anyone else deal with thoughts that are hard and intrusive? like a small one is that work is stupid and I'm wasting my life. however I also have other thoughts like wanting to open the car door when going down the highway at 70mph i think I also struggle with OCD and it's manifesting in a different way lately

      When intrusive thoughts happen I try to accept the thought and move on. I try to imagine the thought in a river and it floating away

      Oof, those can be scary to deal with. I’ve heard that simply acknowledging the intrusive thought without judging it as good or bad helps for it to pass

      Yeah, my intrusive thoughts are really hard. I’ve heard it can help to imagine that voice as an edgy teenager in a Call of Duty server so you can name it and tell it to shut up.
