Like the topic says, I have more thoughts in my head then I could even hope to contend with. This in itself isn't really a new development as I have been to therapy, on and off medication, and stayed in a psych ward for a week. I'm very aware how well changing your thoughts can really change the way you perceive things and how even if you don't believe it at first after repeating it eventually you do start to believe. I believe in this so much I have a tattoo on my forearm saying, "Change your thoughts, Change your world." So after getting my negative thoughts under control for the most part I thought I was free. Or as close to it as I could be. But recently I don't seem to be able to determine what is real and not real. I don't know how I really feel about things, how I should feel about things, or whether I'm just feeling or thinking things because thats what I'm suppose to do. It happens with everything, from my relationship, to my self image, to even being able to leave my home. The only thing that seems to work to keep my mind off of things are movies I've seen a million times like old Disney movies but that only gives me a few minutes relief until I'm assaulted with a tidal wave of crippling emotions and thoughts. If I knew what the right answer was then I would just repeat it to myself until I believed it. But theres always a voice in the back of my head saying what if, or no your wrong. I just don't know what to do anymore.View Thread
