  • "Pure" OCD

OCD used to make me cry endlessly i never thought i would be happy until one day i stopped fighting with my thoughts and let them be there, don’t get me wrong they bother me but they don’t control my life anymore. the issue now though is that i feel completely numb. i’m either angry or just in the middle not happy not sad but also struggling to feel anything things that used to make me feel just don’t make me feel anything anymore. i don’t really know what to do because it beats the alternative right ? idk i just want to start living again

@abrad25 Maybe keeping busy all the time isn’t the healthiest coping mechanism? I definitely recommend talking to a counselor about that if it’s available to you
