wait i just saw that tik tok too 😭
Worst part is she was joking so like why post that at all? And the comments were making my ocd worse. AND my brain immediately latched onto it bc my indoor cat bit my hand like three months ago. This is like the third fear I’ve had unlocked thanks to tik tok 🥴
@j tik tok is honestly the worst for people with ocd i get triggered atleast once a day when i go on that app😅 it especially sets off my health obsession
For me I feel Tiktok has heightened my ocd. Whenever I see something triggering I delete it for like a week. Obviously people can’t tiptoe around our triggers, but I do find deleting the app helpful even if it’s for a day or two. Yes the intrusive thought will still be there, you won’t go down a rabbit hole that will make it way worse.
I used to delete the app but I figured it would be avoidance. So I’ve started immediately blocking people that post triggering content on purpose and I try not to spiral in the comments by reading them bc it’s just contributing the algorithm pulling more videos like that when I interact by reading the comments
Tiktok is so unhealthy for many reasons but for ocd, i got triggered and have stayed triggered from one tktok/ the comments. Its almost two years. And i have the same obsession from just one video. And while it’s obviously not their responsibility to tip toe around people. So many people make videos about conspiracies or wild things for the views. And the comments are either people being sarcastic or just being a wild as the poster because its funny to them. Its all clickbait and trying to get views. But people like us are more likely to create obsessions about it.
I didn't see the tik tok but I've been terrified a puppy gave it to my baby. It's been my ocd obsession for over a month now.
I’ve always seen it on here or in other support groups of being a. common ocd obsession I just never thought I would get it until now :(
@j That helps a little I thought it was just me...it's terrifying! I can't even look at pictures of puppies now.
