Default anyone who has suffered from scrupulosity.

I've come to the conclusion, after some research i may have a related issue.

Here's a little background. At a young age i used to have sadistic/sexual thoughts.(never acted upon) At the same time i grew up in a very religious Church. Sometime in my early teens i developed an overwhelming sense of guilt over these thoughts, and it followed me to my early adulthood(i'm 20 now.)

The sense of guilt dissipated for sometime when i started Cognitive Therapy. But after a recent church related interview, these feelings returned.(Say Jan 2011?) and have followed me throughout the year, I think this all may be a mild form of SCRUPULOSITY, as the feelings don't fade after repentance, etc.

Anyone who has suffered from this, please reach out and give me some advice on how i can go about overcoming this(Books, Therapy)

or anyone who's had a related issue

Well if someone told you "Don't think of a Zebra" you are going to think of a zebra. A lot of bad thoughts get into our head and many of them placed their by Satan. The best thing you can do is don't entertain them and dismiss them. You cannot think of two things at once. You can remove those thoughts by singing a favorite hymnn or reciting a scripture.
