    I Hate Intrusive Thoughts

    I can't control them. I have to consciously think the opposite. It is really exhausting. If I could just shut them off I would have a lot more peace. I hate involuntary thoughts. They are always negative.

    Whenever I'm trying to sleep, my mind decides to work in overdrive. I think about stupid things that don't make sense and it makes me so tired! I swear only R.Kelly gets me.

    Sometimes I am often to deep in my own head. I make up things that don't exist or that I perceive that isn't real.
