1st, wash my hands then scrub my nails underneth.
2nd,wash my hair and wash my ear, digging the hole and above.
3rd step,i will wash my hands with soap
4th,wash my face with cleanser
5th,take some soap and wash the soap bottle and shower cap and everything that i have touched before bathing.
6th,i will take soap and wash my body
7th,i will wash my hands with soap again and nails
8th,i wear specs,so,i will wash my specs with soap
9th, i wash my hands with soap again.
10th,i will wash my feets,scrubbing inbetween toes and toe nails.
then lastly,i will splash the toilet door with water so that i feel it is clean and i will open the door without soaping my hands again.but now,my condition got worst and i wash my hands with soap even after splashing the door with water.
i wash my nails for about 20mins!
i cant stop myself! im really tired..
everytime i bathe for so long,i feel hungry and sad..i feel like crying out but i cant because i need to quicky bathe finish before my father gets home.
im very stress studying in this school.. but i know the problem lies with me and not that boy.and i cant correct myself..my teacher knows about my problem and arranged a school counsellor to help me.but,on the 1st course with her she ask me to write down my background and thats all.she did not ask me back anymore.so i came to the internet and look for help and i found this website.i hope someone can help me..im studying in chestnut drive - sec 4

im writting this again because i cant really read what im writting..

im just pouring all my thoughts here..

i realy need help..

i dont want to be like this for the rest of my life..

I seriously need help..

i have been like this for 1 and a half year.

i have a bad mentallity problem.

There is a boy in my class which is completely like any of us,

but he has many pimple on his face and many rashes on his hands and arm and legs.

He also stutter and has a short tongue and he is also fat.

i felt so disgusted when looking at him!

i would wash my schoolbag and bathe for about 2 hours or more,

washing every area throughly and make sure it is clean.

and everyday, after coming home from school,

i would get my water-which is actually for me to drink,

and wash my hands then i will be able to make myself open the gate and get inside the house.

and then,i will fell that the gate is dirty because i think then i am dirty staying in the same class with that boy.

my mum told me he is nothing at all.

i believe what she says but i dare not to step out and make the first move
like stop washing my bag and bathing for 2hrs.

i am afraid that i might become worst
and get the dettol wipe to clean the area where i put my bag
and maybe even dare not to sleep on my bed because i bathe fast[ means not bathing properly ].

everyday, if i did go to school,i would bathe like this.

1st, wash my hands then scrub my nails underneth.

2nd,wash my hair and wash my ear, digging the hole and above.

3rd step,i will wash my hands with soap

4th,wash my face with cleanser

5th, take some soap and wash the soap bottle
and shower cap and everything that i have touched before bathing.

6th,i will take soap and wash my body

7th, i will wash my hands with soap again and nails

8th,i wear specs,so,i will wash my specs with soap

9th, i wash my hands with soap again.

10th,i will wash my feets,scrubbing inbetween toes and toe nails.

then lastly,i will splash the toilet door with water so that i feel it is clean
and i will open the door without soaping my hands again.

but now, my condition got worst
and i wash my hands with soap even after splashing the door with water.

i wash my nails for about 20mins!
i cant stop myself!
im really tired..
everytime i bathe for so long,i feel hungry and sad..i feel like crying out
but i cant because i need to quicky bathe finish before my father gets home.

im very stress studying in this school..
but i know the problem lies with me and not that boy.
and i cant correct myself..

my teacher knows about my problem and arranged a school counsellor to help me.
but,on the 1st course with her she ask me to write down my background and thats all.
she did not ask me back anymore
and i feel that she thinks that my problem is very bad and is like uncurable..

so i came to the internet and look for help and i found this website.

i hope someone can help me..im studying in chestnut drive - sec 4 help me please ! im really very tired and i feel like going for suicide.. seriously..

Confusedboy,

Can you go back to the GC at school, and let them know you really need to talk?

There is help out there for you, have you talked to your parents about what your going through?

If you feel as bad as you say in which I believe you must, you can also call a (800) hotline to talk to someone. Where I live people can call 211, which is a local hotline for people that are possibly suicidal, or going through difficult times. Look in your phone book where you live and in the front of it there should be a list of phone numbers that you can call for help.

I really hope you can hook up with a counselor or therapist for help with this. Go back to your school counselor and try one more time to get the support you need.

My best to you,

- Ma Strong

Confusedboy,

You are not alone and you are OK! I am not a psychologist, but I recognize your behaviors as what may be Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. I have had experience with this with a close family member. It is treatable!!
You can read about it on the internet and speak to your counselor at school ASAP. Please keep us posted.

Confusedboy,

I want to really applaud you for coming here to seek help. You aren't crazy and your issue is incurable. There are many children and adults with this same problem and they have been helped greatly by medicine and behavior therapy. Here is a website on Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) for kids and their families. I suggest you read it and then insist that your parents take read it with you. If they still make light of it, talk to your teacher,counselor, principal, grandparents, or even call your family doctor and make an appointment, in which case your parents have to go with you. Keep fighting for yourself and don't quit until someone listens to you. You aren't crazy, you just know yourself!

Confused boy, are you in England? If so, the resources you may have available to you may be somewhat different than in the US, but please be reassured that your condition is treatable. Go back to the counselor at school - they surely don't realize how badly you feel, and should be able to lead you in the right direction. Do you feel comfortable approaching your parents? They may be more understanding than you think, and will surely support you in seeking help.
You did the right thing to come here and ask for help. That is the first step in making things better.

im singaporean and i just had counseling today..
the counseller suggest i go for a test to see if i really have OCD..

today, i thought of what my principal said yesterday about the bathing thing.

i think maybe i can just bathe quicky and ignore this matter but i will think that i am dirty for the rest of my life.

and if i tried it,
next time i changed school and i feel clean,
i may still think that i am dirty becoz i did not bathe properly..

should i see a counseller or should i just ignore the matter and think i am dirty for the rest of my life?

someone tell me pls..

ConfusedBoy,

I'm so glad to hear you went to counseling! You ask if you should ignore the matter.. absolutely not. The counselor will be able to help you work thru this so that you don't have thoughts of feeling 'dirty', etc. You should be very proud of yourself for taking this step! Please keep us posted on your progress 🙂

Please don't ignore this - it won't go away unless you really face it. A counselor will help you find ways to deal with it. You have taken a big step to come to this site and ask for help. That took a lot of courage and strength. It also shows that you want to be rid of this compulsion. Please continue to pursue the counseling. We all wish you the best. Continue to post here - we will help you, too, all we can.

Good for you for going for counseling! Like the others have said, Please do not ignore this, but go for the test and do not keep searching until you get to the bottom of this. As you read on the site I gave you, you aren't alone and you have many of the symptoms named there. So keep at it.

I'm very proud of you for seeking help, coming here, going to the counselor, and updating us. You are very bright and hardworking and you deserve to put that energy else where instead of thinking about bathing all the time. Hang in there and keep us posted!

this has nothing to do with the boy...you have obsessive-compulsive disorder....meaning things you touch,you must wash your hands for fear of germs,you do need to see a Psychotherapist for this.
