Angry Anxiety and disturbing thoughts

Hi, I have just spent the last hour reading through the anxiety section and feel a little better now.
I have been feeling terrible over the last 3 weeks I get really bad anxiety and thoughts that make me cringe, my thoughts can be of someone I really like and respect exposing their privates to me, or thoughts of them being perverse.
I cannot rationally see why these thoughts come into my head and feel like i am loosing it.
I have had a very stressful year and have just begun taking st john`s wort for anxiety and depression.
I have periods where i am very happy and then all of a sudden a thought comes into my head and freaks me out.
If I am out with friends I am afraid that I will say something daft, flip , loose it, or whatever and boom I am even more anxious.
I have constant internal Dialogue , either positive affirmations that i have been trying to use or thoughts that disturb me.
I am 34 married with 3 children and not sure what to do next, no one has a clue what is going on , I would love some advise from someone who has had similar experiences.Bondai.

Re: Anxiety and disturbing thoughts

Ditto! Pure OCD is an anxiety dissorder. Definitely check out the other thread. There are quite few people who are having disturbing thoughts liek yours. Maybe not the same content, but the same problem. I personally have had disturbing thoughts like yours as well. OCD doesn't dicriminate in what it throws at you.

Re: Anxiety and disturbing thoughts

I have never been told I have OCD but I have GAD anyway I have had pretty much the same type of thoughts as you have described in this thread and the other longer one.Sometimes they do freak me out depending on the thought and of course it is always things that are highly unlikely to happen or never will.The part where you say you are scared you will say something crazy or whatever when out with friends well I feel that way too sometimes and sometimes when im out I suddenly feel odd and like I may go nuts at any time and then I notice my breathing is off and the whole shebang I have a panic attack which others usualy cannot notice.I tend to be on the queit to myself side usualy ,unless ive had a few drinks or im with long time friends or my family.I do know what you mean though about those sudden weird off the wall thoughts.I sometimes wonder if most or all people have these types of thoughts too.
