Okay so just wanting to check if anyone else does this or this is me being weird and paranoid or whether im to tell anyone, mainly my psychiatrist about it. Does anyone else think of scenarios randomly and end up getting panicked and spooked by them when there not even real? Like sit there and think of things where people are going to harm you. Examples of this just hapoened tonight, and most nights tbh, i work in a bar and when it closes im usually last one left along with manager to close up, but I’ll sit there and think of situations that can happen but most likely wont and I’ll upset myself by working myself up. Tonight the alarm wouldnt set and it kept saying different things for the reason as to why it wasnt setting but we checked every door in the whole pub three times and they were all shut and locked, but in my head i thought what if someones here and is opening the doors everytime we check :/ i know its really strange and i spooked myself and got worked up over it and paranoid. And another example is every night im on a close, or come home anytime when its darks tbh, i run from my car to the gate and then with keys already in hand will very quickly unlock the door whilst checking that no one is coming to get me and then close the door and lock it immediately before checking numerous of times that ive locked it so no one can come get me :/ its very strange why ive started doing this in the last number of months. Its just really freaking me out and im panicking myself making me think paranoid thoughts and i know there stupid. As if someone is waiting in back garden for me to open the door but it doesnt stop me doing it and running every night just in case.

Does anyone else think like this or have over rational thoughts about things that arent real scenarios and are unlikely to ever happen?

    Hello,
    It’s not just you…
    I am often alone, and in my head, i start spinning imaginary arguments with people; my fiancée, my mother in law , and mainly my workmates.
    It’s horrific, because the next time i see them, i have convinced myself that the “argument” happend…
    Please feel free to write me back, i am glad you shared this (:

      Omg! I do this too! I think of scenarios and will be convinced they are real and about to happen and ill cry over it when its never even happening. I get so upset or angry sometimes but its hard to differentiate from reality when in these moments. You’re welcome and Thank you for reassurence I am not alone 🙂

    This happens to me All. The. Time! It’s always a really quick flash in my head and 99% of the time I haven’t the slightest idea why it happens. Literally in 2.2 seconds my mind will create the most outrageous scenario and I’m left thinking “What the hell?” Or “Who else in the world comes up with this crap-there’s something wrong with you!”. I had a good one this afternoon, but I’ll spare you the details. I take comfort in the fact that sometimes I find these thoughts highly amusing too. They’re so disturbing at times, all I can do is laugh at myself:) Thankfully I also have a slightly obsessive research-everything-possible-online talent and do know we most definitely not the only people in the world doing this!

      Thank you so much! Honestly scares me all the time. I legit do this random points of the day everyday but mine are never anything funny or good, there only bad and normally about people coming after me or trying to harm me. Its really strange. Im so glad you shared this with me, gives me some relief in knowing im not the only one, thank you 🙂

    You are soooo not alone. I do this literally almost every day. I just like start to think something and it escalates into some really big spooky thing and I freak out. It’ll pass, I think. Luck.

    I’ve done this a lot. It happens sometimes before a panic/anxiety attack ensues. It is completely normal, though.
