Does OCD Make Your Child Doubt Their Memory?
This video is for educational purposes only and is not intended to replace the guidance of a qualified professional.
OCD loves to cause doubt and so it makes sense that OCD would sometimes target your child’s memory. This can show up in various ways. Here are a few examples:
They might worry they won’t remember their schoolwork.
They might worry they’ll lose all their memories.
They might worry they don’t remember doing something bad.
This can cause an array of compulsions. They might:
Read and re-read
Study and study again
Make compulsive links
Avoid things they think will impact their memory
Review their actions
And those are just a few of a zillion compulsions they could do with this type of intrusive thought.
In this week’s Youtube video for kids and teens, I talk about the various ways OCD can target their memory and what they can do about it.
