Same to me. Like when you don’t think about it the things that usually triggers you don’t trigger you and when you have those thoughts again it triggers you
YES I TOTALLY GET THAT!! ill be minding my own business and then ill think about my theme and immediately get anxious. like thinking about my rocd or pocd triggers my rocd and pocd. hate that thats how that works
Yes exactly. I always need distraction and even that doesn’t help me sometimes. And it only helps for a while and you know when you go home the horrible feeling comes back. I feel like I totally lost it now like I’m so deep in I can’t get out. I have small moments when the thoughts are gone and I know it’s just an obession, but then boom it pops up again and it is stronger than before
@San2 yess and then you just feel stuck, and the distractions dont help anymore :[ even for short periods of time. it really sucks. usually i try to just do any work that i need to get done because at least then its something i HAVE to do
@icedmilkk Yes exactly. It feels horrible and you are scared all the time that the thoughts are true. May I ask which themes you have? I bother with sexual orientation ocd and I had relationship ocd but it switched up. (I’m not diagnosed but these are my themes)
@San2 Mine can be so bad where all i want to do is curl up in a ball and hide lol I’ve isolated myself so much bc i can’t NOT be anxious. There are times where I’m completely fine and i know for certain that i want to be with my bf then my ROCD is like “WAIT did you forget about me???” And that’s when the anxiety/panic sets in smh
@San2 my themes are rocd and pocd, but im pretty sure im pure o. and yeah i get that too, worrying that my thoughts are true. im not diagnosed either but im planning to talk to a therapist and a psychiatrist soon!!
@arp1014 Yess sameee
@Micky ♡ Same it’s so hard I hope I get diagnosed soon but I’m scared
Ocd is so dam evil , but I know we can push through the storm and beat this good luck.
