I’m just here to remind you that if religious holidays are triggering for your scrupulosity or religious OCD, you are not alone.
If holidays are triggering for your harm OCD, you are not alone.
If holidays are triggering for your contamination OCD you are not alone.
Basically if holidays are hard for you, welcome to the club. OCD loves to ruin an occasion in more ways than one.
It can make you question if you are enjoying yourself as much as you should be or being as present as you could be.
It can flood you with thoughts of harm/violence because what could be worse than ruining a good time with some good old fashioned bloodshed??
It can make you wonder if you prepared the food safely enough for guests. (Yes it’s still pandemic but idk what ya’ll are doing.)
OCD can make you wonder anything under the sun but for some reason it loves holidays.
While OCD does have the power to incite discomfort it does not have the power to control what we do and how we choose to do it.
Bottom line, OCD sucks but you are strong, capable and NEVER ALONE.
Happy Easter Bunny Day everyone!
