Is it normal that i think about running into moving cars?

Often when I'm walking on the side path, I vision myself running infront of a moving vehicle and think if I would die from it. Today I had a small urge to do it but I was never going to do it. Is this normal I'm having these thoughts?

  • I think it's common for people to think about the 'what if' but actually acting on it is not normal. Don't do it. You'll waste other people's precious time having to clean up your mess on the road.

  • Those are intrusive thoughts and can actually be related to ocd amongst other things. If they are becoming compulsion and you feel drawn to really doing it then you should speak to a doctor about this.

    • Agreed. OP if you feel this enough to make an IIN post about it I think it’s worth looking up OCD and seeing if it resonates. Maybe it won’t, but better safe than sorry.

  • If it’s just an intrusive thought and you’re not actually suicidal then it’s normal.
