I had a TBI in 2010 at 13. Iv started eating eaver day at lunch to feel right despite the fact i lost my swallow and other functionsin my injury. This ritual almost always makes me feel good but almost always make me feel bad after. i’ve been struggling for years with this
trying to figure out whether it’s OCD or PTSD or just coping. But now that I feel all these negative feelings I’m hedging my bets on OCD.
i’ve had OCD therapy about different stuff but this can never be touched somehow. I know I should try to resist this compulsion but resisting it brings me extreme pain emotionally and it’s extremely draining, it even makes me want to hurt myself. i’m thinking I need to go back to my OCD therapist but it’s such a unique situation. And I’m uniquely extremely stuck. this is my only issue but it seems like the biggest one it hurts others around me. I dont want to be hear living like this. i’ve stopped doing what I love, i’ve become so small and secluded and intreverted. it also doesn’t help that my parents don’t understand. Instead of ther confusion I feel hatred in there exhaust to deal with me and it hurts!
