I've never said that to anyone, and highly doubt I ever will, but since you don't know me here, I thought I'd aks you, do you think I"m abnormal? I'm imagining myself in the worst situations: like having a cancer, being a druggie, commiting suicide, being raped... I don't want it to happen, but I"m thinking about it... imagining what would people from my surrounding do... I hate it, but those thoughts just come to me!!! Is there something wrong with me...?

No, not at all.

Everyone has moments where their imagination goes overtime - I know I do, especially when I'm suffering with insomnia.

I guess it proves you have good self-awareness and know what you don't want to become.

Try not to dwell on thoughts like that, and you'll be fine.

You are perfectly normal. I've done the same thing; but it's not a good thing, although it IS normal.

Just wanted to say: if you can't control these thoughts at all and they're stopping you from getting on with your life, it could be a sign of an anxiety disorder or clinical depression or something like that. In that case, you should talk to your doctor, who should be able to help (anxiety and depression are pretty common and pretty treatable - you'll find lots of people on the boards here who have them or have had them at some point).

I don't know if they're stoping my life... I mean, I usually don't control them, but I've never wondered what's their inpact on my life... I mean, I'm always nervous, simple things can drive me crazy and I almost incessant feel some kind of fear inside of me, but I can't tell where does it come from, and I think I've had it even before those thoghts started coming to me.

Wow, the same thing happens to me! Usually it's when I'm driving, for example, and I totally imagine a horrible crash with the car flipping over and everyone dying...or if I'm on the El train, I imagine it running off the track, again with the dying...I haven't a clue if this is "normal", but I do know that I experience these thoughts (uncontrollable, like, I don't think it on purpose) when I'm under a lot of stress or anxiety in life. Perhaps you can talk to a counselor or someone? You may even want to mention something to a parent or a good friend - if they care about you, they shouldn't think that you're crazy. (although...I told my mom about this and she was like, "oh honey, it's normal to be worried about car accidents, keeps ya on your toes" which wasn't exactly the issue. Heh.) Good luck!

That's good to know I"m not the only one... And I doubt I'll ever get the courage to tell anyone... I'm too scared they will hate me... But now that I know it's probably nothing wrong, I think I can handle Thank you Frog (sorry, don't know your name), you really helped me

i've heard a thing about people who think themselves into terrible situations. Believe me it is normal and you know that you don't want to really be in those situations but maybe your curiosity gets a hold of you, and sometimes it is good to think like that, because then you could feel a little fear and reality of tht and further know how someone who has been in that situations feels.
