Default Re: it will all be my fault.

If I don't _____, then something horrible will happen.

That is usually what I look for in a true case of OCD, versus other signs, when I see "do I have OCD" posts. Since doing some things just because is usually a sign they're more of a neat freak, someone who likes things organized, or just a highly anxious person, but when there is an ingrained consequence in your mind that you think will occur if you don't do whatever, there's a high chance you do have OCD. Do you? Not certainly. But it sounds spot-on from my perspective, and I've been diagnosed OCD for years.

As far as what you should do, see a professional. They can confirm if they think you have OCD, and also get you on some anxiety meds if they see fit.

Good luck hun


And I'm sorry I didn't build your walls. And I'm sorry I had to go and fall.
And I'm sorry I had the whole thing wrong. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.
And I'm sorry that you are feeling small. And I'm sorry that I'm not used to crawling.
And I'm sorry the writing's on the wall. Well, I guess I'm the sorriest of all.
