    Solipsism ocd

    Same as with any OCD theme. Primarily, stop your compulsions.

    We've gone over with you many times why this is everyday OCD. I'm not going to comment on all your baseless reasons.

    Look you are making a choice here. Don't let that escape you. You are choosing to believe you did something wrong, in the absence of any evidence. You could choose to believe nothing happened and get on with your life. Asking your mom repeatedly what you said is a compulsion. It's keeping you stuck.

    Fear of Causing a flood

    So stop drying your clothes. You admit you do it and admit it doesn't do any good. So stop.
  5. Off jokes do not make someone a disgrace. Thinking that is illogical, twisted thinking.

    You're frustrated. Understandable. But you're reacting by trying to figure things out, thinking the worst case scenario and analyzing what may have happened. These are the activities you must put an end to. We have told you this time and time again. Kissing someone is not the end of the world. Cheating is not the end of the world. You're acting like you must have, even though you don't know and never will for sure.

    Period panic

    The first thing you need to do is STOP coming here and giving us detailed infotmation. It's a compulsion and it needs to stop.

    Write down your compulsions. Whwn you get the thought that you will cause a flood, what safety behaviors do you do?

    You've spent 8 months thinking about it constantly. It's going to take time to Peter out. In the mean time, quit analyzing what's currently going on and trying to figure out what it means. Leave it alone.
  10. What I'm saying is you have yo change the way you think and behave around the thoughts. Start entertaining the idea that there is no contamination and never was. If you keep doing the same old thing you can't expect a different result.

    Reality Versus Obsession

    What do you think other people would do in that given situation?
  12. Or its related to OCD, which means there is nothing to be concerned about. This is the possibility you need to start entertaining.
  13. You can stop or at least slow down your worrying. You have the ability to do that. Much of it has to do with what you tell yourself. If you tell yourself this situation is bad and you are going to get suck and it's going to be awful, you aren't going to be doing very well.
  14. Even if you are ill, what will worrying about it do?
