Is it Ocd trying to trick me with something new..

There's a phrase "if it feels like it might be OCD, then it is" - treat this like any other OCD theme.  Don't engage.

Sorry to hear you're unwell but glad to hear you're on the mend xx

So this is how it is: no medication will ever take away the thoughts. You need to attack te thoughts.

Thanks for your reply

I’m good thanks snow ❄️, its making you crazy because you are acknowledging it flower and placing importance on it, this is making you believe you have something to fear, let the thought go, each and every time you get the thought just let it float on by and don’t give it any attention, eventually it will subside but you have got to stick with it. Don’t try to answer or neutralise the thought by thinking that’s not true or I do like my daughter. Recognise it as the same thought and just carry on with what you are doing :yes:

Hope this helps you, lost x
