Hello,

Yesterday my OCD fears managed to creep into a dream I had. I was standing there like talking to myself as in reality over and over worrying about something in my head. It was a dream though. Like even thinking about OCD in the dream?! This has really annoyed me. OCD bothers me in the day, now even ruining a dream last night.

I really enjoy my dreams because the majority of the time their is no pain there and they take me to a happy place and certainly not OCD, I am usually so free in my dreams enjoying myself but now OCD came in my dream last night, and anxiety in dreams? This has really upset me.

Does anyone else suffer from this? Has anyone had OCD in their dreams?

I don't know if this will be helpful but I actually came across a vlog on youtube talking about this today strangely enough. Hope this is helpful. https://youtu.be/7FJJc3OsC1Q

Hey,

Very helpful, I just watched all the video. I can totally relate to what he says. Thank you so much for this. Glad to see I am not alone on this.

That's ok just remember that for every OCD struggle you have chances are a million others experience it themselves even though it can seem like it's something unique to you that's weird. You're never alone.

Happens for me all the time if I'm going through a bad phase I will have nightmares every night. It's rubbish can't even get a rest from my head in my sleep x
