Who has recovered from Sensorimotor OCD here? What worked best for you and what didn’t work?

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!
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?
