Intrusive thoughts?
« on: February 27, 2014, 01:07:21 PM »
So I was wondering do you guys question your thoughts all the time like say if you have harm ocd or like hocd do you guys ask yourself "do I think I could hurt someone?" "Do I think I'm actually gay?" And then the thought it's self is so doubtful it's like you can't answer and you just ruminate about constantly! I was just wondering what you guys think? Thanks

Yes, I had that. A lot. What I found out though is that it does not help in getting rid of intrusions. If everything, it makes them worse. I basically had to learn to leave these thoughts buzz at the back of my brain, not giving them attention they want because they feed with our doubts and reassurance seeking. And they kinda gave up  :P.

As others were; I have not seen
As others saw; I could not bring
My passions from a common spring.

Yes a lot until I found another symptom of an illness to obsess about and then they kind of faded away. Constantly observing my thoughts like Ohhhh is this what a crazy person thinks are these the thoughts everyone talks about. While at the same time saying I can never do this to someone this is so ridiculous haha.

Yes.  It is a compulsion.  I try not to do it anymore.
