aah can't believe it's already October! i'm genuinely so ready for this year to be over; it's been one of the worst imo...
- manifestation can be very triggering for OCD sufferers. people with OCD- mainly magical thinking- tend to believe that even doing so much as thinking a bad thought can make their life "ruined". they fear manifesting bad things into their life, so this is why manifestation can be triggering.
(this isn't really a huge one like manifestation or chain-mail, but it *can* be equally as triggering.)
3. getting perfectionism/other disorders mixed up with OCD
- like i said, this one really isn't that big of a deal, but it definitely can make an OCD sufferer feel highly invalidated. remember, OCD isn't having anxiety or being scared to go shopping. OCD also isn't getting mad when your colored pencils aren't organized.
- again, not one that "triggers", per se, but it can also make an OCD sufferer feel invalidated. people with OCD know that their compulsions are irrational, so telling them to "not do it" isn't gonna help. instead, offer comfort and a listening ear. letting with someone OCD vent to you can help tons!
i hope this list helps some people understand OCD better; OCD is extremely infuriating and debilitating and it deserves to have more people understanding it better. <3
