I am familiar with Harm OCD. At the same time, of course I have had many homicidal feelings and feelings of wanting to hurt people. Generally people who I hated for this or that reason. I have even fantasized about murdering them, how I would go about it, how I would pull it off, etc. Those thoughts were extremely pleasant, and of course I never tried to stop them a single time, although I tried to make sure I didn’t actually do it because I didn’t think it would be a good idea for a lot of reasons. I might get caught, number 1. The victim might turn on me and kill me, number 2. I might not be able to live well with myself afterwards, number 3. And last, wondering if even my worst enemies on this Earth deserve the death penalty via me. I assure you that I did not try to stop any of these feelings, urges, behaviors or thoughts! Never, never, never, never, not even one time did I try to stop a thought, feeling, urge or action like that. True violent feelings are so completely different from OCD they are like from different planets. I am also familiar with sexual OCD. I am also heterosexual and have had about a trillion sexual thoughts, feelings, urges, etc. towards mature females of a variety of ages. I assure you that never a single time did I ever resist any of those thoughts, feelings or urges. Not once, not ever, ever, ever. Real sexual thoughts are so different from sexual OCD that once again, they seem like they’re from another planet. I have asked people without OCD and they told me that they simply never try to stop their thoughts. One person said, “I only think about things I want to think about.” They said they had never tried to stop a single thought in their entire lives. In my opinion, if you try to stop the thoughts, feelings, urges, etc., then it’s OCD. Period.
