Before I started taking meds I would have visions. In them I would see myself hurting or killing someone. They always happened when I had something in my hand that could be used like a knife or a hammer.

Now I take risperdal and the visions are gone but I still have disturbing thoughts and urges. Today at work there was a man standing near me and I had a screwdriver in my hand and I got the urge to stab him in the side with it. A moment later I was horrified that I had even thought of it.

I have never been a violent person but this scares me.

That's weird but neat, since i'm so fascinated by these kinds of things. I have those thoughts but am not horrified by them

I get those sorts of weird urges aswell sometimes, I do not know what you can do about them but if you are a danger to someone else or your self maybe you will need something to stop this before it goes too far and you really hurt someone.
