    I'm falling apart

    1
    Hi, I'm a mom of a 4 year old. I'm pretty sure I have severe OCD and various other mental issues. I've had manageable anxiety since college but I'm totally consumed by it now. This extreme version began around when my son turned. I became aware that the flu kills 100+ healthy children each year and the shot does not necessarily protect abainst it. I became convinced that my son would be a...

    I cannot function

    2
    OCD is ruling my life. No treatment has worked long term for me, I’ve even been in an intensive program but they referred me elsewhere. I can’t function normally. I can’t find any new treatment resources. I feel like I’m fading away into OCD, like it’s consuming me. I spend so much time doing compulsions or obsessing and I’m just so tired and beginning to feel helpless against this...

    Is this the right choice?

    My mind is constantly running trying to make me think I'm not making the right decisions in life. That every choice I make will be wrong. I feel like I'm being constantly torn in half.

    Overthinking life

    1
    I've hit a point where I overthink everything in my life. I started to get in the process of living things day-by-day not thinking ahead and not trying to plan things I don't need to play it yet. At the same time I sit here and I overthink the smallest things last night my cat came and cuddled with me and I started over think if I'd ever want more cats. Aggravates me because I know I don't need...

    OCD Spiking

    8
    I was in here a couple weeks ago about OCD spiking because I wasn't able to go back to the doctor and afford my medicine. I have an appointment for Thursday to meet with a doctor but until then my OCD has just gotten worse, to the point where I can't eat without throwing up or just even relax or sleep really. So, while I wait to go to the doctor, I've been practicing the "agree with your OCD"...

    PMS and OCD

    I'm new to this site so don't know if anyone has posted this before: Has any other female member noticed that their OCD is worse when they have pms? I can't help but wonder if that indicates that hormones may play a role, for girls and women at least. I also notice that my OCD can sometimes seem worse in the winter months. I also struggle with Seasonal Affective Disorder. Perhaps the symptons of...

    WHY the hell did I get scoliosis!!????????????

    1
    I knew that it was my fault that I got this shitty scoliosis. Its 25° S curve we discovered it at 19 years. Now im 20 and my weight is good. But from 16 to 19 years I was only weighing 55 kg because of mental illness. Its very likely I got it because of that! It was probably a lack of calcium or some minerals and my severe underweight. (Im male) 55 kg at 16 to 19 years as a boy is too low. Of...
