Sometimes I have intrusive thoughts, just thoughts not impulses. Apparently lots of people do.
It's when I'm under stress, err, like first dates.
I have imagined stabbing the girl, or god even worse. I once imagined burning her eye with a lighter, gee, I must have really liked her to be that stressed out.
I was telling the psychologist about this last week. And then the next day I chanced on a cure for it. If I imagine myself as the powerless person (child / woman) in the exchange, a calm comes over me.
I guess I can ask the psychologist what this all means on Wednesday at 4 o'clock.
