I have the same form of OCD, obessional thinking, or obessional worrying over something. I didn't realise I had OCD until just recently when it became very bad, where I felt like I was losing control of my thoughts, and couldn't stop thinking about things over and over again, but ever since being just a little dude I would do things like switch my bedroom light switch on and off a number of times before an event that made me anixous, or I would count constantly numbers in my head, and then as I started multiplying them and adding and subtracting, and it was always weird because it was like a sub conscious thing that I had like no control over.....meds of Obessional thinking and OCD are pretty limited, SSRI'S probably won't have much of an effect depending on the OCD of the person...the only thing that works a little bit for me is benzo's. But because in Australia by law a person is only allowed to take benzos for upto 4 weeks only, which sucks majorly, and so I really have to just try and deal with it, and it's hard to deal with obessional thinking when it becomes really bad, I think obessional thinking is worse than obessions that have rituals to follow them, like some people wash themselves a lot, and have fears of being infected, and by doing rituals it usually calms down their anxiety.....but I don't have a ritual, and it seems you don't either, but I do keep my bedroom very clean and hate having things out of order....and still mess around with counting numbers. I am soon starting CBT which I hope works, I think CBT along with a band-aid like valium, or klonopin would be the best thing for you to try.
