I once had a boss that I had conflicts with.
I had problems going to sleep because I couldn't stop thing about the various things he had done.

My solution: Imagining having gay sex with my boss.
I'm not gay and even if I were I wouldn't find him physically attractive.

So every time thoughts about him intruded into my mind I would think about sex with him, get repulsed, and not think of him.

Yeah I quit that job.

"Unwanted thoughts." That brings back the old personal devil/angel model.

Try it hard enough, for long enough, and get increasingly bothered by failing to succeed? Congrats, you now have either OCD or an anxiety disorder.

85% of my thoughts are unwanted. What the he'll would I do with all that extra time?

Yeah, it's called PTSD.  You should try it, it works great.  Well worth it.

I had a boss once that I had no particular feelings about.  He was a decent guy.  So I started having sex dreams about him.  Not just a little sex--the real graphic dreams like a  porn movie.  I wasn't attracted to him.  I must have just been horny or something.  Three nights in a row that happened.
It was just very weird.
