>it's just with these it at times seems I actually like it which scares me ect ect.

It is not uncommon for patients with OCD suffering pedophilic obsessions sometimes get sensations in their privates which they will mistake for real arousal.

The thought that you 'actually like' the thoughts is part of the OCD. The challenge is to confront those thoughts, agree with them and disregard them as more nonsense. Again you're being scared of being scared of something that's not real.

>my mind has changed and I guess "I don't joke around" with my thoughts.

I implore you to change that policy because humor goes a long way to diffusing fear and anxiety.

>I know they are not real, but maybe it seems at some level I lack insight?

I don't think you lack insight, I just think very wrapped up in feeling afraid.

>What are your thoughts on amantadine?

I've seen one case study which was positive.

I have used it myself and perceived no effect.
