    What random intrusive thoughts do you have?

    I'm not sure I totally agree with this - the intrusive thought of "maybe the door isn't locked" is not one I would be troubled to admit to, but has nonetheless caused me great distress in the past. Pretty much any random thought can be seized upon by OCD - and I suppose the point of this thread is to demonstrate that we all have millions of bizarre and random thoughts throughout the day, and these are no different to OCD ones other than how we react to them.
  3. I can't stop chuckling at the image of this I get similar to these. Often I think I might punch my (very nice indeed) neighbour when I see him in the street.

    ah OK I see. So really these aren't OCD intrusions at all - just normal garbage thoughts which once upon a time would have distressed you? Which is the ultimate aim of therapy and credit to your hard work

    Just out of curiosity, how are you defining "OCD intrusions"? (As opposed to any other intrusion?)

    One thing I find is that I get less "random" thoughts when in the middle of an OCD episode... my brain constantly gravitates towards whatever is distressing me. (Or maybe I only notice the distressing ones.)

    some others: - maybe I'll grow a beard one day - what if other countries don't really exist and going on holiday is an illusion? - i wish I knew how to make pastry - how many legs do a giraffe have? (while looking at a figurine of a giraffe )

    Upcoming holiday

    I am feeling tentatively positive but do keep getting flashes of anxiety. There was a situation between my partner and I during our last holiday which was really distressing at the time. Going on holiday is making me relive it, as well as worrying that it will come up again this time.

    Found the old thread - just had a proper good belly laugh reading it! (which was needed after the England match!)

    I remember a similar thread like this, I remember finding it enlightening seeing what random garbage people's brains come up with!
