I am new here so hi everyone
I have been suffering with contamination OCD for the last 3 years and now I have become so aware of it and finally decided to seek help. (Seeing a psychologist at the moment.)
So basically I am not afraid of falling ill or dying from germs but when I am in contact whether is by touching or by just being around things like doorknobs, bins, public facilities I get this anxious feeling that I need to wash my hands or shower asap.
Anyone else out there with this type of OCD? If so I would like to hear about your thoughts and compulsions and also about how do you cope with this.
