This is very normal and very common. I experienced this myself. It can be very scary and confusing for the ocd sufferer. You have to understand that ocd attacks what you care about most. OCD can come in as a thought, feeling, urge, sensation, dream, false memory, any combination of the above. OCD will make you think and feel whatever you're afraid of feeling on autopilot. Try to disregard the ocd however it comes in to the best of your ability. There may be automatic fear but try not to add to the fear. Have a schedule of things to do so you dont get stuck thinking about it, or doing compulsions. Also do exposures like watching scary things on the news, or video clips of whatever it is you're afraid of as often as you can. I know how hard this is. Hope this helps:) god bless.
