    Well, I have never been professionally diagnosed, but I do find that I obsess over many different things, one thing after another. This morning, while eating breakfast, I was wondering about when I would speak with my Mom, and then some obsessive thoughts started about whether I truly love my Mom or not (ROCD).

If she is home she has a drink , and most times she makes herself two drinks at a time for some ocd reason. She has said that she needs them to try to settle herself .

    Hello everyone.  I'm a single mother of a toddler,  with severe anxiety/ panic attacks/ocd (more on the obsessive side) with my demons directly focused on my daughter's safety,  or better phrased... My fears of an unrealistic inability to keep her safe.  I have a new therapist,  and I like her.  Short version... I have no safety net.  My therapist has suggested I try to find other single...
