Hey everyone, newbie here. I was diagnosed a while back with OCD. I never believed my doctor because of the things you typically see on TV (constant washing of hands, walking back and forth, etc) I dont have a fixation on those things much, but ive been nonchalant about finding out more of this disorder because im worried if I read more on it then I will start to feel like I make sense? Is that a hypochondriac? IDK. But anyways...I just wanted to ask if anyone else obsesses over food. I know many people suffer from eating disorders, but for me, its not that I starve myself, its just that I know food is around me...and ive gotta have it, even if im not hungry, just to have a sound mind for the time being. Sometimes I see commercials on TV about McDonalds, Jack in the Box, and I know they have food, and im not even hungry, nor am I a fast food junkie, but I know they have it, and I need to get it. Sorta like a pack rat...but with food. Ive gained so much weight from this. Anyone feel this way?

PS: This week im obsessing over a buying a boat (im not the richest person in the world, nor do I even have a main use for one) but i want a boat with a little cute flag. Hehe. this OCD is quite a riot.

Well, my OCD mostly stems from hypochondria. So, I'm constantly worrying about my health. I sometimes obsess over food-related issues, but not like the one you're suffering from.

I will become paranoid that something I ate was poisoned or just rotten...and I'll get sick. Possibly even die. Yeah, really out there things...but the fears/thoughts can't be helped. I'm sure you understand that, heh.

Anyway, I'm sorry that I can't help you on your problem. I hope things get better for you.

This does happen with me. I think about coffee and get anxious until I jump in the car and get it! Commercials for food definitely should be avoided if you don't want to give in to these temptations.

I overeat but I don't think it's OCD. I think it's just an eating disorder. Especially's like I eat them like I'm never going to eat another sweet in my life. I don't get it, it's really weird. Maybe it is OCD, I don't know.
