      Hi please let me know if there’s anyone who can talk. I’m really going through it at the moment. My OCD was in remission before this pretty much. I had a bad trip from weed and it’s awful again like it was years ago when it first showed up. I’m having obsessive and intrusive thoughts about hurting my cat and even urges to. I love my cat so much. Why did this happen to me. I feel the safest and the least anxious when I’m asleep. If I’m awake it’s like I need a comfort blanket like a podcast or a movie or a phone call. I’ve never been through anything this bad. This is a new low for me. I keep imagining the most horrible things and scenarios. Please somebody help if you can. I am genuinely suffering. This is so much pain and fear to feel. The last time I posted on here was years ago. What can I do to make the thoughts go away? I’m trying to just sit with it and desensitize myself to it but it is so hard and scary. I have a therapist and I’m on medicine. Just went up on my meds and thinking that should help a bit. Please I love my cat and I can’t live with this new theme
