      So I’ve had a really bad day, and some of it links to OCD.

      So last night I had two very vivid dreams.

      The first was a dream linked to a theme I have (not anything illegal or like that). I used to regularly Google searches related to it however I’ve been trying to give up since I realised that people were twisting it into very dark and evil ways (I’ve already wrote about it on here and it’s horrible). I woke up however I failed  to resist the urge to google it again  but I’m improving. I then went back to sleep. The next dream I had was very odd but irrelevant

      Anyway after I woke back up I felt strange. I was disgusted (and have been most of the day) at this theme but I’ve felt overwhelmingly as if my phone is contaminated in some way by any googling done and OCD googlimg I’ve done.

      Is this a common obsession to have?

        Hi there, I’m not sure about what you are talking about, but I do get this thought occasionally as I am doing searching as a compulsion. I worry that somehow they’ll think I’m looking things up because of some malicious or wrong reason. I also have obsessions about me being into gross and disgusting things, so you aren’t alone on that.
