I live with a severe anxiety disorder (I know, tell me something you don’t already know).
It’s like an endless thought loop that leaves me feeling restless and exhausted most days.
I overthink EVERYTHING and jump to way too many conclusions.
My brain rarely shuts off and for several days now my brain hasn’t been able to shut off AT ALL.
I can’t get off this hamster wheel.
I am beyond overwhelmed right now by so much of my life and my anxiety has become completely unmanageable and highly distressing since late Saturday night. (See blog: https://youareenough712.wordpress.com/2021/11/14/being-real/)
I’ve been in a constant state of fear, worry, fight or flight response and panic round the clock, just waiting in doom, obsessing and overanalyzing everything. You can probably feel how elevated my heart rate is right now from across the room.
I’m an empath (honestly it feels more like a curse).
I feel things VERY deeply and have a strong intuition. It’s convinced my anxiety that I must have psychic abilities because I incessantly foresee something really, really bad is about to happen. If only I had a crystal ball.
But the problem with my theory is that our intuition usually comes from a more mindful and calm state. Being intuitive or having psychic abilities is allowing the messages in our brain or energy from our body to come through in a healthy, positive, matter-of-fact and plausible way which is, well, the very opposite definition of anxiety.
So I’m pretty sure I’m probably not actually psychic because that would mean that the visions I have would be way more objective, my intuition would be way more accurate and my anxiety would be way less intrusive.
Do you believe in psychics?
