I suffer from intrusive thoughts and I never seem to be able to get rid of them 100%, they always lurk there in the background even though they have decreased a little bit. I would love for them to leave my life completely as it puts such a block on my confidence and happiness. I want to live my life in a certain way and be free but these thoughts stop me from being fully free. All I want is to be free of them that's it so I can get on with my life. I also have depression and low mood but I'd be happy to deal with just that on its own in the absence of any intrusive thoughts because then all I would be able to watch videos, go on walks and play sport etc. whilst being able to relax and enjoy them. I might even feel some positivity if I were able to be free of these intrusive thoughts. I cannot emphasise just how much of a burden they are on me, all I want is not to suffer from them again. If I did get free of them, I could lead a semi-normal life, still one which was held back because of depression and my lack of interest in activities but one where I could relax and just deal with having depression, not depression and intrusive thoughts which is too much for me to handle.
How can I get free of them for good?
