This is a small book which talks about experience with having intrusive thoughts ocd which is different to your classic OCD. OCD intrusive thoughts are when your mind makes you believe that you will do something that is against your nature for example imaging if you were on the bus the person sitting next to you what bad things could you do to that person who the thoughts play on that. In this book I talk about the time I kept it a secret until around the age of 23 I started to tell people for the first time which was hard at first but it did help a lot in the long term. I talk about the actions I took when I was having a bad time such as what if I really did do something that evil. I really wanted to write this book because it is an issue it hardly gets talked about intrusive thoughts OCD. I hope this book helps others better understand their condition as well.

Book Extract

Thoughts which I thought were dangerous

Oh I was examining stabbing someone also slitting some ones throat so I thought it cannot be that easy to do that so I put the knife to my throat gave my throat the slitting maneuver obviously not doing it too hard but hard for a tiny cut or scrape across the throat area. I got a bit paranoid that the neighbors or family members saw me doing that so I decided never to do that again. I thought what would happen if I stabbed one of my family members in the chest oh what would I do trying to save their life, I will call the ambulance right away. Now this is the thing that out of everything scared me the most was attacking someone with a hammer after watching a film about the serial killer Jeffrey dahmer who was a murderer and sex offender He killed his victims by smashing their heads with a hammer usually. I started to get the urges to do the same thing but I was fighting it constantly I thought that would be the most horrible death ever getting your head smashed by a hammer. Every time I saw a hammer lying around the house I would try to get rid of it by throwing it outside as this made me feel better. Usually when I was coming back from college I would normally go through the backdoor entrance and I always walked by this big mallet type hammer which always played on my mind as my mind was telling me to use it on someone in the house.
