Sometimes I conjure up really crazy scenarios in my head that places out like a horror movie scene. Mostly happens on nights like tonight when I'm deeply depressed.
I do this too. It's usually the worst case scenario with something I'm about to do and often ends with me dying. Ie I'm about to walk down stairs and a video plays in my head of me slipping, hitting my head on the railing and falling down the stairs.
This has been happening as long as I can remember
oh wow. I'm sorry you have to experience that. I'm sure it's a little scary. Thankfully mine is things that would never be possible in real world scenarios.
I mean mine tend to be possible but not always realistic
I remember as a child in bed at night I had one of these flashes where arrows rained down on my bed, smashing through the windows to get to me from the garden. Super weird... 😋
Happened last night for me and I couldn’t sleep for two hours. I ended up putting on music and focusing on that until I passed out.
I'm glad the music helps you ☺️ that's good.
best way to distract the mind without making it more awake
I use audio books. I need something to focus on so I don't think
As long as it doesn’t get out of hand, sounds like an alright coping mechanism. Imagination is a good tool for expressing emotions in a way that may be safer than in real life. I think it’s okay to let yourself imagine, while knowing you’re safe in real life.
it wouldn't. And is impossible as my scenarios are unrealistic, such as what would happen to me in a zombie apocalypse scenario, etc etc. I don't ever think of the real world things. Just crazy out there stuff like that is where my imagination runs wild.
Same here. Sometimes I blame it on the tv shows I like to watch but sometimes it’s really dark intrusive thoughts that randomly pop into my head so playing music I like really brings me back to “reality” almost
I really can relate to this so if you ever need a chat feel free to measage me x
