Hi everyone, i have finally felt like I’m in control of my intrusive thoughts so thought I’d share some things that haven helped me massively. - getting help/speaking to people. I felt that this took away the power from the thoughts and stopped then be being a ‘dirty little secret’-mindfulness. It took me a while to get into this but honestly it is amazing. There’s a 30 day mindfulness challenge on YouTube which i do every night to ground myself which i found really helped!
I lost both brothers last year. My most recent one in September. By October I was experiencing symptoms of POCD. I haven’t been able to fully grieve and fail to even fully accept my brothers death. I feel like my pocd May have been brought on by the amount of grief I have suffered but I can’t be sure. I worry it’s been there all along (not that I remember it) or that I’m using grief as an excuse.If anyone has any ideas pls lemme know
IDoes anyone else feel like you over come a thought/feeling and then it is replaced by something worse? I could obsess over something for a while eg. Thinking something or worrying about doing something and then I’ll sort of get over it and then it’ll be replaced by an even worse thought. I think I’ve finally got to the bottom of all my thoughts just one at the moment which is a hard one to get through.
