Hi, been having intrusive thoughts for about 4 months now but I had the luck do dicover that I have pure O OCD within the first week. Since than my thought changet alot from harn to religious to sexual to harm to sexual again and so on and on. for the last 3 weeks I learned to ignore the thought and started feeling better I didn't have any pannic attack within these 3 weeks but still had intrusive thoughts abou incest. For the last 3 days my thought changet from the fear of having incest to the fear of being possessed and becoming schizophrenic. I sometimes start to listen if I hear any voice that is a typical schizophrenic they hear voices and I just fear that I also start to hear something it terrifies me does anybody have any sugestions please? Sorry for my english

Hi Ervin, I went through the same thing - for years I was convinced I had Schizophrenia to the point that I would not seek help for my intrusive thoughts in case it meant I would be put away. After fifteen years I finally went to the Drs and was sent to a psychiatrist. Finally I had confirmation that I was not schizophrenic and it was all OCD. You are probably going through the same thing. I am not expert but one thing I learned in the process was that schizophrenics usually do not think there is anything wrong with them. The voices are always real to them and there are seldom any doubts. Not saying this is an exact science as I have only ever known one person with schizophrenia but it's something to consider. And by the way, your English is great!

If you were schizophrenic you wouldn't be questioning whether you were or not. Schizophrenics have delusions, ideas or thoughts that they believe 100% without no doubt or question.

What Charlie said. You're not schizo, and never will be. It's a fairly rare condition and that's excluding the more severe cases of it where symptoms are more distinguished. These are thoughts and anxious responses to thoughts and nothing more. Being aware of this will allow you to think in different ways and deal with the fact that you're not in any danger.  As for religious and spiritual stuff like being possessed, perhaps evaluate whether you're looking for meaning in the wrong places. People simply have different personal beliefs about what occurs around them. Put a wider perspective on things, and apply your reactions to your thoughts to this as well once you've managed to do this.

I've dealt with possesion myself and admit is wasn't nice at all since Occultism runs a long way in my family. After dealing with Possesion I struggled to tell if the thoughts was all mine or the spirits because it had merged its own thoughts into my mind and that's caused me a lot of stress after. Once I got rid of the spirit, I did start to fear i was suffering with paranoid and obsessive thoughts all the time and couldn't stop performong ritauls to keep evil spirits away from me. I would say that spirit possesion had caused me to feel this way because I wasn't able to control my own thoughts 24 7. It took me several weeks to calm down after that but there is times I still get these intrusive and OCD thoughts and can be a total pain to deal with.
