Hi, I'm new to this site and was wondering if anyone has similar symptoms to me? I live in a constant state of fear and anxiety at varying levels, I have been suffering since January and feel it is dogging my every step. It always starts with a nasty thought, usually related to crimes against children, I then worry that I will never get the thought out of my head. It sometimes gets so bad that everything I look at I seem to be able to connect to this subject which then exacerbates my panic. I don't want to be thinking about such a horrible subject but it feels like all I do is think about thinking it!! I feel like a mad person. I have a lovely life and family and feel so bad that I can't enjoy it. Help anyone?
