Has anyone ever made a loop tape of general anxieties.  If so how did you do it.  My OCD is mostly just worries in general that repeat....

Hello, I have heard so much about loop tapes , I have yet to actually try it but I have read numerous books that  mention it and they all say it is very beneficial. I plan on trying it this week I will let you know how it goes.

I have had exposure therapy and a loop tape was used. It does work very well. I have unfortunalty switched obsessions to a "health concern" ( my obsession then was fear of hurting someone or myself)so I may have to go back and do another round of therapy for it (Heart Failure). But it does work. My therapist recorded his voice saying my worst fears as if i were actually commiting them, it was very hard to listen too for the first few days, then I was desensitized, mission complete.  Good Luck

 

The goal is to face the fear, look at it until it is not uncomfortable anymore, then repeat until you are bored with it.

but my question is this who wants to be desensitized to thoughts of harming someone you love? then those thoughts won't bother you. you don't want them period not to feed them though. I have this and I think exposure therapy is dangerous for this type of ocd.. just my opinion sorry. I get urges and thoughts like my arms are going to pick up a knife and harm someone I love. and then my mind feels like it is out of control happens every night before I go to sleep. I am on meds now but I have all kinds of side effects from them but they have helped me a lot. I don't think I'd still be here if I didn't take the meds.

Only thing that worked was exspoure thearpy works because because expousres you to the fear to the point you get used to it and the phyisloigcal reactions gradually go down from them .
