Can't stop!!

Postby docbrown » Sat Nov 10, 2018 9:05 am

I keep having to wash my bed sheets. and take showers, when I bring my sheets back in my room, and if I think they touch anything along the way, I have to wash them again and shower over and over again and I can't stop! I have a fear of fiberglass insulation and think it's everywhere because one oh my ceiling air vents had some pink asbestos come out from there in small pieces and I think it's everywhere. my life is being consumed please help somebody give me some tips please!

I had similar problems once. Although medication helped my OCD I had to tough it out and do some of the work myself. This means NOT doing the compulsions and coping with the fear that comes afterward. However, the more I denied reacting to my fear with compulsive behavior, the less strength the irrational thoughts had.

good luck - Otter.
