I think you would probably need to seek the advice of a professional. If you haven't already been referred by your GP, get down to your surgery and demand that you see someone who can help you, as, I believe, these things get worse without proper help.

There is an underlying problem which you need to address before you can get through this. I think I read somewhere that OCD, is a coping mechanism brought on by a trauma in your life that you haven't dealt with.

Definately seek professional medical advice.

You would be best going to your dr.

From what I know OCD is not something you can get rid of, but there are ways of living with it. A professional would be best suited to help you.

I have it, but i dont deal with it. Ive been talking to my friend about the things i do lately (because of my ocd) and i didnt realise how bad it was until i told her. Sorry this isnt much help - i cant really give you advice on what to do because I dont know either but im just letting you know youre not the only one and i know how frustrating it can be.

I had OCD when i was younger. It was about fire.. I used to think that i had to think about fire for 5minutes before i went to sleep or my house would set on fire! I got over it by talking to my friends about it who helped me realise that if i didnt think about fire then my house still wouldn't set on fire. Like the others have said its good to talk to someone about it.

yeah i wouldnt worry too much i mean you can see your GP for professional help but everybody has a small OCD and as for yours, i think yours is a good one when it comes to locking your house because at least you will always feel safe.

Ive got OCD, I have to make sure my bed is perfect and the curtains are tight shut before I get into bed.
My body is telling me to do it because im used to it, But i ignore it.

i had a major OCD from the age of 11, so bad it took over my life, i had to do things a even number of ways, it began with having a touch the pavement a certain number or times, or opening and closing things- or putting something in the bin a certain way up and then rechecking it= it was awful and you know what , to this day no one knows the extent of how bad it was, but then again that was 11 years ago and it was not known about as it is now, its not really that i grew out of it, i taught myself eventually that i didnt have to do it nothing was going to happen. I still have it mildly and check things an awful lot but it doesnt control me now i control it- good luck with getting help with it hun
