I wrote a similar post today. I get scared of going to sleep. I have POCD and have had a few absolutely horrendous and terrifying dreams.
I read dreams manifest as thoughts we repress throughout the day. So whenever we try to put our ocd thoughts out of mind, they make their way back to our subconscious
Hmm I don’t agree with that, some of my dreams are most certainly not my thoughts but there is that ocd strain running through them. I think for me personally, it is a pinch from my ocd fears, a pinch from smth that may have happened recently or someone I was thinking about and then random stuff from Environment or memory from life, tv shows etc. And it all gets jumbled up but because our ocd is so distressing to us, our brain is trying to process it during sleep.
