It drives me insane at time the amount of going round and around, severe mental torment for over 27 years. Compulsive worry. I am fucking sick of it.
I try and be more gentle to myself, the biggest problem i have is in my mind.
I keep moving forward and doing the best i can.

I'm making it okay. Can't sleep but it was busy day.
Do you take meds for that compulsive worry.
It's so horrible.

I am not on any medication. I was on meds in my early 20's for a psychosis anti psychotic drug and seroxat, they took me of 1 half then nothing, i had convulsions for 1 had fits for 18 months and i am very wary of taking pills, i did have beta blockers for a few days when i was very ill and wanted to go into a mental health facility 17 years ago. I had some therapy, that helped at times.
I find great comfort in riding my scooter, it puts me in the moment.

I get triggered by certain people that are possibly talking about me or trying to do me harm, its hard to know what is real about this and even if it is, i can not live in fear of things that might happen. Hope things are ok for you Jean Pierre.

This is how i deal possible gossip or thinking someone is trying to harm me, they might be and i will deal with ABC when if it happens. Like someone filming me and putting in on facebook with a negative narrative. Powerless over that. Not powereless over libel.

I wonder if now (years later) if there is a better med for you.
Less side effects.
I'd be scared to death as well after all that.
What you report are quite common delusions that can be treated.
Stress is horrible right now.
A lot of people need extra help. I need extra care of myself.
Yes, be good to yourself. Drink a lot of water. The sun. ✌️
