This site discusses those strange, bizarre and disturbing OCD thoughts, sometimes called Purely Obsessional Compulsive Disorder (or “Pure-O”). Things like: “Is that cop following me?”, “Is my breathing weird?”, or “Have I hurt someone and not known it?”
Most people consider the whole OCD issue, but this group has mainly just the obsessions and hardly any of the compulsions.
This website also includes help for family and friends, books and articles, downloadable audio, and information for therapists.
The Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (DBSA) is the leading peer-directed national organization focusing on the two most prevalent mental health conditions, depression and bipolar disorder. Our peer-based, wellness-oriented, and empowering services and resources are available when people need them, where they need them, and how they need to receive them—online 24/7, in local support groups, in audio and video casts, or in printed materials distributed by DBSA, our chapters, and mental health care facilities across America.
