OCDt would totally be a trigger for me too. When us peeps with ROCD hear or read anything about breaking up or separating, it sends us into a tailspin, which to me means, they have or had their own set of relationship problems in the past themselves. But honeslty, I can't see where a relationship can cause OCD, rather the anxiety of ROCD is making a relationship problem. Jeez , did that make any sense at all?
No I’m pretty sure I got you. I’m in agreeance with you, I think past relationship trauma is somthing a lot of rocd peoples have in common. I’m slowly seeing more and more how the ocd is like a protector of some sorts, a really messed up protector, but because we are compulsing… we prove to it that it has somthing it needs to watch out for or protect.
@verog h, yeah, it was allotbif mishmash going on there on my observance. Lol. Sorry. I totally agree, bad relationship here too, cause a plethora issues with me, that have carried over into my marriage. It's taking me 38 years to start knocking the bricks down one by one. Our first 34 years of marriage as been most of a blur, even tho thru all that blurred life, I wanted to be with him.
I've had OCD since I was like 8-9, I doubt it's because I have an underlying social constructed issue. Everyone can have a say in what OCD is or not, doctors or not, u make it your own explanation in the end. If it's an explanation that provokes anxiety, maybe it's not the right answer.
Yes maybe maybe ahah, always need to keep saying maybe maybe not. Maybe the doctor is right maybe he is not. I too am the same, have had ocd for ever since I can remember.
@verog does anyone truly know the causes tho? like lowkey i wanna know why we fkd up like this?
@nothavingagoodtime Some people say genetics, I personally think trauma of some sorts causes it. But yeah it’s a bit unfair like we got to deal with this for the rest of our lives and we don’t even get straight answers on why we have this in the first place lmao, didn’t sign up for this crap.
I developed OCD at age 7 and I'm now 24. What was the underlying problem that existed at 7 that STILL exists at 24? I call bs
Honestly looking at it this way im thinking that for some people with multiple themes that have been suffering since child hood there is no present underlying cause, but for this doctor who has treated one theme oriented people finding this underlying problem has been helpful in peoples recovery, but idk. Not to be rude but most therpists or Drs that do not specialize in ocd sound stupid when they try to explain ocd.
Mine was actually caused by the antidepressant Wellbutrin.
How would that happen. I thought Wellbutrin helped with OCD? Idk ?
@jemcu812 Wellbutrin is mainly used to treat depression and I was prescribed it for my anxiety since my psychiatrist thought a dopamine receptor would be better for me. However, after two weeks of being on the medication I developed severe depression and OCD from it that now has yet to go away even after being off of it for almost a year now. If you do some research you will find many stories a lot like mine!
Ohhh I didn't know
