Hi, hope you're okay!
I'm no expert, so I maybe wrong, but what you are describing sounds like Pure O OCD: where you have unwanted thoughts that seem either crazy or repulsive.

Me for example: I might be in a kitchen cooking and see the knife on the counter and think "what if I stabbed someone now?". I don't want to stab someone, and I shock myself by even thinking about it, but my mind just goes there without my control.

A good book to read about this is 'The Imp of the Mind' - it explains why we get these thoughts.

Also, you're not going crazy! This could be a common aspect of OCD (and something that I experience regularly).

Hope you're ok .

Hello, I can hear that you are suffering. All I want to say, is that no one can control their mind. You more you try to the more you will suffer. Mindfulness is good. Also, what you resist persists. Try to accept what the mind does, it can't control you. It isn't you, just thought but at the moment, I know that is feels like it can because you are in it. Mindfulness is a great way to give yourself some space around it and see the mind as it really is. D xx

Sounds exactly like what I have , I've had it since I was very small , it has evolved and changed over te years , I used to have obvious compulsions , like tapping stuff twice and spinning aroun the other way the same amount of times , and I've always had realy bad thoughts , it has changed so much , now I can't even tell if I have compulsions or not , it all mental compulsions , but I can't tell if I have them anymore , my mind never shuts up to me , and in public I believe I have Terrets or something where o say embarrassing stuff in public , but sometimes I don't believe it but when I'm in public I do believe it , and even if I tell myself that it's not real my mind won't let me , and the only thing like compulsions are just explaining to people that it's not true what I'm saying in my head , but I don't know if they are compulsions , its like ocd but without compulsions , I don't know if it's paranoia , or schitzophrenia , but most of the time I believe I either have Terrets or it's like the Truman show but there's a mind reading machine , I dot know what I have , but when I saw these proffesionals about it they were not supportive , all they asked me was am I doing well in school , I said I have no friends , and I get realy upset over stuff , and tired , but the woman asked do I get good grades , and I said yes , so then she said it wasn't affecting my life as I can get a good job with good grades ... Blah blah blah , so she ignored me . An no only myself , but I get upset over how horrible people are , I get depressed over mean and stupid things.
