POCD Thoughts Destroying Me, Make It Stop!!!

I'm really struggling to cope at the moment.

On top of this, I am experiencing an increase in the number of paedophilia related thoughts (pocd).

On one level I honestly just want to get lobotomized or commit suicide to make this go away.

I hate having such a nasty horrid broken brain. Honestly it is not normal to be getting these disgusting twisted thoughts and I do not want them. I am not a paedophile, ...

*Trigger Warning* Fear of harming children (POCD)

Hello!
So the last couple of days were good. They weren't that bad, they were enjoyable... Until for some reason, I hit the anxiety train and now I'm worried of child molesting.
I at first say it's a wrong act, then later my brain tells me I'm going to do it still. I get really worried and the anxiety starts rising. I get to wonder what my future will look like? Am I broken? Can ...

HOCD, loss of attraction

Hello everyone.

Three years ago, I was affected by a classic HOCD. Intrusive thoughts, constant anxiety, fear of being in denial/becoming gay, and all that kind of stuff. I managed to get through it on my own, in about a year. Everything got better for about two weeks, and then, overnight, I lost my ability to find women beautiful (my aesthetic attraction). The anxiety was very low and even disappeared, but nothing came back in ...

Various OCD Themes Ruining My Life -- Please Help

Hey everyone,
I joined this forum as a place to hopefully allow myself to get my feelings out without being judged. I can't go to my friends or family because I have such an intense fear of them finding out about the mess that goes on in my life and my head. I've been feeling extremely hopeless lately; I dread every single day waking up and I haven't been able to find therapy or help ...

False Memories or suppressed memories from Real Event OCD ?

Hi peoples, I'm currently struggling with what I believe is OCD and anxiety related issues and was wondering if anyone can relate from experience that could potentially help.

Long story short I recently had a "memory" pop up into my mind from some kind of weird sexual behavior with a sibling when I was a kid/young teenager (approx. 15-16 years ago). From what I can remember clearly (or most confidence), I think i asked him ...

Refusing to accept reassurance (ROCD)?

So this is really just a question to see if anyone else experiences this sort of thing or if it’s linked to ocd/anxiety. I don’t think it’s really relationship ocd but it’s just easy to group it in this way. Anyway, countless times over the last year or so I will convince myself of something I.e. my girlfriend doesn’t want to have sex with me or she doesn’t find me attractive, or she’s only with ...

PURE OCD - HOCD My journey to hell & back

**mod edit- Trigger Warning**

Long and detailed analysis of my time with pure ocd, I still suffer but mainly mildly. I told myself when I got better I would share my story to help others so here it is.

Before you get started, I want to let you know that there is a t.v series on channel four called pure - if you wanted to showcase how ocd affects you, it might be worth showing ...

Can it feel like you WANT to think the intrusive thoughts???

Yes, it's me again; Sorry.

Today hasn't been the best... As you can probably tell by the title, I've been having moments where it feels like I want to think about the intrusive images I've talked about before.

Now, for anyone wondering, yes, I have been diagnosed with OCD, although it was my counselor who came to that conclusion (not sure if it matters, but I felt I should clarify).

So, I once again ask ...
