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.




Can I walk somewhere?

When I do that, it just gets worse. Wish I was you.

Mhm, but you need at least a 20 minute walk, preferably somewhere quiet.

Could be panic/anxiety attack or something. I'd see a medical doctor. And try to get sleep.

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.


For me, it usually involves historical figures over religious (which might be because I'm more drawn to history than religion, I've never been sure). I try to stop the thoughts by movement, which tends to result in me jerking my hand in mid-air erratically.

I pretend to dash the thoughts to the side. Blow them up. Smash them against a wall in an explosion. Rip them in half. That helps to stave them off for a moment.

I agree with going for a walk. I also think it would be good for you to go on a walk with the people you feel anxiety about if possible. If not, call them! Sometimes that type of anxiety hits me, and for me it does wonders to hear their voice!

Or you could do the unhealthy thing that I sometimes do and play video games as escapism. (Not recommended)

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.

I have these thoughts often, usually in my relaxed waking hours. Very morbid, very dark, makes for good story material sometimes.

I have a few suggestions that help me cope with this stuff:
1) Write it down. It can help.
2) Walk for 5+ miles, run for 2.5+ miles. Always helps (though I need music).
3) Listen to happy music. Sadly, my happy music goes from stuff like Nightcore (happy hardcore) to stuff like Cascada, trance, techno, house, classic rock, classic music. Stuff like that.
4) Sleep. Hibernating is my go to method. Once you are calm enough from above ones, just sleep for 10-20 hours. You will stop having those thoughts for a while. Possibly linked to being tired?

Maybe some of these will help, some wont. Either way, good luck!

Oh, I want to add. Talk to a good friend when you have these thoughts. While someone you pay is nice... if you have a good friend who is willing to give you an ear, talk to him. A good friends ear >>> Therapist and the likes.
