  1. This is a classic OCD scenario. A friend of mine used to say write the headlines with your ocd worries and you realise it just doesn’t happen like that. For example... ‘man contracts disease through stepping in blood bringing it into his house dropping his keys and picking them up’ thats not how it happens. pick up the keys, distract yourself through that awful feeling.
  2. This is really unhelpful and just feeding Bodge’s anxiety. Distract yourself through the horrible feelings and wait for it to pass Bodge, as I said go back to the facts we don’t contract things the way your brain is wanting you to think or we would almost all be infected. You need reassurance because you have OCD not for any other reason.
  3. Bodge, You state you have not had unprotected sex or used drugs so use the facts. What evidence do you have that you have contracted anything? OCD is playing tricks on you and it will continue to do so until you challenge it. I know you are scared but it’s OCD making you feel that way not anything else.
  4. Hi Elsalauren, The biggest thing I picked up on from your post is where you wrote ‘I focus on them’ so maybe instead of focusing on those horrible embarrassing thoughts, distract yourself, do something you really have to concentrate on until that nasty feeling subsides and when it returns (because they always return) distract again.
  5. Hi Lucy, Please go to see you GP. I understand completely that you may find it hard to be in the waiting room, maybe you could tell the receptionist that on the phone and ask if there is some way you could wait outside until your appointment? Maybe you could take someone and they could wait in the waiting room then let you know when it’s your appointment? I know this is avoidance but I think it’s important to get your eyes checked.
  6. Hi Jumbo, Firstly, it doesn’t matter if it was blood that you saw/stood in on the floor, do you think the other passengers of the bus are worried that they stood in blood? I can tell you that they’re not. I really feel for you and how much stress and anxiety it is causing you, believe me I have been there. I urge you to go back to your drs, maybe try another medication or ask for more help. Tell them that cbt hasn't worked for you, don’t give up on yourself you deserve to be well andyou can be well!
  7. So here I am again, some 12 years since my OCD kicked off, 4 years since I first felt I was able to cope with life, sitting on a plastic bag with my latex gloves on crying and shaking all because my husband has a sickness bug. Of course the lovely caring wife I am has just shouted at him for being sick, for washing his hands wrong, then come the endless questions of where was he sick, what did he touch, did he kiss the kids before bed. The poor bloke is ill and all I can do is go on at him. I know this will pass but now, right now I'm a horrible person, I hate this person
  8. I am a contamination ocd sufferer and am sat upstairs feeling really scared as my husband is downstairs feeling really poorly, frustrated that I can't be supportive and see if he is ok, rather than wish he would just go somewhere else I sound so horrible but I'm so scared he may pass a bug on to my children - wishing to just get through the night stress free why is everything always worse at night!

  10. Awww to my rescue thank you so much for replying. I hope I am doing it leg, only cleaned actual yucky things trying to distract myself, simply riding the storm! I will do this, OCD will upset me, but I will win! (I hope) As for this (null) thing I have NO idea???!!! Erm Ashley.... (null)
  11. Ps why do all my posts end in (null) ?? (null)
  12. Well I think this may be my annual post, my daughter has a tummy bug and I am freaking out!!! Poor little love feeling very poorly and my head is going in circles wanting to clean. I know everything will be ok but right now at this moment I am so scared! Support would be very welcome thank you all x (null)
  13. Hiya cam, I know you want answers and to know what to do to make the thought go away, trouble is you can't make the thought go away and by trying you are giving it more importance. These thoughts come and go like waves one min you will think it's ok the next there's those feelings again. So just sit with the thoughts and feelings when you get them wait for the anxiety to pass - cos it will! Each time the thoughts come back just think ok that thought again and ride it out. It is hard but by expecting to have the thought again and not questioning it will make it easier to deal with. Hope you have a lovely birthday x (null)
