Does anyone else ever feel like you’re being a fraud by saying “it’s just ocd” when getting intrusive thoughts/memories ? Always makes me feel like I’m trying to get away with a bad action ..:

Yea, at one point I thought "what if I'm using ocd as an excuse to think bad things?" But I think it's normal to feel like you're lying to yourself

Yes I am struggling with this right now. I think I have false memory ocd but worry it's real memories that I am using my ocd to justify. Trying to incorporate this as an exposure without reassuring myself that it is ocd.. but don't know how well it's working or if that's the best way to deal with it. Wishing everyone here strength in coping with this.

Yes I don’t even say that anymore because my brain goes “No liar this is true you like these thoughts it’s only a matter of time until you have to act on them”
