      I have had ocd for many years. All sorts of intrusive thoughts and themes. I had a moment the other morning that freaked me out and need some insight. I was asleep and dreaming and when I woke for a split second I let myself continue the dream I was having. It was in no way harmful in any way but the fact that I let myself keep that makes me feel like I did something terrible. My brain just won’t let it go

          If you would like someone to talk to you can always reach out to me on DM and I can try to help you some. What you need to do is not fight the thoughts so much, try to take them in and actually examine the motivations behind them. They have power over you probably because you are running from them and rejecting them, try to actually take them in and analyze them
