I think I have some of that and yes it sucks butt
It makes things feel like sometimes off or wrong too which sucks
Yes like I know to not keep opening back up my phone bc My brain will just think of the next thought. And it’s just you can not win with ocd unless you stay strong and accept those uncomfortable feelings.
Yeah sometimes I open up my phone and my brain will just produce this uncomfortable feeling like something isn’t just right or like the way I opened up my phone didn’t feel right or something
@lroinll5 YES exactly. Do you just ignore it or do you keep opening up your phone
@Calove No unfortunately I’ve been giving in and keep re opening my phone till it feels just right or like something isn’t wrong or whatever but I need to force myself to stop doing it and just open my phone up once and that’s it
@Calove And it sucks because I’ll open my phone and if I don’t do a compulsion sometimes it feels like the phone screens light or something has my eyes locked on it or something or idek how to describe it really but it’s annoying as heck
@lroinll5 Totally get that. Some of the thoughts are so hard to explain. it’s like you can’t even wrap your mind around it but you know it feels wrong
I listened to a Ted talk recently about erp and every time we give into our compulsions or ocd we are “ feeding the monster” ( OCD) and the idea is to starve the monster. ( not doing compulsions) sometimes that analogy helps me.
Yes this happens to me!!!
