Unhappy needing advice

Hi there,
I am new to the board. I believe I have had OCD for some time but it seems to be getting worse lately. It started with me being obsessively scared about contracting HIV. Recently I have come upon a fear that I find more frightening for some reason. I have become terrified that I will get sent to prison for a crime that I didn't commit. I am probably one of the most law abiding people around, having never gotten so much as a traffic ticket in the past 10 years. Over the week-end I had gotten a cut that was bleeding pretty badly and was holding a paper towel over it and when I threw it in the garbage I noticed that the wind had blown it out rather than pick it back up off the groud (and trigger my hiv fear) I left it there and moments later began to worry, "what if someone who has committed a crime finds the paper towel and somehow transfers my blood to their crime scene". I know while I'm writing this that is sounds crazy but for some reason my fear persists. Has anyone had a fear like this and if so has anything worked for you to get over it? Thank you so much for any help.
