Does anybody with anxiety ever get a random mind pop? It’s where I’ll just be doing something and all of a sudden a thought pops in my mind but it almost doesn’t make sense . and it only lasts a few seconds or so. It’s hard to explain. It’s not anything I was thinking about. Just wondering if anybody else experienced this ?

    All the time Jan, I find I have mind pops about the purpose of existence or a random thought about something I did 10 years ago that I regret.

    Completely random but harmless! I usually forget I thought about it a day later! Maybe anxiety mixed with an active mind can cause these thoughts? similarly to how health anxiety can make you think you are dying for something as simple as a sore forehead! Us anxious folk have very intelligent brains surprisingly and sometimes we just can't stop thinking no matter what it is!
