. I haven't had a medical exam done to see if I am deficient in anything, maybe I should do that. From what I have read online, it seems like my stupid thoughts are a result of anxiety but I am not sure. Thanks again.View Thread
I would like to add: I have always been an aviation enthusiast and loved flying. Suddenly I have started to over analyze it and it just seems creepy to me... I can't imagine it's real. I don't know why I am thinking this way. It has been this way for other thoughts also. Thanks for all of the help.View Thread
