try to reduce by just a few minutes, it's just accountability. The thoughts will always feel real

Yes Ali they seem so real , how do I reduce , and then sometimes I’ll randomly remember the thought, I will be stuck forever with Ocd because it’s chronic
Ali Greymond they will always seem real, you need to make a decision to view them as ocd even though they feel real

But I thought if we view our thoughts as Ocd then it is a compulsion

Hey, I won't give you reassurance but remember how many times OCD has tries to pull you down. Sit with it and let it flow. Try to redirect your attention elsewehre

Think of it like this - Worry about not being 100% OCD while being controlled by your OCD or reduce rumination and compulsions and potentially (yes uncertainty here too sorry) return to a life that is worth it. Living life doing complusions and the thinking that occurs versus no complusions is a 360 difference i promise
Anonymous118619 You won't regret reducing complusions and ruminations i promise.

Yh I know but it’s just awful how we can’t be like normal again , like 100% Ocd free , it just sucks
Ali Greymond In the next hour make actual progress in reducing rumination and compulsions, you can't just say how bad the situation is, you need to start turning at around and the more you put it off the worse it will get

I don’t really do compulsions but I don’t know how to reduce ruminating or disregard thoughts
Anonymous120212 Hi Ali I have harm ocd and I am watching your videos but struggling to stop ruminating. How do you know you won’t act out intrusive thoughts?

This is a complusion. Put this as "OCD and disregard" basket
Anonymous120235 I think I might have ocd lately, I keep adding new things to my room to "improve it" and now focused on my home theater and I keep get bothering over and over on things like if the tv is exactly at the center, if the speakers are one taller than another and nothing ever looks "even"
Anonymous120235 How do I stop giving in these urges and enjoy the things that I have?
Anonymous120235 Sometimes I get the thought like "when I'll fix everything in the room I'll really be able to enjoy a movie with this new tv, but only after then etc"

Hi each time you get an urge to change something around , resist the urge. Don’t do it
Anonymous120235 will it go away?
Anonymous120235 'cause as soon as I start resisting it it bothers me like scratching my brain 'til I don't do it...difficult to explain it in words

Each time you Resist it should get easier , in the start it will be hard and you will have anxiety but just sit with it and don’t do any urges and each time you refuse an Urge it will get easier
Anonymous120235 thank you, new to this, been talking about it with my therapist which I'm seeing since 2 years, she said we'll just monitor how it goes for now before declaring it's ocd

Anonymous85281 Hey guys I’m very happy to say that I finally talked to my mom and asked for help today we are going to get a therapist
Anonymous85281 Also what’s really concerning me is that now that I have no anxiety I don’t react with panic anymore which means I don’t really engage with my thoughts but I still think it’s a problem because they keep coming in, that’s why I believe I’m having them on purpose because I’m just kinda like idc anymore but the thoughts are still coming in. Why? And it’s almost like normal thoughts no
Anonymous85281 Now and that I’m not even attracted to men anymore. Will it ever come back? If I’m having the thoughts on purpose that means I’ll never truly get rid of them

I'm really scared of pocd and I'm terrified because it feels like it's not ocd anymore

I'm very worried it won't stop and the attraction feeling feels so real and i keep getting dreams about it and is worrying me it doesn't feel like pocd anymore and it feels like Im not worried and I'm scared it feels like it isn't ocd anymore and I want to scream 

Hello! I understand how scary it must be to deal with these feelings, especially when it’s difficult to decipher how genuine they are.

You’re definitely not alone. I have personally dealt with this, and many others on this website have as well. OCD comes in many forms- it is not limited to just thoughts. OCD can even come in through dreams. I’ve had that happen to me many times.

You also mentioned that you weren’t feeling worried about having these dreams/feelings of attraction. But you’re still feeling anxious! You’re feeling anxious about not feeling that initial anxiety, so what you’re dealing with is still OCD.

What has helped me a lot, is this: Whenever I am confronted with some sort of content that bothers me, I store whatever that may be in an OCD box, and a write it off as unimportant. I don’t go back to check, and I don’t go back to figure it out. I just leave it. Trying to figure it out is a compulsion, which only adds fuel to the fire.

So, try your best to disregard, my friend! I understand it may seem real, but if OCD didn’t feel real, then it would be MUCH easier to navigate through this. I wish you the best of luck.
