Yes from my gf
Yeah I have ROCD and I want to from my fiancé
@AnonymousA Same! And I also isolate from my fiancé. My wedding is in 2 months. It is so hard.
Yes definitely, it feels very isolating
Yes and I want quiet to “think through” my thoughts but it just makes it worse.& I don’t want to be around anyone because I’m scared I’ll get an intrusive thought about it
Yeah and that leads to major depressive episodes.
All the time. But I push through it and make sure that I visit people even if I find it hard to text them
Yes. Sometimes it it makes me want to isolate. Other times, it makes me want to be around people. Just depends on what type of intrusive thought I have.
I basically isolated for about 3 years. I didn't even know it was ocd, please don't isolate, it'll make things worse hun
It’s so hard not to isolate though. Ocd feels so scary that it’s hard being around people because you’re scared they’ll trigger an ocd spike and you’ll have to deal with it
@Earlymockingjay That's exactly why I avoided literally everyone, trust me...it makes things so much worse because its strengthening the ocd. Its letting it know that you're afraid, and that will only cause you to isolate more. Don't let the ocd win, i wish I would've had someone tell me that
