Random thoughts of particular people

Quote

I’ve been struggling with ocd for the past year and lately it’s gotten better but the themes change. I’ve quelled this to the most part but a new fear I’ve been having is, randomly someone pops into my head. Then I get scared and the typical response is why did get this thought? And so on. My question is could this be a theme? I’ll be in the middle of a train of thought and then boom my friend will pop into my head and cause anxiety. It’s normally 1-2 different people. The thoughts aren’t sexual or bad it’ll just be an image of them and that’ll spike anxiety especially in the context of whatever my thought train was. Again not sexual or anything negative. Sorry for the long post thanks for any reply.

I know this, I will remember random people from the past who I already forgot about. I don‘t know why this is happening.
