Sometimes when I try to resist ruminating on my harm ocd thoughts I also feel guilty, like I'm doing something wrong by not "figuring the thoughts out." The uncertainty is certainly uncomfortable, but I believe embracing the uncertainty will help overcome the ocd
@Sher Yeah I've also had struggles worrying and ruminating about whether I remember something correctly or not. False memory ocd can be really frustrating. If you can resist giving into ruminating, it does get easier over time. Good luck!
I'm just starting my recovey from what I believe is Pocd and pure O. Guilt and shame are huge with these types of thoughts. I struggle a lot with compulsive rumination. I've found some articles today that you may find helpful on learning to pause the rumination https://drmichaeljgreenberg.com/articles/ It isn't a clinically tested approach, but it really resonated with me. Brought me a sense of agency over my thoughts. Best of luck!
It's all about OCD in general and the overthinking (pure O) that goes with it. It applies to all subtypes though. Articles are short and accessible. I'd start with the one on Core Fears. That was insightful.
