Lightning McQueen was on a track team with people. He was in a race against another school on Saturn and the race was on the planet’s rings.
Can someone please give me more cars 3 lighting x storm, like please?! It’s such a good ship but so disregarded.
So relevant to the last post, I do have to say that currently I am really finding the overlap of OCD and C-PTSD very amusing because as it is, due to having OCD, I have a lot of repetitive tracks going on in my head randomly.
Some are mundane like the aforementioned “Do you have negative thoughts about Lightning McQueen” “Lightning McQueen” “Kachow” “Lightning McQueen” “KAchow” “Say Kachow” “Say the meme its repeating so you have to say it” “Kachow” “Do you have negative thoughts about Lightning McQueen”. The loops are a bit amusing, not the hardest to ignore / let pass, and at worse are annoying, distracting, and make me feel the need to verbally say it to get it out of my head for a bit.
Some are more graphic and concerning like repetitive rambles about my insecurities, or questioning my quality / moral standings as a human, or images that make me worried I did something bad or images and thoughts about having not washed my hands enough to be safe or, recently, very graphic images that in itself aren’t flashbacks but are very easily able to trigger memories.
Those ones it is very vital for me to not feed into. They aren’t fun to think about. They aren’t typically productive. They usually aren’t based and they usually jsut get me into very bad mental health spirals, damage my self esteem, gaslight myself, and do just a lot of bad. I was in treatment for OCD longer / before I was in treatment for DID and I’ve learned a lot to get better at not tending to the problematic repetitive cycling thoughts.
And since it has been going over and over for several hours now, I have spent the past several hours really working to *not* look at the graphic images and *not* pay attention even when it zooms in and tries to add my sensory details and to just not feed into it and cater to the thought on the account that if I paid more attention to it, it would 1) Worsen and elaborate the obsessive repetitive thought and concept 2) Capture me deeper into the cylcing circle and 3) Definitely trigger me into an actual flashback
And I do notice it is interesting that my mind can cycle not-personal triggering items and images in my mind without innately triggering me as long as I treat it like any other OCD intrusive thought, but can add the caveat of having his best friend next door PTSD add weight to it.
I’m honestly glad for the most part I have a lot of experience dealing with intrusive repetitive thoughts and have only really had limited miniture flashbacks because ThankYouGroundingTechniques, but it is a bit amusing / interesting to see the two dysfunctions work together.
It is even more amusing to see the same function working against it though - as seen in the previous post about how Lightning McQueen is really replaying in my head and sometimes blocking out the graphic images - and just kind of laughing at how weird my mind is.
Man though, co-morbid mental health is a trip sometimes. Also man its been ages since I talked about my OCD.
kacchako you mean Lighting McQueen’s catchphrase
