Why do I think about something and then feel it happening?

I know that it sounds ridiculous and I, in no way, wish that anything like this were to happen to me but I know I shouldn't have these thoughts. if I'm cutting an onion (or something), I get an image in my head and a weird sensation like I accidentally cut myself. same thing with scissors, razor blades or other sharp objects. I suppose it can almost be compared to the feeling you get when you think about nails on a chalkboard but I mentioned this to my husband and he just tells me that I'm crazy and need help. I used to be suicidal when I was a teenager but have since been in control of my life and have zero desire for that. my father just killed himself a few months ago but I've felt these 'sensations' for years and I was raised by his mother, not him. There is no logical reason for me to feel like this and nothing in particular sets it off and I don't feel it every time I see the objects. I haven't noticed a pattern of anxiety to associate with it although I am always anxious and have self diagnosed as having borderline personality disorder and possibly a low level ocpd. Please help me stop thinking this way

You didn't tell us how your dad suicided nor your age when this happened. Anyway this may have put the suicidal idea and thoughts about cutting in your mind, but it's became unconscious for you. It could be too, that this event (about your dad), generated the anxiety you feel nowadays. Do a work on yourself with a psychoanalyst. He /her will help you to remove the cause(s) of the symptoms you described us on here. Then they stop.

Psychoanalysis is recommended for the cure the symptoms you have, because from what you said, their causes are hidden in your unconscious and only Psychoanalysts deal with it and the subconscious.



Ps: if money is a problem, you need to know that most psychoanalysts adapt their prices in accordance with the income of people. Also think that if the first ones you found don't do that, you are totally free to search another who do it.
