If you are easily influenced by the opinions and emotions of others...yes. I have unfortunately picked up a few from others in the past 🤷♀️
Yep, I’ve learned that to someone with OCD, the power of suggestion can be a dangerous thing. That said, you shouldn’t avoid other things for fear of that because ironically that is a compulsion lol
If one of your ocd themes is catching others ocd themes then it makes sense you’d start having intrusive thoughts about the themes you read. Are you working with an ocd specialist? Learning to mindfully let thoughts pass without attaching to them and engaging in mental compulsions will help prevent them from taking hold.
Yes I’m with ocd therapist nocd from heat
Ask them to help teach you mindfulness so you don’t attach to these thoughts
