Since I have ocd I am constantly worried about every little thing. I get so scared because I have adear of sperm being every where and I get so scared when people touch me. I live with my brother and dad so that doesn't help. I an sure my brother toucges hin self a lot and he barely ever washes his hands and I get so scared [Frown] . I don't feel comfortable at home or anywhere. Yesterday My brother closed the door to my room and I was scared to go past it or touch it. Im almost certain he had sperm on him. This morning my mom came in my room to give me my medication and I just now realized that she had touched the door which my brother had and she could have passed the sperm on to me. Now I have to wash every thing I've touched because I feel I've contaminated it with sperm. Im scared to eat foods, im scared to use the bathroom so I hold it in as long as I can . Also whenever I walk past something my braib tells me "oh you touched that" even though i know I haven't but it convinces me so I go wash my hands again. I hate feeling like this please give some advice. [Confused]

Hi Cristina,

It sure sounds like this is scary for you.

Are you getting help for your OCD from a doctor, therapist, or both? If so, you need to be talking to them about this.

If not, how about telling someone so they can help you get some help from a qualified healthcare provider?

I am seeing both but considering the fact that I can't talk with them right now...I just want some advice. Also the therapy process is so slow and im just scared.

I know you're scared.


Mental health issues are just not something that we can advise on as that is not our area of expertise.

Has your therapist given you any tools to help you when you're having trouble between appointments?

Can anyone in your house help you?

If you're looking for ways to take care of yourself, here are some ideas: http://www.scarleteen.com/article/crisis/selfcare_a_la_carte
