My daughter has started getting bad thoughts that pop up when she is bored. Has just been away on holiday and has not had any thoughts? Does this sound like OCD? I have had her tested by a Psychologist and she is adamant that the child does not have OCD. Has anyone experienced this. It has had no effect on school or her social life.

It is great that she is sharing her anxiety with you. Have her see a therapist that specializes in OCD, Allison Solomon in Chandler Arizona is amazing. Ocd is when she gets compulsions to make the bad thoughts go away. She feels anxiety so she does stuff to relieve it. Like touch the door five time, wash her hands over and over, check the lights on or off, lock doors a lot, or have to count, there are tons of variations. Talking back to OCD is a great book, she may be doing compulsive stuff and doesn't know it you need to observe and or ask questions a lot of good info on OCD websights...check lists...symptoms.
