I've always had a few obsessional thoughts but in the last couple months I've developed some compulsions as well... classic handwashing but also cleaning my teeth more than I should. Suddenly the world seems like it is brimming with germs and I just don't know how to cope. I feel suffocated by them. I don't want to put my feet on the bed... I've completely stopped going barefeet anywhere. I have never paid attention to how unclean everything is before now. I'm not sure why my awareness of germs has suddenly come to the forefront, but it is awful and I don't want it to get any worse.
Can anyone suggest the best way to go from here? Can you recommend a particular form of treatment?
