Doubts regarding purity

Q: I was going through a bad situation where I was having trouble controlling my bladder and with waswasas, this resulted in me urinating myself a bit and also rushing to the toilet resulting in urine getting on my body and on my clothes and on the floor and also sometimes sitting on napaak toilet seats and this resulted in a lot of waswasas, but now I have got medical help things are better but when I was going through the bad situation I either knowingly or unknowingly made things napaak without thinking. I would have touched doors or walls without thinking and also the clothes that I was wearing which were napaak will have touched things whilst I was walking or I may have sat on things or the floor whilst I was napaak or walked whilst my feet were napaak. The thing is I can't really remember what is napaak and what isn't or where did I sit or what did I touch and those things that I do remember I'm not really sure what to do about it and some of it is in public places like the musjid, I always tried my best thinking things over and over again and I have a lot of doubts about what I made napaak so what shall I do?

A: Do not pay attention to these doubts.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
