Constant obsessive worries pop into my head and won't go away - October 22nd 2013, 06:12 AM

Things get into my head and I can't forget them and they bother me for anywhere from a few hours to days to weeks. I get something in my head and I can't forget it. I have to make 1,000 justifications and rationalizations of why it will be okay. I have to repeat it in my head again and again before I'm on to the next obsession. Part of me knows there irrational and unlikely, but I can't forget it.

Today I was worried about:

What if there isn't enough land for all the people? How much of the earth can't be inhabited?

What if we run out of natural resources?

Sea levels

This is what the thought process is like in my head:

I'm not tall enough. I am tall enough. No, I'm not. I'm too short. I'm 5'4.5. That's average for a girl. No, that's too short. I can grow taller maybe. I can still grow when I'm 17, 17, or 18. 16, 17, 18. 16, 17, 18, 16, 17, 18. 16, 17, 18. This year, next year, year after. Repeat My mom is 5'5, my dad is 5,5, my sister is 5,7. Repeat. I can wear heels. Stripes make you look taller. Repeat. Continue for months.

I am fucking up literally every class at school. My teachers repirted my anxiety to the counselor. Sigh.

omg I have the same problem. I worry about things for extremely long periods of time even though my thinking is unjustified.

I do the same thing, overthinking too much. I have severe anxiety, so I worry about the things that might seems silly to other people. I could really think about one thing and try to make sense out of it lol. Have you seen a counselor before? they might help you give me tips to what you can do when your thinking way too much.
