hi! I was just wondering if you have found ways to subside OCD symptoms or tics?

      I take a medication that's quite helpful for mine.

      I get a song stuck in my head. If there's a thought or rumination bothering me, I try to get a song to take that place and drown it out

      I was wondering what your tics are, I didn’t know OCD had them but now that I think about it, I have random shivers even when I’m not cold. I’ve found grounding myself and deep breaths helps.

        @Han5011 OCD isn't correlated with tics. You can have one without the other, having both isn't related. Shivers aren't a typical tic, you can also have shivers even when not cold 😊. Myself, I have tourettes and OCD and know they are not correlated. As far as grounding for ocd, I find allowing myself to count up to a certain number helps. Like allowing myself to count 10 squares, lines, colors, ext. Helps to focus my mind.
