Advice about intrusive thoughts 2 Years, 5 Months ago  
I've had panic disorder for nearly 10 years now. I've learned to manage it well to where I've been back to normal again for many years without taking medications. Id say for the past 7 years I've been virtually panic free. However, recently within the past few months I've been getting a different type of symptom; intrusive thoughts. Not sure how they initially began, or what triggered em. In particular, I seem to obsess about knives now; scared I might pick up a knife and stab someone with it. Or go and get one from the kitchen and stab someone with it. I get so anxious I may act on it, it turns into a full out panic attack. All it seems to take is a flash of an image of a knife in my mind, or when I get around knives or other sharp objects I get anxious. Afraid I might actually do it, or like I'm holding back the urge to do it or something. I think this is even more scary than the bodily sensation anxiety of panic disorder because it involves ther people, or could potentially put other people in danger. Thats what scares me. I've spent the past month now stressed and anxious of those images coming back into my mind. Caught in kind of a cycle. I was just wondering if anyone else has dealt with this, and if so what has helped them get past it. Or stop the thoughts. Will medication help with this? I've gone 10 years without needing medication, but I've been thinking I may need something lately.

Re:Advice about intrusive thoughts 2 Years, 5 Months ago  
Welcome jwellz, I'm glad you found us. I can understand your fears where these thoughts are concerned. Yours could be a mild form of morbid ocd and left untreated can become extremely debilitating whereas we cut ourselves off from the outside word for fear of our compulsive thoughts. I also experienced a form of this type of ocd which included thoughts of tragic violence or accidents involving my loved ones. My solution was through exposure therapy.

Since I am not an expert on ocd, this excellent article written by a foremost expert/specialist in the treatment of this type of ocd might help you better understand. This may also help you decide which route to take in regards to treatment. Please know that there are different forms of morbid obsessions and not all compulsions pertain to every individual. The levels of ocd varies. Rest assured, you're not alone in this. There are many of us out there who have found a way out.
