Hello everyone this is my first post! I just want some help and advice if possible? I think I may have OCD... it all started around the age of 15-16 when I was most anxious due to sitting my GCSE's it then wasn't so bad until May last year when I had a miscarriage since then it's been unbearable! I have a few things that sets what I think could be OCD off.. one of them being when my fiancé is working on a late I am the only one home I have to check EVERY door at least 5 times to check it's locked 😞 This includes the garage doors! I also have to recheck the fridge door and the oven and hobs have been turned off as if I don't preform these rituals the house will burn down or someone will break into my house! Another thing is my hair dryer/straighters i have once tried to beat these horrid thoughts about my house burning down but this only made me more anxious and I had to re drive home and check! I have to leave my car in first gear as well as my hand break as I'm worried it will roll into the road.. I cannot sit down without horrid thoughts entering my mind.. if I can see something like a dirty item of laundry that I've dropped on the way to the washing machine I have to put this in the same wash even if it's already half way through as if I don't I get a horrid thought tell me my fiancé will crash his car or something.. I have to hoover my carpet in the same direction so I get perfect lines as if I don't I get a thought to say my dog will die.. I don't know why I get them I don't know what to do to make it better 😞 I want to go to the doctors but I'm worried that they'll section me or it will affect my job or future jobs or careers?
