aluminum foil works for me. Seriously though, it's just an idea. When things aren't right upstairs, the process by which thoughts originate is also affected.

Strange impulses and uncomfortable ideas tend to be more frequent. While you can't stop these thoughts from dropping by, there is another part of your

brain that has the authority to disregard those thoughts and impulses as improper. Become more "spock like" and use your intellect.

bro nobody is controling your thoughts lol . I know how it feels when a thought doesnt let you go though
It's hard how can I possibly let go of these thoughts? It's a bit like solispism no proof so I worry it's true?

The issue I have is if there was no free will which can't be proven and things are all planned out is that not just the same as being controlled I mean could thoughts exist independently in such a society I can't figure that one out

I can't seem to rid this idea that my thoughts are not my own though?

I can't get this idea out my head that someone or something controls my thoughts and I'm a robot?
Those seem like symptoms of a psychosis. The symptoms of depersonalisation and derealisation -- which are feelings of unreality, for example -- are similar to the symptoms of psychosis. Worst case scenario, you might have schizophrenia. You should talk about this to a doctor as soon as possible as one's symptoms tend to worsen the more one keeps postponing help. Good luck!

I had a day where I also thought something controls my mind

it CAN be psychosis but it is also possible to be a mix of dp/dr + anxiety + ocd or something . I am no doc though

bro nobody is controling your mind . try to ignore the thought .

what antipsychotic do you take ?

Risperidone.

I thought also that if god did control my mind and everybody else we would effectively all be one person chatting to ourself a same ideas as Solipsism so it's not really ideal is it?

I hate when people say psychosis as that sets me off on another worry I have that and I worry all day. Also I'm sure psychosis You are generally unaware you are in it.

How did you get over the worry people are controlling your mind? I found with some reading of forums that it is a more common thought than I first imagined and people with dp and ocd do wonder it.

it would be ideal in the sense that since god is our creator and wants the best for us we would live a life that is good for us . but as I said god doesnt control us . he gave us free will and we all have our own personality

if you are psychotic you are psychotic . dont be scared of it . I was so scared of being psychotic that I suffered a panic attack which lasted several hours .....like I was in a state of panic again and again for several hours because I thought I am going crazy . I called my physician who is still a young dude and we both are cool with each other and the secretary knows that and she also likes me and my mom so that helped me to get to see the doc at the same day . when I went to him I couldnt sit and had to walk around in front of him up and down .....he gave me half an ativan which calmed me down a little . and said to me I have to go to the psychiatric emergency

after a few days when the ativan was out of my body I had the worst time in my whole life ....I had horrible intrusive thoughts and one day I thought that my mind is controlled by someone who wants me to do some bad things which almost brought me to kill myself

I took antipsychotics for a few months . now I dont take antipsychotics anymore since 2-3 months

dont be scared of being psychotic bro . there are many people on earth suffering from psychosis . be happy that you dont hallucinate or hear voices . but I am not even scared of that anymore . whatever happens happens . there are so many meds that can help after all ....

the important thing is to know that you are just thinking something that doesnt make any sense . I know it is hard when you are right in the middle of it where logic doesnt work but just try to think logically again and again . one day you will laugh about it

in the past I had several weird thoughts that made me obsessed and anxious ....years later I am laughing about them lmao

as a child for example when I was like 7-8 or so ? or maybe 9-10 I dont remember fully .....I thought that I might be the reincarnation of elvis presley xD I was scared that I could be elvis presley . I also was scared to become an old man .....

one day in a martial arts class when I was like 14-16 or so when we stood in line in front of our teacher I thought suddenly in my head "what if they teach us how to throw fireballs once I get to the black belt ? .....I dont think I can handle the responsibilty ! " and I got a little scared ...hahahahhahahah wtf

how stupid is that ? it's just fucking ridiculous and I know it now . just say "fuck you" to these thoughts .

nobody is controling your mind

When my ocd isn’t worrying about germs it switches to these existence worries. Basically for months it was Solipsim and then my mind got bored and went into the worry my mind is controlled or I just worry life is a dream or I don’t exist or my life is a lie? It seems awful to have these thoughts how can I distract myself from these unhelpful thoughts? I worry about fate and destiny and worry why things happen?

I think exercise would be good

also always apply logic . you have to accept that those thoughts/worries are unrealistic and wrong

life being a dream ....your mind being controlled ....what a bunch of nonsense

I don’t think it’s psychosis but I’m not doc. It sounds like you have ocd with anxiety and dpdr like psyborg said. If the thought generally starts with “what if” I know it’s anxiety and my ocd is starting. I’ve had similar thoughts. Distract.

To preface with this: I remember being very scared that I was developing Schizophrenia when I first developed DP, so I don't mean to alarm anyone.

"Do you think that your thoughts might be controlled by an outside entity," is a psychosis screening question. According to the docs, psychosis involves having these bizarre thoughts pertaining to things such as mind control and believing they aren't a manifestation of an abnormal mental state. If you can realize that there is no concrete basis to believe your mind is being controlled, then you still have sanity.

What constitutes a bizarre thought depends on the person's culture. Some cultures might believe in ghosts who control people's minds, in which case that wouldn't be a bizarre thought.
I was probably on the edge on psychosis . I thought that a outside power wants me to do something . it was basically a mix of ocd and psychosis ?

I somehow knew that it cant be but on the other hand it felt real . hm ....

I had been feeling better for a month or so but lately I've googled the free will questions and the existance and mind controlled stuff and if I am a robot and I feel bad again.

I feel it's a constant battle to bash these thoughts away? Is there a cure?

I have this. It's NOT psychosis. Why do you feel like someone is controlling you? Because with DP, you lose your sense of self, the sense of CONTROL over yourself. You feel life an automaton, a robot, a puppet. You have no free will. All this makes you FEEL as if someone is controlling you which should be treated as just that, a feeling. And btw, a psychotic person can't distinguish between what's real and what's not. While with dp/dr, you can and you're aware of the whole thing.

Anxiety is what fuels your thoughts. I know it's hard but try to focus outward instead of inward. I find forcing myself to engage in activities and esp socializing help in my case.
