So I have OCD, cptsd and eating disorder and I'm female. The problem atm is the OCD. These thoughts of killing ppl has been changed to urges and now I find myself watching snuff porn to see if I get aroused. I'm scared I'm turning into someone /something terrible. I feel like I should be locked up and not be allowed out in society. What should I do?

One of the keys to OCD is reductionism. Thoughts and urges do come and go. I wouldn't worry about it unless it is a problem in which case you could ask for an anti-psychotic. I don't recommend watching the snuff porn though, as that is a choice, and I think you will be better off without it.

Thank you for the reply. I'm currently on an antipsychotic, olanzapine. I don't want porn for enjoyment that's for sure. It's more like I use it to research whether or not I'm a psycho. Could be just feeding my worries though do I get what you are saying. What do you mean by reductionist?

With ocd most of these feelings of hurting or harming will never come in to fruition. If you can rationalise that these intrusions are just that and that you don’t want to act on them then will help. Though if you are genuinely worried then consult your healthcare provider

I think the action of watching this stuff is kinda OCD in itself. I mean basically you are doing this for some kind of reassurance. It can be really hard to distinguish I think between exposure and ocd behaviour. Cuz I think a lot of times we can fall into the habit of using exposure as a way of checking. Just my opinion but I think your behaviour should be as natural as possible.

I think you are right, I'm checking to make sure I'm not a psychopath. But, what do you mean by "your behavior should be as natural as possible"?

What I mean is the OCD is making you act in a way that is kind of unnatural. I mean you never did enjoy watching things like this. This is not something you have to do. Sometimes we go the other extreme and try to avoid things, and other times it pulls us in the direction where you do strange things because it makes you feel like you have to prove something.
