Really struggling today. Keep playing the memory back and now I'm convinced that my real memory that I've sworn by for years is now a lie. Convinced that I've known I've done something wrong for years but somehow forgotten what it is so I'm now trying to remember a memory about remembering what I've done, does this happen with anyone else?
Does anyone else suffer with this? I am ruminating constantly but I have small pockets of relief where I feel okay for a minute and tell myself 'I haven't done anything wrong' before I drop back into my pit of worry. It is literally a few seconds or a minute a few times a day. Is this normal?
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'?
You really must see a health care professional about how you are feeling, if nobody close to you is aware of how you are struggling and you are trying to deal with this on your own then it will understandably feel overwhelming for you.
