Intrusive Thoughts - Worrying about intrusive thoughts

In this episode, I discuss the two different types of worry with intrusive thoughts. The first type of worry is worrying about events or situations that could happen. A few examples of this could be worrying about getting sick, losing a job, or some other negative event taking place. The second type of worry is worrying about the presence of thoughts in your conscious awareness. An example of this is when a person worries that they may experience a specific intrusive thought so they spend a great deal of time trying to make sure they don't experience certain intrusive thoughts.

OCD Recovery - My Recovery From OCD

https://www.restoredminds.com/5-Rules-For-Recovery

In this video, I talk about my journey to recovery from OCD and the OCD treatment process. The most noticeable problem with OCD is that you can get stuck in a loop of obsessive thoughts and compulsions.
