how to stop intrusive thoughts?
i have intrusive thoughts all day long, whatever i do the thoughts would be in my mind, and i would do a lot of compulsions when i have the thoughts, like mental compulsions, washing, etc.. most of the time i re-do my action, and i also wash very excessively. is it true that ocd always make the sufferer think of the worse things that the sufferer is afraid of, or intensely dislike? and that it makes the sufferer think that the sufferer purposely think of the thought? even though i know its an ocd thought its very difficult for me to not do the compulsions and just carry on, it seemed impossible. i didnt want to contaminate myself and everything i own, thoughts can cause contamination to things, or myself (or parts of my body), so whatever i do i have to think of good thoughts, its became a habit for me, like as i'm typing i have to think of good thoughts because i'm afraid the bad thoughts would appear in my brain and then i'd have to re-type again, i cant help re-doing everything i do all day long, it's taking up a lot of my time i cant do anything.
i dont want to type out the list of my obsessions and compulsions, too much for me to say. is there a way to stop the thoughts?
