One of the biggest things I use to worry about - not so much anymore, because I've learned ways to cope with it - was this idea of repressed memories. See, I'd have these terrible intrusive thoughts and immediately doubt whether I did the action in my thoughts because I was fearful of repressed memory. I would think, "Omg, it's so crazy and unlike me, it probably shocked my whole system and my psyche couldn't deal with the fact that I did such a horrible thing and so now it's going to repress the memory!" I've gottten better at it - somebody (and forgive me that I've forgotten the name, because it was a while ago, but this advice was of immense help) said something, "If it's too crazy to be true, it probably is," and "I'd remember anything of importance like that." Does anybody else feel this way? Is this common of OCD? Because I stopped worrying about it but then in one of my classes, my professor just casually mentioned the idea of repressed memories and I freaked in class!
