I think it's pretty common to be afraid they are real Just answer to your thoughts "maybe, maybe not" don't try to look for answers You'll get through this❤
Hey friend. I can definitely relate to OCD trying to convince me of the same thing when I am unsure if I did something wrong or not, like I'll rationally be able to see exactly why I did nothing wrong at all, but my OCD will combat whats rational and show me irrational reasons why it was wrong. It may not be "exactly" the same, but it is the same way of obsessing. You're definitely not the only one, but like bluesapphire said, don't look for answers because that'll only feed into your OCD more and it'll make the obsession worse. I look for answers a lot too, and every time I do it just makes it worse. So, hopefully we can both work on breaking out of that way of thinking and instead just learn to be content with the uncertainty of what it is we're obsessing over. It's easier said than done, but I think it'll be well worth it for both of us in the long run. :) I hope you're having a nice day Just Breathe. :) how is work going today?
Thank you. Really struggling again. Work is ok. Trying to be productive and it’s hard to concentrate
I'm sorry friend. :( I have a hard time concentrating while I'm working a lot too, especially when it's too quiet. Maybe it will help if you listen to some music while you work, like that song "Until Grace" by Tauren Wells & Rascal Flatts. Are you allowed to listen to music at work?
@Drew777 Yes we are but I don’t do it often
@Just Breathe ❤️ Yeah, me neither, but only because I work with someone else and I don't like ear buds because they always fall out of my ears.
