thank you. informative and interesting
I have OCD (although the type I have isn't mentioned in this video). I've had it for about 6 years and its very hard to deal with. I see a therapist but it doesnt seem to be working much.
I hate all these videos. If it's not the actual blog post, then it's one of the ads. They're loud and obtrusive. I can't always remember to turn off the sound before I open these pages. and why should I have to? Just let us know on the newsletter title page so we can avoid them. Is that really so hard?
thanks. It would seem to me it should be in the hands of neurologists, not psychiatrists. It doesn't seem like a typical anxiety disorder in any way.
To John B:
To be honest, I'm not sure I deal with it that well. There a great many times that I feel like I can't even leave the house, though I always force myself to if I need to work and/or go shopping. I just realized as a teen that I had 2 options. Let the OCD control me, or I could control the OCD. I don't want to live the rest of my life stuck inside an apartment, not even leaving for groceries, or to go on a date, because of obsessions and compulsions.
Because of that desicion, I deal with large amounts of anxiety every day, but I still live my life. I have a lot of things I want to do in my life and in order to do those thing, I have to be a functioning person, OCD or not. I need to be out in the world. It's as simple as that. So I have a hell of a lot more anxiety than may be healthy, and I have trouble talking to people or finding a job, but I'm out in the world, and that counts for soemthing.
One last thing to those who have OCD. Don't let others tell you that something shouldn't bother me. I still have family who think I should deal with it better, but others can't tell what you go through. Very few people in RL know about the trouble I have going shopping or working. They can't get why it would sometimes terrify me to go out. Or why, if I cook fresh vegetables, it takes me 3-6 hours to cut up enough for just me (and then they wonder why I prefer rice or spaghetti). So they see my compulsions as a weakness that I should be able to control better then I d
