It's possible with obsessive compulsive disorder. In fact people can develop a fear of the intrusive thoughts.

"The Boy Who Couldn't Stop Washing: The Experience and Treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder"

"Tormenting Thoughts and Secret Rituals : The Hidden Epidemic of Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder"

One of these books, I can't recall which, has a good description of that sort of OCD.

Your doctor is right. Medications of the sort you recently quit taking are very good for that type of thoughts. So are some forms of therapy, cognitive behavior therapy seems to be the first line therapy for it.
