I am a person who suffers from religious OCD, otherwise known as scrupulosity. I’m also an atheist. This seeming contradiction is the result of many things. I was raised Roman Catholic (mom) and Seventh Day Adventist-ish (dad). I was somewhat devout. I loved Jesus. I tried to live a Christian life as much as possible. Around the age of 16 or 17 I had my first experience with scrupulosity. This made me question everything including God, life, reality, morality, who and what I am and my own sanity. I went from someone who believed that going into the priesthood was a strong possibility to not believing in God. Well here I am again at 37 and I still deal with scrupulosity. My goal is to educate people that even atheists can suffer from any type of OCD and that there is hope of recovery from this condition. Some of my views can be offensive or heretical to most religious people, but understand that I’m just one person trying to make sense out of the world for my self. I can tell you right now that I do not have all the answers. My intention is not to offend, but to understand. The goal of this website is to help people get information and recover from OCD, to explain what I believe and why, and to document the results of my recovery so that others can learn from it. It is my sincere wish that you find peace and prosper regardless of the conflict our personal beliefs may have.
all the best with this
