The national OCD charity, run by and for people with lived experience of OCD
Louisa - COVID & OCD
"This is supposed to represent some
of the reoccurring thoughts and
obsessions that many people with
OCD may be struggling with at the
moment, due to the pandemic.
It can of course be very
overwhelming and I think it’s
very important to stress the
difference between these frightening
and consistent thoughts,
and just being hygienic.
From what I’ve seen, people have
been throwing around the word ‘OCD’
very loosely, just because
they may be more cautious about
washing their hands than usual.
But it’s very important for us
to highlight the importance of
breaking down these stereotypes,
they just devalue what people with
OCD are going through at the moment."
