i think every ocd themes come in waves. sometimes the thoughts don't really bother you and sometimes it feels really real, that's just how it is but try your best not to do compulsions, it'll come and go
Mine definitely comes in waves. It really scares me that I’ve gone 4 months without coming on this app for reassurance but I still had thoughts. I understand
@Ope Did you ever have thoughts during those 4 years?
@Ope That makes me feel better. I really worry about the fact that I sometimes have thoughts even when I’m doing okay and I don’t feel the need to spend hours on reddit like I do when I’m having a flare up.
