Hello I just wondered if anyone else experiences this or if it is a known phenomenon. I have recently had a really tough few weeks with quite a severe OCD spike. I was ruminating about an event which happened over two years ago and there was a particular memory (which is real as far as I'm concerned) which I seem to have thought so much about that I can't really remember it as clearly anymore. Does anyone else have this? I'm not looking for reassurance, just wondering if this is a 'thing'?
Has anyone ever made you do this and you've done it but felt like it's not the truth? My partner just made me swear on someone dear to me that I don't know if I cheated (I'm obsessing about it) and I did swear on them but I feel like I've lied. What if I'm lying or is this part of the OCD where you are so convinced of whatever it is you think you have done?
I don't have any experience of this kind of OCD theme but my personal opinion as someone looking in; if you enjoyed the bad thoughts then you wouldn't be worrying about if you enjoyed them, you would have no guilt in what you were thinking and you'd indulge in them and hide that fact.
