yes I am the queen of rumination - not a title I enjoy.
Its so hard not to - these are our kids we are talking about so its very hard to approach it with the same calmer approach we would when helping friends cope.
Actually that's another technique I have started trying to use. If my friend was coming to me with my situation and fears and worries what would I say to them, how would I encourage them to process it

Hey @lizard0812, sometimes we need to be prepared for worse case scenarios, if that's what we're experiencing with our teens. I think it's part of my personality, but also come about from living some worse case scenarios.
I love the forum as a place to share those fears and concerns and with feedback we are then able to work out if our worries or fears about our kids are justified or purely our minds freaking out. I hope that makes sense!!

It looks like you’re visiting us from a country other than Australia.
We are an Australian service and think you’d benefit more from looking up a similar service in your country.
You are welcome to look around the forums, but please don’t make an account or post, as we can’t offer you the help you may need.
Before you go ahead and post, you should know that we remove non-Australian accounts – not because we don’t want to help or connect with you, but because we may not be able to provide you with the service that you require.
