My OCD is increasingly getting worse, I just don’t know what to do. My CPN has been trying to help me reduce my checks but I’m finding it so hard, I can’t seem to reduce them, all I do is end up increasing them (not intentionally).
can anyone suggest anything that has helped you or just give me some ideas? Idk. I’m trying. This is all too much .

Hi are you taking medication? I also have ocd I take zoloft can't say it helps slot though. I try to make myself stop the checking by walking away. I know how awful it is.

Hi, I’m on medication, it’s more for my depression and anxiety but yes, I am. I’m on Venlafaxine and diazepam.
The thing is, due to this pandemic it’s become harder to walk away because often my OCD will use the pandemic as fuel if you know what I mean.
The voice will tell me things like “if you don’t check this (x) amount of times then your family will get Covid and die” so I feel like I have to do it. In a way I feel to some extent that I’m protecting them. Yes, it really is awful and I’m sorry you’re struggling with it too.

I found out that our OCD if we got psychological damage, it will increase very very bad.
Me in 2018 my OCD decreased very low because i have alot fun time with my ex, in 2020 when we break up it come to me even more worse.

I agree. My OCD symptoms started approximately 2 weeks after I recovered from COVID, which was a very stressful time for me. I often wonder if the two things might be linked in some way. I also believe the pandemic in general allows OCD to creep up way more easily than normal because we have extraaa time to think.
