Hi all,I'm no stranger to ocd and it's themes .
I've overcome a few themes over the years and lived I would say somewhat ocd free for many years. However since a few weeks anxiety has heightened maybe due to being pregnant and thus I find myself dealing with previous harm ocd thoughts . Anyway I have a question. Am I right in saying ocd can cause the brain to also bring up Random words, phrases, conversations,images. Just out of the blue? I could be doing something completely normal and bam a random word like "haha" or some song o heard from earlier would just pop into my head . And because I wasn't expecting this random word or thought I would Question if it's ocd again? Hope this makes sense. The words or thoughts just seem so real and loud. I also get the most random mind chatter completely not related to anything whatsoever. Again I then Question what the hell is going on? Previously I remember I would just let this sit as background noise regardless of its wierdness but at times I feel like I am just battling with inner random thoughts unable to let go and let my mind do whatever it wants. Anyway any help would be great xx haven't posted here before

Hi and welcome.
These Random words, Phrases, Conversations, images seem completely normal to me.
As a long time suffer of ocd i've learnt that everyone gets these type of thoughts, the only difference is people without ocd don't worry about them and people with ocd Ruminate and React to them so causing the problem.So i would Certainly advise don't React or Ruminate about it.
I hope this helps.
