I can't totally relate with what you're saying, but I'll share my experience and maybe this will help.

I'm early 20's, and have had several nice relationships. I am a non-violent person by nature, can't stand violence as a matter of fact. But frequently I get these violent thoughts that stream through my thoughts, most of the times it's random but still catches me by suprise.
I don't want to go into the details, but it's usually about people I know. This mixed with occasional depression at times makes me wonder too, if I'm really as sane as I think I am. Or as in control as I think I am.

But, twenty some years on this earth and never had a problem with these things affecting my daily life or relationships. I deal with them as they come, in waves usually, and shrug them off as some strange primordial brain flux, or something.

The point is: You're not alone (well, I can't relate with the animal violence thing) and I think you'll be fine.

Thanks for the reply. I guess that is a good point. None of these symptoms have ever affected my daily life (besides the depression, but that isn't what I was worried about). I really am embarrassed about the whole animal thing, and I never think about things like that anymore, or since I was very young. I don't imagine many people are going to sympathize with that  :tongue:.

Worrying about whether or not your crazy leads you down a bad road. Ignore that stuff, recognize it as just stupid irrational thought, and keep on going.

Well said.  :thumbup:  I only feel crazy when I start freaking out about whether or not I am.

If you don't have immediate symptoms, you are probably fine. However, you might benefit from talking to a therapist about it just to resolve it for good and get some peace of mind

In addition to all that has been said,

It is perfectly normal to question your sanity

It is a natural way of keeping your mind in check

Beware of those who never question themselves :smile:
