Yeah happens to me too
That's how they happened like half of the tim
Yes. It feels like a snowball rolling downhill, gaining steam.
It happens all the time for me. It's like you realize you're not thinking about a pink elephant so then of course that's what you think about. But really no, you're not "trying" to think about them. It's just OCD wanting to stay relevant in your mind. OCD can be relentless about wanting to have your attention and will look for any opening to jump in. Whenever the thoughts do come, just acknowledge that they're there, don't try to push or analyze them away, and try to keep on with your day as though those thoughts weren't there.
Thanks! This really helped ❤️
The only thing I’ve found to help a bit is intense physical exercise.
