Hi so I’m gonna go straight to it because It’s getting really really bad
So uh a few months ago I started having these horrible, disturbing thoughts (usually they’re related to my toe nails don’t ask me why haha) at first it was just things I hated but it escalated really quickly and right now I can’t even focus, think straight for a minute or sit still because of these, which is bad because I’m a student and I have classes 8 hours every day. I almost can’t sleep anymore, I started harming myself to focus on something else but I know I can’t keep doing this. If anyone knows what it’s called (if it has a name) or/and how to treat it, please help me.

Hi - I'm sorry you are going through this pain. We can't diagnose here and even if I could I would need more information about your situation.

Still, you seem to be suffering some heavy anxiety. Have you thought about a therapist? Or maybe even a school counselor, to start?

Hello thanks for replying to the post, i kind of explained it all but it’s really hard to put into words, like I would call these intrusive thoughts but I’m not sure because I never really experienced this type of issues. If, as you said, it is anxiety, do you have any tips to calm it down without starting a whole therapy process ?

While we can't diagnose, if you hadn't already, I'd suggest taking a look at the OCD forum and see if others' stories of dealing with intrusive thoughts resonates with you. Defined as a thought that's inherently disturbing or distressing to you, and isn't something that connects with your core being. Such as distressing harm thoughts (which I have) which I have no conscious want or intention of carrying out.
Tell someone you love them today, for Life is short. But scream it at them in Klingon, for Life is also confusing and terrifying.

We do not delete posts.
Let it go.
Without (forum) rules, we all might as well be up in a tree flinging our crap at each other.

If you are suffering high anxiety things that personally bother you can seem to exacerbate in your mind. It's like telling someone not to think of a pink elephant guaranteed they'll think of a pink elephant. When I personally was getting thoughts relating to issues I was sensitive too I found philosophising and learning to make light to myself of my paranoia's. I did learn to relax and not get so anxious over the issue this way.
This did not help me get to sleep I tried sleepers and felt they made my mentality worse. Eventually I learned how to meditate and fall to sleep to the sound of a rainy forest and this did indeed help.
Diagnosis - Paranoid Schizophrenia although challenged.
Medication - Clopixol injection 4 weekly.
Personal diagnosis - I battle with the chemistry and biological effects of Clopixol every day trying to improve on the heath and range of my approach.
I try to improve my thinking. Hopefully some good ideas shine through.
