I don’t think it’s a form of reassurance, I think it helps us to understand the disorder much better atleast that’s what it does for me. I like listening to YouTube videos about OCD.
Thanks for sharing! I always feel like maybe I don’t actually have OCD until I listen and I’m like wow.. this is exactly how I feel lol
I do this alot! But I agree I think it helps to gain knowledge
There is a huge difference between seeking reassurance and educating yourself about OCD. Also, it is very common for people with OCD to doubt they have it. It's something pretty much everyone with OCD deals with. OCD is called the Doubting disease for a reason
do you maybe have any recommendations? :)
Chrissie Hodges on YT is great!!
@tia111 sweet! I'll check them out!
Also check out OCD Stories and All the Hard Things by Jenna Overbaugh. Jenna is a NOCD therapist and also has OCD herself. Those are both podcasts I have found really helpful. OCD Stories is hosted by Stuart Ralph. He interviews OCD experts and therapists as well as ordinary people with OCD
Which ones are you listening to? I might want to listen!
I like the ocd stories podcast and Nathan Peterson’s videos on YouTube
