Creative Community

At OCD Action we often get people sending us poems, stories, books, art and a whole range of creative and inspirational work. For many people, being creative is an excellent way to express their feeling about OCD and how it impacts on their lives. In this area of the website, we invite you to submit your own creative work and share it with a wider audience. For now we can only take words but soon we hope to give you the opportunity to up-load images, video and audio. Your submissions will go to our volunteer editor for approval before they are posted below, if you wish to post pictures alongside your work, please email them across to media@ocdaction.org.uk.

Obsessional thoughts loud like thunder
Stirring up fear deep in your mind
Finds what you are afraid of, and turns up the volume
Part of your mind trys to say, but can only manage a whisper "but that's not true"
Part of your mind trys to fight, but all it can... Read More

Sudden automatic thoughts that darken each new day
sadly, I'm aware that they are here to stay.
My anxiety is swelling and I pray my thoughts aren't right
should I seek reassurance, should I flee or should I fight?

I feed these thoughts with meaning as the anxiety... Read More
