As Aurora said, they are intrusive thoughts...

While I did not get anything (at least that related to me, as I really had no issues except ones the principal decided I had, and needed counseling for) out of the brief "therapy" I had to have a few years back, I did learn that intrusive thoughts could be caused by too much alone time. So if that's you, try spending more time with people/out in the real world, and less by yourself. It does not have to be a major event, but anything such as going to the store and interacting with people (pleasantly) can help.

Be right back.


First off find out why you are having those thoughts. Pin down something specific that is causing you to feel that way. Then, talk to somebody about it. This is the best advice an unexperienced teenager can give you

I would recommend talking to a doctor. I had similar issues and decided to do some breathing exercises before bed. Helped immensely! I suggest trying it

One, don't listen to Hrafna and what he wrote in his wall of text. I didn't read it all, but he obviously doesn't understand that some mental issues and disorders can't be fixed or solved just by trying to change something around you rather than it being something internal that won't change that easily.
Two, no, you're not the only one to have thoughts like that. I've suffered from depression since I was in high school, so for 20 years or so now, and I have had thoughts like that plenty of times before. They aren't always that intense, but sometimes they are. What I try to do is distract myself from them by watching or reading something that I know will take my mind off of them, talking to a good friend about them or something else that will get my mind off of it, playing a game, getting out, etc.. Someone else mentioned living in the moment and concentrating on what's around you to get your mind off of the thoughts and also mindful thinking, both of which are things that can help as well.
Three, even if you don't have a job and money right now, you can still apply for state health insurance or find a clinic or something around where you live where you can get free or reduced fee counseling based on your income level. Or you can even maybe find a college or university near you that offers counseling from the students doing internships for that field, though you may not always get the same person to talk to in that kind of setting since the students change rotation. Either way, it would probably help a lot to talk to someone about it. I know that you've mentioned that you're in New Jersey before, so I'm sure that you can find something around where you live.

There are several less expensive options:

1) Talking to a pastor or priest. They actually do some free counselling and sometimes have contacts to free counselling services.
2) If you are part of a company some companies have resources such as the phone numbers to helplines etc (talk to the human resource department if there is one there).
4) If you have a benefits package with your job sometimes counselling is covered or they at least they have contacts.
5) Some Universities and Colleges can also have free counselling services.

Its normal, from what I have seen.
There is not much you can do about it.

Let the pain out from the thoughts and you will feel better and forget until the next time and just rinse and repeat

I have the same problem.

I'm considering going on antidepressants to see if it'll help lessen the symptoms.

I suggest you do the same if the above advice doesn't work. My mum said antidepressants helped her immensely and she didn't even have to use it for long.


Whatever you do though, don't turn to religious people or religion for help, they aren't qualified people and they will try to brainwash you into thinking an imaginary fairy is there for you.

I hope you're an atheist though.
