@helpfulgal I totally get you. I struggle with the same thing. Just to add something else that helped me, my therapist worked with me on identifying what is most likely to happen, and what’s the worst that can happen so when I made a list of what is most likely to happen, it totally didn’t relate to what was the worst that can happen. Just som…Read More

Hi. I’m wondering if anyone experiences this or has any ideas or tips on this. I get anxious very easily by what goes on at home. Every thing that happens that has to do with my siblings/ parents or I hear about, I get stressed out or nervous and anxious about it. For example, when a family member is having a procedure, I get very nervous about i…Read More
Yes definitely doesn’t always work for me.

For me, when I have the thought that I need to do that thing, instantly my brain connects something that seems so not connected into something…Read More

OCD is not what many people think it is- wanting to have a clean…Read More

Hi. I have ocd and it’s very difficult. No, I’m not talking about fake ocd that people use as an adjective. Real ocd with intrusive and horrible thoughts. It’s actual torture. People who have ocd know what I’m talking about. Can anyone give some encouragement? I do have a therapist but I also want to know if anyone here who has ocd can share w…Read More
