This is along a similar vein, I suppose, to the depression thread, but it's a slightly divergent issue.
I have always been a classic "worrier", and I think that it is largely connected to the way my mind works as that of an INFJ. I'm positive other types can be worriers to, but I seem to have a specific way of doing it. In deference to my primary Ni function, I suppose, I am always imagining possibilities and envisioning the way things *might* pan out. Unfortunately, though, this often lends itself to my being worried about something, and immediately envisioning the worst possible case scenario, and convincing myself that that is what will happen. However unlikely it may actually be.
I exhaust myself from worrying about things sometimes. I get so anxious, I actually make myself physically sick from the strain. Logically, I know that I am being unrealistic and irrational, but I cannot seem to force myself to stop overanalysing and worrying.
Do any of you have suggestions as to how you deal with anxiety and the ensuing stress?? I would appreciate anything you have to say.
