okay so i been struggling for weeks now with my intrusive thoughts! I'm constantly scared that i am saying them out loud! it got so bad that i literally hold my lips together! just today my aunt was talking to me and boom i had an intrusive thought and i got so scared i said it out loud! she still acted normal but I'm scared i said something that might hurt her. this is making me depressed and anxious. I'm also dealing with embarrassment. i constantly feel like I'm embarrassing myself. my brain keeps reminding me of old embarrassing things i said and did in the past. i know that was a lot but im really struggling right now, could use some help

Hey, sunnyday3, that definitely does not sound fun, understand why you'd be anxious. Have you seen a doctor about this? It sounds like something that you could use some help on, and maybe some therapy to help w the thought process as well as feeling like you are out of control with it.

I get intrusive thoughts like the OP, and what helped me was medication.
