I've been doing good for a while, but then it all came back. My boyfriend misses the old me that loved him endlessly, I miss being in love with him. I love him so much yet my anxiety scares me when he hugs me, scares me with s*x. I can't do it anymore, I just want help. I want to forgive myself but all I see is a failure

Hi everyone. I think I have rOCD. I obsess over things my partner has or hasn’t done. Right now I’m obsessed with some minor “evidence” that he’s cheated on me while I’ve been on holiday. I don’t want to go into this evidence because it opens a can of worms, but objectively speaking there are perfectly reasonable explanations that disprove my so called evidence, and this isn’t the

I've got ROCD. My biggest problem to cope with it are my severe stomach pains. Sometimes it gets a little bit better, then I don't ruminate. But as soon they pass a break even point, I don't now what to do. It's practically impossible to not think about it or stand the thoughts as guided. So, what can I do, to do proper ERP? Is it perhaps possible you make a podcast on pain and ROCD?

Ali could you discuss the topic of “Association OCD” , which is when things you like/do/enjoy gets ‘ruined’ because you attach an intrusive thought to you. This makes you either avoid or not enjoy these things because everytime you encounter you are reminded and triggered by that thought you associated. It could be with literally anything but my main issue is mainly food, people, placed

I’ve been dealing with what I believe to be OCD for coming up to seventeen years; the key word here is “believe”. It doesn’t matter what your therapist or anyone else believes, it only matters what you believe. I think it’s worth trying for a time to treat what you’re experiencing as if it is OCD. 2/3
If you don’t see any improvement, you can always discuss other possible explanations and treatments with your therapist in the future. Personally, I think applying Ali’s method can be valuable regardless of if you have OCD, because it can help build our ability to trust ourselves. 3/3

I know it’s been some time since you messaged this forum, but I’d like to help if I can now. First, don’t fall into the trap of trying to prove to yourself and your therapist that you have OCD, let alone that ROCD is real. Trying to prove its existence can become an OCD theme, so it’s best to sidestep that entirely. 1/3

Hi! I think I’m experiencing ROCD. I’m really afraid because I talked to my therapist and she told me that ROCD doesn’t exist. So I’m feeling like I’m denial and I’m crazy

I think if you think it is a compulsion than it probably is one. Avoiding is definitely a compulsion. Anything that you do to try to get rid of your anxiety in the moment can be considered a complusion
