    Hi Ana I am with you on this 1. I don't have OCD but I have borderline personality disorder. It consumes me every day. My bad thoughts torture non stop. I feel like I need a break from all the stressors in this life. I am unable to work and succeed in the things I once loved. I have no status in society anymore. I am a shell of a person because of my mental health issues. You are not alone

    I feel your pain. I let my thought out rule my body it's horrible. I always have fear of health and what if's. I hope you are seeing a doctor because I know for myself I couldn't continue on my own. There is days where I just lay in bed and cry and worry. Next day I tell myself wow see your still here. All that pain and worry for what. Then hour later it's Pete and repeat feelng. I just keep telling myself God's got this.wishing u some wellness and peace

    Hi Ana. I really feel for you. We have to keep remembering that they are not real. We can control them. I know its easier said than done. I dont have full OCD, just a mild form. Theres so much stresses of life to get through on a daily basis

      To be honest I dont know. Right now I am sitting here at the laptop feeling so confused. I go from feeling really good to feeling panicked. I try to keep remembering what my councellor tells me, that its mind over matter. My fears are irrational. I try to breathe deeply like she has told me, to think positive thoughts. She has got me writing in a diary 10 minutes a day that helps. Have you been seeing yours for long?

      Not for long but doesn't seem to know a lot about OCD I been doing explosure and respond prevention is exposing my self to the thought food or anything that cause me fears and and letting the anxiety go away Without doing compulsive behavior or rituals I feel better but sometimes I confused also i used to have panicks attacks no any more because I stop all negative thinking and think positive and distract my mind when I feel panic also I try to stay positive because if i don't I will get depressed and depression bring more anxiety more feel better but OCD still here a little bit been doing this for 7 weeks my self

      You sound like you are doing really well. Its our thoughts and our minds that are making us feel like we are not doing as well as we really are. I do routine everything ... and I really am trying my hardest to change. My DH working shiftwork has put my routine out of wack and made me panic even more. 

      You say you distract your mind. In what ways?

      My councellor has recommended to get some calming cd's. Must pick some up .. I know I'm not helping you right now but it helps to talk to someone. Life can be so stressful with all the running about that ita easy to see how easy it can be to leave our minds take over. 

      I cant speak fully on OCD but you sound like an extremely strong person who is getting there

      Yea in 2012 when it came back I tried really hard to overcome and keep going on on my life but my family didn't support me they said I was crazy and they made everything worse so I think I went down in protective behavior cycle and my OCD just got worse plus depression i didn't know how to cope but. Now I decided to overcome this because I did it before and I didn't need support from family now I don't need support from family either
