      Tonight is really bad for intrusive thoughts. I want them to go away but how?

        Try not to react to them nor ruminate on them.

          If I could give you any advice it would be find a distraction or an interest easier said than done try and put the thoughts to the back of your mind not fully believe me they are just thoughts.  I have been paralysed in the past with them myself and the brief moments of reprieve help

          don’t try and force anything just keep one comforting thought in your mind someone loves you etc

          it will pass

            <p style=”text-align: left;”>refugioochs, my thoughts are really bad all the time, but especially at night! I know it is easier said than done, but don’t dwell on them.</p>
            I have thoughts and voices telling me to do things, it is a constant battle!
