How do I make sure I know that what I'm thinking isn't real?
It's hard. Some of my obsessions I really care about. I have a few things I really care about like some sports.If your getting triggered from research, try to put it aside. I’m honestly the same way. I know easier said than done.
I think somehow everything is connected all of us everything around us what if we have all been pigeon holed together for a reason and we going round in circles bouncing of each others fears and beliefs instead of making some sort of connection to what is happening to usEven researching something is bad because I can start to become obsessed with the subject to the point I believe I'm connected in some way.

Stay grounded and remember who u are, yr past, yr memorys, hang on to u, talk about fun memorys with ppl u know well and trust to reassure yrselfHow do I make sure I know that what I'm thinking isn't real?
I feel like im getting peter and the wolfed im constantly worried about friends and family even ppl i dont know and im open in trying to warn ppl and then nothing happens or stuff does but no believes its anything to do with what i was saying i think its just to lure u in to a false sense of security and then thats when they will strike again so yr constanly living in fear or paranoia i feel terrorised does anyone else get this?If it's something your passionate about start with writing evidence that supports your belief. Don't put feelings, assumptions about why people are acting the way they are and unsubstantiated beliefs. Just the facts, what was done, how it was done, how many times and on.
Than list evidence against your belief, again stick to the facts. If you have hard time with this you can ask a friend or someone neutral. Here's some questions you can ask yourself that can lead you in the write direction:
1. Is there alternative way of viewing the situation
2. Is what I'm thinking an overgeneralization
3. What's really likely to happen and what are the consequences.
4. Are there things that ease the negative facets of the situation.
5. How likely are the worse case scenario to happens. What are the odds? Are they 1 in 5, 1 in 25, etc.
Than incorporate items from both lists, in new more balanced thoughts.
