Hi. I won't put my real name, so, on here I've decided to go with the nickname: manny_the_damned, because I feel cursed in this reality

I used to be religious - but then my OCD manifested hardcore as anti-religious violent thoughts seeming to come from an alien source. I knew nothing of mental illness back then, my dad was abusive & kept me sheltered from the wider world..the content of the thoughts along with the feeling they weren't my own legitimately made me believe I was possessed by a demon, until I saw a commercial about OCD that described to a T what I was going through. Been in and out of therapy/meds since age 15..I am 38 now and feel no different. I am on here to ask questions from people more knowledgeable than I about my conditions so that I can gain better insight about myself, and if I can help sufferers myself. I said conditions because I've also been diagnosed with Depression and PTSD. Thank you.

Hmm...this is the first time I've ever heard someone describe unwanted thoughts as coming from an alien, which is how it feels for me, too. In any case, it's nice to meet you. :) I'm new also.
