A person can have only one obsession. I have only one but have been dx'ed with OCD. Also, classic OCD has observable compulsions, but with "pure O" OCD, the compulsions are mental. For instance, do you find yourself trying to distract or to think about something else when you have the thought that bothers you? Or do you have any other tricks to get through it like rationalizing to yourself, telling yourself something to soothe the fear? That would be an OCD compulsion. Pure O OCD is a misnomer because it isn't just obsessions--there are compulsions, but again, they are internal, mental, and other people can't see them (as they would see a hand washer).
