What do you think would happen if you didn’t check?
What do you mean?
@Cloclo4 When you did the double take did it feel like you have to? Sometimes I get so used to my ocd that I do my compulsions without thinking
@Savannah604 Yea it did! Same :(
@Cloclo4 I hope you don’t mind me asking, but what was your intrusive thought before you looked back
@Savannah604 To be honest I didn’t really have an intrusive thought but like I walked by and saw a stroller but it looked empty so I was like okay phewph then I looked back to make sure and there was a baby in it then I just felt guilty cuz that baby looked so cute and innocent. But I didn’t even have an intrusive thought, I just felt bad like oh I walked by and looked back like what if I accidentally did something
@Cloclo4 I think because of your anxiety you were worried, ocd causes you to want to double check on things. if you feel like it was your ocd next time don’t look because it’s not your fault if there was or wasn’t a baby. I’m not sure if you meant that your brain told you you were happy about there not being a baby or if you wanted to make sure that there was a baby. Either way next time something like this happens do not make your self feel guilty for what has happened.
