Hi, I'm 17 years old and have had OCD since I was a kid. I have experienced many different obsessions including fear of my loved ones being killed, religious ocd, constantly checking, and more recently fear of causing a car accident or running over someone while driving. Among other obsessions.
My question is.... I have now developed a new compulsion. When I am in any situation I will often start to think of something gross or something I just really don't want to think of and to get that thought away I feel that i must tic. example.... Wincing, closing my eyes very tight, shrugging my shoulders, or shaking my head. The problem is it's getting very hard to hide these tics. Tonight I went to a youth group and everyone was sitting in a circle and It took so much energy not to tic yet I ended up ticing anyway and it was really embarrassing 'cause I kept thinking what everyone else must be thinking about me. Please respond to this Im really frustrated.View Thread
