Hey guys just lookingredients for a bit of advice really. I’ve started sixth format that this year and thought I was doing really well. I could go to bed without having to touch my light switch 7 then my mirror 6 times and tell myself that I didn’t want anything bad to happen. But my exams are coming up now and it has come back worse than ever. I don’t know why I touch things and do things many times the number changes each time. It could be 6 because it’s even or 11 because it’s prime. I just get the overwhelming feeling that something bad will happen if I don’t do it ( normally I’m scared of throwing up or catching the ‘germs’ from somebody that’s my biggest phobia). Writing this down now it’s stupid and I know that it makes no logical sense but I can’t stop myself in the moment. I’ve never been diagnosed with OCD or even talked about this with somebody, but I’ve had enough I’m tired of having to start an essay again because I made one spelling mistake. Please somebody tell me what to do. I also find it incredibly difficult to hold conversations. For example I have found a new best friend she’s amazing but I’m scared to talk to her sister incase I say something stupid and she hates me then I’ll loose her. Now she just thinks that I’m a freak who doesn’t talk to anyone.

    hi. I have had OCD forever it seems. I have lots of bedtime checking rituals that I am always working on resisting. If you are on your own without a therapist it is very hard. definitely would recommend the book by Jonathan Gray called “Freedom from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder.” hang in there and keep resisting. it can get easier.
