As people here will know, one of the recurring problems which has brought me here over the past few years is a tendency towards obsessive/intrusive thoughts, which has caused me some considerable distress. I had a bout of it recently which lasted a few months on and off. I tried to distract myself and tell myself it would stop, and this didn't seem to work for very long, but it seems to be stopping on its own now. I'm still getting a bit of it, but it's not going round in my head every waking moment. I've noticed these things seem to start very suddenly and stop just as suddenly, and I'm not entirely sure why. Might it be just because I was no longer obsessing over trying to make it stop? Should I talk to the counsellor about this?
