Social media can be a tricky and triggering world for OCD. Have you tried not doing this hand gesture when you see this post/think about it? It might be a good exposure to try to look at that trend, feel the urge to try to check yourself, and then not do it. Just continue with your day as though you never had that doubt, as though you never had that thought. In fact, you could always try to lean into the uncertainty and welcome it in, which is a great way to beat OCD at its own game. Bring it on, So-OCD - you got me last time but this next one is mine - I'm not giving into THAT tiktok trend compulsion anymore.
Thank you so much this was great advice. I don’t do the hand flip it’s more like small hand gestures that make me think I’m doing it. Sometimes I do but it’s not intentional like I can’t explain it but yeah. I’m just so scared everyone things I’m gay purly because of some Mannerisms I either have or sometimes do by accident
Even knowing you’ve read this comment makes me think omg this lady things I’m gay bevause if the hand gestures I saw in tiktok and that I feel like I’m doing even though I’m probably not and it’s just a hand mannerism but if it’s not omg shes read this and she definitely thinks I’m gay now. Like it’s horrible but thank you so much for your advice!
