I don't believe you can stop the thinking. I think you can only learn to live with it and accept it and that through time it will ease of it's own accord. I know it's difficult and debilitating. I experience it every day of my life.
I'm sorry you deal with it. But since you think those thoughts can become real..I'm very scared and I need to stop it somehow.

If the thoughts are negative and intrusive you can counteract them with positive thoughts. To begin.with it may feel forced and contrived but with practice you can achieve a more balanced style of thinking.

This is exactly what I do now, it doesn't really help unfortunately. But thank you anyway!

It may not help immediately. It takes time and patience. I think you have to face them somehow rather than push them away. I hope you find some way of coping better with this 🙂
