I am becoming desperate my thoughts won't go,they are so strange I feel like I'm going to start making sounds like animals... really worried that my mind is broken
I'm not a dr or a psych but sounds like anxiety. Many of us deal with intrusive thoughts that are strange and hard to get rid of. Try to remember they are just thoughts and they don't control you. You can control your thoughts. Try to distract yourself read, clean, tv, puzzles, talk to friends etc... Have you seen the dr? Your mind is not broken just stuck in a loop of anxiety Medication can help break that cycle. Talking to a therapist helps a lot too.
I had absolutely insane nightmares after quitting Zoloft for 5 or six years (we did not agree with each other). I actually ended up exhausted as I was too scared to sleep.
At some stage you need to realise that a label does not define who you are. Intrusive thoughts are problematic as they seem kind of rational in a twisted way to me. The important thing to me is knowing that each 'phase' will last a finite amount of time. I have to believe that.
