Unhappy ocd??? Please help

It's my first time here. Believe me you are not alone! I have had ocd since I was in high school. it would go back and forth over time. The last year or so I have been fine. Then just last month I got married and bam it's back. I have thought like is he ugly, stupid. should, i have married him, ect... also i have thoughts of hurting him or me and I cant take it anymore. Also ex boyfriends pop in my head it could just be their name face ect... then I find myself talking to myself to try to make it better so i think, like if i think my husband is ugly i will try to cover it up with someone else. Or i will just repeat things in my head like i hate so in so , just anyone as long as its not mu husband. it's not just ex's either that pop in my head it can be anyone family members, strangers, ect.. and it seems to happen at the most inappropriate times. like i was kissing my husband and his dad popped in my head. I hate this !! Sometimes its like im scared to be around my husband because then it happen more. I love my husband he is the best thing that has ever happened to me , and I can talk to him about everything but i still don't feel better i just want it to go away. can anyone relate to me.....please I cant do this anymore!!!!!

Yes, I can relate. I've been dealing with these same thoughts and feelings as long as I have been married (11 years). The only way (in my opinion) to stop it is to not be afraid of it and to not add emotion to it; just accept it as a thought and allow yourself to move on with whatever your doing. It may be annoying but it doesn't have to control you. Once you do this it will mostly go away. I've come a long way and now if I have an intrusive thought I immediately know what it is and I kind of give it a dirty look and think to myself "what? how ridiculous, that's an upsurd thought." Don't get me wrong its still annoying but it doesn't control me.
