OCD and “Checking” our Emotions
We conceptualize OCD as a biologically based mental health disorder whereby a person experiences intrusive unwelcome thoughts obsessions and engages in rituals compulsions to get rid of the anxiety or any uncomfortable feeling associated with these thoughts. Often overlooked in conceptualizing OCD are the physical sensations that folks may focus on, rather than a primary disturbing thought. There is usually an accompanying obsession that is disturbing, but the patient may be unaware of it. For example, I have treated patients whose primary OCD symptom is experiencing the frequent urge to urinate. One of my patients, a graduate student in his late twenties, was referred to me after visiting medical doctors including urologists to determine the cause of his urge to repeatedly empty his bladder throughout the day and also during the night. This patient woke up many times, felt the urge to urinate, and then would get out of bed to use the bathroom.
Understanding what drives a person to continue performing the seemingly nonsensical and repetitive behaviours that are involved in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder OCD is difficult, especially for loved ones. Instead, we simply want to offer a brief overview of the general components that help keep OCD going. For someone with OCD, what they worry about whatever intrusive thoughts they have seems very likely to happen and their sense of responsibility means that they feel they must act in order to prevent it. In other words, the two beliefs create an ever increasing cycle of obsessions and compulsions. Even if the level of danger is assessed to be relatively low by the person with OCD i. OCD is driven by the fear of consequences, no matter how unlikely they are.
Hi everyone so I know a lot of people here suffer with intrusive thoughts but I don't think I do to the extent that others do. Every single person has intrusive thoughts but those who don't have ocd are able to let the thoughts go without giving them a 2nd thought where as sadly a lot of ocd sufferers aren't able to do that so easily. I definitely have intrusive thoughts of course but a lot of the time I can let them go as I know they aren't what I actually like or want. My fears are based around being a pedophile and that I am an abusive person and enjoy people getting hurt and dying. My worry here is that I get more of a feeling rather than a thought. My thoughts are constant in the way of worrying and I do a lot of checking in my head but sometimes when I have been around a child or a child I know quite well it can actually feel like I'm romantically in love with them.
