    Song: “I Am More Than My Thoughts” by Jeyhan

    This past December, I was at a point where my contamination OCD was at its worse and I was having multiple panic attacks a day. The lyrics in the bridge of this song (“I am worthy of happy. I am worthy of love. I am worthy of laughter. I am worthy of fun/I am more than my thoughts. Them lies I won’t buy. I am a heart and a soul. I am one of a kind.”) were written mid-panic attack on a flight from D.C. to Miami for my spring semester of sophomore year in college. I kept repeating these lyrics to calm myself down throughout the flight. I also used this song during my recovery to remind myself that I am stronger than my OCD and I deserve to live a full life again. I hope it can help others that struggle with OCD as well!
