    The reassurance police would like to reassure us that refusing reassurance is reassuring us that we are going to get better. (smile).

  1. Not true again. Scientists tested surfaces around the bathroom & found they have bacteria from feces on them. That science is called Toilet Plumes. When a toilet is flushed a plume of whatever was in it lands on nearby surfaces. Look it up before you post things.
  2. One rarely has just OCD, it’s often comorbid with other stuff. I met my wife on an OCD forum. We assisted each other.
  3. Take a look at some users posting for reassurance compulsively. Years of the same topic.
  4. You should be given a workbook with things to do between appointments.
  5. You should make one master topic & update it so we know what advice you’ve been given.
  6. Never seek reassurance from yourself or others. Instead, tell yourself the worst will happen, is happening, or has already happened. Reassurance will cancel out the effects of any therapy homework you use it on and prevent you from improving. Reassurance-seeking is a compulsion, no matter how you may try to justify it.
  7. Alcohol causes your serotonin to decrease, so you obsess more. This is called Alcohol Anxiety. This is why those with OCD need to avoid it.
  8. That sounds like Avoident Personality Disorder. I suggest you research it too & see what you think. It’s comorbid with Ocd often. “Autism” comes from Self plus Ism. It originally described schizophrenia. I love words, it’s my theme.
  9. You should also research Avoident Personality Disorder. 56% of those with OCD have it. It’s not mentioned on the forum but it’s a great thing to research.
  10. He posts the same thing on other forums too. It’s tiring. This forum requires users keep one topic & update it so we can follow what advice they have been told already.
  11. How are you feeling about this now? I came to Central California as it’s too hot near LA.
  12. I see you have a fear of your own feces. Your feces were already in your body so it’s not as if they can harm you again. Therefore, you could let your anxiety dissolve & it will on it’s own if you let it. It could take hours, maybe days but it’ll let up eventually.
  13. That’s a lot of medication. Be sure to look at all of the side effects to see if they are caused by medication. If you have kids there is something I call Post Partum OCD.
  14. That’s wrong again, people can use their PM for anything they want. Crickey, last thing the forum needs is PM police.
