RE: Bad thoughts during heavy squats
(humble brag) It's been years since I remember that feeling, but I do understand what you mean. Good suggestions have been given, mine is to make sure you have strong core muscles, it sounds like you might not. Core is lower back and abs. Remember to draw in a full breath of air and then tighten abs completely. This has the effect of a natural weightlifting belt to stabilize your core. In addition, press up with your arms like you wanted to lift the weight off your shoulders. Tight core (air in, flexed abs) and pushing against the weight will help a lot.

250lbs at your weight is decent. This is where technique is needed and good form. Study your form. Train different, go lighter, add a couple of heavy squats once in a while. Also work on deep squats to get stronger in the bottom.
