Hello everyone, I had the shock of my life yesterday when I did a exposure. At the most horrible time it could've been I got In a really weird stage of arrousal (times 10). Idk what to do, I cant explain why, i didnt want it. Am I mixing up extreme anxiety with arrousal? I read it could be a groinal response but it felt extreme. Please help, Im convinced this isnt ocd
Honestly non of us think it's ocd. I have felt the same as you for a while and I can see myself believing it's ocd more and more

Hi, can someone give me CBT advice on contamination OCD? I don’t understand how to view germs and I feel very guilty if a drop of bodily waste gets anywhere other than the toilet. I can find nothing online other than people saying “just don’t do compulsions.” This isn’t helpful I need someone to change my thinking. Thank you!

Accept the thought and move on to another task as if it was no big deal.
She also mentioned in one of her podcasts to use an aggressive reaction, like agree with the thought but in a sarcastic way. I have been doing that and then just letting the thought be there how ever long it wants. It was in her 3 ways to react to a thought episode.

When Ali says to disregard and say something like, "I don't believe that thought, it's an OCD symptom." Should I actually say it to myself in my head or should I simply ignore the thought all together and not say anything? What is the best approach? I also want to thank Ali for what she does and all her help!!

What if same thought or memory just constantly latches onto your mind? You ignore it but this is the first thing that you remember when you wake up and last thing you think before you go to bed. It's pointless and a closed chaper but still even after disregarding it just never goes away. Any advice?
I can absolutely relate. I think it is the uncertainty, why it is so hard to let a thought go. That’s why it is so important for us, or everyone, to life with the uncertainty.

It's so hard to remove rumination about my compulsions from the back of my mind. I think this became a problem because I feel stuck in life. I don't have a lot going for me and thanks to these compulsions I'm afraid to step out of my comfort zone

Hi Guys, I think I am suffering with HOCD. The entire day I keep worrying about if I am gay. I have not been able to sleep or eat past for a past few days. Everytime I step out of the house, I look all the girls and guys and analyze if I am feeling anything.
Stay strong and do erp. It is worth it!!

I’m having a hard time knowing that anxiety is not always a bad thing and it’s trying to protect you. Then how do I know when I disregard if I’m supposed to be scared or not. Irrational vs rational thinking is keeping me stuck

My biggest compulsion is researching on google/youtube on a daily basis. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to stop?

It's not the feeling bad that is my biggest concern, it is learning how to not react so quickly to the high anxiety.
I think I know what you mean. I have physical compulsions that I sometimes perform unconsciously. Even just slight anxiety can see me perform them, so it has become a frustrating habit that's difficult to break. I haven’t any helpful advice; I just try to discontinue the compulsion as soon as I’ve noticed.

My ocd was gone and now it’s back in full force. How do I stop having relapsed after I have fully recovered?
As for how to prevent future relapses, I think one of the most important things you can do is to learn to trust yourself. When we’re afraid of ourselves or the unknown, OCD takes control in an unhelpful attempt to protect us and our values. If you can come to trust yourself, OCD won’t have as much room, if any, in your life.

I think that the first step is to forgive yourself for relapsing. Then, pick back up the tools that helped you overcome it the first time. I’m guessing that OCD has found a new theme or angle through which to get you to engage with it. The theme might be new, but the OCD is the same old OCD---it still needs your emotional reactions and rumination to fuel it. Do your best to disregard it.

Hey guys. I struggle with OCD & along with that comes daily depersonalization. Does anyone have any tips on disregarding the DP? It's been going on for years now.
I haven’t too much experience with depersonalization, but I recall that Ali’s method is to recognize it as a perception created by OCD. Do your best to not ruminate on it. Avoid reacting to the sensation with fear. You have to treat it like you would an OCD thought. I’m sorry I can’t be of more help. Ali has more videos on YouTube about the subject, if you're interested.

How do I know this is ocd I have been struggling with this them of ocd hocd it sucks
I use to deal with HOCD. Best way I found to face it was go along with the thoughts "well maybe I am gay, oh well. I have other things to focus on today." Or "I've had this thought so many times before. Just another OCD thought. Oh well."On with your day. It's hard. But helps.

Thanks. However, I think there are times when I do it on purpose just to reduce the high anxiety at the time. Perhaps I need to stop and take a breath and think first.

I stopped feeling bad after realizing that its not me doing it on purpose. If I did it on purpose, i would have thought about it at that time. This kind of mindset helped me a lot.cool

One thing I struggle with is doing certain compulsions automatically without even thinking about them and then I feel bad after. Just like something comes over me without even having time to think. Any suggestions????

Hello everyone. My english is not the best but I try. Sometimes, when I'm not bothered by my OCD, it can come to my mind after a while, that I haven't thought about it today. After realizing that, I tend to question myself. I wonder, why im not asking myself the usual questions. Almost as if im scared to be "normal" and shocked about the fact, that I don't have intrusive thoughts.
I think it takes a little while for our brains to adjust to different thinking. We are used to being anxious and "on guard" all the time.

@Seamstress: Did you take the program with ally or any of her coaches?
Did have some coaching with Ali sev. years ago, but mainly recovering on own with listening to videos. Been a long time recovering with many unfortunate detours but on track now with more understanding of how things work.

Would like to see more people on here who would like to encourage others and also be encouraged to complete recovery as well as be accountable to one another on a regular basis. Are there interested people??? Perhaps people who would check in on a daily basis.
I plan to give back but need to know how and finding recovery will be a huge part of that.
