Hello, I just downloaded this app today... my S.O doesn't get it and I feel like I'm repetitive to my family and I don't want them to worry. I am hoping to get some real-life help from someone who has gone through it and what they are currently doing. I was just recently diagnosed with OCD, but I've had an idea for a while now it just took me a very long long time to trust someone. I was always so worried they would inpatient me or take my child away. I still worry about those things but I start seeing a therapist in August and I'm hoping that helps.
I worry constantly, especially about my child's safety, I have these thoughts that if I do this then this will happen, or you have to do this or he will die, or your sister will get in horrible car accident and etc.

I was also wondering because I haven't had the chance to talk to my therapist yet, I do this what I call weird thing where I trace things with my finger or tongue over and over again.
I also count how many holes someone has in there clothing over and over, does anyone else do this??

    The tracing and counting could be compulsions. If you know you do these things to prevent something, it's compulsions or ritualistic behaviors. I don't want to assume what subtype of OCD you have, so I recommend going on the NOCD website and reading about them, if you haven't already.
