I think it's a little bit of both. They randomly pop up, but then you remember your experience with it so later you tend to bring it up. BUTTTT that's my opinion
So it plays round and round in your head?
For me it pops on my head but then I get confused if I thought of it first or if it was intrusive and panic
Sometimes I think it’s just habits but I’m No doctor
You do not produce thoughts. Thoughts happen to you. Don’t believe me? Sit down and don’t do anything. Just observe what’s going on in your brain. Do thoughts come up? If yes, then you can see that thoughts are not ours to control. The only thing to control is how we react to those thoughts.
Good one Sasha yres… if I’m watching a game? My thoughts are if the game etc , si yes good point
So even if you think something stupid it’s not you just your brain
Most of the time, my intrusive thoughts pop in my head. Sometimes at the most random times. But my brain is never quiet. Constantly racing and a seemingly endless stream of what ifs.
Same and being a new mom Ive gotten myself into a dysfunctional place with these thoughts.
Yeah that’s how mine is, makes up what it’s or stuff could happen turns it into anxiety and thoughts like the oppposiyr as if I don’t care which is the furthest from the truth
