Going out of my mind

I am diagnosed with Schizophrenia and OCD. Something is really bothering me and I can't reason with my thoughts.
There is this guy that seems to dislike me. I keep thinking that maybe I had a few too may drinks and he hated the way I acted now he shuns me.
Now the problem is he is not a friend or someone I really know. What hurts me is that if I did not act the way I did he may have a different attitude towards me. My mind won't reason that I may have done nothing at all that that is just the way he is. A problem he has. I can not stand the thought of someone not liking me. Now the real problem is I have probably made all this up in my mind with a worse case senario. And I go over it and over it trying to tell myself that it is silly to worry about someone you don't even know. We are not even friends. But my thoughts have become tangled into trying to distroy my thinking because I may have done something to make one dislike me and punishing me with anxiety that is controlling my every thought of every day. All what ifs. Am I to be punished for this. Why do I have such a obsessiveness about this guy. Why him? Do I care too much about what others think.
All day long I have intrusive thoughts that never let me rest. And this problem just adds to it. I feel like I did something wrong and I can't live like this if I did. I can't reason with myself beacuse my mind works against me.

Re: Going out of my mind

I have those same thots and run into those same situations all the time! I hate when it happens. I always blame myself--or else wonder...was it really me?? And I go round, and round for days, even a week or two sometimes. I also have OCD, and that is what causes these thot patterns.

Unfortunately, I cannot stop them from happening....and can't turn the thots off once they start. It's like they run their course and finally fade away. A lot of times I lose sleep over it b/c I cannot sleep w/my mind racing!

I'm open to anyone for suggestions too....

OCD, GAD (2008) Citalopram 40mg
Bipolar II (2010) Lamotrigine 300mg
