      Hi everyone:

      This is SO much easier said than done, but I really think you all should cut yourself some slack. Although it isn’t my main ‘theme’ I’ve def had thoughts spiral before, and I think a huge chunk of this forum has too. It’s terrible when you start to doubt yourself, but the main thing to remember is the fact that ocd has obviously made you distressed enough to come on here and post about it – so it’s definitely not something you want at all, and isn’t reflective of you. It’s awful when these ‘what IF tho!’ thoughts are haunting us, but they’re literally just that – random thoughts and they don’t mean anything at all.
