What should I do?

Quote

Hi, I have setbacks in my recovery. I say that I will not be afraid with my thoughts anymore and I do it for some time, but then again I fall in to rumination and alooooot doubts. I have thoughts that "what if I see my family in a sexual way"I don't know how to recover. I have doubts for everything and I can't take it anymore, I don't sleep well I don't eat well. And I feel anxious all the day.. My life is destroying day by day... I don't know what to do? I doubt if there is recovery for me..if someone wants advice me because I am tired very very tired... I don't want to live like this anymore .

I would suggest that you focus on being good to yourself today and try to do something that you enjoy. Look after yourself physically as mental health and physical health are related. Maybe have a nap if possible and eat some healthy food, drink water etc. Of course you will have setbacks, but it is what you do after you have the setback that counts.  Right now it sounds like you have let go of your power.  Let the doubts and thoughts be there, but go on with your life and eventually the anxiety and thoughts will decrease and leave. I think OCD loves it when we feel defeated. Show OCD that you will not be defeated. You can do it!
