Hi,

I also suffer from disturbing thoughts. It is aweful and very distressing. If i stood at the edge of a cliff i would instantly think what it would be like to jump.
They are like bad dreams, except i'm awake.

I have booked a holiday abroad with my family, first one for six years and i am not looking forward to it at all. I keep having this recurring thought that i'm asleep and i sleep walk and throw myself off the balcony. I am scared, and don't even want to go on the holiday anymore.

I constantly have horrible thoughts like this, some to horrible to mention. Someone on another post mentioned it is something to do with OCD. This would make sense because i certainly thinking i have OCD.

It's weird, it thought there was something wrong with me and i was alone. It is just so horrible that you cannot turn these thoughts off.

I think the only thing that relieves my mind of these thoughts for a while, is something other destressing thing which occupies my mind.

I am suffering anxiety and depression from work, this currently occupies all of my mind, which i suppose is good because i really couldn't cope with both conditions.

Anyway thanks for listening
Paul

Feeling alone with it is the worst. It's why I posted on here, I wouldn't normally do something like that, but I knew there had to be someone out there who felt the way I do.
It sounds like your are worse than mine though, mine have been getting progressively worse since I was about 11, well that's when I remember first having them. Mine go away for a while, like I can go a week maybe even two without any, but they come back for months at a time. I definitely have them more of the time than not.

Hi Paul,

It seems that your plate is way to full, anxiety I believe plays a major role in these thoughts. Each time you have a disturbing thought , ask yourself, Is this a rationale thought or irrational thought, depending on the answer you can self talk yourself down......enjoy your time with family, it may seem you don't want to go now but you'll be happier once you're there...look after yourself...
