i have intrusive thoughts that i get anxious and panic about (harming myself and others or doing something inappropriate etc) but have no checking rituals thus pure-obsessive ocd (pure-o)

my main problem is that i still get over-anxious about things and then i interpret those anxious feelings as possibly going crazy or losing control or something terrible, the difference now from before is that i have anxiety all the time instead of just during a panic attack

> One more question--how did you get diagnosed w/ OCD-O? That seems like a somewhat unusual diagnosis. (I think) many clinicians would just lump that into part of your GAD. Is there a reason that they thought it would be most helpful to diagnose you OCD-O?
