About Pure O
Pure O, or Purely Obsessional OCD, is a type of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) that is characterized by intrusive thoughts and mental rituals. It is often referred to as “pure ocd” because it does not involve the physical compulsions that are associated with other forms of OCD. People with Pure O experience recurrent and persistent thoughts, doubts, and mental images that can cause significant distress and anxiety. These thoughts can be related to any number of topics, such as fear of contamination, fear of harm, or fear of making mistakes. While the thoughts can be distressing, people with Pure O do not typically engage in the physical compulsions that are associated with other forms of OCD.
It is important to understand the signs and symptoms of Pure O in order to seek appropriate treatment. Common signs and symptoms of Pure O include excessive rumination, intrusive thoughts, and mental rituals such as counting, repeating words, or checking. People with Pure O may also experience difficulty concentrating, difficulty sleeping, and feelings of guilt or shame. If you think you may be experiencing Pure O, it is important to seek help from a mental health professional. A mental health professional can help you to identify the signs and symptoms of Pure O and provide you with the necessary treatment.
