I used to feel this way but I’ve befriended my demons. We’re besties 👯♀️
Totally feel you. So hard to be present and actually participate in life. Thing is, that is what the condition is all about - you CAN get better. It just makes us feel so helpless
What has helped you guys most in your journey?
I’m honestly just starting my journey. All started about a month ago, and I’m kinda trying to wrap my head around it all. For now, I’m just trying to really tell myself that the thoughts are the OCD, not me. they don’t mean anything, it’s just that I fear them and that’s what makes them come back. I’m still feeling pretty distressed most of the day, but trying to remind myself that it’s only thoughts. I booked a therapy appointement for next week to guide me into how to manage this chaos. Totally empathize with how you’re feeling. You’re not alone ❤️🩹
@ldc1 I feel for you. Mine started a few months ago. Super strange and distressing for something like this to spring on someone. I’m trying to commit to erp and I’m seeing a psychiatrist soon so I hope it helps. Best of luck to you and if you want to talk ever I’m here
@morgorreee Totally agree - it’s absolutely terrible! But there is a way out. You’re doing the best you can x Same here!
