I am driving myself crazy

Postby Ema » Thu May 26, 2011 5:17 pm

I am so happy to find this forum. I have just kept my thoughts to myself so people won't think I am crazy. I worry about lots of things, only usually the things I worry about are not what others worry about. I don't care how I look or how nice my hair is, I worry about always saying the wrong thing. So, here I am now, after a conversation at work where we were just talking, driving myself crazy worrying over what I said. It is not that I argue or anything like that, but it seems like if I say the weather is nasty, everyone else seems to say it is nice and so I feel like an ass for opening my mouth. I have tried keeping my mouth shut, but then I think that people will think I am rude or that I am not a "team player" if I don't speak up. Right now I am on a short term/part time contract that could be renewed, but now I am thinking that because I say such stupid things that they won't hire me again and I love the job. I worry that I talk too much, or not enough, or say the wrong thing. I will wake up in the night and replay the conversations over and over. Then I start thinking I should drop by work on some pretense, just to see if everyone acts normally toward me. If they don't, then of course there goes another night's sleep. Sometimes I just have a loud voice in my head saying, 'SHUT UP". Any suggestions. Thank you. :cry:

Just to be clear, when I said I didn't care about how I looked, what I meant was while others spend hours bemoaning the way they look and spend hours trying to improve themselves, I don't worry about that. I am clean and well kept. I am slim and in good shape. I just used that as an example of something that I don't worry about. It was more a comment on how I don't worry about everything, just what comes out of my mouth.

Take another look at your first post, what do you think i would think, you wrote it , an it sounded that way. You think you talk rubbish at work , had anyone said you do. Theres always one that will tell you , if not your doing ok, so chill an blend in slowly, it a prob lots of people get , take a deep breath an think what you say first. 8)
