Lately, I've been having a problem with thinking about bad scenarios that could potentially happen where I wind up looking really bad. I really think this is a by product of my anxiety because in the past, many times bad things have happened that I wasn't prepared to handle at the moment. Then, of course, I'd find myself days later thinking of responses I should have come up with. By then, it's too late. I think these conjured scenarios are my way of coming up with a good response should they or something similar occur. The problem is, they often leave me sad, as if the scenario actually happened. Sometimes they leave me with violent thoughts as in thinking what I'd really like to do physcially to my imagined antagonist. Almost always, it puts me in a bad mood one way or the other. Does anyone experience this? I'm trying to get better at reminding myself these things haven't actually happened and most likely never will.
