I wanted to tell you about my experience with scary thoughts: The first year or two of having panic& anxiety
attacks I remember having the scary anxious thoughts, it was really bad at night( my husband was working 3rd shift at the
time), I would be home alone with my daughter who was little at the time. When it was time for bed I would lay
their and the thoughts would start to race! What if I run out of the house and beat on the neighbors door! or run out
into traffic! what if I hurt my daughter while sleep walking! this went on until I would whined up having a massive
panic attack! This went on every time my husband worked 3rd( I didn't do it when he was home)!! So one night
the same routine started and I remember being tired, well as the thoughts started as I lay their I stretched my arms
out and said out loud OK if it's going to happen let it happen now! Well after about 5 minutes went by I said out
loud well I guess theirs my answer nothing happened!!!!! I realized it was just Fear!!! Fear and worry that I would'nt
have control. After that I did exactly what CadenMcCullem wrote I would just let the thoughts float in and right back
out telling myself that their just thoughts. And they did go away!! I think because I took the power out of the fear.
I hope this helps to here.
