Can anyone help me. I had intrusive thoughts that were at first specific (The word OCD in red, the word DEATH in blue) and my mind would not stop flickering to it. Whenever I'd have a moment of peace my brain would flash to the words. Now it isn't even a word, its just knowing that the thought is there that my mind won't stop flickering to it. It feels like there is a foot on my brain because I can't focus on anything else when this happens. It is so frustrating. I go shopping and my mind can't stop thinking about this thought in my head. As I said, its not even a specific thought, the presence of it is just so annoying and uncomfortable. And now my mind just automatically reverts to the thought which enforces it. PLEASE HELP.

hi and :welcome:

I think I have had that sort of thing in the past
can you play some music, maybe pick a favourite track
turn it up if that is socially possible
and play it several times so you can change the ear worm ?

Awwww so it eventually went away?!?? I’m hoping mine will too! I’ve only been doing this for two or three weeks but it bothers me so much. My OCD jumps from thing to thing but this is so bothersome. It’s not even a full thought, it just makes me uncomfortable and my head hurt KNOWING that the intrusive thought is there. Hoping this goes away soon. Thank you so much for your response. Next time it happens I’m gonna throw on my headphones and listen to music.

My main experience of troubling intrusive thoughts was a good number of years ago now. Out of nowhere I started thinking I was going to die and leave my family to cope alone (mean die eventually not imminently). Accompanying this was an excruciating pain inside that I needed to stop. When the thoughts came, the pain came. I think I was put on an anti depressant again. I have a continued thought of death. Sometimes that it is coming in, sometimes that I want it. I have no idea how to get rid of it.
