It is very common for OCD to change themes. OCD wants to hold on at all costs.
Yeah it feels like it’s changing pretty quick which is what threw me off.
Yeah I started on HOCD then POCD then Harm Ocd then back to POCD then health ocd then Suicide ocd now Existential/ Death anxiety Ocd, it means your gettin better and you ain’t worried about it so it hops onto the next one
That’s terrible. This is a new thing for me, just started a few months ago and I’m learning a lot in regards to exposure. But I’m wondering if it ever just kind of fizzles out for good
Not looking for reassurance. But most podcasts and things I’ve listened to didn’t really mention it always latching on to something else. There is something therapeutic about it switching because it makes me realize all the more that it’s all ocd. Especially when it’s over something super ridiculous
@mattylee Yes it can ,it goes away but you can’t react badly to any negative thought that’s how it gets you
I've been alternating between 3 different OCD themes Nonstop for the past two weeks. Sometimes OCD just goes into overdrive depending on how stressed out or anxious you are. And yeah, there have been times where after I feel a theme is ending I start to worry about what my OCD will latch onto next.
Yup!!! Seemed like the minute I got over my HOCD and felt confident in myself, POCD started. And I literally never would’ve though POCD would get ahold of me but it did unfortunately
