I have this problem that I’ve had for a couple of years now it came upon suddenly when I was in year 7 at school. It’s like I find some fasination with remembering every thought I have.
Say for example I have a list of things I have to do and I dont have a pen or paper with me at the precise moment I feel like I need to stop everything and write it in my phone. I often feel like if I forget this certain thought that its the end of the world. It’s hard to live with this on a day to day basis. And I’ve actually never told anyone about this. I’ve found that when my mind is racing and when I’m under stress this thought problem affects me more. But when I am relaxed and calm spending time with my baby boy it eases off.

  • It could be some sort of obsession and focusing on your baby is a great way to distract yourself. I would also find other ways to distract your mind perhaps like reading , housework etc. If it gets worse consult a GP as it maybe high anxiety which happens to all of us . Hope it gets better soon .


  • Simple solution, spend more time with your baby boy. And if thought thingy gets out of control, I would suggest a Dr visit


  • Hope it eases soon, you poor thing :(


  • it is becoming an obsession it might be some sort of anxiety or ocd.


  • I hope that you managed to talk to a professional about your concerns


  • I totally agree with seeking help to work out strategies to make things easier for you


  • nice story to have a read


  • If it’s getting in your way, see a pyschologist – they can help you with some coping strategies.

    • This is good advice; do seek help if it is impacting on your life.


  • I get like that somedays but thats what happens everyday is a new day, some are easier then others children are definitely calming. Goodluck and try to stay calm :)
