    Is this really just a scary thought?

    Had a bit of rough time with anxiety lately and one thought that sticks is ‘What if i go mad can’t cope and kill my self” it scares the absolute crap out of me. I have no desire to do it. I love life and perhaps that’s why it scares me so much. Then just today came across a post on Facebook about a guy i grew up with who died, I know the guy had a drug problem but that sent my mind into over drive, what if he took his own life and the what if what if went on and on.

    Can someone reassure me I am normal?

    Totally normal, yep. Scary thoughts happen.

    This is totally anxiety sitting on your shoulder, whispering in your ear. You have this thought and it triggers anxiety....typical intrusive thoughts. The fact that the thought of doing it terrifies you, must tell you that it's your anxiety talking.
    try your best to ignore the thought when it arises and carry on doing whatever you are doing. Your brain will eventually get bored with it.
