I 100% understand!! I have always been a worrier, over the stupidest things too. FH is a police officer and I remember last year one night when he was working 3-11 it was about midnight and he still hadn’t come home. I started texting him, calling him, nothing. I thought he had been shot/was in the hospital/dead. Finally about 15 minutes later he called me and I just flipped out on him. He said he had been talking to his Lt. about studying for his Cpls. test and that Lt. was being super nice and giving him all kinds of advice. I felt awful. If I call him and he doesn’t answer, I immediately think the worst. I know it’s stupid, but I can’t seem to help it..

Ugh same here. 🙁 hopefully we get some good advice here… Sorry I don’t have any tips :/. Today for example I have become totally obsessed about a black speck on my tooth that I am 99% is a piece of pepper that just refuses to budge. But in the course of 5 minutes my mind jumps to thinking I’ll need the tooth pulled. I hate hate hate this about myself and don’t know how to stop it. Every time that an issue gets resolved, I swear to myself that I won’t let myself freak out next time… But I still do.

I have no advice, but I’m super high strung too… Darling Husband was supposed to get off work at 4:30 a couple weeks ago, and I didn’t hear from him for like, two hours. and I was CONVINCED he was dead in a ditch… turns out he just had to work OT…

@misskittenn:  You sound like me!!!

I’ve been convinced that: 1) Fiance was in a serious accident 2) I’m pregnant 3) I have cancer

.. I think you see a trend. None of these things have actually happened. lol! I haven’t found anything that makes me stop worrying, but at least I can relate! I try to watch videos about 3rd world problems and just talk to my family. It makes me see how good I have it, and my family talks some sense into me.

FH lives ten minutes from me, and if I don’t hear from him within 30 after he drops me off at night, then I start getting crazy worried. 

I’ve also practically convinced myself that I was pregnant. I definitely wasn’t. 

I have no advice, but you’re definitely not alone!
