Keep washing my hands! Watch

    I can't stop washing my hands, I worry about getting diseases from toilets, touching things in public, when I eat and drink worrying that my dog will get something and get seriously ill. I keep getting panicked, I have to keep washing my hands and I can't not because the danger feels real. I also keep checking the floor to check that nothing dangerous has fallen out of my bag or anything. I feel so physically ill at the moment. I am waiting to have CBT but I think the waiting list is really long. I just don't know what to do.

    Have you spoken to a doctor, this sounds like anxiety/ocd so I would strongly recommend getting it properly diagnosed, have you tried talking? It's a form of cbt and ok can find helpful videos in now to do it on YouTube, personally I think it's really helpful to help me calm down, is there anyone you can speak to like family or friends?
