I don't know of anybody that suffers with the same type of obsessions as me. I've searched the internet but nothing even talks about it. My therapist identified it so I know it must be a real thing. I was just wondering If you had ever heard of "original form ocd" I feel so alone and I don't know what to do. Am I the only one who feels like this?

Hey hun, Unfortunately I haven’t heard of this before. I just tried searching for it as well, but couldn’t find anything on it. Perhaps try asking your therapist what she meant by ‘original form OCD’, maybe it is what she/he calls another type of OCD. If you want to, here is a list of other types of OCD/related disorders so you can have a look at that if you want and see if any of them fit what you are going through.

If you have a look at this website it has lists and information on different types of compulsions and obsessions, your therapist could be referring to something to do with types of these things.

Remember that you aren’t alone. There are so many people here, and I’m sure someone will understand what you are going through, even if they use a different name for it xx

If anyone has heard anything about this, then please message in or reply to this post!

Hey, have you seen the new BuzzFeed post about OCD? It's called, "23 Things People With OCD Are Tired Of Hearing." I have OCD, and it's pretty accurate! :)

I've just had my 1st CBT appointment. It was a disaster. Therapist was not savvy in OCD and made me unconfortable. She will be referring to a colleague more suitable to my needs. I guess I'm just looking for some support to keep going... It was extremely to break the fear barrier and finally go to therapy. I feel it was all for nothing :/

I am really proud of you for reaching out and getting help, that is awesome! Think of it as a good thing that your first therapist is referring you, you hopefully won’t feel as uncomfortable with your next therapist. In saying that, it is likely to be a little awkward when you are seeing any therapist for the first time, so don’t give up on the next one unless you are really sure.

Here are some things to keep you going:

Hi, I really need your help. My OCD is causing me so much pain, I get bullied at school for it and even my family is bullying me. I don't know what to do, my compulsions are getting worse and I don't know what to do anymore.

Maybe try talking to a teacher or the school counsellor about it. Your school should have policies against bullying, so teachers are obligated to do something about it. If you start talking to the counsellor then they may be able to help you out with your home situation as well xx

I'm extremely paranoid that I'm going to get food poisoning any time I eat meat. Could this be a sign of OCD? I have GAD and panic disorder as well
Anonymous asked

That could be  a sign of OCD, but it may not be OCD if it doesn’t cause significant distress in your life (not saying that it doesn’t - just letting you know so you are aware). Since you have already been diagnosed with GAD and panic disorder, it is likely that your fear of food poisoning could be stemming from one of them xx
