      Hi

      Can OCD cause obsessions about attacking someone even if you know you would never do it? OCD has left me confused and unhappy it feels so scary and weird. I really don’t know how I feel and am confused and frightened. What do you think I should do?

          Yes, it can, but ocd folks are not known to attack people. It’s simply a fear of doing so.
