      I know that feeling, migraines are hell and you can’t take an anti nausea tablet because you can’t keep it down and that goes for pain meds as well. Fresh air helps a lot for migraines, just sitting by the window can help. I don’t know if you are the same but mine is affected by pressure on the spine and sitting and or laying down makes it worse. Ice packs on the head help.

  2. Thank you Ocd10 it did feel good achieving it ? Well done malina, keep going ?
  3. It's great to see everyone sharing what positive things we have done today? Well done everyone! Today I have made a large craft bag, something I have never made before and I'm really pleased with it, I had a lot of thoughts and this was hard for me, but yeah I did it
  4. Well done Lollipop! By replacing some negatives with positives it can help lift our moods? we can easily slip into everything being a negative when quite often they aren’t ?
  5. Well done Roy! These are very positive reminders of what you’ve achieved?
  6. Well done Dualdiagnosissoldier! We can always find a positive even on a bad day, but quite often we just can’t see it so it’s good to look and remind ourselves of the positives we have achieved and celebrate ? To help lift our moods we need to see the positives we have achieved no matter how small? I think it’s good to find at least half an hour a day me time doing something you enjoy whether it be reading a book, relaxing etc ? Hope it’s been a good day.
  7. It’s quite easy to allow ourselves to slip into seeing everything as a negative, the more we feel this way the lower our mood becomes and so the cycle begins. We can all find a positive in everything we do on a daily basis, however it can quite often go overlooked and unnoticed because of our low mood and how we are feeling. Let’s try and share the positive things we have done today regardless of OCD and what we have achieved ? Today i have walked around a garden centre alone and also made myself a drink something i’ve avoided for some time now ?
  8. It's a difficult time for me at the moment, everything is up in the air. So many things to worry about and more just keep coming, life can be so unfair at times and it's hard :(

      Thank you Roy as always for your much appreciated advice, your always there no matter what hardships you face yourself and that in itself is phenomenal, not sure that's the right word but you know my grammar lol. I would PM you becauce I've always regarded you to be a trusted friend but I think you have enough going on right now without any added extras. Thank you as always lost x

  9. It's really not important Paul whether you fantasized about her or not. Leave it be and just enjoy what you've got now. It was a fantasy and nothing more, leave it in the past and enjoy moving forward
  10. Even though this is a contamination issue it's a little different from your normal contamination issues because it's more a mental contamination. With contamination issues we can wipe away germs from a feared object which reduces anxiety and leaves us feeling safe to continue, this is where our compulsions come into play. It's a little different with a mental contamination because you can't do this because all the washing in the world won't change anything, you have to change your thinking process towards the mental contamination and that's a little different to do. I'm not sure if this is making any sense because it's difficult to explain or if you will even agree, but I've been through a similar situation myself and even though we still have compulsions we have to do regarding it eg avoidance we have to deal with the core issue a little differently. Yours being the feeling of feeling dirty and seedy inside in some way. We usually work CBT from the outside in but in these cases it needs to be done from the inside out if that makes sense. I won't continue to elaborate more Ashley unless you wish me to continue and understand what I am trying to say and then I can possibly help you change the way you are thinking?
  11. Phew just arrived home from holiday and feeling pretty exhausted, could do with another one to get over this one :lol:
