I can't do basic things without having bad thoughts and doing rituals. I guess I have become a total puppet in the hands of ocd. My fears are driving me to the extent of being my own worst enemy. I just don't want to live with this illness. To type this message I had to struggle so much and perform ritual to get rid of bad thoughts. I can't even live a normal life and do basic stuff, I am totally handicapped by my brain.

I think I have might have the type of OCD you mentioned. I have plenty of rituals I do to keep bad things from happening,sometimes it does become unbearable.

For me the only way to truly abolish ocd induced fear is through "higher power", i.e something that's above me, because if things rely on me, all the bad things will become real (in my head). I count everything - steps, clock ticks, number of times I touch something, even cars on the road. The count has to fall on "lucky numbers" and every person in my life has a number which corresponds to an emotion. And when I look at that person, I have to think of the number for good luck and protection. It sounds so crazy when I put it into writing...

I understand how hellish it feels to live with what you've described, because I do it, too. But you know what? You don't sound "crazy" - you sound imaginative and very intelligent. It is highly likely that your natural intelligence simply took a bit of a wrong turn with regard to neurochemistry.

I didnt get over it. It just changed themes. Now its a little bit of everything. Religious, cleanliness, harm ocd, pedophilia ocd. I think my zoloft might help it some but not much and my Zoloft comes with some health risks. It makes my liver enzymes high and my tryglecerides high.

After you explained it I realized I have that, too, plus other forms of OCD. I see things on tv and I think something like "if the next frame shows this __________ will happen to me next year or in 10 years." Is that what you mean? It gets aggravating and the meds I take do help me with it somewhat.

At the bottom of OCD, is this utter helplessness we feel when the irrational fear gets too much that it takes away all our happiness and reduces us to mere slave of our mind.
I always look for people who can understand what its like to have ocd. Please message me if you'd like to talk.

This sounds similar to a superstitious way of thinking. It reminds me of a movie about baseball players who do things for good luck to help them win a baseball game.

Hi. Im new here. I thought my OCD was limited to contamination but realize I have intrusive thoughts and magical thinking as well. I worked on those things so my OCD is grabbing at straws trying to get me to be worried and filled with fear, doubt, and guilt.
