Thanks for all the replies!
I have a morbid imagination and its a compulsion,
I can't seem to stop thinking weird, morbid thoughts or having "daydreams".
If I'm getting in an elevator and it jerks or makes a noise, my brain immediately pictures the cable breaking and everyone crashing to their deaths.
At night if I can't fall asleep my mind goes crazy and I imagine really extreme scenarios. Zombie attacks, being robbed (not that extreme), end of the world stuff.
This happens in situations that could be potentially dangerous but most likely not and the chances of the perceived danger is so minimal that it wouldn't even be a warning on a label, ya know, the do not drink on the bottle of bleach kind of extreme.
I had never told anyone this and told my dh this a few weeks ago and he thinks I'm so weird. I function like a normal person and I let my child be free but sometimes I cringe at the thought of what could happen. I don't stop myself from doing things because of my "visions" sometimes, I might go about things differently but I haven't changed my life because I know these thoughts are irrational.
So, anyone else?
