Obsessive thinking

I keep getting out of control thinking. It happens most often when I am exercising but also in bed and just doing day-to-day stuff.

The thoughts usually take the form of "you need to tell them what you did" and "why did you do it". I don't know what I did or who to tell but the thoughts are very persistant.

I told my psychiatrist today and he wanted to up my haloperidol but I don't like the side effects so refused.

Does anyone else get these kind of obsessive thoughts?

Intrusive thoughts- not sure if they count as obsessive but they were very distressing. But about something else.

I didn't, couldn't cope with normal life, found it highly distressing- because of the nature of the intrusive thoughts. I was a mental wreck and didn't use healthy coping strategies, because they didn't work for me, not that I'm saying you should do what I did.

But you're still around so something must have worked, right?

I want to work out tomorrow but I'm scared of the thoughts.

The possibility of going to med school for grad entry, if that doesn't work out, I can't see myself coping. The only thing keeping me together is that things are going in the right direction to make this a possibility. Literally this one sole ambition in life keeps me alive, other then that I don't have any other reasons why I'm still here. I don't have friends or family and have anhedonia. I'm not depressed. Just have to live with a BPD brain,that's a hard existence.
