Okay this is bothering me. I was always plagued with obsessional thoughts whenever my anxiety was at it's peak. I do not have compulsions. Anyhow for example the other day I was at the restaurant and a guy glanced at me. Nothing weird about that - just looked my way and I started thinking, "Why is he looking at me." I then started thinking, "OMG what if I become paranoid." I then started getting anxiety over this. Another thing was I was out late taking my dog out and a car passed me by and I thought, "What are they doing driving around so late." What if their some sort of killer." Then back to "Great I'm becoimg paranoid!" Then I recall the doctor asking me if I think people on TV are talking to me. I said no. Then while watching TV tonight I thought, "What if I thought that people were talking to me?" Great now I'm becoming crazy. UGH...... why do I think this stupid stuff! Scary dumb thoughts that mean NOTHING yet I think think stuff and think more and it just elevates my anxiety. My doctor told me to just tell yourself their just obessional thoughts that mean nothing!!! I'm in the process on going back onto Zoloft after 5 years. I was on Celexa but it's no longer working. I did watch a movie a few days ago about his psycho killer woman that was paranoid etc... & since then I think these scarey things. So how all do you cope with this. Someone tell me I'm not going paranoid it's just obessional thinking.
