I have the same OCD tentacles as Hannah but I'm not doing the things the ocd tells me to.
My brain tells me to do them when I'm stressed but I came so far ( read books about ocd and am in therapy) that I can say to those thoughts:

"Absolutely not, nice try ocd" and I can remember the past times I refused and nothing bad happened. So I know the ocd is lying to me.

My ocd thoughts are also better now but it was harder with them.
