      Intrusive sexual thoughts about the men I work with. Very upsetting 😥

      When I’m home alone I keep having intrusive thoughts that someone is watching me, or someone is in the house (even could be a supernatural something even though I don’t believe in that stuff) it’s really scary and makes me really anxious 😥

        @BeaBea women have this? I thought it was just guys. I have this all the time and I hate it because I feel disgusting for thinking of it and that it's so degrading and I don't want to feel controlled by a desire for a girl but at the same time these thoughts never go away. Not always sexual, but most of the time unwanted and illogical like "hey tell her she's cute" like.. "she's already told me several times to stop complimenting her" lol 😅

      When I’m walking down my hallway in the dark, I often imagine there will be a wire strung across the hall that will slice me in half if I walk too fast 😂

      The oven will explode. The wheels of semi trucks will pop off. We will get into a car accident. The ceiling fan is going to fall on me.

      Tw: abuse That I don't actually feel love. For the first time in my 18 years of living, I'm in a relationship that is healthy and supportive and is the best thing that's ever happened to me. But I'm terrified that I'm manipulating myself into believing I'm feeling this.. About a year ago, I left a 6 month long extremely physically and emotionally abusive relationship. Every since I left (and even during the relationship) I questioned if the abuse actually happened. I keep thinking "What if I was reading the situation wrong? What if I formed the memories, subconsciously, just as a way to give myself an excuse to leave the relationship without feeling bad for breaking up with him?" I've talked with my therapist about this loads and she tells me to check the facts on what I KNOW happened in the relationship. I expressed this fear to my partner about a week ago while in the car and he pulled over so that we could have the conversation without any distraction because he wants so badly to care for me and to know how he can help with my worries. I told him about how afraid I am that, if I did manipulate myself into believe my relationship with my ex was abusive, I might do the same to him. I'm 100% sure that I love this and that I would never do a thing to hurt him and that he'd never do a thing to hurt me, but will my fears of this break us apart?

        @LunaOtto him pulling over to continue the conversation sounds like he truly cares and wants to put you first. Focus on that. Regardless of what happened with your ex, this sounds like a good guy to be with who will help you through this

      That I don’t actually exist somehow.

      My Takeout food is always laced with some kind of drug

        @Justinerosexx this got so bad for me that for a whole year I was convinced my food was...i honestly think it went beyond just intrusive at that point...it still sneaks up among others. I'm managing better now.

          @Nae99 Yes the thoughts can get so bad that you don’t even want to eat your food anymore. That’s great they are manageable now! :)

      My OCD brain says to set my cat on fire. It doesnt really phase me much anymore I know its because I love my cat. ERP helped. Light him up!

      Anything from A-Z really. Chances are if it's something that most people would be horrified to hear someone else say it's been an intrusive thought of mine. Most thoughts I get have put me in the place of I'd have to take drastic measures to myself before them taking place. That kind of thing. Some are just silly, like something I said wrong or maybe something that happened 10 years ago. Most unfortunately are horrible and make me feel like a monster. I would love for intrusive thoughts to just be weird!

      Mine is crazy. I’m always thinking that someone is going to kill me & my daughter will find my body. I cannot shake that obsessive thought. It makes it hard for me to be home alone too. I’m crazy about locking doors & windows. I’ve been this way for about 9 years now.
