I have been diagnosed with depression and anxiety. I am currently taking medication to help treat these conditions. I am finding relief from the depression, but not with thr anxiety (my doctor has prescribed me a new medication that I will start after my vacation).
I've also been going to therapy for about 3 years. We have worked on CBT and also EMDR.
I'm really trying to get better.
But I'm still haunted by persistent, intrusive thoughts. They always concern fears/worries about my boyfriend and his sexual past and ex-girlfriends. I am aware that deeper issues that I need to work on that are causing me to fixate on his past, but I don't know what to do to rid myself of these thoughts in the meantime. I tend to wonder about "what if" scenerios ex: what if he and his female friend (who he had a brief fling with years ago) had shared a resort room for a friend's destination wedding (he almost went to the wedding and this is who else was going solo). Would they have hooked up?
