  1. I hope you don't mind me referencing again one of my favourites shows, for instance through this fan-made compliation music video: https://youtu.be/fjtnHieN_n4?list=PLNm5ZnWoRoW2-1qcrCMiVtuql1csWscgK If you don't want to watch the whole video (for what ever reason, for instance that it's full of spoilers), you may try the very beginning, but mainly the excerpt beginning here: https://youtu.be/fjtnHieN_n4?list=PLNm5ZnWoRoW2-1qcrCMiVtuql1csWscgK&t=93 Or... it's easier to just read it here:
  2. Hello, @Chickadee, welcome! I hope you'll find here what you're looking for. Feel free to write us more about yourself and / or join other topics on the forum! Take care!
  3. I'm so glad you'll going to see an OCD therapist soon ad that you're already taking meds than can help! I know it's all very difficult for you now, but you're well aware that killing yourself over such a thing would be absurd. And you also know you haven't done anything bad, it's only a problem of your mind that sometimes causes the misleading thought that you have. You wouldn't forget it. The false memory is a creation of your mind. Is there anything you could do in the meantime to clam down and re-direct your attention when you feel so agitated and guilty? What has helped in the past?
  4. That is interesting, u. o., in several ways!
  5. Hello again, @ineedhelp! I've just seen this video - perhaps it would be good for you to see it, too

    Escapes

    Thanks, @geronimo! I've seen all the episodes of Would I lie to you available on YouTube (possibly all that have been broadcasted)! I also have a few of David Mitchell's (audio)books. On YouTube, I think the possibly best of his content is this series - perhaps you'll like it, too : https://www.youtube.com/user/davidmitchellsoapbox (It's been fascinating to me how very similar we are in opinions (and even some preferences and attitudes)! After all I've heard from him, I identified only about 3 opinions in which we differ (and with regard to just the huge number of opinons he said
  7. Hi, Vevey, welcome! I think communicating in a written form shouldn't be a problem. (A good old pen and paper would be fine, but if you prefer technology....) It's sad that yor mom doesn't believe you. She probably doesn't know about selective mutism https://selectivemutismcenter.org/whatisselectivemutism/ or just doesn't admit that it could happen in her family. I wonder if finding a way to communicate with the doctor other than talking is the only thing that worries you and that you'd like to 'talk' about here. If you feel like searching for possible reasons of your inabili

    Escapes

    Any fans of The Peep Show here? I still haven't seen it, just some episodes on YouTube (it's not accessible on Netflix where we currently live), but I've watched many excerpts, for instance: WARNING: A lot of "bad language"...

    Escapes

    Interesting. Why would those be a "guilty" pleasure??
  10. Hello and welcome! What you describe is definitely not pedophilia; it's POCD. Remember; having intrusive thoughts does not make you a bad person. They are a misfiring in the brain, not a reflection of your character. Have you already read enough about this diagnosis? For instance here: https://moodsmith.com/pocd/ http://www.ocdspecialists.com/pedophile-ocd/ https://www.madeofmillions.com/ocd/pedophilia-ocd It's great that you're already open to get professional help!! That's the only effective way of getting your life back to normal. You have no reason to

    Escapes

    Since the beginning of last year, I love to escape "to another, fictional, hell" ;o) , or, rather, "to the devil": The series Lucifer on Netflix (plus many of the things around on YouTube and social media - like outtakes, fan-made videos, ...) is something I could call "my guilty pleasure". Here are some musical excerpts: (warning; early in this first video, a murder takes place, unfortunately (it spoils the song!)) :
  12. I'm very glad, @Klingsor, that you don't experience that anymore! It's very good to know you have, at least, this peace and quiet. BTW, when I was volunteering (for 2 years) as an "active listener" (on the "help-line", or, rather, "support-line"), some people complained about their neighbours almost all the time.
  13. OMG, who would even click on a video like that?!
  14. Yes, that's the problem: Many pets are totally OK in the sens that they don't make any noise, aren't dangerous, don't stink, ... while some neighbours can do / be all of that! Do you have a problem with your neighbours? (Ours are terribly noisy almost every day between around 23:30 and 1:30 and - what's even worse - smoke cigarets and weed very often and the smoke enters our apartment... Sometimes (/often) I was so very angry! It makes me more angry than most other things.)
  15. Hello, Catmom, welcome back! What a nice surprise! How have you been doing?
  16. Hello and welcome! I'm sorry you've been struggling so much with this all and you haven't yet found a psychotherapist! The pandemics shouldn't be a problem in this regard; on-line therapy existed even years ago, now many more therapists offer it, so I hope you'll find a good one soon. (The problem I can see here is that you might perhaps profit from hypnotherapy. But I just imagine it because that could perhaps convince you most easily that "the thing" didn't happen.) Medication is helpful in everyday life, but I'm sure talking with a professional can "go to the roots" of the issue and
  17. I'd like to add that I wish you to watch anything you like without thinking about any implications and opinions that others might have about it. (But I see that it's not that easy when one's been so much under the influence of mean or stupid people who had belittled him for no reason etc. But imagine that you can "defy" them by learning to enjoy things without letting them spoil them for you by thoughts about their opinions. )
  18. I'm sorry you feel this way. I would never make that connection and I don't see it there even now, when I understand, from your post, why it could be made by some. This is also what I expect from a movie or series I'd like to watch!!!
  19. What's happened, @Klingsor? Also, I've been wondering about your new job - how is it going? (I'm sorry your private blog is gone .) Feel free to post about it anywhere you want.
  20. A comedy song about "these times" in show-business:
  21. Hi, @RyVi, I'm sorry I haven't noticed your posts earlier! I'm sorry you're so confused and thus suffer even more, as if the OCD wasn't enough. It doesn't matter so much in practice if you can find an appropriate classification of your condition, but I can see that it can provide some reassurance and perhaps even help you to seek help. In my opinion, the fears you describe fit perfectly in this category: https://www.ocdtypes.com/religious-ocd.php (Although it seem also be related to this in a way (?): https://www.ocdtypes.com/sexual-ocd.php) Does it help to know?

    Why Are We Here?

    Good questions, Mark. I don't know. But to me, this site provides the possibility of written contact with some people I know a bit and I like them and I like this possibility to come when it suits me and to 'interact'. It's perhaps more like a social network / medium now. When I remember "the old times", I have to admit I liked it here much more then. But it's not because I don't like the people who are now here, just... the greater number of contributors about more diversified topics was more stimulating and engaging and, mainly, provided more possibilities to some help to emerge from all tho
