    Suffering from obsessions! Please help!!!!!!!!!!

    I am really scared because I have these rude/discriminating/offending thoughts in my head about different cultures/religions! It's like saying these types of people should die, etc. I REALLY DO NOT agree with these mean thoughts but they won't go away.
    Can someone tell me, are these obsessions or do I really think of them myself even though I don't agree with them? If they weren't obsessions and it was me doing it consciously, does this make me a bad person (even though I don't agree with these thoughts)? Will obsessions happen in real life.

    These thoughts are making me go insane. What I am most scared of is that they aren't obsessions and that I am being a terrible person for thinking of these things consciously and that they might happen. Please help me

    no, they won't happen in real life.

    it's the disease, not you. a lot of times it's blasphemy as well. you didn't think it, the disorder did.

    i have met people for the first time and have been shaking hands with them and then i thought "what if i throw hot coffee in their face" or "what if i push them off the balcony."

    it's all BS. i'm the biggest nonviolent (basically pacifist) person you'll ever meet.

    try to stop stressing over it. i've read a number of books on OCD and they all cover this particular situation.
