OCD: Obsession to document everything



New member
Nov 6, 2016
I still haven’t found a solution about this, but I’ve an obsession in documenting everything in my life through photos and videos.

Especially moments with my girlfriend, I feel like I need to have pictures/videos of every moment between us. It started with just some special moments and now I need to collect everything and I feel really bad if I don’t do it.

What should I do? I live in London and I’m trying to get a therapist through NHS, but I’m still waiting right now and I don’t know if I can cope with this by myself.

Thank you!

Hi Mike. I'm sorry you are stuck on this but you yourself know that you must LET GO. No one can do this for you. Analyze it. What are you trying to do by recording every moment ??
