Its finding other ways to get at you
that’s what my therapist says, as well!
This is recovery pretty much! I’ve been here for a while. You just have to get to the point of not ruminating now
it’s so frustrating, like i don’t even realize i’m doing it! and then i’m like “uh how long have i been trying to rationalize that trigger?” 😂
@bdk Even better though that means you’re ready to now start to stop ! Yitmmm
@bdk Literally in the same boat ⛵ as you like sometimes i respond to my intrusive thoughts with a cumpulsion and i catch myself like damn i just responded to the intrusive thoughts. But i have the bad habit going like i already did might aswell keep going and get to the bottom of this. Smh so hard to handle
@HiOcd yes i do that, too! and i never get an answer but i’m always like maybe this time i will lol
@bdk It's like i do it until it feels right and i feel a good amount of reassurance
@HiOcd yes! self reassurance is my biggest compulsion.
