Hi everyone, I joined this site a few days ago and really happy to see such positive support here. I suffer from OCD with mostly disastrous thoughts about family members. Like someone in this discussion group said, anything can trigger it off for me. So if I read about someone dying of a disease,if someone's mother has a terminal illness, or even if I see an ambulance or read about a disaster, my mind starts racing. I can't seem to stop the thing from not thinking. And it reaches a point where I'm picking my face, nose, hair. It takes a while to calm down and do routine things. I also start counting or have to force myself to think good thoughts, especially when I wake up. Its like I have to spell the good thoughts in my imagination, to convince myself that the day will be good. Its crazy. I want to know if any of you feel this way? How did you get help to get over this?
