What helps you identify illogical thoughts? I have these super intense fears about getting pregnant (despite not being sexually active) and they cause me to change clothes several times a day, avoid showering, and fear public toilets. I think the biggest problem is that I can’t tell whether the thought is an actual concern or not, and so I obsess and do research over and over. Anyone have tips for whether I should pursue these thoughts or ignore them? How do you know when to be concerned?

      I've been having this same problem! I've been making a chart for this type of thing where it says what the thought is, what I feel like I need to do, why I want to do that, the odds of my thought actually coming true, and how I can handle the situation if it somehow does come true

        @Mashka It sounds like a post traumatic symptom of sexual abuse in your past, sometimes our brain protects us from remembering it. Don't dig into those memories, live "today" and know you're fine.
