I'm new here. I've struggled with GAD in some form for as long as I can remember. I've never posted on a forum but right now the thoughts are so out of control that I need to get it out somewhere and maybe knowing someone else relates will help me get through the long day ahead.
I guess my main issue is the excessive ruminating that I torture myself with after a night of socializing with anyone, even my VERY good friends....I'm talking friends since birth. It's amazing to me how thoughts like "omg did I talk too much? Was I boring her? Did she at any point look like she wanted to leave? Was I drunken rambling? Will she ever want to come over again? Did I share too much? Does she still like me?" literally torture me the next day.
Ive been in therapy so I KNOW that these are mostly irrational thoughts. However, knowing that doesn't keep the thought from creeping in. It's always worse after a night of drinking but I'm finding it difficult to stop the alcohol all together. I know we shouldn't give these thoughts credit but its so hard. Anyone else have this social issue?
Thanks for reading.
