Dangit. I cycle like this too! Do you have anything you do in order to stay busy? (Chores, errands, drawing?)
I can, but my mind can still ruminate
Yes I know this all to well. I start obsessing over thoughts, then ruminate on the fact that I'm thinking thoughts. It's weird. Are you taking any supplements or medications?
I take sertraline. I've just come off propranolol and that might be why my OCD is so bad now
