Does anybody else get rage or anger or frustration from having to do ERP? Or not doing your compulsions causing anger and frustration?

Ummmmm well….i normally hit myself or inanimate objects which is a horrible coping mechanism, so don’t do that🤣 But for me reading helps and so does playing a game on my phone

I get you! I've thrown objects and have screamed at my husband. Now that we have a 1-year-old I don't want to have any more outbursts nor do I want her to be exposed to that. But I definitely have a hard time if my OCD is acting up I just didn't exposure and everything's going on around me. Maybe doing something like sitting down In meeting or giving myself 15 minutes of my own time a day would help.
