Please help! Ocd at work thinking i wrote something inapprop

Postby Thatdude109 » Thu May 17, 2018 2:25 am

work on computer
- job requires taking many of the same notes over and over again
- keep having fears that when I'm tired and not paying attention I accidently wrote words that would get me fired

Plz tell me no one would actually do this while on auto pilot ? But for some reason I still struggle with the fear .

I've even gone back to check my notes and every time they were normal , but I still worry . I am evening on vacation now and worrying about what I wrote even though it's most likely fine. Please help

One of the things that used to help and really work for me is visualization. I would visualize myself doing things correctly and say to myself that I have done them correctly. Then I would sit with that correctness for a little while. Later when the intrusive thoughts would come I would close eyes (if possible) and visualize the correctness and its feeling. It was hard at first but was really helpful for when I couldn’t return to a place right away or at all.
