I have been very tormented lately. I want some reassurance that it's normal. I have been diagnosed with OCD and general anxiety since the age of seven and depression since age eleven. For many years now I have been having intrusive thoughts regarding disturbing thoughts, such as people dying. No matter what I do the thought won't go away. I understand that these are OCD.
I have also had racing thoughts. My mind will have dozens of thoughts at once that make me spin out of control. These racing thoughts change from worrisome, paranoid feelings that I'm being watched and people are talking about me to very creative thoughts that make me feel like I'm extra special and I have powers that need to be accessed. These thoughts can be so intense I get the chillbumps. Then, after a matter of weeks, days or sometimes hours they go back to unhappy, scary obsessive thoughts about people dying or feeling like my future is doomed or unsuccesful. Is OCD enitrely to blame or is there something else going on? I just need some reassurance. Thank you.
