      Hi there…I like to write down my ocd thoughts even though the thoughts say I am not allowed to! It feels like my ocd has rules I must follow. I am really struggling but hoping to move on shortly and start again. Anyone else like writing OCD thoughts down?


        If I were you I’d try not to write them down as it could become a compulsive activity. Try rather to let them be and let them go.
