Im currently on lexapro and kpin daily. I started having ocd'ish intrusive thoughts that i really dont know the people in my life. Are my parents really my parents? Where am I? I feel as if im losing my mind and want to go to a mental hospital. My parents tell me to relax an just realize its anxiety. Im so terrified! I talk to my psychologist tomorrow. My question i guess is how can u tell anxious thoughts from actual psychosis because i feel like im losing my identity and everything i question? How can ocd/anxiety get so bad? I wonder if they have inpatient facilities for anxiety and depression, any info would be nice.

I right there with you. I have not had the exact same thoughts but the intrusive thoughts that i have occasionally are very scary. I understand your pain. I usually can feel better when i concentrate on something else, or sometimes ill sit down and just think about my thoughts. I tell my self that what im thinking isnt true or real and its not going to happen. I think to my self how silly it is that i am having these thoughts. Try some of these tactics and just try your hardest to rationalize with yourself that you are perfectly OK. Best of luck to you!

I also have thoughts like these. I actually have thoughts that I am in another world and these people that I know are not the people I once knew. Its very scary! It is part of depersonalization I believe. You know you are not crazy because if you were you wouldn't even have the capacity to ask about your mental health. Just know you are not alone and these thoughts are just apart of anxiety trying to mess with you.

Hello,  :action-smiley-065:  :action-smiley-065:

Maybe you will think then, that there is something really
wrong with you and that it is not only anxiety at work.
You may get the idea that there is no solution for you.
But you will be fine! You have to give yourself some time
to recover, and your feeling of alienation will also dissolve
if you just give it enough time. Don't let your current feelings
and condition fool you!

i agree with the above poster even though i have a really hard time swallowing it myself. if i was really losing my mind, i would not have the capacity to truly know it. that's what my psych tells me anyways. i'm trying to believe her,

i think what you are feeling is depersonalization- a detachment from everything and it's causing your mind to think up some crazy stuff. it's amazing what the mind will come up with when it is anxious, and what it will cause you to believe.

I know how you feel. I get scary thoughts just like that. I fear that I'll be with people I know and then suddenly worry that I'm not really who I am or something along those lines. It scares me. It starts a very vicious cycle and then my thoughts snowball.

Everything suggested in this post qualifies as a compulsion. Indulging in these things only serves to strengthen unwanted thoughts. Your thoughts are just data, and do not have the power you assume they have. Who you are is not generated by thoughts. Who you are is something much more than that.

Please look into CBT and ERP. It will really help gain the right perspective on the relationship you have with your own mind.

Its all anxiety dude.. i used to have thoughts like am i really here could this be the matrix lol

think about it this way, people who are having a psychotic episode dont know there are, they believe 100% what is happening to them is real.

the mere fact that you are questioning it tells me its anxiety and that you have a fear of going insane.

stop questioning the thoughts let them be there with no resistance,

the way you feel will be down to depersonalisation (google it and it will explain what it is and will explain why you feel weird)

it is the need to questions the thoughts change the way we feel that makes us worse,]

the best saying i have ever heard is.... you will never get better until you stop trying to get better, "paul david at last a life"

there is loads a pages on web giving advise on anxiety offering treatments for this and that dont listen its a waste of money there is no miracle cure, the only person that can help you get better is you, google anxiety no more that should give you some uselful info.

best of luck

I was also on lexapro and hydroxozine daily the hydroxizine would help with anxiety attacks alittle bit but it didnt stop the thoughts, i found out alittle down the road that the constant weird out of nowhere thoughts were ocd, so then i went back on prozac and im just in a bad situation so far even though it is supposed to help ocd more, but the thoughts are also something bad i am going through right now:(

howdy,

I can usually tell when im having ocd thoughts. I get very anxious, and feel that I dont think as rationally as I usually do. ive had all sorts of obsessions and I can tell you it will get better. I usually have to talk to my parents when Im going through an obessiom or complusion. they help me realize when im having an oc moment. they dont understand what im going through but they try to see things from my description of ocd. I think we all go through times where we feel like its never going to get better but it will. just takes patience.
