Intrusive thoughts - trigger warning
i’m really struggling with intrusive thoughts recently, i’ll be feeling okay and then all of a sudden my brain is just like “hurt yourself” and in my head i see images of what i could do and i feel how it would feel and it’s so vivid that a couple of times it’s caused me to have a panic attack but most of the time i just kind of shut down and have to try not to listen to them. i used to hurt myself regularly but i’ve been clean for about five months now. i also have thoughts about how i should eat less or make myself sick. even when i sleep i sometimes dream about hurting myself or about situations to do with eating and wake up through the night feeling anxious. i don’t know how to cope with these thoughts and i’m scared soon i’ll give in and listen to them and do something bad.
