- Religion & Spirituality OCD
I have religious OCD too. But your thoughts aren't sinful. They just are. God understands your struggles and loves you so much. I have an OCD diagnosis and all this sounds very familiar. I also have harm OCD and suicide OCD. The guilt and the shane that can come from those types of thoughts can be horrible. I suggest getting a therapist who understands OCD and specializes in ERP. ERP is crazy hard. But it works. I've noticed a major difference. Good luck and God Bless
Thank you so much, im working on getting therpay with NOCD. Im not official diagnosed but I have so many signs and symptoms its just easier to explain to others when I refer to it as reglious OCD even though I havnt technically been diagnosed. I have been struggling with stuff like this all my life but with other subtypes this subtype show up alot this year the more serious i got about God the worse it got. Its weird because I know God loves and understands me and wont turn his back on me but its like all i can think about is im going to hell. I mostly have a probelm with like feeling that I will always go to hell because of this stuff. I think is stems alot from the fact i haven’t technically been diagnosed so it makes me stress out like if it isnt OCD then that would mean it would actually be me, im not sure if that made sense.
@JaydenBingham I totally get it. OCD targets what you love most. Your faith is obviously very important to you, OCD latched on to it.
@Lms526 Thank you for the advice and everything it really helps. Its nice to know like this is in a way normal for people with religious OCD.
