      So I just had an ocd moment.. my daughter had her head in my shoulder and all of a sudden I started to worry about intrusive thoughts. Well of course I start kind trying to make sure I don’t have one and stop it from happening. But doing that and worrying always makes me have intrusive thoughts ? at one point the weird thought almost felt real but it’s hard to describe! I can’t go down this rabbit hole of guilt again. Anyone relate?
