  1. I can see that but Crack is pretty damn serious. Also I feelt really really strange on the way home. But I do know that I never will know. Shame I didn't call the police instead I worried about it
  2. Just when I had started cycling home for the day, I decided to take another road, it always seems to happen when I do something in a different way than usually.. Well I went in to a tunnel, and in the end of the tunnel I saw two drugusers and one of them sat at the ground smoking in a crackpipe, you saw smoke so this is not a false alarm... I got anxious pretty much instantenous. It was 1 hour ago and I have been googling my whole way home, there is one good study (on passive cracksmoking/exposure) but as usually you never know about the amounts... I think I got affected because I feelt tingling, dizziness and still feeling lightheaded. Also had a hard time focusing when I went home. What if I get tested in the close future and I test positive? This is really not my main worry but it should be I guess, because it's a real worry. Never thought about calling the police because I got caught worrying but I should have called...
  3. That is just black and white thinking. If it was true nobody would overcome OCD... It would mean that if you once overcome it there would be no risk of it getting back in.
  4. Great for her being able not letting it control her. And there are always something which can be learned from anything. Who even knows folks. What if the psychiatryxommunity removes OCD as an diagnosis, will you then stop trying to get better? Please don't. Because all of those diagnosis are not even clearcut, look at autism how it have changed in the latest years. Problem with people with OCD is the need of certainty and stability.
  5. I dont know. Today I was out and I saw a firecrew and then I saw them putting pellets on the ground. First thought thatvit could be food but then I searched the public alarms and it said "dangerous substance on road - fuel". I was about 30nmeters away but it wa sblowing in my direction... They firemen didn't wear masks but yea.
  6. I already left. Yes it is very disgusting, and pretty sure it is intentional.
  7. There is a library which I sometimes visit. This spring when I was there some day did I discover snot on the desk. I analyzed it but I come to the conclusion that it could have been my own. However this very day did I discover it again on another desk so now am I certain that it is intentional. It was in the middle and all. Pretty diagusting, unfortunely did I discover it after I had laid my bag there but nothing else got contaminated. Pretty disgusting isn't it?
  8. There are a lot of what ifs in your text. You need to stop analyze the situation and please do not go after "answers" to this situation you are in. Instead, shift your focus to something else.
  9. Yes yes I do agree. I have had some more thoughts lately and I have to do my thing. Also throwing in some overall mindfulness or no, throwing in meditation. Because I prefer to shift the focus because that is where I find the solution to this problem we all have. Actually started today again with the meditation and it was great.
  10. The other thing. That I delayed her getting help, even if it was with 1 second. But the thing isvthat he honked when he was beside me. So not like he honked behind me and then I moved. I feelt like I had caused her death or atleast contributed to it. It is vetter now but got really scared.
  11. Hello. I was cycling past the hospital today and the emergency is on that side of the hospital so there is a way up to the emergency. I didnt really cycle on the wrong side. So a car is passing me and he is using the horn when he is passing or after. I did look back and they were caring out a lady from the backseat. Obviously or well maybe not a psychopath would, but instantly I got anxiety. Sooo now do I feel guilty of causing something. Worst case is death. I am thinking about going to the emergency and ask. But that would be a compulsion I guess. I am normally very careful when I am using that road because I know it is the way up to the emergency but I didn't do it this time.🥶 edit: it was not like the car was honking when he was behind me and I had to move. But even 1 second are important in those situations...
  12. I have to agree with Handy. Do not involve in the patient's ways to get reassurance and that could be anything. When I was in group I saw a women who gave advices about which selfhelp-books were the best... which book had the right solution. At least the therapist should be out of touch for OCD's manipulative ways. Not accepting that an OCD-sufferer will twist everything to get reassurance is not a good start.
  13. Being anxious is great for the sufferer and the only way out. It all comes down to you stopping to avoid anxiety and embrace it.
  14. I would keep working on awareness so the OCD keept being in check. In your case I don't think this wishful thinking is of any use, you don't need to wish btw, you just start working for it right away.
