  1. I think it’s very common with ocd. It makes me look like Duracell bunny
  2. We all make mistakes and have regrets. It’s about learning from them and remembering you are human. You need to accept what’s done Is done and move on.
  3. This is your ocd working overtime. This idea is scientifically impossible
  4. Just attend the therapy and do any homework set. Be open minded.
  5. I do not have this problem but my brother certainly does. Really it doesn’t matter whether I do or not it’s ocd and the cleaning of the items is the compulsion.
  6. The only certainty in life is death. Which sounds terribley distressing but could also be seen as exciting. I find it hard to accept or embrace uncertainty. I know I must and I battle with myself about it.
  7. I suggest a gp review and maybe some therapy. You are ruminating about the situation which will not change it. You need to take control of your life.
  8. You said what you need to say to yourself. Like - I think he’s fit. Let’s leave it at that.
  9. You were feeling low and lonely. He filled an emotional void. It sounds like nothing physical has ever happened. you have been honest with your partner. Is it an emotional affair - how would you feel if your partner did the same?
  10. Get a gp review it might be stress or I could be something like low HB levels in your blood.
  11. Sorry that this is happening to you. You must try and ignore the compulsion to seek reassurance. It’s your ocd. You know you know his face as you said you have been together for several years. That’s it nothing to worry about.
  12. I have a similar issue of trying to be a perfectionist and end up taking more work on and cracking through it at a pace. I find my colleagues do not have the same approach. I know this is my ocd. By all means be a hard worker and be productive but don’t let ocd take over your life.
  13. Ocd is taking over. Regain control. Don’t do the compulsions and definitely don’t let ocd upset your relationship with your daughter
  14. Have you received any cbt. By seeking reassurance you are completing a compulsion. You need to let the thought go as ruminating about it is just the ocd taking control
