I haven't been officially dx with OCD but have many signs/symptoms of it. I constantly wash my hands...probably 30-40 times a day, from fear of germs. I think everything is 'contaminated' in some way. I constantly clean and re-clean even if I just did it. I check and re-check things like the stove or if I locked the front door when I left. I have to completely wash my hands and dry them with a clean, unused towel before I will do anything with my children because of my fear of germs. I feel tense, anxious, stressed if I think about something not being in the correct place or being clean. Does this sound like OCD? If so, what treatments are out there for it? Its controlling my life and I know its wrong to do what I do and feel what I feel but for some reason I can't stop myself.
