My Subconscious Knows

The last few days I've been feeling really good regarding my OCD, making the right choice when faced with the chance to avoid.

Then last night I had a dream just full of OCD themes. It's all sort of vague now 12 hours later, but I know it at the very least involved an accidental pregnancy and dealing with my mom contaminating my environment.

Then of course today I was reminded that my OCD isn't magically gone in real life anyway. Oh, well, it was still a nice couple of days.


  1. Ugh, I hate it when symptoms creep back in after a good few days or a week. What gets me through the bad times is doing my best to put off my worry, and also remembering that I've had good days in the past, so there's no reason I couldn't have another in the future! :)

  2. I'm glad you enjoyed the days of feeling good about your OCD, and you'll have more days like that. Too bad it doesn't magically disappear!

  3. Sorry about the OCD dream. I hate those. A big struggle for me was when I finally realized the chronic nature of OCD. That was a big bummer. But, as time has gone on, I've been able to accept it better, though I sometimes still get mad about it.

    I'm glad you had a couple of good days and I hope you have lots more!

  4. I hate OCD dreams too. Especially when you've had a few good "conscious" days. You seem to be accepting it all so well though - that's half the battle.

  5. It is normal to have dreams from our daily life that are bothers us from inside. But, if you continue to work on yourself they will be gone too. Stay positive Ann!
