What do you mean by this?
Like if the obsessions feel real then isn’t that not ocd? Don’t people with ocd know logically that the obsessions don’t make sense?
@LizardLady95 Oh okay yeah I get what you mean. Yeah I struggle with this too sometimes it feels real than other times it doesn’t. Well for me at least.
Doesn’t mean a thing, the cycle of thinking is still ocd, the feelings are overwhelming and of course your brain will believe it because of your reaction (that you can’t control) to it. I’ve spent weeks stuck in an ocd cycle believing it trying to prove it wrong. It’s still OCD.
Ugh it’s exhausting! Thank you for your reply
It’s so exhausting. I have harm ocd and it feels so real it feels like I will do Something awful if not now Later…constantly comes back even when it calms down it will try to remind me again to pay attention. I am also in therapy so it’s very frustrating.
