I have OCD, which is mostly around rumination and mental ritualization. Recently there was a day where I ruminated on one thing for an hour. Then around 2-3 hours later I ruminated on another thing for an hour.
It's exhausting and stressful having to go over things in my mind.
I also day dream and so this with rumination are things that my brain switches to, easily. Staying in reality takes effort, more than it used to.

Has anyone experience these sorts of things?

The same cycle of thoughts continue in my mind and it causes me stress. I wish I could just have a blank mind, and be in constant bliss but i think it is normal.
Sorry I have not had much experience with OCD.

I did have an old boss who said he had OCD but I don't know what his symptoms were.
