    Hi Kim, Β My son had this condition in 2011. Β He's 24 now and studying at uni.

    He had a terrible time with these disgusting intrusive thoughts, he was very ill and too frightened at first to tell anyone what he was enduring.

    Long story short, he eventually diagnosed with pure O, had exposure/cbt therapy and prescribed citalopram which he believes is the only antdepressant that works for this condition.

    He's never looked back, feels great and able to live and function normally.

    Look to the future it get's better in time.

    Hugs x

    Hi,

    I've had this anxiety too whilst working as a kids instructor!!!

    It is horrible, but passed fairly quickly. You just need to keep reinforcing the idea into your mind that it is just anxiety..... it is obviously just the anxiety tricking your mind. If it wasnt it wouldnt have just come on........you would have been having these thoughts since puberty. Everytime you get an instrusive thought- counter it with 'this is just anxiety'..... or a mantra that is powerfull enough to work for you. It will pass. Just imbed this new matra into your mind! make it stronger than the thoughts. Dont let them in........ just keep telling them to 'p*** off' always helps.

    Remember, you have nothing to feal guilty for, there is nothing wrong with you.

    This is just anxiety and it will pass.

    Hi Kim I know exactly what you are going through hun, having ocd is a horrible thing I sometimes feel like giving up, but don't because of my two children and partner. Don't give up! We will get rid of it eventually! X

      I lived a very normal life for the past 6 years Donna with Pure O. (Until 8 weeks ago when I have a bad turn) We will get back to a good place. Get a great therapist and try ur hardest with CBT and the thoughts will die down. Keep getting therapy till it works hun.

      Where do you stay? Xxxx

    OCD Thoughts are horrid, but they are just your OCD. You think something horrid, know its horrid, & it kicks off even more horris thoughts in a loop of horror, guilt, & disgust.

    You're normal, you just have the obessional thought circle, its not you, its not your true thoughts, its like a self inflicted sick thought nightmare.
