      Just wondering what people think – I suffered really badly from OCD about 7 years ago, mainly just horrible intrusive thoughts, and am currently getting carpet bombed by health anxiety, currently that I’ve got MND/ALS (one of my friends died of it this year, and I was present when he passed away). It seems quite similar to OCD, because there’s loads of checking and reassurance seeking, but also loads of somatic symptoms, feeling like I’ve got weak/tense muscles and things like that. One thing it has in common with OCD for sure is that it’s absolutely crap.
