Checking OCD

Quote

Hello, does anyone suffer the same thing? I get crazy checking all the time. Thank you.

Sometimes I get this especially when responsible for turning items off like coffee makers etc. I guess like anything else with OCD the best advice is to try to reduce the compulsions one step at a time as well as sit with the anxiety which is extremely difficult but it eventually goes down. I think it is more difficult as people who have OCD tend to not trust themselves and have a lot of fear and guilt which feeds the OCD.

I have had checking OCD since I was 13..I am now 57. I have good and bad days. Stress tringers my checking. I have GOOD NUMBERS and BAD NUMBERS! I try my best to not do it so my advice is say to yourself ... I refuse and try to refuse to check it as long as possible! I sometimes check it ONCE AND SAY OUT LOUD IN PRIVACY OF COURSE " CHECKED" that way I remember I said CHECKED out loud and do not have the need to go back to it the second time,,etc.
