Mine are usually really mean and degrading toward other people. Things I would never actually think about them.

Mine are always violent or religious.

Don’t want to elaborate,

But I did gain back some control doing CBT,

I don’t dwell on intrusive thoughts near as much anymore.

Mine are really violent, disturbingly sexual, or racist. All the exact opposite my my real thoughts.

In the past I’ve had religious intrusive thoughts (scrupulosity).
I don’t know if the ones I’ve now are ‘simply’ obsessions or intrusive thoughts, they are aggressive or inappropriate phrases that take control of my head.

Sexual about family members or people I’m talking to, combined with a fear that my thoughts are audible, and violent ones towards small creatures in my care or power.

Anti religious. Government fears.

Usually really rude, over the top aggressive thoughts directed towards others or myself

usually sexual or violent, many unacceptable sexual thoughts about loved ones. ive found redefining what i consider unacceptable helps me tolerate the thoughts. they dont cause a lot of anxiety anymore, generally my thoughts are pretty immoral and dark basically all the time. even if they arent intrusive i have many dirty thoughts, almost like thats my natural way of thinking.

anti religious, and very violent towards myself. I don’t act out on the voices, but they get quiet disturbing.

Very disturbing thoughts to kill my loved ones or harm them. They are NOT my thoughts. I would never harm anyone. It’s Alien messing with me. Fortunately I don’t get them as often as I used to. It’s all random.

Mine are usually racist. Very quick and short outbursts in my head… thank goodness not out loud. I find that if I don’t ignore, but acknowledge and “rebuke”, similarly to how I handle voices, they go away.

I barely get intrusive thoughts anymore. I think mine were caused mostly by energy drinks! Please stay away from that stuff guys!

Constant dialog of thoughts which dwell on the past, tell me i’m not good enough, obsses compare, etc…

Really dumb ■■■■. Like if I see a knife ‘stab yourself’ and I’m like nah.

Or staring into a nice campfire ‘grab the embers’ and I go shhhh.

Also gross stuff that’s unhygienic.

I’m able to handle it though, I’ve had them for quite a while so I’ve gotten used to it.

Once though, I had a terrible thing happen to me. I was petting my cat, which I love more then all the children on the earth combined. And the voice in my head said ‘snap her neck, it would be so easy’

I was SOOO upset I cried and cried and wanted to die and ended up going to the hospital because I was so ■■■■■■ up over it.

I’m afraid of my intrusive thoughts, have a phobia of thinking about celebrities and famous people and regular people. I have been threatened before just wish for sane and positive thoughts. Intrusive thoughts makes me very anxious and depressed.
