hey, the best stuff is a distraction, and prayer, and knowing that those thoughts are not going to take over your mind. when they come, jump up and yell or go jogging, do somthing that takes a burst of energy, get angry my friend! run hard like there is no tommorow, or even go for a walk if you cant run. visit friends even
Ive been on every medication possible since 14 and to be honest with most of the drugs are evil. I still take some meds but I have learned/am learning to let them come and go as quickly as possible. Change the subject in your brain if possible, if not short term wise valium, should provide instant releif.
I take lexapro and zoloft. Trying to move in one direction. It's so hard to tell if the medication is the issue, or something going on in life. I'm not thinking that the lexapro is working right now. Keep workign on it because no one knows what works for you like you.
I know this thread is old but I thought I might put my two cents in anyway. I take topamax and it does help a lot with the intrusive/obsessive thoughts even though kind of gives me the stupids. It kind of turns your brain off in a way, a good way. I take it as a mood stabilizer and it works wonders for me.. Hope that helps.
I have a thought about something someone said to me a year ago or longer, and I still feel sad that they said it and wonder if it is real or not and can't confront them. I want to get rid of the thought, and don't want obsessive thoughts to always be in my head. also music sticks in my head, and I feel worried
