Reading books on OCD, and there are a few tik tokers that have really amazing helpful videos on OCD
When I only found out I actually have an OCD, I found a video by Katie d'Ath. She compared an intrusive thought to the train that you don't actually have to hop on and just let this train pass by, with no reaction to it. Then I was watching more videos on youtube and listening to people who also have OCD. I would never wish anyone ro have this mental disorder, but not being alone with this case is calming. And then I found NOCD app and it was an extra wave of reassurance. I can't be thankful enough for its existence. So, for me, listening to people who knows about OCD is the way. But OCD is a ride on a roller coaster. So there are moments when nothing can help you to reassure yourself. You have to just go through this((
@Anon1294 Overcoming Unwanted Intrusive Thoughts was an amazing book in my opinion. Is there any book that you would recommend?
@Tulipwood Free Yourself from OCD by Jonah Lakin, it broke down the science of why our brains react the way they do and it put things in perspective
@SimonHealy I just found Katie d'Ath on YouTube a few days ago and she's amazing. I'm grateful for this app as well.
@Anon1294 Might give it a read, thank you!
@Tulipwood Rewire Your OCD Brain is wonderful
@JP2323 Adding it to the list, thanks!
