Hit and Run OCD
Have you ever hit a bump with your car and wondered what it was? Most people do, but when this happens it’s a question for a few seconds and then their brain moves on. What is every bump you hit he wondered if it was a person. Every noise you heard me do you wonder if you had somebody. Maybe your brains even telling you that you want to hit somebody on purpose. You obsessively check your mirrors to make sure the pedestrian wasn’t hit. It’s possible you go back to make sure that you didn’t hit somebody. You feel a lot of anxiety and stress about this. You do not feel comfort until you get a verification that you didn’t actually hit someone. If this sounds like you, you might struggle with OCD. More specifically hit and run OCD. Some put this in the category of harm OCD.
Let’s go through how someone may experience hit and run OCD and what the treatment looks like.
