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

Intrusive thoughts could be the so-called "Pure O" that has no compulsive behavior. I think those thoughts are anxiety-based. I've had obsessive thoughts, but when I feel calm they don't occur much or don't feel bothersome.
