Ruminating

Quote

Hi everyone

So I struggle with false memory OCD connected to harm OCD and have been trying not to ruminate and when a thought comes I have been trying to see it for what it is (an OCD thought) and not engage with it and move on to something else. I think I'm managing not to consciously engage with it but I feel like I might be subconsciously doing it without realising. Even when I refocus my mind onto another task, like reading a book, it's still there in the background at the back of my mind and I wonder if I'm engaging with the thought subconsciously without realising I'm doing it.  I'm wondering if I'm doing something wrong and this is why the thoughts are not going even thought I've been doing this consistently for a few weeks.  Can anyone offer any advice?

I struggle with the same issue! I think the goal is to, even though it’s there, just life parallel to it without analyzing. But I have the same problem and question. It’s frustrating. Hope to hear others’ thoughts on this.
