  • “And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in.”
    Haruki Murakami (born 1949);

  • “The only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work, and the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking, and don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking, don't settle.”
    Steve Jobs (1955-2011)

  • “When you begin to touch your heart or let your heart be touched, you begin to discover that it's bottomless, that it doesn't have any resolution, that this heart is huge, vast, and limitless. You begin to discover how much warmth and gentleness is there, as well as how much space.”
    Pema Chodron (born 1936);

    rhaimon For me i think since i use to work at starbucks and quit coffee for a bit after i left i find it doesnt. Though oddly enough throughoutthe time i hadnquit coffee ifound my anxiety was not lessend at all. The OCD thought where just as bad as when i drank coffee. Slept better but to combat that i dont drink coffee after 3pm on days where i have to sleep for work316 days ago

  • I experience something like OCD images.I don't know those things are images or strange intrusive thoughts.I see shark men and a two faced FBI officer they move breath and I get the felling as if I am in their realm.They are so life like and I imitate their speech and their actions to some extent.

    Downtown Julie! I had the most strangest dream ever when a large, long dolphin swallowed a large, long snake and then, afterwards the dolphin smiled at me and swam away happily.307 days ago
  • Does anybody on here suffer also with OCD's cousin BDD? This is what cripples me and keeps me housebound and afraid of others. I do have OCD but its not as severe as the BDD with me and i'm starting to feel pretty alone on here with this. x

  • I feel sometimes that I try to combat OCD, but I often fail so many times. It just a constant state of feeling your in danger, even though your not. I've just been struggling so much recently. From my fear of getting HIV from a gym door, to feeling guilty about something that happened 28 years ago. I actually went on face book and apologized to the person. I'm sure they probably think I'm nuts.

  • I have scruplulosity type OCD where I worry a lot about how I treat others, did I lie, did I hurt the environment, getting stuff for free, etc. MY therapist has me do the opposite to expose my self to my anxieties, such as practice being wrong and resisist urge to correct, don't leave situation to figure stuff out, don't do anything to get rid of anxiety, don't figure anything out, etc.

  • I just wanted to ask and add what are your opinions are on this?

  • Today I felt extreme guilt over something that happened 29 years ago. The guilt stems from not telling someone how much I cared about him. I have been feeling this way since I started taking Neurotin. I also take Zoloft, and I think possibly the drugs interacting are making me depressed and obsessed about this. Because this didn't happen until I took the two together.

  • Has anyone tried anafranil aka clomipramine? What dose? Did it help? I'm trying it now. I really need it to work. I am so down right now. i get really depressed and panicky all the time because this anxiety is ruining my life and I'm scared it will never go away.

  • I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Kimberley. I have OCD since I was 12. I take Zoloft which seems to help the anxiety, but still certain things bother me. Touching public bathroom doors, and the possibility of getting HIV and hepatitis scares me horribly. I also have trouble having confidence in myself. I would love to hear people experiences with OCD, and how you dealing with it.

    donokl Thank you for all of your responses. I know people that don't have OCD, don't realize how much it can control your life sometimes. Missy you saying the word "over think", really hits home with me. I'm going to try to combat this monster I have in my head, I try to face my fears even though that's sometimes extremely difficult.764 days ago
  • I'm wondering if anyone else can relate to this. I am scared to just relax and be me. I am uncertain of what I will do. It's kinda like I dont trust myself. I'm scared that if I don't restrainmyself by monitoring then I might do/say something stupid or dangerous or forget something or blurt out a secret, etc. I see tons of uncertainty where others don't. I don't know how to get over this.

    Bob i have similar thoughts. My psych tell me it comes down to confidence and trust in my own abilities. I doubt myself where i should trust myself. It is a difficult situation, i have made so many wrong turns in life that i sometimes don't trust myself to do what is good for me. I would like to give you a positive answer on how to deal with this, however i am still working on this one myself. I guess you can try breaking down your thinking into small manageable pieces and filter out the negative and focus on the positive, this may help.828 days ago
