Hey, i've been having thoughts about harming my mother and honestly, it's getting hard to deal with. I've become numb to the thoughts which is a good thing, but i've stopped caring and the thoughts are constantly going on in my head. I'm questioning if i want to do them, and thinking things like "why not" and things along that line. I've been able to take my mind off them to some extent, but it's tiring me out. Any replies would be much appreciated.

I've also been trying to see a psychiatrist on me feeling empty and depressed. The depression then turns to extreme happiness then goes back down again in a few minutes.

The harm ocd also sometimes gets a hopeless feeling where i feel like i'm lost and i feel like i'm going to do it. But at times i'll just feel very happy and think "Nah, i don't want to do it, i'm not going to do it!"

of course your not going to do it but you need to believe this all the time. 

Odd the mood swings you describes, they are more to do with Bipolar  than OCD, but there is medication available . Are you taking antianxiety/antidepressants ? Antianxiety work pretty fast whilst antidepresessants take 2-4 weeks to work depending on the type of depressant and the individual. Your psyshiatrist should be very familiar with all this stuff. 

Try not to attach too much impotrance to the negative stuff that comes to your head.

Take care

Why not, but then again, why. 

You've just got so tired of the thoughts and stopped taking them seriously so long ago that you can't ve3 botherwd to gibve them a sensible answerr any more.  There's only so many times somebody can be expected to answer the same question.

You cn want to if you want, just so long as you don't actually do it.  Not that I expect you ddo want to, just saying you don't need to worry about stopping yourself "wanting to", or stopping yourself thinking about it, as thining something does no harm to anyone.
