needyou In my day.. But I do them with the feeling of sadness. I feel sad when I have thoughts in the background of my mind.. This is the difficult part of recovery
User2525 Hey can somebody check my absurd theme in other types
User2525 Can someone chak it and reply please
Joe Its funny on this forum- Everyone comes, writes something, and when they dont get the answer they want to hear or dont get re assurance you come back as guests or pretend to be other guests and try THE SAME QUESTION again. I had a post about HOCD which was viewed almost 300 times in 3 days yet every other post as 3-10 views? Everyone is here for re-assurance and are not working towards Recovery!
Seamstress That's not completely true. I know what you mean, but I am here to help in my recovery as well as to encourage others. By the way how do I see how many views are on a post. Not aware of that feature. My main complaint with this forum is all the spam on it. Hard to find the real posts on forum.
Seamstress Never mind. I see the views now. Wasn't looking in the right place.
Hoping True, really hard to find the real posts
Hoping Hey everyone, does anyone have any suggestions or can share the morning routine you use during the weekends? I have severe OCD especially on weekend mornings, even if the rest of my week has been relatively okay.

Oh, totally, the sadness or fear was always in the background for me. But now I am so so much better. you are doing well if you are keeping yourself busy. The sadness will pass, believe me. Just keeping going! Track your rumination. It worked for me, it will work for you, don't give up

How do I ignore, so that I can actually start recovery?

Quote

Hi all,

I have religious ocd and I usually get terrible blasphemous thoughts and curse words when I am about to start (and even during) a religious obligation. I also have other problems (severe doubts, feelings, etc.). However, I try so hard to prepare for it before I start a religious duty and remind myself that I will get a terrible thought and I will have to ignore it and continue the religious duty I was starting. Yet, when it actually happens, I cannot ever ignore...ever. It is extremely difficult. I feels extremely wrong and unforgivable.

Any true and tried tactics that helped you all ignore?

PLEASE do not mention any curse words or blasphemous words/phrases. They are extremely triggering for me.

Thank you.

You are getting these thoughts because Jesus means so, so much to you

How long has this been going on? Whenever you get a thought, think of it as a lie, or a trick to make you stumble.

Thoughts have nothing to do with reality no matter how real they seem. If a thought is stuck in your mind remind yourself that Jesus knows that you are having this thought, and he knows you wouldn’t actually do this. Someone who actually did this would not be searching for help, because by then they would already have hardened their hearts toward our mighty Lord. What are your doubts?

I had this very badly. Right now most important thing is to stop ruminating and to understand that this is a mental issue not a religious issue. Your OCd is attacking your faith because you love it. You are not committing sins. Jesus loves you no matter what.

Little off topic, but can someone reply to my post called am I okay?

Original poster here. Thank you all so much for helping me and giving me advice! God bless you!

This has been going on for three or more years now.  It started out as a bad thought that annoyed me, and then the thoughts got more frequent and more intense in their blasphemy and severity against God. It frightens me and prevents me from completing the religious duty I was doing and I keep on starting over and over and over and say good things to cancel out the terrible words in my thoughts.
