      Ocd is something that wants to make you feel like a bad person to me that is it’s purpose.
      to overcome mine I had to allow the thoughts into my mind instead or trying to run them out once I allowed them in and then let the anxiety in  soon after the feeling and thought passed. Because I didn’t try stop it and worry about the thoughts happening I wasn’t validating my brain that something is wrong and therefore the thoughts and feeling eased.

      its like when someone tells you not to look you can’t help but look.
      The thoughts will come back harder because you’re trying to stop them.
      the more you allow them to come in and don’t tell yourself you’re a bad person the less they will frequently come.


      you also need to right a list of all the reasons you’re a good person it out ways the instructive thoughts and you realise that your thoughts don’t define you xx I how this helps and I hope you feel better soon

      get in touch with your doctor and try get cbt therapy it was what helped best for me
