  1. Hi i often feel this way i have ocd and ms and depression but i have 2 girls to look after. I used to be asking questions on here a lot as a few probably know but i don`t really now as you do really have to do it yourself unfortunately there is not really any help for ocd i know other than helping yourself and you have to try and keep busy and tell yourself that it is not real just thoughts and it cannot hurt you in any way. I have wished lots over the years that was more help for ocd and other mental health issues but there is nothing it really in the end comes down to doing it yourself and having the stregnth to get better. I have bad days still but know if i don`t fight it noone else will do it for me, My family have never understood, Not sure how they can i don`t really know why i think this way either. I hope you can fight this but i know it bloody hard to do i don`t think anyone without ocd will ever know how hard it is but try and believe in yourself and try as hard as you can to get better co really noone wil do it for you in the end you have to fight this horrible illness yourself, All the best Joanne

  5. Very interesting and useful discussion I have found my anxiety does not fade if I do something that worries me for a long time or til something else happens then I forget the other worry and get anxiety about the new one. My husband said it is better to be anxious while getting over and trying to beat the worries than being anxious and bad with ocd and not trying but he does not understand how ill it makes you feel, Even though I think he is right lol.
  6. Thank you both x
  7. My doctor is referring me to springfield hospital in London and I just wondered if anyone knew if it was a facility you stay at or just go in for appointments thanks
  8. Daisy you deserve so much better than that. It may be complicated but what he has done is unforgivable and maybe if you move forward you will do better as it sounds like he is not much help to you either. Be strong you can do it let go and fight it I am willing you on we all are on here xx

  10. Thank you Alex Lauren and cub. I appreciate the replies but I am so worried the splashes when I went to the loo has dirtied me. I have not done anything about it and I have kept going whereas before I would of had a bath but I have not. The worry and anxiety is bad but I hope it will be worth it not giving in and that I won`t make anyone bad because I am dirty thanks again xxx
  11. Hi everyone hope your all doing well.
