Of course.  My Dh, the aviation buff, refers to it as my”spooling up”.  I can take something he says and be off and spooling it up to mega proportions.

 

Mind you, Dh is very respectful and quite wary of stepping on land mines, so he’s seldom the perp.  I have a severe case of GAD and panic disorder.  Severe enough that it causes my severe major clinical depression, so anxiety is definitely at the root of my inappropriate reactions.

 

I think if you can find ways of managing your stress, the problem will work itself out.  What makes you feel calmer?  Yoga, meditation, exercise, music, a long bath, even counseling, whatever works for you.  Maybe talking it out with a good friend or venting right here can help.

We do torment ourselves, don’t we?

 

My therapist calls it “awfulizing” when I take a less than ideal situation and blow it up into a giant tragedy.

 

I’m working on it.

@weddingguest101:  I have anxiety too, and I do the saaaame thing. I’m getting better about not tormenting FH with it but he does get pretty frustrated when I do it.
