Anyone else have a hard time working/being alone with their thoughts?
I have a really hard time with it lately. Most of my OCD lately is somatic and centered around bodily sensations like not being able to swallow, ect.
And when I drive to college (45min away) I get anxious about having a breakdown up there or getting seriously ill or panicking and not being able to leave/drive myself home and being trapped, ect.
And even when I'm there and busy, lately I've been having my dad wait in the car (I have to have him follow me because ocd is bad while driving. What if I get sick and can't get home ect. Need to have him as backup in case I panic).
I know it's pathetic. When I'm busy I'm fine it's just all this what it that loves to make my commute miserable.
It's always there, to a lesser degree when I'm at home though because then I'm free to leave the situation, where at school I kind of can't and feel trapped. Anyone else relate?
