SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME IM DROWING IN MY THOUGHTS

Posted , 7 users are following.

I have been diagnosed with anxiety and depression recently. Everyday is a struggle, some days worse than others and tonight I'm having a VERY VERY BAD ONE. I am nearly 100% sure I am suffering from OCD, as whenever the irrational doubts and intrusive thoughts pop into my head, which is virtually all day everyday for the past 3 weeks, I then start to have an anxiety attack which leads me to research things to reassure myself , this I believe is my compulsion! Please help me I can't live like this any longer it's making me ill, I feel crazy and worthless. I need comfort and reasurance

    The desire to check for reassuance is very common with anxiety, its not necessarily ocd. Its a very natural thing to do, but it's not wise. We all do it, or have done,  but its best avoided. Speaking to a gp and arranging some therapy will help you greatly I think

    Hi

    Use Google to look up celebrities, not as a symptom checker. I'm sure everyone here has done it, myself included, but rest assured that although we have checked to see what false deadly disease we have, we are still alive and kicking weeks, months or years after reading them.

    The best people to give you reassurance if you REALLY want it is your GP. But you are not alone here so don't lose your mind
