> For example, I used to get the intrusive fear that I ran over someone, or left my dog in the car. I knew that of course I didn't run over anyone or leave the dog in the car, but I felt compelled to check to make certain. The thoughts were intrusive. I didn't consider them to mesh well with my actual knowledge and beliefs.

There is a good essay, maybe in the NYT under children and mental illness. Father of schizophrenic girl began having similar thoughts (running over people) triggered, they thought, by ptsd related stress. He was unable to drive for a period of time. He received good treatment and resumed normal activities.

This entire thread has been quite informative.


MDD currently controlled. C-ptsd and comorbid health concerns. Chronic fatigue.
