Hi, guys —
In the past week, I have been diagnosed with
probable religious obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) or religious scrupulosity. I started
a medication, but it will take at least a
few weeks to work. Because of this, I have
had three Confessions in one week, each time
trying to get more detailed.
My life is pure torture right now. In my last
Confession, I wrote down my sins, which included:
"I have had impure thoughts and desires."
I read it to the priest, though, I just said:
"I have had impure thoughts" and
did not include "and desires."
Now I am very worried that my Confession wasn't
valid because I may have purposefully left
out a mortal sin. In my more logical thinking,
I said "impure thoughts," so it
should be forgiven as desires are thoughts
or, at least, very similar.
- Was I still forgiven for my sin of having
I just want to be reassured, so that I don't
have to redo the whole thing.
