Hello everyone. Last year an intrusive thought came to my mind if my mum calls until 10 o’clock I should harm her. Since then I’m in panic constantly anxious and miserable. Last month I was watching a tv series on tv and I thought if they say now Mrs Sophie the sign to harm my mum is valid. And like all coincidences with ocd they indeed say the name Mrs Sophie! I’m miserable I can’t stop being anxious my boss has warned me that I’m not as productive as I was, all I wanna do is stay in bed. Can anyone relate?

I can relate...every thought going through my head makes me want to repeat something or do a ritual. Im sorry you are going through this because it is so painful...

I believe staying in bed is the most natural answer to the OCD when it bothers us so deeply, we stop enjoying everything we previously did and the anxiety affects our concentration intensely to the point we can even have memory or speech lapses or worse.

Staying in bed always feels like a safe place to hide, to stay away from it all, I can relate to that, there were days I would stay in bed for 15 hours, I remember once staying in bed for 24hours until I couldn't anymore, but after a few months doing that I became so tired of it that I decided to face some problems, I kind of faced my OCD with success in January for two weeks then it came back strong again, but without all the previous symptoms, however most of them staying, and slowly coming back, then I faced it again a few months later and I thought I was healed, for a week... then I got back to bed and suffering, so once again I faced my fears early october, and I've managed to overcome most of them, however the fear of leaving my bedroom and passing close to strangers or my father is still strong, and slowly some other fears are coming back and of course, I'm terrified again.
