I'm completely new to this forum. I have recently been diagnosed with Ocd around asbestos. I was wondering whether anyone has any good advice or techniques how to overcome it. I'm finding it incredibly hard to go outside incase I come into contact with asbestos particles. I'm convinced every time I go outside I get contaminated. For example, if I see fluff on the floor outside my house and I become obsessed that it's asbestos insulation and then have to pick it up(with wipes) and dispose of it as I'm terrified that someone will walk it into my home. This then scares that I have now contaminated myself, so it's just mental torture! This happens with various situation. Sometimes I want to speak to a specialist who can answer my concerns regarding asbestos. I would be grateful for any advice.
