it is 100% percent normal
It is completely normal, from my experience.
This is totally normal. I’ve had the same, followed by such scary thoughts 😩😩 but using erp and accepting the thought and saying “yeah maybe” has made a difference for me. I really don’t get bothered by a lot of my thoughts anymore
but wont the "yeah maybe" end up confusing you? since intrusive thoughts usually go for what you dont want
I get what you’re saying, and they might in the moment, but that’ll be ocd talking because it still wants to be certain that it’s not true. I found that after a while when it’s not an obsession anymore, I’m actually less confused because the ocd is weaker and I can think about it clearly. The erp therapy targets the ocd, not your actual feelings :)
Doing it will be uncomfortable though, especially at first!! The point is to let yourself be uncomfortable
