Hi, I am 14 years old and have OCD. A couple of months before I knew I had this disorder, I had a really creepy nightmare about my father physically abusing me when I was a toddler. It really freaked me out at first, but I calmed down eventually, telling myself that it was just a dream and it meant nothing. But now, I've been having obsessive thoughts about whether or not he actually did it and I got amnesia after it. Could this be a symptom of OCD too??? Or could this actually be a true memory??? Help, please!

Hi there, in my experience with my ocd, being unsure of so many things, is a big part of it, i had a similar incident when i had a vivid dream about verbally abusing a friend, it didnt happen, but my mind told me there was a chance, i racked my brain for days, even visiting the location of where i thought it took place to reassure myself that it didnt happen, this was my ocd, i understand where your coming from, i know this is easier said than done but try to overcome the obsession, thats all it is. best wishes fellow sufferer, take care Paul

I've dreamed about my loved ones dying before... the dreams are so detailed and realistic that I wake up positive that it actually happened, that they're dead.
Dreams are not reality, and rape allegations are seriously devastating.
If you do not recall your father raping you, I suggest you try to forget the dream and never mention this to anyone.
Best of luck to you.
PS if the rape you dreamed about involved actual intercourse, I can pretty much guarantee you it didn't happen. An adult man having sex with a toddler would result in serious bodily injury to the child, injuries which could not be overlooked or ignored.
