I have this terrible feeling that something bad is about to happen. I have no particular reason for it, but I can't shake this feeling. In the past things have happened that I had no control over and they just completely gutted me and now I'm worried this is gonna happen again. The feeling is so strong I can't focus on anything and I am jumping out of my skin. I am getting panicked attacks over this. Anyone else ever experienced this?

Hi. Sorry ur having a bad time.
I suffer with anxiety, on a bad day that’s how I feel. It’s like ur waiting for this awful thing to happen but you don’t know what it is....usually when I’m feeling like that it results in me having a panic attack, then once it’s peaked I start to calm down about everything.
Is that the same got you?

Think: "We'll cross that bridge when we come to it. Let's enjoy life until then."

I just can't shake this feeling though. I just didn't know if other people ever felt like this

Is it like a bad feeling in the pit of your stomache. If it is I guess a lot of people get this. It’s usually when your a bit stressed and you get the feeling of impending doom. I can guarantee you that nothing bad is going to happen . Try and do something to take your mind off it. Watch a film or listen to some music and it will go away. Also try some breathing techniques and I’m sure you’ll soon feel better
