Weird thoughts

Posted , 5 users are following.

Sometimes when I'm not doing anything I get these weird thoughts like for example I wonder if I'm the only person who really has a conscious on earth, like everyone else is not real and I'm the only really person. I have been suffering dp/dr so it may be that but it freaks me out to think about. Can anyone recommend a way to let these thoughts go? Also has anyone else ever had this kind of thought before?

    I've had these thoughts many times. i've also had thoughts like "what if we never existed? what if earth never existed? what would everything be like?" have you thought of those things too? It freaks me out when i do get those thoughts but they eventually go away when i distract myself. So try distracting yourself with anything and keep yourself occupied. Video games have helped me a lot with my anxiety and I recentley bought myself an XboxOne, so far it's helped me so much

    These sound like the sort of thoughts I sometimes get.  I think its normal, after all we don't know the anwers to these questions.  It can be scarey, well, I find it scarey, but I think of all the Science fiction writing, the writters must have been thinking along some strange lines.  I think you'r right to distract yourself if you want them to go away, too much thought about things that scare you might not be good.

      I agree with you too, glad I'm not the only one. I like to know the answers to the questions I have so its hard for me to just accept that I won't know. Oh well.

    Unfortunately sometimes we think weird things. I was wondering what it would be like if the Moon was really an egg the other day. That is the danger of thinking when you have nothing specific to think about.

    There is nothing we can do to simply stop you thinking. However, if these thoughts are becoming intrusive and affecting your life, seeing your GP might be a good bet, there may be some antidepressants that can help. But I honestly wouldn't worry just because you think weird stuff from time to time, we all do. Are you still able to concentrate when you need to? These thoughts don't happen while you are, say, preparing a meal and be so intense they stop you from making that meal? You should only seek help if they are affecting your life negatively.

    If they concern you, but not enough to go to the doctors, then distraction techniques are best. Basically, doing anything engaging. Do something that requires a little concentration. I hope this help? xxx
