Religious OCD


Recommended Posts

Is anyone here familiar with religious obsessive-compulsive disorder? I've been struggling with it for a long time. I'm not taking medication, nor am I seeing a therapist because my family is rather dysfunctional and I'm uninsured, as I can't currently work because of my physical disabilities. Is it possible to see any improvements if I try to apply cognitive-behavioral treatment on myself according to instructions from online courses and internet videos? 🤔

Constant blasphemous mental images about God and the saints, that produce severe guilt as they are correlated to thoughts about sins from the past, and the constant need to neutralize them through good thoughts and prayer. 😭

Hi, I had suffered from religious OCD. The thing that helped me a lot was letting the thoughts flow. If there is a blasphemous thought just go along with it, it can't harm you it is just mental garbage. God knows you are suffering from OCD and those aren't you real feelings, OCD is just garbage. I would recommend therapy, because it has helped me a lot for this particular problem, but if that is not an option try to read some books about it. I recommend Stop Obsessing by Edna Foa, its a great book and addresses the religious obsession questions you have.
