Can you have an intrusive thought that scares you really bad about an intrusive thought/compulsion from the past ie harm ocd from a past harmful attempt
I believe so. Could you give me an example so I know for sure what you mean!
My original intrusive thought was suicide ocd. My compulsion was to call 911 because I falsely believed I was suicidal. Now I am having intrusive thoughts what if I call 911. Does that make sense to be a weird smaller intrusive thought that’s not exactly harm it’s weird!
Yes I have had thoughts like that before! So you’re scared you’ll call 911? Maybe you will, maybe you won’t. The thing is you can’t tell what you’ll do in the future so the only thing you can do is accept the uncertainty and move on
Ok thank u for validating my hunch I am going to bring it to treatment and work on it in exposures tomorrow! Ty
You got this!
