That's the OCD making you doubt. However I'm the same and I'm still trying to get am official diagnosis but nobody quite seems to know how to go about it! I think maybe a psychiatrist might be able to but I've not seen one on the nhs yet.

Its so hard to have to deal with this every day of life specially when not many understand

Some just want to prescribe medication like umm can you let me finish explaining ughh

The meds can help to get it under control.....It's reduces the anxiety making you worry less about the thoughts and therefore gradually experience less thoughts because you attach less importance to them. Then with the help of CBT you can gradually reduce and come off the meds x

Hi mommyyof02 I am the same your not alone on any of this sweetheart your not a bad person at all and please ano it’s hard but try to remember they are just thoughts you will never acted on them it says that no one in history has ever acted out on there thoughts with ocd are you from the uk? If so the is help out there don’t be afraid to ask are if your from the USA the is a lot more help you will get past this please believe me av seen loads of posts on here that people have got past it & I am sure you will hun good luck xx

I really think that you could do with some medication. It isn't the only solution, but you are suffering so much that it's worth giving it a go just to dampen down the worst of it.

The standard medication for OCD is an SSRI antidepressant. They are not addictive, and most people tolerate them well. They do take a few weeks to work, but you'd be surprised at how much better they can make you feel.

Please don't think you're made. It is OCD, and no matter how much you think you are crazy, you are not! And there is no way that you are a bad person. Don't let OCD make you think you are.

I know how strong such intrusive thoughts can be. It's like having someone sit on your shoulder saying, 'Go on, I dare you!' and however much you know you won't there is still the little doubt in your mind that you might. This happens to most people occasionally, but with OCD it can take over your life. But be assured that you really won't.

I have recently been given SSRI tablets for my OCD & Anxiety and can honestly say they have helped. I would suggest speaking to your GP.
