OCD Help Chat 
Anonymous69565 It also relaxes me when I am with my cats and play with them.. They have fun
Anonymous71400 Aww that’s so cute apparently stroking pets is a good way of therapy cause it calms you
Anonymous69565 Yes it's so good to be with animals... I have three beautiful kittens.. I love them
Anonymous63628 Question. Why does every thought feel worse than the last despite the fact that I thought that last time?
Anonymous71360 maybe it has to do with problem solving and urgency
Anonymous71360 any good tips on accepting uncertainty?
Anonymous62972 Hi, why can’t I answer myself the question if I would act out the thoughts? It seems like most of the other OCD sufferers know, but I don’t
Anonymous69565 What thoughts?

You could try listening to music at night
Anonymous69423 I hate that my compulsion more is having to say “I’m straight” to have a normal day. Idk why I feel if I don’t say it I won’t be who I was anymore. It sounds stupid.

I have this too I know how you feel
Anonymous71635 How do you know for sure with pocd that the anxiety isn't real. Deep down i know it's not real but my mind says constantly but what if it was? The fake attraction feels really real.
Anonymous71635 With anxiety i mean fake attraction in the first sentence ^^
Anonymous71643 I have rocd. How do i dissociate these intrusive thoughts with my girlfriend. Everting
Anonymous71643 Everytime i think of her i instantly get these thoughts.
Anonymous71643 Let me reword that. How do i start to dissociate my girlfriend with these feeling of anxiety and intrusive thoughts. Everytime I think of her I think of these thoughts and anxiety.
Anonymous67461 Is it normal to react to intrusive thoughts with like its a realization. I had an intrusive thought the other day and it felt like there was 0 anxiety and it was a realization. Then i got really scared and ruminate about it

Be honest with her and tell her that u suffer from ocd and none of your thoughts are actually yours. If u explain how they scare u and they are intrusive she will know that they mean nothing. U dont even have to be specific just say i get really scary thoughts at times they arent me or anything just a part of ocd but i still feel anxious abt them

I SUFFERED FROM THIS LAST SUMMER!! I would close my eyes and then i felt myself stop to breathe and i wouldnt be able to sleep because i would panic and cry. I told my mom about my problem and i thought it would never go away. She told me that it was just anxiety and i just need to keep my mind occupied. I distracted myself during the day and ignored when the sensations would come at night.

Basically u get these thoughts only about her because u care abt her so much. Ocd attacks what we care about. Ocd can attack anything but it can specifically go towards ppl we love since we care about them so deeply.
Anonymous67461 I wonder how michele is doing she hasnt been on in awhile. If you guys have any questions i am in ocd recovery right now

Ok listen. U will never know. The fact that u are looking for certainty is just more proof of ocd going on. U are looking for certainty which is impossible. There is legit no certainty in anything. The only thing u can do is chose to treat it as ocd even if it feels wrong and keep going with recovery. Ik its hard as a fellow pocd sufferer it is torture. But u can do it.

Also once u disregard little by little u will feel better and look back and be like oh yea that was just ocd.
Anonymous67461 If u are on this chat in the first place trust me its ocd. Ppl who are actually awful wouldnt be analyzing or worrying this hard abt thoughts,sensations, urges, feelings, etc

Thats exactly what hocd does. I am a straight female and have only ever been attracted to men but for some reason i would be next to a girl and get these weird sexual images about her. It is so so common u have no idea. At the end of the day though our thoughts mean nothing. We are meant to have junk thoughts and weird thoughts are natural. I used to think hocd thoughts were the end of the world

But now i brush these thoughts off like nothing. Analyzing and wondering if u actually like it is all ocd

My time tracking

Hello Ali,

I am posting here my time tracking for the last 7 days. I have been doing the recovery for almost 10 months now, and I have gotten a lot better, just still fall down from time to time. The process has been a little more complicated due to the fact that my country has been in lockdown for the last almost 7 months, and also I had had (H)OCD for almost 6 years before that. Your Youtube channel has helped me enormously, Ali, thank you so much for that.
Here are my numbers:

-2nd April: 
wake up - 9 = 1 min.
9-12 = 1
12-15= 1
15-18 = 2
18-21= 2
21 - going to bed = 0

-3rd April:
w. - 9 = 0
9-12 = 0
12-15 = 1
15-18 = 1
18-21 = 0
21 - going to bed = 1

4th April:
w-9 = 0
9-12 = 1
12-15 = 0
15-18 = 1
18-21 = 0
21-going to bed = 1

5th april - here I started to have a little setback.
w-9 = 0
9-12 = 0
12-15 = 1
15-18 = 1
18 - 21 = 5
21 - going to bed = 10

 

6th April:
w-9 = 1
9-12 = 3
12-15 = 3
15-18 = 1
18 - 21 = 0
21 - going to bed = 0

7th April:
w-9= 0
9-12= 0
12-15= 1
15-18= 1
18-21= 1
21- going to bed =3

8th April:
w-9= 0
9-12=1
12-15= 7
15-18=8
18-21= 1
21- going to bed = 1

Have a great day!
