Anyone experience anxiety of past events? Something that happened that you just can't stop thinking about even though it's done with and happened eons ago?
A few years ago (I'm going to say it was 3-4) I was dealing with really bad anxiety and depression. I had taken my meds and conked out and missed the kiddo getting off the bus. I woke up to the school calling. I rushed over to the school to pick him up. The worst for him was he had to go back to the school and wait for me. I still rehash this over and over again. It keeps me up at night at times. (Obviously he wasn't scared from it, he's fine.) But the way the principal spoke to me was just unreal. I had hopped in the car and rushed over—the school was 20 minutes away without traffic. She called 10 minutes into my trip asking where I was. (Uhm, on my way.) She was telling me how upset he was blah blah. I get it. I do. But gosh. It wasn't like it was a continuous thing. It was a one time incident that hadn't happened before or after. But I still can't get past it.
Anyone else deal with anything like this? How do you get your mind to just let go?
