Let me know if a thread like this one exist or not.
Thanks a bunches.

Explain your opinion in great detail. Excuse my grammar, please.



*sigh* Okay. I have a serious problem that I am speaking to some professional about. I tend to get these thoughts that come without any warning. I don't think it because it's weird and wrong. These thoughts just come out of nowhere and their very bad. How does one deal with intrusive thoughts? These thoughts are so bad and morbid that they sometimes leave me in tears. For the pass few days the thoughts have been about me losing my mother and any other family member. They're so vivid and real that it scares me. I don't even think like this but these thoughts just come out of nowhere. So have any of you had these thoughts or am I crazy? What can I do to stop these thoughts from happening?


I know that I am asking a lot out of you CR users but I just need some advice. Doesn't have to be perfect either. I just want to go to sleep without getting these horrid thoughts in my head. Got any ideas on what to do?

I guess it depends on what the thought is but I normally use the negative thoughts as fuel for something productive.

best way to deal with an enemy is to make it your friend, I always say.

Make something good out of something bad?

Might be OCD. Sometimes we have intrusive thoughts when we.... ummm.... enjoy the solitary vice. A person can suffer with intrusive thoughts of people they know in disturbing manners, even religious figures aren't spared from being violated mentally.

I found that I can't be rid of them entirely.

that's what I'd do, devote the energy used for the thoughts into something productive. I don't believe in good and bad stuff just stuff a person wants and don't want so the way I see it, turn something you don't want into something you do want.

I used to have screwed up thoughts too so I decided to pick up a writing habit. My thoughts were the paint, my hands the brushes.

but I suck at giving advice, so I'm not gonna tell you what to do, just telling you what I'd do.

It sounds like you have paranoia and a little bit of depression.

Distract yourself with good thoughts only.

I use to have these thoughts. I eventually got over it with time. If not, see a therapist. Time was my answer. The first time I heard of universal heat death.....boy, was I depressed. Like can get out of bed depressed. I didn't want to die. I didn't want to turn into nothingness and not be with my family for eternity, but I couldn't accept the idea of Heaven or Hell....perhaps an afterlife, but there's no proof.

So I dulled the pain with video games and here I am.

Better than no advice.

Maybe these thoughts are coming to the surface so to speak because they need to be dealt with and you can no longer avoid the idea of these things happening in the future. The best you can do is to deal with them accept that its just the reality that people you hold dear will pass. I've had these before and they pass but if you don't deal with them they eventually come back.

I also took up learning as a way to comfort myself against the million ways the universe can kill you. For most people, including myself, it's philosophizing stuff. I'd Begin with Man's Search for Meaning by Frankl.

Go for a walk.

It's the best way to calm down from what's termed 'chaotic thinking'. I use to have such issues back when I was a bit sick in the head. It also helped someone I know get through a moment where he was attempting suicide.

Just walk. No music. Let your mind wander. Only return when you feel better. It'll relax it at the very least enough to rationally think. Whenever you start getting those thoughts just step out the door. It helps a lot.

I also tend to worry a lot too. I worry about my mom constantly. Which is strange because she is a grown woman and has the right to live her life. I just feel like one day is the last day I'll ever see her again. I don't want to lose my mother or any family member. But when these thoughts happen, they scare the shit out of me. I would never think in such a manner but it just happens. I try to think of good things but it's so hard.
