    Hi YamYam.  Just to say hello back and it's good that you found this site. In my experience I find that talking about OCD, and the stuff around it really helps me. This site has been very helpful to me. Hope it helps you.

    Hi Wombat. Yes! I too get caught in an OCD soup and then it's like all my thoughts are about OCD and also trying to figure out the magic solution - solution being thinking about OCD in a specific idea what that is of course.

    Hi Pinkbook....I guess your choice to abstain and deny is safe. No risk. No doubt. That seems to be your goal.....? I guess we all have to make choices about how we live.

    Hi Adam1990.  Yes I too have experienced things similar to you. ... Numbness and stuff like OCD thoughts feeling the voice from God in my head. Horrible. I numbed out by being constantly busy, automatic pilot, wheel going round but hamster long since hone stuff!

    Hi Biffnon.  I can relate to your constant anxiety and barrage of stupid irrational OCD thoughts...but you said it, they are just stupid thoughts.

    I too often have two OCD thoughts at one time, swopping intensity in fearfulness.  They are kind of linked in that the underlying theme is fear of being harmed or hurt, unless I 'do something'.

    Yes it will get better.

    Yes the anxiety reduces as I learn they are only thoughts, not real stuff. You would know, no doubts if they were real. Real is deeper, wiser, feels peaceful...keep going..xx

    Hi OCD disaster. In my case I don't even need to act on my thoughts to feel like I'm a terrible person and guilty. My OCD thoughts themselves always contain an element of condemnation, fear of being punished, and it's actually a feeling of shame about not being good enough.
