so for about 3 months now i have been struggling with feeling like im losing it a little bit, this all started after watching a
movie called shutter island its about a man who has schizophrenia who belives that he is a detective but as the movie goes on
it is later shown that he is the delusional one, after watching the movie i was abit taken back by it and because pretty anxious
about my own mental state and started to think along the lines of long term delusions i might have had and started to analyse thoughts
coming into my head classifying any thought under brakets
researching for multiple hours for reasurance in an obsessive fashion
feel like im going crazy has anyone else with ocd had this ?

Sometimes we with OCD can obsesse so much on one particular illness that we begin to believe that we have it. If you think your delusional your probably not delusional because you have insight. People with schizophrenia don't sit around and wonder if their delusional, they don't have any insight into their illness, they think that their life is normal. Just the fact that your obsessing over schizophrenia and delusions is proof of your OCD. OCD is not only checking thing's or washing all the time, it's your mind questioning your sanity and obsessing over your sanity. It can be very overwhelming.
