How do you manage your OCD?

      It's kind of hard to explain it. But I'll try. My OCD is triggered by my conversion disorder. My 🧠 automatically goes to .... 5s practices, blueprints, arts of all kinds. When I notice myself repeating my behaviors, I immediately try and give my hands and mind something to do together. For instance, I have a circle shag pastel rug in my room that I consider my personal bubble. I guess you could refer to it as my grounding circle/space. In that space I do a variety of things from yoga to thai chi (spelling) no matter what I choose to do to keep my body busy, my focus goes to diaphragmatic breathing.

      I feel/hear you about intrusive thoughts. My thoughts come out in almost a visually rehearsed way.... Very precise movements. It's very painful if I don't find a way to distract myself. It's hard sometimes because I have different diagnosis' that antagonizes each other, so trying to find a common ground is rather difficult.

      Makes sense . I guess with the OCD that I have which is pure O OCD I don’t really have things like that … for me it’s more intrusive thoughts that present themselves in so many different way and give me lots of guilt and depression.
