Default My ocd has pissed me off once again

My ocd has managed to make me feel angry once again. I was in the car with someone and they were driving me somewhere. In my mind, I predicted that I would get there by 12:43 pm even though I didn't want to. But I was there by that time but got out at 12:44 pm. It is still bothering me two hours ago. I wrote something similar on another site but got no help (probably because they don't ****in care).

I'm feeling angry because I'm worried that I can predict the future. If I predicted the time that I would arrive somewhere and it turned out to be true, then it makes me feel like my mind is getting signs from the universe. I cant tell if its magical thinking or the universe talking to me.

I feel extremely mad that I may be able to predict bad things to happen.

I'm having a hard time moving on with the day. How do I move on with my day, despite feeling angry?

Well... it's been a few days since you posted this. I hope you're doing at least a bit better. You wrote you were feeling angry & wondered how to move on with your day. Perhaps you figured that out for yourself? I struggle with a lot of anger too. And, in my case, what I do is to simply strive to accept what I am feeling with mindfulness & compassion & then forge ahead with doing whatever else needs to be done. I, at least, find that as time goes by my anger tends to subside. This doesn't always work though. When it doesn't something such as going for a long walk is the best I can do.

Thanks for taking the time to reply.

I was frustrated with the lack of replies so I posted it on other sites as well. I know I haven't been on here in a while but I'm glad you cared enough to respond, which I appreciate. But I compulsively looked up info on the web and it only resulted in feeling worse. So I decided to stop it at some point and move on with the day. So I did figure it out. I will definitely utilize what said.

Thanks for your reply.
