Washing fears away: It certainly appears that you are struggling with fears and compulsive behaviors suggestive of anxiety symptoms characteristic of OCD. Such fears and behaviors have a significant impact on your quality of life. However, this condition is treatable. Recommend that you see a mental health professional for further evaluation. Specific types of medication and counseling are available. All the best.
