      Hi Last year my Dad was diagnosed with OCD but he has a this theme, he has what he calls historical intrusive thought about real events that frighten me sometimes. Heis thoughts are so vivid that they make me panic and sometimes I am horrified.

      I know it is just thoughts but what confuses me is why his thoughts are about real events from years ago. He ruminates and reviews past occasions and mostly those are the worst but sometimes he’s triggered by current real events and I’m so confused .
