Washing hands
 
I have really bad stress and PTSD, which caused OCD so I constantly wash my hands and I won't touch any kinda food without a fork. Is anyone like me and how do u control it?

I honestly don't know any way in order to control that, but I'd consider it a healthy habit everyone should consider doing.

I watched a documentary once and someone had the same thing as you, you have to gradually do things a little better, can you eat crisps without a fork?

I've got this problem. I could wash my hands up to five times in five minutes and certainly more than once in every couple of hours.
I made a 10 point dirt scale recently and am trying to minimise the washing with soap part. Maybe that could help.

I can't controll it, which is the problem.
I wash my hands atleast every hour of the day.
My hands often get irritated and stuff.
It sucks.

I used to be like that, I eventually just stoped after about a year

While washing hands is healthy, I've heard that washing hands too often can certainly be OCD. Experts have warned against it...search online and you'll see.
