Hi guys. I'm jarvy. I was raised in a Catholic family, went to Sunday school, some Catholic school, and all that though I was never confirmed. So I figured this would be a good group to join as I'm trying to reconnect with my faith. Anyway, I've been having this problem with what I think is scrupulosity. I have these repeating OCD-like blasphemous thoughts and even sexual thoughts about religious figures. No matter how hard I try I can't get these thoughts out of my head. So I went to look up "blasphemous thoughts mortal sin" to see if blasphemous thoughts are a mortal sin and the first couple articles that came up about this were about scrupulosity. It seems that this affliction is now considered an offshoot of OCD. Further reflection revealed that I had other OCD-like symptoms such as counting. Anyway, this was all very inconvenient as I had just gone to confession and was looking forward to receiving communion. So I went a couple weeks without receiving communion at Mass because I was afraid I was committing a mortal sin. At first I thought I had some control over these thoughts but now it seems I have no control. If I could make these thoughts go away and never come back I would but I can't. I told my psychiatrist and he switched up my medicine and I started therapy for them. Anyway, last Sunday I decided to say "it's just my scrupulosity. I haven't killed anyone. I'm gonna receive communion." And I did. So my question to you all is do you think I did the right thing? Should I have gone to confession again? Did I commit sacrilege? It doesn't feel like I did but I have my doubts. The reason I didn't just goto confession was because I knew that if I went to confession it would be embarrassing to confess all these thoughts only to start having them again as I left the confessional. Thanks in advance.
