Hi Newbie12! Thank you so much for reaching out on here. I have DEFINITELY experienced what you’re going through. It is so frustrating, exhausting, and time consuming. Have you brought this up with your therapist? I am certain that they will have some good tools for this. You won’t always feel this way, I can promise you that! The more you practice, the less OCD will have a hold on your brain. You’ve got this—don’t give up!
Hi Kayla Nicole! Thanks for the reply. I started therapy for the first time as of 2 months ago for anxiety and right away after talking like this to my therapist she recognize this as OCD. I have brought it up with my therapist, we meet once a week and it seems every week it’s a new “mistake” or “memory” that has come up. I’m just really stuck on one of those sticky things right now that my mind is telling me I must confess .. Any tools you can share would be helpful. I don’t want to give up but it’s just so hard this week
