Hi! I have ocd about washing my things. Its not about scaring bakteries or anything like that. I feel like i have to purife my life with washing things. Its about one thing that happened years ago and now i have to wash all my things that i had then and that i have might touched. I feel those things are dirty and i cant touch them or i have to wash my hands. Thats why i wash things that i could one day touch everything in my home and live normally. This is very hard because i feel like i cant live if i dont purify my things of past. Please help me!

Hi Girl96,
Welcome to the forum,
I'm sorry you have OCD and are struggling, have you ever tried any specialist therapy?
Hugs

Hi,
I'm sorry to hear, how long have you been having therapy and the meds?
