Ali and Michelle have helped me alot since April. My anxiety went from a 9 to a 3 the lowest. It works. Sometimes it takes you getting to the point where your sick of being afraid. And that's cool too. But the hardest part is patience

How do I tell the difference between OCD worries and real-life worries? I keep ruminating about my health and don’t understand I don’t understand if this is an ocd thought or a real life one that I really need to solve. Both give anxiety and I cannot tell the difference
I am no expert as I always say, but if you have done all you can by going to Dr., perhaps diagnosed with an issue etc. and you still keep ruminating about it, I would say it is OCD. Real life issues can turn into OCD thoughts if we let them.

Thanks! It is the first time for me experiencing such thoughts and depression that it is hard to overcome sometimes. I want to think that I have had those thoughts for 8 months and nothing has happened so that is a relief. I’m sure there is light at the end of the tunnel.
Remember you are in control of your life -not OCD - even though at times it seems the opposite.

OCD is a very difficult disorder to have and at times I am sure most of us get down and depressed about it. I am not a professional but I would suggest that you treat these thoughts as any ocd thought and try to disregard, difficult as it may me. You are not alone. We are here for you.

I’ve been having Harm OCD for 8 months now that I’m afraid to be depressed and take some bad decisions about my life. I’ve been having the same thought every day and nothing and I can’t simply get over that thought of harming myself despite being in therapy for two months now and doing ERP. Is that thought about ending your life normal when having OCD?

So a few days ago i remembered a disturbing memory of my self. a few days later another memory appeared but i can’t tell whether it’s a false memory or in fact is real. i’m scared i’m in denial to admit it or in fact if it’s completely made up. like i don’t remember it as detailed as my other disturbing memory. this is taking over my life please help me. also i suffer from ocd as well.
Sounds like false memory ocd and the more you focus on it the worse it will get. Like Ali says think of the thoughts as background noise, let it be there but don't pay attention and anxiety and thoughts will eventually lessen.

Having a pretty big slip up just now. About an hour of constant compulsions around the same thought. Finally pulled myself away, but now I feel like I need to “start back up on a good note.” Like everything I have done that was good disregarding is in the passed now, and it is gonna be hard to get back to that state of mind.
We all have set-backs during recovery- I know I have certainly had many. All your past work was not in vain. OCD wants you to feel like you have failed. Don't listen to it and go on with recovery.

These are ocd thoughts trying to get you to engage and feel guilty. Pay no attention to them.

Is this weird? I feel like i have an urge to blur my vision and my brain tells me to do it constantly, i dont know if this is anxiety or what. I dont want to do it but my brain tells me to do it. Maybe because its easy to just do the action. Then my eyes kinda hurt or get tired
That's not too weird. It sounds like something that could be OCD, and could be from being anxious.

How do i know if i like my imagined scenarios or if it just OCD making me feel like i like them?
I think you answered your own question as at the beginning you said you had HOCD. Treat these thoughts as OCD and try to stop testing your thoughts and they will lessen.

Anonymous181450
I have HOCD and i usually imagine myself in scenarios to test if i like them. Then i am not sure if i like it or not. When i think about guys i never have to do that, i just know i like it. But im scared because i can imagine these scenarios with girls so intensely and vididly , and that makes me feel like i want it. I dont feel happy but my head tells me i want it. Is this OCD?.

It has been very hard for me to go to work as I feel there are too many triggers for me there and stress generally is too much.I think about quitting my job all the time but I don’t want to do it as I feel it will be me just avoiding and not recovering. How do I understand the difference between me really wanting to quit my job and me doing avoidance .? .
Only you can make that decision, however by staying and facing the triggers it probably will benefit your recovery. Maybe it is not all or nothing, like people with OCD tend to think. Maybe you can cut out some stressors and leave some.

Hi, I’ve been having a lot more OCD symptoms since quitting my job back in January to stay home with son. I’ve started my recovery process but wanted to ask if anyone had any tips for the journey?
Just keep following Ali's videos and doing your best. You probably have more "thinking" time when you are at home. The process of recovery is not really complicated but it is difficult but gets easier. Also, I found for me it made a difference to fully understand how OCD works and to stick with Ali's methods, not seeking an easier route to recovery which has postponed my recovery process.

Just try to do your best. I find OCD thoughts increase when going through anxious situations. Holidays can be an anxious situation as you are out of routine.
I’ve also come on holiday! I’ve had an intrusive thought every single day it’s exhausting, like you say I think it’s cause it’s completely new. I keep thinking what if I do something terrible to someone it’s usually harm ocd with me and then false memory with it

The students in the academic field who are going to do higher study have to face the pressure of assignments writing. Every student wants a good score in their academic career because a good result can take one step forward toward a bright future. The students do not have that much potential to create unique assignment content and too much pressure on assignment make a problem for the students. So

Is obsessive Love Disorder a type of OCD or is it treated differently? Not to be mistaken for ROCD.

I’m a mess. I’m broken.

I’m a Christian suffering from ocd and I don’t know what’s me following a compulsion or what’s god talking to me, what’s conviction what’s anxiety. Am I being tested or am I going further down the rabbit hole. I can’t dig myself out anymore. Every time I try I fall deeper down. I don’t feel much happiness lately. Mostly fear. All hours of the day. I fe
I am also a Christian and for me it boils down to me believing that God wants you whole and at peace - not a mess and broken. It sounds like OCD is playing its tricks and confusing you and causing you to be fearful. Trust your instincts and try ignoring the thoughts and see what happens. God can speak in many ways.
