Yeeeeuuuuuppppp!!! Totally get it!!
Yep, all the time, it sucks that you can’t trust your own thought process when you have this disorder
I understand that feeling for sure. It always puts me through this endless circle of “its just OCD, it’s not true. Wait. Maybe it is true and I’m just saying its OCD to feel better about it” however, every time I get out of that circle and I’m able to think logically again, I always realize that it was for sure just my OCD. Your OCD is going to want you to stay in that spiral but the thing that helps me get out of it is challenging the OCD by saying “so what if it’s true? I will be able to cope with it and get through it.” I know it’s easier said than done and it might not work for everyone, that’s what works for me. I’m sorry you’re dealing with those thoughts.
felt like that all day
Yes:) I feel that so much. No matter how hard I choose to follow my values, or whenever I talk about how I don’t want these thoughts, my mind tells me that deep deep down these are true and I’m just convincing myself they’re not. Like @ocdliv said, once I’m out of that spiral and thinking logically, I can easily identify it as OCD, and sometimes it takes a while to get to that point. Keep going, and keep choosing what you value, because YOU deserve that. I know values can get confusing, however, keep going forward. I understand how hard this is. I understand how confusing and difficult and CONVINCING this is. But remember that you can do this. Give yourself that compassion 💓💓
This spiral has been going 2 months for me. When does it stop?
Yeah....it does 😔
