“Maybe this is real, maybe this is OCD.” And just sit with whatever discomfort you have.
Maybe, maybe not helps me walk through the not knowing.
That’s why OCD is such a struggle because it feels so real. To recognize it, I find the common feelings the thoughts give me like I usually feel worthless or disgusting. Then I know it’s OCD I’m up against. I remind myself that I fuse with the thoughts almost automatically bc of habit but if I can just not do the compulsions, I will come out the other side completely not fused with the thought and I look back at it like “hmm why did I believe that!”
