What makes you hold on to OCD
I have a question,
most of us know the thoughts are silly, but it tricks us and makes us feel these things in our minds are real when they are not.. but I'm so tired of OCD and I want to try something new and just say this is OCD forget it . it has no power over me and I'll be fine
Why can't I do that ? because I have more thoughts of " what if " and more intrusive thoughts that trap me into the cicle over and over..I wonder will I'll be free to live my life how I'd like too because it stinks so bad to where its just another day that I know holds struggles for me
What keeps y'all hanging on to rituals, when we know its OCD ? I think that if i say ok no more and walk away from OCD will I be able too, because its been with my basically the majority of my life and I don't know how I'd be without it.. would I be the same ? would I change completely, I'm ready to find out.. because this puts a strain on my life and has taken it away from me and i cant let it continue
But I dont feel that strong sometimes, I really dont know exactly how to beat this crappy illness
Thanks to all who read and respond to this God bless always
