This is me....I can't tell you anything to make you feel better, but I for one am glad that I am not the only one out there that does this. (Not that i am happy that you all experience this too, but it's even more scarey when you think that you are the only one that this happens to!) I have had anxiety for years, but the excessive bad thoughts (thinking of the worse case senerio/what ifs, etc) have just been the last 5 years or so...interestingly enough it seemed to fade during my pregnancy, and reestablish after my dd was born...not sure what that means?
Some things that seem to help me are: talking with dh about my "nutty thoughts" (and him reassuring me that everything is fine, silly , I know, but it helps)and exercising and socializing with people that I care about seemed to help a lot. Simple things, but they work to curb the bad thoughts and help my brain to put things in perspective.
