Hi, so I introduced myself the other day but a bit more about 'me'.....
I'm full of self doubt, loathing and confusion. I try to manage every day but my head is like a hard drive that is constantly working. I have a form of control where I 'reset' things, mobile phones, tv's, computers. I think that if I wipe the slate clean I can 'start again' and try and gain some order, however in reality I just continue the cycle.
I have a wife, children, a full time job and outwardly I look like everyone else, inside though is a different story.
What do I do ? Carry on, try to manage, seek professional help (again), or something else ?
Do any other members of the forum have advice ?
Thank you for reading, Lee

Hi @leewhitney76 i hope you're doing a little better today.

I'm working on how to let go of the need/desire to control everything (or sometimes, my desire to know everything so that I can control situations or people). Cognitive therapy is helpful. Exposing myself to situations with a lot of uncertainty is helping.

"Uncomfortable but not intolerable" and "Difficult but not impossible" are "my mantras" when facing uncertain situations that I won't have control over. Like this vacation I'm on now.
