Yeah it’s still intrusive. Same thing happens to me. It’ll show a kid. Not even sexual but I just know the meaning behind it. Yk?
Ocd can present itself in any way, it just wants to get a reaction out of you
thid might be a TW? we have similar experiences 😭😭 im undiagnosed, and ive gone through like a lot of different phases that come with the same unwanted thoughts and rumination, and the most recent one may be pocd… i experience those same intrusive thoughts. i just feel like bring undiagnosed makes it worse bc its like yk what if i am a weirdo and im like subconsciously using ocd as an excuse i hate it sm 😟
Yes. Intrusive thoughts don't have to be sexual in nature. Sometimes I have ones that are just annoying because they won't go away, not because of the specific content.
That is exactly what happened to me, I couldn’t stop thinking about a child (one I know) but that’s all it was and then it led me to have more intrusive thoughts because I couldn’t figure out why I was just thinking of that
Yeah omg, lately my intrusive thoughts are literally about a random child that I saw on the internet and it’s just that
