O.k todays post is something someone wanted me to post on.I do have this page on my main site that explains certain things but I will try and explain more here.I hope there is something there for people to relate to.Paul For more information and help, visit my main site For more information about my book ‘At last a life’ visit entry was posted on Sunday, February 24th, 2008 at pm and is filed under Obsessive thoughts. a young woman in San Francisco, met a man—call him John—on the dating site OKCupid.

The way to rid yourself of them is to allow them to be there, not to rid yourself of them, worry why you have them.The original question was……Paul, could you please do a post regarding obsessive thought cycles.Mine are fear of dying, fear of hurting someone physically or sexually, all the usual, fear of self harm/suicide, ITS CRIPPLING MATE and my last symptom to go.I no longer bothered or cared what thoughts came, it did not matter, let my excess adrenalin make me think this way at times, its fine, was my attitude.Again it takes a little time, so don’t think as soon as you give the thoughts time and space they will disappear, have the attitude of ‘It does not matter if they are there or not’ that is always your goal.
