Yes it comes and goes 24/7 lol
Like rational thinking for a split second
Yeah, and then I'm like "crap I must not have OCD"
Yeah that will happen. I’ve been dealing with OCD since December with multiple sexual themes and then there are random small moments for split seconds where I’m like “wait…why am I even thinking this I’m so obviously not this or that” and then that moment of clarity fades away.
Yes! I get little moments that feel like a breath of fresh air, even if only for a second or a few minutes. You will get more of this time as you continue to sit through compulsions
Yep. And often it’s when you don’t expect it or you’ve gone through ling periods without feeling avoidance or other compulsions. Then you see an image or hear something that distracts you.
Yup, it's so fleeting but it happens!
Anytime I find myself rationally thinking I remember everything I could be worrying about. Talking to you guys really is helping though and I’m so excited to start getting therapy.
Yes it is like the clouds have parted and a choir is singing! Ha. And then OCD comes back. But those moments of clarity encourage me to keep going with therapy and ERP because I’m reminded of what it feels like to be free from OCD doubt and it feels so good!
