  • Does anybody else have a random but specific and persistent feeling that something will happen in a determined moment or circumstance of their lifes?For some reason, for the las couple of years I have been suspicious that I will die at age of 27... I don't know why... I just "know".It's hard because I'm already in college... I keep studying a career but sometimes I feel like giving it up because...

    Prozac

    So, I saw my doctor on Wed and we discussed my OCD and how the current dosage I'm on isn't helping me much, I'm on 40mg and have now been put up to 60mg, I've heard good things about 60mg, but I'm still nervous because 40mg hasn't stopped any OCD thoughts but it did help with sucidal thoughts etc for a while, but they're back too. I know Prozac can cause suicidal thinking but I think I'll be able...

    Anyone else with repetetive suicidal thoughts?

    I am new to this group, but have been on DS for a few years now. I have had repetitive suicidal thoughts for several years now, I don't consider them as real. These thoughts are way off from the way I really think. I have personal beliefs that prevent me from ever killing myself! I have been disabled for coming up on 8 years now. I have a rare intestinal birth defect; Intestinal Malrotation...

    My hair

    I have pretty thick, curly hair which I like even only once I've made it go the way I want but I struggle every morning with my hair to the point waking up is an issue because I don't want to accept the reality of how messy and big my hair gets. It makes me cry and want to shave my head when I look in the mirror. I used to have an actual addiction to cutting my hair. It's more than just hair I...

    A War in my head

    1
    I am 46 years old and have been diagnosed with OCD and Tourette's Syndrome. My Tourette's onset was at age 7. I did not start treatment for it until I was 20. I am a master at disguising and suppressing tics in public. I supress, but I have to vent them when I am alone, if you were to walk into my house when nobody but me is there and listen for a few minutes, you would think Satan lives there!...

    Hi. I'm Kylie and I'm 13 years old. I struggle with OCD, anxiety and depression, and it takes over my life. I was bullied in elementary school and had some fights with friends at school. Once the summer came around, they all kind of left. I had no one to talk to but my parents, and at first I was scared to do so. I felt lonely and had way too much time to think. I ended up spending a year and a...
