So at first when I got these thoughts about sexual and aggressive the as well as others I was scared i didn't want them I replaced images i got with different ones it helped for a little bit but it got worse. It's been over a year and a bit now I cried and was sad about the last thoughts I got but now I don't feel like that. I don't feel scared of anxious anymore why? Then I started to think is it because the thoughts are me. I mean they feel so real now and then I got to start obsessing is that why I'm not scared of anxious?I'm just looking for any answers or help is this normal

Taurus,

It happens when you have been obsessing over a certain subject for a long time. I am in the same boat.

The first few months I was paying attention to the OCD too much and that would get an emotional response from me, which I thought was necessary penance for me to appease the OCD in order for it to leave me alone for a while. The problem is, you constantly feel worn out and anxious because you’re constantly feeding it with an emotional/physical ritual/response.

I have found after saying ‘I don’t care, let it happen’ and just ignoring it. The more you do that, the easier it is for you to disregard the need to appease the OCD with a response.

The thing is, it’s still in your head, you are just de-sensitised to the actually issue, even though you still feel terrible and want it gone completely.

It passes eventually, keep your head up.
