This is gonna sound weird..
anyways
When I'm driving say I'm on a 1 way road, like 1 car can travel north and u have another one coming towards u south, I think that's called a 1 way, anyways
When I'm on roads like that, say the car is 80 yards from me coming towards me
For some reason
I start thinking I'm purposely gonna crash into this car, I know I'm not gonna ever do it, it's like my mind is like I know I would never want to do that, then I start thinking that and I feel like the car 80 yards from me can sense that like ima crash into it or something
Idk it's weird..
I would never do that, but do u think that car can sense what I'm thinking? Like can u sense this dude is thinking about crashing into me even tho I would never do that
I'm asking if this is paranoia or anxiety or what
Ima try some Xanax and see if it stops that weird thinking, idk, that's just 1 of my few other weird problems.. just being at work for 4-6 hours being around people and thinking these things just beat me up inside, if I didn't have these problems I could work for 48 hours, but since I'm always fucking myself up in my head, 4 hours of work is mentally exhausting, it's killer
Anyways.. I wish someone could tell me how to face these prOblems.. I don't want to try medicine, I have tried a lot, I think if I could find someway to conquer these things in my head I would be okay
Anyways
Any suggestions or anything would really help
Thanks guys

Are you asking if the car itself can sense what you are thinking, or if the person driving the car can sense what you are thinking?

The person in the car, and it’s like other things to, like this person was laying on the ground and like I felt something in my foot to like kick them in the head and of course I didn’t but the person moved as if like they could sense I was feeling to do that? I would never do that but my mind is weird, if I think of something bad, I feel like all my mind wants to do is think about that, like if I’m driving the worse thing I can think of is running into a car and I non stop think about that, idk it’s so weird.. and bullshit, I feel like I analyze so much it’s made me this bad, idk any help would be cool.. have u done anything that has made u feel better? Also u know of anything to make u feel more attached? I feel like when I speak it’s like I just have to fake everything I’m saying, like I feel like nothing I say comes from my heart.. idk man.. some bullshit

I've heard people talk about these kind of thoughts, so you are not alone. I remember a mum saying she would be driving with her kids and would have the thought of deliberately driving into a ditch. Unsurprisingly she was wracked with guilt because she would never do anything to harm her kids. I imagine they come from being in an over-anxious state and your mind flagging potential warnings and dangers, including antisocial or destructive actions. Like you said, it doesn't mean you want to do those things, in fact it maybe the opposite, which is why they are so alarming.

my brother is mentally healthy but he also had the feeling that people can read his minds for a while when he was a teenager

These are intrusive thoughts!

I've had plenty of those come about through anxiety but even people without can suffer from intrusive thoughts. The difference with those that have anxiety is that we view them as something exclusive to us. As if the thoughts of merging into oncoming traffic is somehow a telling sign that we're going psychotic. They're actually very normal thoughts and, hey, you said it yourself. You would never actually jerk the steering wheel. However, the important thing is not to try and push these thoughts away. The more you try to ignore them, the more they'll stick around.

Just know that these are perfectly common thoughts that happen to everyday people. You won't ever jerk the steering wheel, believe me. I'd suggest laughing at the thoughts; that's what helped me when I suffered from them.

I also have intrusive thoughts and I dont think that any of you have the same level of intrusive thoughts as I do . if I would tell them you would fall off your chair . they are extremely disturbing and bother me very much . I hate it . but I dont have many these days
