I have Obsessive thoughts thats i may lose control and freak out. That i may hurt people. Its more of a freak out that i have become so crazy that i would some day do something like this.

I now think my DP/DR and panic and anxiety are moving in to schizophrenia.. I'm freaking out that i may forget whats right and then I'm off to the races..

I would never and have never hurt anything more than a bug in my life. I don't even like to think about where my food comes from. I have had rage but never meaningless violence.

I hate to see people even in pain...

WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME..

In the past i have had insane thoughts i may loose touch and hurt people or my self. Like i say its more of a fear of losing control and acting out, more than the fear that i actually will do it.

Have any of you had feelings like this?

I haven't, but if you really believe there's an actual possibility of your doing something bad to yourself or others, I would go to an emergency room immediately.

In other words, if you think you are going to succumb to these urges or fears or whatever you want to call them, take yourself to a place in which you can be protected and kept from doing anything you will later regret.

It's really your call; if you think you might really do something, get to a hospital post haste.

Hey spaceplexx..what you are describing sounds a lot like ocd....a very common obsession for those of us with ocd is that we will lose control and hurt someone or ourselves, even those, especially those, closest to us. I remember one of the first times i had that thought and it scared the crap out of me. When this is ocd, we are afraid we will hurt someone, and as much as I've doubted it, i think that's where the difference between us and those who really WANT to hurt someone.

forgot to end the sentance correctly...should read that's where the difference between us and those who really want to/will hurt someone lies.

Hey I had this - yes had! Its all part of ocd/anxiety/dp/dr spectrum. Its not fun, its hell. But guess what? You can get rid of it. I know when you get these thoughts you feel anxious, scared & crazy but tell yourself that its just a thought because of your anxiety. These thoughts don't define you. They come out of know where & you can't control them. All you can do is accept that it is part of your condition & try to concentrate on whatever you were doing.

You will never go crazy & hurt anybody - I repeat never! Its just a mind game & the more you try & have control over these thoughts the worse it will be. Let them run freely & laugh at them because deep down you know that you are just a normal person experiencing anxiety & that is all.

I dont want to say that it is common but I have heard many people on the internet with a fear of lossing control, specifically hurting someone especially one they love. I find myself very afraid of losing control, or freaking out. That is probably what I fear the most. I would doubt you were getting schizo, personally it sounds like a lot of anxiety. I know many people are scared of this condition, sometimes your mind will play tricks on you. The mind is very powerful and can make you believe you have an illness, it happens to me all the time.
