What is the best strategy for swallowing... don't swallowing or swallow
Anonymous201059
Yesterday I had such a case as if I observed a child in an intimate place, I didn't remember it, I thought it was impossible physically to do something like this and I started to check and when I saw a child I looked specifically at the intimate area, also quickly and for a moment, but I regret why I did it or does it mean something?

Is like telling your concern , you are inviting more people with same concern to worry together
Anonymous200275
Then someone would say , this happens , it might come back just do the same . No much to it . Rather like it is a replase , you would be stuck , your life would be miserable etc

I just wish someone would tell me, this is normal , you don’t have ocd . And then tell me this is what you can do . And like an ordinary thing .

Not something like if you don’t do you will be trapped forever….

For a moment there, I thought I was normal , things are back to normal , now I have to go to exposure , like this is the norm for me

Is like no way out ….
Anonymous200275
Is like I want to take a break , but it is breathing , you would be aware , so you just have to do your walk . Before I knew walk was an exposure, walk was easier . Now that I know for some is an exposure, I feel I have to keep my mind up and look out for ocd . Tiring .

Then you think am I doing it right , why is it still here , why am I still aware of it …..

The thought of doing recovery for breathing , is tiring . It is just there reminding you to do to do to do

Thank you for replying. Some days I don't have any intrusive thoughts and other days I do have intrusive thoughts, so it's inconsistent for me. I do research online sometimes and other times I'm able to disregard the thoughts. Do you have any advice on how to be more consistent with my recovery? Thanks!
I don’t know if I have sensorimotor ocd or just anxiety. A month ago I had panic attacks for three days continuously and I got super aware of my breathing then I started focusing on it a lot and days passed I couldn’t stop breathing manually as the fear resided inside me now it’s been a month and it’s hard to let that thought go of not being able to breathe

OCD recovery is up and down - I find that anyway. Have you tried tracking and reducing your ruminations and compulsions? Also I find watching Ali's videos every day as well as past videos keeps me in the loop of recovery. Also try to be gentle with set-backs- which I find difficult to do.

Not sure. Maybe you are in later stages of recovery and OCD is trying to pull you back in or when you say OCD is manageable in the day - are you still doing a lot of rumination and compulsions that could be feeding your OCD? Just a couple of suggestions.

Hello! Although I feel like my OCD during the day is manageable. My OCD seems to get worse at night, it will wake me up in the middle of the night. It begins with an intrusive thought which then turns into these very scary physical sensations. I feel chills all over my body and start trembling. Because of these sensations, I can't go back to sleep. Do you have any advice on how to manage this?
