    Oh and the cure?

    Do what everyone else does and ask STW to make your mind up for you.

    Not a medical term as such, but I’ve heard the term ‘Options Paralysis’ used on occasion.

    This makes sense. All I’m doing is trying to decide which of three riding options I should take tomorrow. I have reasons for & against for each and therefore….

    Aboulomania is a mental disorder is which the patient suffers from mental derangement by weakened willpower or pathological indecisiveness. Aboulo is a Greek term meaning irresolution or indecision.

    So – any of them will be fine but might not be 100% perfect.

    I got totally knocked out with work related stress last year, and that was one of the symptoms- one highlight was literally sitting in front of the TV for hours because I couldn’t decide whether to eat lunch first, or go to the shops. By the time I managed to do either, I could have done both. Other times I got so freaked out trying to decide what to do that I just thought, not worth it, I’ll do nothing. But it was only ever discussed as a symptom so I don’t know what the actual name is. “Pure stressed as ****, ken, bein a useless miserable ****” is I think what it said on the sick line.

    Northwind that’s interesting. Mainly becuase option 4 which I’m close to taking is to lounge on the sofa and watch the F1. However, I’ve found a reason not to do that as well…

    Not so much a medical term, more para-normal levels of indecision

    What was that book where the chap made all his decisions at the throw of a dice?

    And why am I associating it with Phil Collins?

    How long did you take to decide whether or not to to ask the question?

    That’s easy. It’s because you are very odd.

    I had this earlier…. it was terrible….I ended up having salt and vinegar and cheese and onion crisps. If in doubt do both 🙂

    …. that on a regular basis I really am in a spin wondering what to do? Because if there is, I think I’ve got it. I can’t make my mind up/be satisfied of a decision over the simplest things to the point I’m fed up with myself.

    Sounds like GAD, sorry to hear you went through that Northwind. Hope things are better now.

    In all seriousness, it can be a symptom of OCD

    I dealt with the situation by going and doing a different job where my boss isn’t a cock-juggling thunder****. Cheers! Not 100% over it if I’m honest but it’s dealt with anyway.

    I’ve had problems in the past similar to GAD, I know what it’s like to be constantly worrying about things.

    Good to hear you’re better. The best thing I ever did for myself was to close my eyes, think of a time and place when I’m really relaxed (when I’m laying prone with a rifle at a range)…I’d go through the same process of taking a shot in my mind and would control my breathing as I would with my shooting and at the same time I would touch my trousers with my hands….focusing on the texture.

    I did this enough until I could get my heart rate down simply by touching the sides of my trousers, it reduces my nerves massively and helps me to keep a cool head. I still do it sometimes at the top of downhill runs or during exams.

    It’s a psychological grounding technique, google is your friend – it set off my interest in biology and medicine.
