Hi there, I am new to this site but I am really pleased to see it becuaseit is something that I feel is needed.¬† A space to be able to explore things that are worrying us without fear of being judged or being identified.¬† My problem is that I think I am developing OCD.¬† It;s nothing really major at the moment, at least I don’t think it is, it’s not like I can’t funtion or have to go back a hundred times to make sure the door is locked, but it is creeping up.¬† I sometimes think it might be that I am getting forgetfull but then I don’t like the implications of that either!¬† The kind of things I do are thinking that I have left the cooker on and even if I am pretty sure I have turned it off, I have to go and check.¬† I am also obsessed with having all the items in my wardrobe colour and length coordinated. ¬† Can anyone tell me if there is an acceptable level of OCD or is it always something to worry about and seek treatment for?

I know that it can be very worrying when you think something is going wrong and your behaviour is changing. ¬† I am sure that a certain amount of OCD or what might be called ‘attention to detail’ is normal but if you are worried there are therapists who¬† specialise in treating OCD and I am sure that the site will help to put you in touch with one of them.¬† Good luck and let us know what happens.

Hi Mickey and I think you have done the right thing by reaching out.  I am so pleased we have this space to write down our fears and our feelings and find other people who can help or at the least understand and empathise with us.  I agree with Denvor that  the best thing to do would be to try and get the help of a therapist specialising in this area.  It may not be as bad as you think and getting the help will make you feel a whole lot better.

HI Mickey, I just wanted to say that you are not alone! It can be a real struggle but when I reached out for help it was a relief, and I was told about what can help. It wasn’t easy to tackle my OCD, and I had to challenge myself a lot with the support of my kind therapist. Sometimes I think the OCD might be coming back but I remind myself about what helped me, and try not to stress out too much about it. Hope you’re doing ok, and do ask for help if you need it!¬†
