Okay, so I finally, for the first time in 5 yars admitted to having a hugh fear of hurting others, or myself. (No I am no going to do anything.)I never told anybody because I thought they would put my in a psych ward. Well anyway, I came across a site about OCD, and one of the fears is the fear that I have. Does OCD go with anxiety? Is OCD treated differently then OCD? Does anybody else in here have OCD? I always have been a freak about things in perfect order, and just right. I never gave it a second thought. I am kind of happy it is not a bad as I thought. I thought I was going to turn psycho or something, and end up in  a hospital for the rest of my life. Kind of nice knowing that there is a name for these thoughts, and a way for them to be treated.  PLEASE HELP!!!!

Hi Mary,

I suffer OCD as well. Some of those thoughts we get can be truly sickening and have us questioning our sanity, but it's all part of the OCD.

I ended up in hospital last year because my OCD had me constantly thinking suicidal thoughts. I didn't want to do it but my mind what not let up. Hospital and med changes helped to relieve those symptoms.
