ocd trigger health scare

Postby tia123 » Mon Jul 08, 2024 11:45 pm

Hiya I have a post on here already but wanted to start afresh one as it's been 7 years since my last entry
I have suffered with every type of ocd for many years, decades. I'm in my 50's now and it's still no easier.
I had a major health issue a few weeks ago and came back all clear for cancer although I have to have further investigations. It was two weeks of hell think the worst possible scenario that's what ocd does. Anyway this has cause a trigger relating to an incident that happened over 40 years ago.
Very scared by writing this.
When I was 13 years I stayed at my gym teachers house. Her little girl was I believe about 4. We were sat in the sofa reading a book and mum said its bedtime so we went upstairs and she went into the bathroom. I followed and then gave her some space on the toilet so I walked to the door entry, Mum was still downstairs, I asked if she finished, got some toilet roll and wiped her, but as soon as I did. I though should I have done that. Could she had done it herself?. I'd never taken a child to the toilet before so was unsure. Mum came in not long after and I was going to say that I'd assisted her but thought I'd done something wrong so I didn't say anything.
Since this event I have never taken a child to the toilet. I've never been able to conceive children which I love. I have neices and nephews who I love immensely. I have soneone that i can confind in but they say "oh no not this again" so I keep it to myself. Every day this in my mind, somewhere. This has spiked probably 5 times in my lifetime. I normally end up on medication anxiety medication which brings me back to some normality for a few years.
Thanks for listening


I can most of the time put it to the back of my mind but any very stressful life situation triggers it and starts all over again.
