    Struggling to see why I'm here

    We all go through dark thoughts and times. Bear with you will feel better. We all have a purpose it may just not be clear.

    I haven’t been able to get on with mindfulness. It’s worth a try.
  3. I don’t trust humans at all. It’s been an issue and effected every area of my life, especially relationships. I runminate over conversations and look deep into things that have been said.

    My OCD Story

    I’m glad you have made good progress. We all have are ups and downs and you have to drag yourself back on the straight and narrow.

    How do you know if it's OCD?

    It’s only natural to be anxious about a child having surgery or anyone else you love. This level is your ocd though. You need to team up with your family and support each other through it.

    Need some inspiration

    Everything in life involves a risk of some sort. To live life you must take risks. Sometimes things will work out and sometimes they won’t.

    I would suggest linked. Have you had any ptsd treatment?

    The News: Avoidance / Exposure

    You should watch the news / expose yourself to it. But you need to stop the compulsions. It will take time. Some days will be better than others

    Please help

    Calm yourself and start working through the techniques you have been taught. Discuss this with your therapist when you see them.

    Worried about my past

    I believe all of us have had embarrassing moments like that in our life. Stop ruminating and move on.

    Health obsessions

    Be proud of what you have achieved. You’ve gone abroad to a country that has these issues for work and spent an extended period of time there. There are risks with everything we do in life. You have taken the necessary precautions. Imagine the memories and stories you will be able to share on your return home.
  12. You need to change your evening routine that keeps you structured and getting into bed. It will be hard but it’s the only way.

    Other people

    Mental health in all forms is difficult for people who not experienced it to understand. Its their lack of knowledge and ignorance. Sometimes also it maybe that they are frustrated or upset that they see you struggling.

    Back again :-(

    It sounds like ocd to me. Meds would be a good place to start and atleast you are going to receive some counselling. I see a therapist privately - if this is an option for you it might be worth a try. Maybe try a support group to talk to some people with similar issues that maybe able to provide some support.
  15. You’ve been going through a lot of change and stress which can increase your ocd symptoms which it has. Different people view sex in different ways I’m like you i attach it to feelings but yet I have a female friend who doesn’t see it like that. And I have a male friend who dies attach it to feelings! Your boyfriend said he didn’t want to make you do anything you didn’t want to or risk your relationship. now forget about it and move on. Enjoy your future together
