Re: Ocd with reading
I experience this myself. I will read a sentence over again in my head until I read it with perfect inflection and pronunciation. It's not a problem for me and I have disciplined myself to stop when these moments present themselves.
On the note of fear of unfortunate events occurring if you don't "read the sentence correctly or a certain number of times," my best advice is to just STOP!
I experienced this myself durring High School and the only way to "get over it" was to drop my fears; which is to say, stop giving in to their "demands" and instead force these shadowy threats to prove their power... they had NONE! In your mind, DARE those things to happen by your indifference to them; make those situations do the work of finding themselves into reality, instead of holding yourself hostage to the perceived threat of their occurrence.
You'll quickly find that THEY DO NOT HAPPEN and your world quickly becomes a MUCH more pleasant experience day-to-day!
Take care and God Bless!
