Good Morning, this is Kitt. I would like to suggest you see your physician and talk with him/her re these "thoughts"
CBT is another way to go. I don't feel having thoughts about stabbing someone is to be taken lightly. For some reason you are having these thoughts but try to stay in the moment. Let go of the thoughts, throw them away.
I am so sorry this is happening to you.

How are you doing? I am glad you got such a splendid response from the members. They are all simply quite wonderful. Keep talking to them.
We all care about you and we are here to support you. Hugs to you sweetie.
I agree with you. If your going to see a Pdoc you should share your thoughts. They will ask you right out if you have a plan to harm someone or not................ They won't haul you off to the locked ward.
I am glad you are feeling better.
This is a book highly recommended by many of our members.............
It is a CD audio series. You may try getting it at your library.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is based on the idea that our thoughtscause our feelings and behaviors, not external things, like people, situations,and events. The benefit of this fact is that we can change the way we think to feel / act better even if the situation does not change. If you cannot do it through therapy, here is a free web site that you can work on line at you own pace. Just click on the link and the site will pop up for you.

Good luck and know I am thinking of you.
You may ask your Doctor about the difference between the meds. Zoloft has been around a long time and Pristiq is new to the market. It always depends on how each individual responds to the med.
