I want to post my experiences with a recurring intrusive thought. I’m so afraid that pedestrians will be killed by cyclists. I presume a cyclist will cross a street, overlook someone and cause an accident. I feel very guilty which I know makes no sense. Do any of you have fear of accidents like this?

You can also find out about support groups on our website. These offer a safe place where you can talk openly about OCD and support other people too. Our information about UK-based groups can be found here:
If you don’t live in the UK, you can look for groups near you on the International OCD Foundation (IOCDF) website. Look in the section “Find Help” and then under “Listing Types”, choose “Support Groups”: https://iocdf.org/
