can you drive yourself crazy?

Ok for the past few months ive been catching myself thinking im going crazy. God this sounds so freakish, but its like my inner voice is telling me that im going to lose it. a overwhelming feeling accompanies these thoughts. is this a precursor to somthing serious or am i just self-sabotaging myself? maybe im possessed? in any case, help would be appreciated....thanks for you advice in advance..

Hi evildeeman

Welcome to the forum. This sounds more like the thoughts people have due to anxiety and the more you concentrate on them the more anxious you become. If you were literally 'going crazy' you wouldn't be aware of it or worrying about it.

Some form of relaxation can help. I use a relaxation CD twice a day which helps with anxiety.

You might like to take the free Panic Attacks Course which will show you ways to manage the anxiety.

Hey Evildeeman ( I have some questions about your name but...)

I think we can agonize and worry about something so much that is causes us to have a brain over-load. Can't think straight, nothing make sense, can't express yourself, things like that. Stress can really have an affect our mental abilities. I don't think it's a perminent thing.

On the drive yourself crazy....

I don't think so... not unless you have really good direction and can convince yourself to get into the car.... But DON'T go! I'm just kidding....
