So my boyfirend's mum. I guess pretty much call her mother in law now since my boyfriend and I have been together for 6 years.
Let's put it this way his mum is very difficult. Even my boyfriend and his brother and there father say so. Even she says it.
But I don't think she knows how to overcome her cycle of behaviour.
Anyway
Last year my boyfriend , his mum and I were talking upon the subject about ghost. She randomly told me and my boyfriend was there too. "I know how to do voodoo" now this scared me and I also found the comment strange too. I mean my mum or other people I know of wouldn't say that. It also freaked me out a bit because I had this strange feeling for a long time that she did witchcraft. I mean there is no evidence to support it than what she said. But Im afraid what she said is sort of a threat in a way. I mean how do you know if someone voodoo spell on you? On a side note I suffer from OCD and anxiety so it freaks me out even more so than the normal person. Help!
It's been bothering me since last year she came overseas and said that comment.

@SlapPaw,
There is no reality to voodoo or curses. Don't let superstition and baseless fears interfere with your life. This is just nonsense. Having OCD has nothing to do with belief in witch's curses or voodoo. Just get a hold of your fears. especially the ones that have no connection to the real world.

@SlapPaw,
Sometimes the fear is more real than the object. Rag and I may assure you at length that ghosts, voodoo, etc. are not real, but you must take that understanding to yourself.

I have more thoughts but will save them for now as I keep reading.

A basic rule of witchcraft cultures is: a witch will never casually admit to being a witch, ever. It'd be like a murderer casually admitting to being a murderer... Your mother in law is just bragging.

@Ragman,
There are different types of OCD
It's not must cleaning or checking or counting as a typical person would think. No there is Magical Thinking Intrusive Thoughts - is the fear is that even thinking about something bad will make it more likely to happen - sometimes also called ‘thought-action fusion’.
Sufferers are beset by intrusive bad thoughts. They try to dispel them by performing rituals - magic rituals, in effect - that are often bizarre and time-consuming and involve linking actions or events that could not possibly be related to each other. For example having the thought 'I may strangle someone' is regarded as being as reprehensible as actually strangling a person. Another example is believing that simply imagining a horrific car crash will increase the likelihood of such a crash taking place, or a person may feel that if they don’t count to ten ‘just right’ harm will come to a family member. Other examples of magical thinking, or thought-action fusion intrusive thoughts include:

A certain colour or number has good or bad luck associated with it.
Certain days have good or bad luck associated with them.
A loved one’s death can be predicted.
One’s thoughts can cause disasters to occur.
Stepping on cracks in the pavement can make bad things happen.
Whatever comes to mind can come true.
Breaking chain letters will actually bring bad luck.
Attending a funeral will bring death.
One can inadvertently cause harm to others with thoughts or carelessness.
Hearing the word ‘death’ will mean repeating the word ‘life’ to prevent death.
In each example listed above, the thoughts and events happening could not possibly ever be linked, but the person with OCD will believe that this possibility does exist, and as a result, this will cause them immense stress and anxiety. As a result, their silent internal compulsive behaviours will take hours, and often prevent them interacting with anyone else during this time.
