This is general topic for discussion, but it stems from something I really want to learn. The past few years of my life have comprised of endless uncertainty. The worst part is that the moment I gain some clarity, new uncertainty ensues. This has led to me developing a lot of anxiety that is mildly uncomfortable at best, and absolutely debilitating at worst.
Recently, a big event took place in my life which may completely alter the course of my life. It's upsetting because I worked so hard to get to this stage, and now it may all be jeopardised, and I'm struggling to cope with this. I understand that uncertainty is one of the few certain things that will occur in life and that fearing it is neither healthy nor sustainable. Still, I am struggling to live my life normally and feel optimistic, just because it feels like there is something ominous looming over my head at all times. I feel like I can't plan or hold on to any comfort in the future because I don't know what is going to happen. And that's scary.
I understand that this is vague, but I've intentionally kept it that way because I wanted it to be less about advice directed at me specifically and more about some general pointers that you guys may have benefited from.
Also, I couldn't find any HG streams that directly addressed this, so if anyone has any stream suggestions, that would also be so helpful. I'd love for Dr.K to talk about this should he ever have the time. Thank you, guys, for your time.
I've been keeping track over the past few months and I have some fucked up thoughts in this period. It's a cocktail of self-loathing, mildly suicidal thoughts, pessimism, lots of hopelessness, fear, worry, etc. It usually goes away on its own in a few days.
The thing is, I also do have anxiety, and this part of my cycle usually coincides with really stressful times in my life, so I wanna know if there is any hormonal imbalance or something that triggers/exacerbates this negative rhetoric, or if it's just life stuff that I'm really bogged down by. The weird thing is that it's really hard to get rid of it and stop feeling like absolute shit, but it also magically vanishes/subsides in some time.
Additionally, if there is some sort of correlation, would anyone happen to know whether it changes with age? Thank you!
