False Memory OCD
What Is False Memory OCD?
False Memory OCD is not a well known subtype of obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). In fact it affects a lot of people around the world and causes them significant problems and anxiety. It is called “false memory OCD”, as there would be no actual evidence that something has happened. Those who suffer from this condition tell stories that they have done something very wrong, such as murder or rape, but there is a complete lack of evidence that they had committed such an act. Also, they would be hesitant to let these memories go, believing that, despite the lack of evidence, there is a chance that they did something bad, even feeling guilty about it and demanding to know the absolute truth.

I no longer need to feel anxious waiting for the next opportunity to do this exposure. When it comes to OCD, exposure and response prevention is the gold standard treatment. I try to demonstrate through this video how to react to an exposure and do it purposefully.
