Hello, all! So I'm new here but certainly not new to the struggles associated with a mental health disorder. I've had some form of OCD for almost 30 years now. Began with contamination and took about 20 years to get under control....now I mainly suffer from intrusive thoughts, rumination, and mental compulsions not physical. I deal with real event OCD and false memory OCD as well. When I was at work today I had an intrusive thought telling me that one of the ingredients I used would probably kill someone who is allergic. I immediately had the panic of needing to tell my boss, my compulsion is mostly the need to confess or find the answer immediately. I didn't give in! I rode out the wave! It's the little things!

Yes...way to tough it out! Goes to reiterate the saying, “This, too, shall pass.”
