So the way my ocd works is that the compulsions are based around decisions I make. For example “post this photo on Facebook or you will break a leg” this can happen with any decision but it only counts if I fully “hear” the thought. Not sure if that’s makes sense.

I have been doing better the last few days, checking if I have had these thoughts less and sitting with the anxiety until ocd found a loop hole today.

Recently I start worry that I’m saying these thoughts out loud and not realising. Making them more likely to happen. I was checking and normally coming to the conclusions I couldn’t remember saying it out loud so probably didn’t. Now how every my ocd keeps telling me “what if you said it out loud and instantly forgot” which is freaking me out. Now before I would only do the compulsion if I knew I definitely heard/said the thought but now I feel like I want to always do them just I case I said my intrusive thoughts out loud Even if I haven’t heard the full thought in my head (hope this makes sense) I don’t know how to get past this one because now any decision I make I’m scared I’ve said I had to do a certain thing and can’t remember

still struggling with this today keep thinking I have said these things on purpose then forgot. One of them I'm worried I just said I can't actually do so now I'm scared the bad thing will happen. And because I said it could happen "until" I do it then It could happen at any point in my life..great

Hi kitkat

I have strange sorts of thoughts too - having to touch things or step a certain way or count to the correct number of something bad will happen to me or my family. I understand it's very hard. I hope you feel a bit better soon.

Hi! Sorry, I don't know much about OCD, though I do suffer from some obsessions and think I can imagine how much it messes one's life. My first question would be: do you take any meds and/or go to therapy?
