I borrowed a book from my psych called "Dropping the Baby and other scary thoughts" the other day. It was a very interesting read, to start, but then it just gave me new ideas to ruminate on. Now it's so bad that I seriously think that I need to phone her tomorrow rather than wait until our Wednesday appointment. It would seem that reading about my mental illness is not a good idea when my mental illness is still out of control. What's more, not being able to read about it is depressing. Oh, the irony. So much for it being a helpful book.

I'm with Sunni. I stopped reading newspapers and watching the news when I hit trimester three because I turn things into a bigger worry than they should be ALL the time. Just tell all us what you're worried about and well say "don't be silly!" :)

Hope you were able to find some relief by talking with her.

(((hugs))) I don't think I have a mental illness but I'm a worrier and sometimes get lost in bad thoughts. I stopped reading the paper or watching the news after my 1st was born.

Definitely call sooner rather than latter.

Yeah, sometimes I am drawn to reading stuff that just feeds my obsessive mind and isn't good for me. Great that you are noticing this and asking for help!
