  • Real Events OCD

I never realize how much I have an obsession/compulsion until I hear what it’s called and have it described to me. Example: real event ocd. Things like that. It’s so hard to recognize these things on my own. Anyone else?

I completely relate to this! Especially with real event OCD and existential OCD. I wasn’t aware that I was actually obsessing and doing compulsions relating to these OCD subtypes until they were explained to me. It is definitely hard to recognise sometimes xx

I don't feel like I have any conpulsions or anything like that right now when it comes to my OCD. However, I do have anxiety(high anxiety) most of the day. I do have rituals that I like to keep, which sometimes are not kept. Like eating supper and cleaning up by 7 PM. And washing the dishes by hand even when we have a dishwasher. I suppose these are symptoms of OCD?
