Is this normal?

Quote

Is it normal for OCD to make you think you like the thoughts or thinking about it or would want to do it after thinking about it so much? I know it's not who I am and I would have never thought about it until this happened but now I just don't know who I am and it feels like I don't mind it sometimes which makes me want to die

It feels so real, but gotta know that that's a part of it. I have literally cried so many times because of it. It gives me stupid unwanted thoughts that aren't even true and even though I know that I'm still afraid. But I am trying to meditate everyday and whenever I get those thoughts I just do somthing, anything. Play chess or listen to a song or sing offkey. Doing something just makes me more involved in the present moment. It works for me temporarily. Maybe you can try it too.
