      I was with someone a while back who had ocd and told me about their scary evil intrusive thoughts. Now I have an obsession where I am worried I actually have ocd too. I know ocd can be very convincing and these thoughts feel very real but in reality is it all just in my head?

        Thanks for posting on the forums and we’re sorry you haven’t had many replies yet, but please don’t think you’re ever alone.

        If you want to talk to someone who understands, you can also contact the OCD Action Helpline – our Helpline volunteers provide confidential information and support for people with OCD (and anyone who thinks they may have OCD). Most volunteers have personal experience of OCD; all understand how it can impact your entire life.

        Contact our Helpline by:

        • phone: 0300 636 5478
        • email: support@ocdaction.org.uk

        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/

        And please remember that you’re never alone – OCD Action is here to help and support you.

        Best wishes,
