Hi guys.

I literally just joined this forum because I am going through very strange feelings right now.

So, i had to appear for an exam today. And of course I was anxious before it.. As expected. It was an oral exam on zoom calls. And i went quote decently I think. I was able to talk confidently and shared good rapport with the examiners. Once it was over, I came out smiling and relieved it was over.

But i noticed, as time went by, instead of relaxing, my anxiety started to build up again. My heart was racing, I was restless, not able to relax at all.

I started replaying the entire scenario in my head. And when it replays, it exaggerates my mistakes and the examiners reactions. Which makes my anxiety even worse. As this loop keeps playing, it gets worse and worse.

Has anyone else felt like this? What can you do to distract your mind and stop rethinking each and every scenario.

Thanks for hearing me out.

Oh god I’ve gone thru that my whole life. I would just say to myself that I did the best under high anxiety. Don’t be so hard on yourself. Maybe you need something for when you take exams. 👍🏼
