Something that definitely requires the attention of your GP.

You need to sleep well, eat well, make sure you're hydrated, exercise, and do something you enjoy. A lack of any of those needs can cause thoughts like that, and they may go away when all of those needs are filled.

If it carries on after you've done the above for a couple of days, then you should start looking into your mental health.

Conditions like depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, and trauma disorders like PTSD, DID, etc have disorganised /disruptive thoughts like that as symptoms, so look into those for other symptoms you may have, then if you do, think about speaking to your GP as Angel said for resources and to figure out what to do next.

Make sure your needs are filled first.

seek medical advice.

sounds like a lack of sleep and lots of other things combined are making you feel this way. best to go see your GP and sort it out.

I don't really have an experience in thoughts that make u feel wierd, but I just wanted to ask u were u in some medications lately , medicines that works similar to a sedative,its just that one day I was like super sick and I was asked to take paracetamol with a 8 hour gap I ate one on morning and the other one after 6 hours. things were so crazy after that I started hallucinating after 35mins I guess it started like this I was sleeping and I was dreaming. in my dream I was in a jungle and I was simply walking and i saw something moving In a dark place suddenly i woke up and it felt so real I thought it was real but it did felt like my room was a jungle and u know what I did I started searching under my bed and my whole room to find the thing that was moving in the dark. then I felt tired and I went to sleep again. the next day when I woke up I started laughing for the wierd thing I did I mean it it was a really weird experience. that's the reason why I asked if you've been on some medication there are chances u could have wierd thoughts it's not always meds if u haven't slept well for like 3 days or somethin u could feel weird being tired and stressed

Can relate. I sometimes feel like I'm watching my own head running, and it's my own thoughts fighting against thoughts I don't want but they are there and won't go away and can't control them. They aren't very nice thoughts.

You don't actually have to see your GP, you can get a telephone appointment.

You don't know that, they could have some useful insight.

The same happened to me 2 years ago. I suggest going to the doctor while you’re still experiencing it. I don’t experience the symptoms anymore but I definitely don’t feel the same at all. I went to the doctor a few months ago and nothing was done, I was just looked at like I was crazy because I didn’t know how to explain it because it had already passed. So I didn’t have much to offer the doctor.

It could be a mixture of stress, anxiety and a lack of sleep (I remember you mentioned anxiety and insomnia in one of my threads) it could also just be a side effect if you’re on any meds.

Yeah, I get that a lot. Like the thoughts in my head have been placed there and aren't mine. They're usually really horrible and not at all typical of me. What I usually try to do is track back where the thought came from. For instance if I see a black car and think black cars are dangerous, I know it's more likely to be my thought becauase I saw the black car. If it's "kill yourself" out of nowhere I know it's less likely to be me both because of the tense and the fact it came out of nowhere. This might help you know which thoughts to entertain and which to ignore.

I suspect this was more likely to be due to you being unwell than taking paracetamol, tbh.

But you have a diagnosis though, don't you?

OP, I really think you should see someone about this.
