What are kalms?

Do consider taking meds. They can help to dampen down the OCD and make the CBT exercises easier.

It's clear that your 'bad wishes' about your family and other people aren't meant, or you wouldn't feel so awful about them. The thing with OCD is that while that weird and even cruel and horrible thoughts float in and out of just about everyone's mind, with OCD they become sticky and instead of floating out again they stay in your mind. They do that because you attach meaning to them, when in truth they really don't mean anything.

One technique that therapists use is to write on a piece of paper some really horrible 'bad wishes' about their own nearest and dearest. Obviously they don't mean it! They do it to prove that you can have such bad thoughts and they can mean nothing.

It's only because you care that these thoughts are so upsetting. I'm afraid that OCD likes to target what means most to us, and what we care most about, such as our families.
