OCD is sort of like a chameleon I think. It can fit itself into any situation. That being said, disinterest can be a sign of depression, which often results from OCD after awhile.
I think I'm not depressed Well before OCD hit me. I was sad cause my online friend ghosted me. Just like I think of a good thing. My OCD thoughts are like it's no fun and what's the point of that 🤷🏻
@Michaelggg I'm sorry to hear about that. It's always a little (or very) hurtful when plans made with friends don't work out, especially with no communication from them. Depression or OCD, or even simple emotional exhaustion, it makes sense to be a little disinterested.
@Anonemuse Okay I get it. Thanks for explaining 👍🏻
Same issue with me- once my OCD spiked, it was coupled with depression and anxiety. I suspect in our case, OCD is the root cause of our depression. After all, you don’t really feel like yourself. I’m just practicing riding the waves. Sorry you’re experiencing this too.
Actually I don't really know if I'm depressed but I have anxieties. One day just for a mental compulsion I was telling that what's the point of hurting people as I have harm OCD and I tried to remember a good thing it suddenly turned into what's the point of doing that good thing either. Like my mind constantly kept on telling it's boring that's no fun etc. For eg. I like playing football but my mind says me what's the point of playing that's no fun.
@Michaelggg Oh I see- If it’s just anxiety then, doing ERP to re-wire that brain will hopefully bring about your old feelings of interest towards those activities
@Atlas_21 Oh okay thanks 👍🏻
