Personal Mind control

I’m not talking about people controlling your mind. Instead I’m talking about controlling your mind to block thoughts. When I was psychotic I was controlling my mind to avoid dangerous things. For example (imagine a virtual world, overlaying the real one, in your mind. Like a video game). I had to avoid thinking about things being destroyed or they happened (in the virtual world). I spent countless hours just trying not to think things.

Anyone else do anything similar, or some form of self mind control?

I have dealt with this before. I don’t like to fly because I feel like I could crash the plane with my thoughts. Therefore when I have had to fly it was a very long, stressful thing where I was focused on every little thought. It can be an exhausting thing to deal with.
