Really sorry about this. I dealt with mild OCD throughout high school and university, and its only now through medication and counselling that I have it under control.

If it is really bothering you, have you talked to a doctor about getting some help? There are lots of things that you can do to control your obsessions, which will then decrease your compulsive behaviours.

I would recommend seeing someone about it. If the compulsions are bad enough that they are interfering with your life, you should do something about it.

I too have OCD, but I obsess over “what if” situations and can’t relax (or even fuction) until I’ve figured out “what I would do”

I’ve stayed up for 6 hours past bedtime obsessing over what would happen if someone broke in becasue they saw we had just bought a new TV and decided to take everyone hostage.

I undertand the compultion. It too drives me nuts.

My SO has OCD rather bad. It was an issue at the beginning of the relationship (mostly because he did not KNOW he had OCD, he chose to ignore the fact that he flickered lights, tore 3 paper towels off the roll, and washed his hands all the time…) Long story short, you should talk to your husband if you havent  already. Then youmay want to go to therapy together. When my SO started therapy, we went together and it really opened my eyes to how his thoughts worked and how we could work together to get through it. It really helped both me and him. Good luck 🙂
