I've thought about not feeding the cats, or letting them (a bunch of house cats) loose to fend for themselves.
In meetings, I'll sometimes make an unpleasant observation about someone's appearance or behavior and then I'll get an urge to speak of it out loud, or even yell it.
Or if I'm sexually attracted to a person I'm meeting with, I'll get an urge to say or do something about it.
Sometimes I think about taking off all my clothes at work.
These thoughts are basically my mind wondering "what would happen if I ... ?" and then playing it all out.
Me, too! Especially the yelling things out! I've wanted to slap people in meeting, too, just to see what would happen.
And all of these things only occur when I'm anxious or stressed.
