A lot of my OCD is mental obsessions, and compulsive thinking about them, mental “checking” on my ideas about myself and relationships, and, relationship obsessions and compulsions of needing reassurance that I am cared for.
but yes I also have behavioral rituals too, which I had REALLY bad at certain points, not so bad right now. I have magical thinking, where the intrusive thoughts tell me someone will die or suffer if I do not do a ritual to protect them, my responsibility. A lot of this is little repetitive things, number related things, and just following the OCD’s dictates. I had a breakdown over this in 2008.
