Whoa. So that’s what it’s called.

I am so sorry to hear you are struggling with intrusive thoughts — and maybe racing thoughts. I’ve never done any self harm, but the intrusive thoughts I get are of pretty gruesome injuries to me or sometimes inanimate objects with sharp objects. When it comes on I could just be driving down the road or sitting at dinner, though in fairness I usually have been triggered in some way and cannot get regulated. I’m fortunate that my doc prescribed an as-needed medication (abilify) that gets me out of the ditch pretty quickly. If you’ve do not have or have not talked with a psychiatrist, I highly recommend it — it made a huge difference for me. I hope you get some relief and some sleep soon…
