He tells me that he thinks about a lot of bad things on a regular basis and he can not control them. I want to know if there is something that I can do to help him besides just listening to him. I am worried about him.
I'd be worried more about the bad thoughts becoming actions.I think you need to leave this relationship,I don't think you could help him at all,he needs to see a therapist or doctor.
Take him to the nearest place for mental help. Before you wake up... or should i say don't wake up one morning. Sorry, but i know about mental health and i just know where it could lead. If he's being forthcoming and honest with you go on and take that l.as a cry for help and take him to see someone before he starts acting on those bad thoughts. Wish you both the best of luck.
Before your bf make it practical, you take him to a good psychiatrist, i hope it will be cured. And best wishes for eradicating ur bf's bad thoughts and make him good.
So long your boy friend's thoughts are not to hurt anyone or hurt self or do anything illegal against Society at large, thoughts can not be termed bad. He may have Sexual thoughts which you may brand bad. Again so long these fantasies do not involve any violence or force against anyone leave him alone.
if the bad thots are about sex , thn i wud say most guys do have sexual fantasies. it is just that ur bf is sharing his fantasies with u. if ur comfortable than make som of his fantasies a reality. in the bargain both of u wud enjoy,
but in case his bad thots r related to violence then beware, take him to a doc as soon as possible.
Just listen n try to put some good thoughts in his mind!
