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.

Hey you should give me your snap or something, I’m 16 and going through the same issue with 2 false memories. I think we feel this way because of the solitude we have been spending during quarantine and our minds have wandered for the worse unfortunately. I believe we could help eachother get through this tho
