I’m not sure if my issues with food are actually ocd

Hi everyone,

I had a couple of questions and I wasn’t sure if what I am dealing with is ocd or not and I was hoping to get some advice so I can know whether to seek help.

Basically, I struggle with feeling like food is contaminated with mold, bugs, or germs.
- if I see mold on a certain food, I won’t be able to eat that specific food for years (right now it’s ...

That's why

I was diagnosed as having AvPD by a psychiatrist back in 2008. I think I assumed that was simply descriptive: I avoid things, no kidding. I've only just found out that it includes a good deal of aetiology as well.

Until T called the inside world headspace I ...

How to deal with family members who neglects their health?

I'm really desperate to what to do about my *family member*.
She neglects her health, refuses to get treatment for a very painful but otherwise benign disease she has.
She agrees that she needs to take certain medication and supplements (one being highly suggested by doctors, like Folate), but just doesn't take them. Every time I ask she says "yes I'll take it" but "later". And later means never since about 10 years. She even ...

Climbing OCD mountain

Hi all.
It has taken 5 years to realise it, but I may very well have undiagnosed OCD. Whilst no one here can say whether this is or isn't OCD, I am treating it as it.
I am a 22 year old who is a very high functioning autistic and has always had obsessive tendencies. At first it was about drains, then nuclear weapons/war, mario etc.
It did not affect my day to day life ...
