I have the same thing going on I don't take meds sometimes it's worse than other I have just leaned to find peacful place or sound .... To claim me down
i feel the same
It's works for me just so hard I have real bad anxiety all day long everyday they said it's where I didn't know how to control it for so long so it kept getting worse
i have similar anxiety where i feel like i've committed a bad crime. i know i haven't, but the thought tells me i have. it has stopped me from drinking with friends and having a good night's sleep because i'm scared
me too. it’s so hard because it’s about something just so scary, i’ve had intrusive thoughts about it in the past but highly doubt it became a reality and probably my mind messing with me but, idk. I hope I can find peace & relief soon,
Mine makes me scared I am going to hurt people I love I have come so far in this therapy though it's getting so much better I am just glad I found what going on now I don't feel like I am losing it all the time
I feel the exact same way. Every day is a struggle trying to determine if it’s a false memory or not. I feel like my mind suppressed it and I’m just thinking about it now because something triggered it. Then half of my brain says, if I did do something terrible, wouldn’t I have felt bad when I actually did it and not so many years later? I hate that we have to deal with this. It’s awful, debilitating and tortuous. I’m so sorry. You’re not alone. I feel the exact same way you do.
Yes!! it’s making me think I did all these things years ago, and it’s attacking last year and even this year! when I had intrusive thoughts it’s making me believe I did these things months ago, and it’s torture.. I cant even rest because I feel so much uncertainty and guilt about despicable things.
@ocdcycle Me too. It goes back to a specific place and tells me I have done something terrible and the images are awful. It’s such torture and it’s terrible that we have to deal with this. My mind is a prison. I cry all the time and pray that one day this would be over. I’m so sorry. I’m always here for you. I’m glad we have each other to help get through these tough times. Hopefully one day, we will have peace of mind. ♥️
@iwantpeace absolutely.. it gets to the most vulnerable places and makes me think I am a monster.. the doubt is very strong, I cry and panic all the time because i’m scared I actually did it… hopefully everything is just all in my head…
@ocdcycle Yes exactly, and I know I hope everything is just in my head as well. I couldn’t live with myself if it weren’t...
@iwantpeace me too.. it’s horrible because it feels so real but yet again could just be my anxiety messing with me.. I couldn’t live with myself if it were true too.. hopefully things will be alright ..
I would say to try your best to not analyze by placing your attention elsewhere as it can lead to emotional reasoning. It really begins with consistently practicing foundational steps whatever that looks like for you. Educating yourself, learning with a NOCD therapist, attending webinars, etc. I read an article yesterday by a Dr. Greenberg about rumination and it really covers how even asking things like this are typically forms of rumination and analyzing. So instead how about you sit with the doubt, discomfort, anxiety, and get back to whatever it is you were doing before. Were you reading, eating, exercising?… good, go and do something for yourself, not to avoid thoughts…but to focus on what actually matters to you.
Mine was so much worse I couldn't stay at work and felt like I couldn't drive I had to do an sos to finily claim down
Thank God I found this program it help but opening up all the fear has really been hard on me
