I've suffered with OCD since my Nan died in 2007. It be the odd tap or opening and closing doors but since thenI feel like i have someone living inside my head. Telling me if i don't do something then something bad will happen. Like 1 of my family will die or I won't wake up in the morning.
I spend hours a day touching things. Making sure everything is straight. One of the biggest problems I have is checking that the 2 windows in my bedroom are fully locked. I've pressed the handle so much on the windows that one has fallen off.
The cooker and the tap in the kitchen ill stand and stare at them processing that both are off. In my head im speaking sayong "Off, off,off".
I have to take pictures on my phone of every plug, tap, cooker, window to make sure everything is turned off when i go out.
I got so bad that I had 2 weeks off A/L and when it was time to go back to work I starting getting anxiety attacks. My doctor thinks im just stressing over work and once i go back I be ok.
I cant live like this anymore. If i dont do what my head is telling me then it will keep going on and on till i do it. I need help, i need to over come this.
