Anxiety symptoms - Fear of going crazy

Fear of going crazy: You suddenly become afraid that you might lose your mind or that you are not able to think. You may also feel that you are not able to remember things as easily as you once did. Sometimes you become afraid of having a nervous breakdown. You also may have periods of 'crazy' thoughts that frighten you, or that thoughts ‘just pop up’ that are bothersome by their content.

These thoughts and fears may come and go, may be persistent, or may appear frequently. The underlying component is fear of the possibility of going crazy, or having a serious mental illness, or of being committed to a mental institution.

Thought content can be bizarre, disturbing, unreal, irrational, totally off-base, etc.
