  1. Just remember what your therapist has told you to do Cora
  2. it wouldn't affect my day or it would not stop me using the clothes at all in fact i would wear them immediately because i love ordering new clothes! i wouldn't even think about it just your OCD
  3. thanks so much for the swift response Snowbear, I really appreciate and will put it into action. Thank you for the advice! I guess we always try to link everything to what we fear most when we suffer from magical thinking. I hope you are getting on well and enjoying the sunshine ~ Getting my textbooks out tonight! 😉
  4. Hello, everyone, been a while since I posted on here. I've been doing well and undergoing CBT. I've had something come up which I'm not so sure about. Long story short; my OCD focuses on that God will punish me if I do my hobbies. My hobby is learning Korean and my OCD tells me God will punish me if I study it. Anyway, I wanted to sign up for a Korean proficiency test in London and I was convinced the date to enrol was in August. So I entered the website in July and I missed the date because the website said July. Okay I missed it, no big deal. But the part niggling me is 'Did god make me read the date or remember the date wrong on purpose so I couldn't do the exam? Was it a warning sign? Did he change it on the website what I saw to warn me off? ' those are the thoughts I am having and I'm not so sure what's going on. If any one could shed some light that would be great, thank you Mark
  5. There's nothing to say Cora but there's a lot you can do and that's to take everybody on here's advice
  6. by taking the big step and accepting it's OCD and then making a list of your compulsions, trying to refrain from doing them and distracting yourself. you can do it!
  7. Cora you've been told what to do..I know it's hard but really you know what to do. You've been told what to do by everyone on here. Only you can now put into practice our advice. We know it's really hard ..if it wasn't then OCD wouldnt be serious but it is
  8. Is that a fact or your little theory? I'm not so sure about that..
  9. Well done!! I'm so happy and excited for you!
  10. you've had our opinions cora, it's not going to change. you know what to do to over come this. I know it is easier said than done but, come on you can do it!
  11. because it is a real existing word : ) so you will see it around
  12. Coincidences happen all the time Moser. That is why there is a word for it.. it doesn't have any special or important meaning With the millions of thoughts and actions happening around the world every day, of course thinks are going to intersect at some point. In fact, it would be weird if they didn't!
  13. Welcome to the forum! You'll find so much valuable support here . Good luck with therapy and recovery! We're all fighting OCD monster together:)
