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

  1. It's about organization, perfection. One can have OCD & OCPD
  2. I'm just speculating but stress brings out her avoidant side of Avoidant Attachment
  3. In USA, families can join in sessions. They even have a TV program called Obsessed that involves family. A lot of forum members can give a good perspective on your situation. Putting someone in a new environment & watching if their OCD gets better is a way to determine the environmental effect on OCD. Is it the family or is it the child?
  4. This is for doctors to answer. Forum is for OCD angle & you stated you don’t wish to discuss that. You also didn’t state why you need to do this type of rectal cleaning.
  5. You got plenty of good advice before several times. You need to apply it.
  6. Individuals previously diagnosed with obsessive-compulsive disorder and those whose parents have been diagnosed with the condition may be more likely to develop schizophrenia. This is according to a new study published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry. There are two things, schizophrenia & OCD with a schizophrenic theme.
  7. Maybe OCD is only a coping mechanism for some other comorbidity? Yes, it’s an OCD forum & OCD produces rigid thinking so no new answers. Are you avoiding doing things? Avoidant Personality Disorder? Most people with it have OCD as a coping mechanism. Psychologists don’t do personality disorders, only ones that specialize in this field do. Once you find the source you’ll get the right treatment that works.
  8. Success is not a linear progression, sometimes it's one step back, 2 steps forward.
  9. How are your eating habits? Did you get a blood panel? Are you in medication? Intrusive thoughts are thoughts you don't put there yourself. Unwanted thoughts are thoughts you don't want
  10. It's good they came to the car with you. Proper treatment is hands-on, not just sitting in a chair chatting. Obsessed is a TV program about this kind of CBT.
  11. Easiest thing for backs is to lay in your bed & put a pillow where your knees are & put your knees on that. I can sleep that way when necessary. Takes pressure off the back.
  12. Perfection is OCPD, its not related to OCD. An OCD person can have both or comorbidities. A proper diagnosis would get appropriate treatment that works.
  13. I didn't say she was bitten but it's possible to get rabies from an open sore being licked. We're not doctors. Only a doctor can give a rabies vaccine & they would have to see a doctor first & if course, the doctor is going to ask why they need it & explain it's very painful. snowbear seems to be discouraging this person from seeing a doctor & getting a doctor's decision by just calling it OCD. If it were a cold virus I'd see your point but this is rabies it's like 100% fatal.
  14. Oh, you don't know much about the brain. It's our logic brain but it has many functions. The neocortex, also called the neopallium, isocortex, or the six-layered cortex, is a set of layers of the mammalian cerebral cortex involved in higher-order brain functions such as sensory perception, cognition, generation of motor commands, spatial reasoning and language. Our amygdala reaction time is 15ms & neocortex is 25ms. This says our fear center is first to react but by delaying the response we give our neocortex or logic center, a chance to react instead. Pretty simple. Children don't learn consequences until age 6 & are better at it by age 14. Our brain functions vary by age. Can't apply one model to everyone regardless of age. Its illogical.
  15. There is so much need to ask for reassurance from your partner. But reassurance just verifies your thoughts.
