  1. It gets everone i think Lucy, especially me. love that song.
  2. I know its a strange choice but i find that Linkin Park's "Crawling" reminds me of OCD. [Chorus:] Crawling in my skin These wounds they will not heal Fear is how I fall Confusing what is real There's something inside me that pulls beneath the surface Consuming/confusing This lack of self-control I fear is never ending Controlling/I can't seem [bridge:] To find myself again My walls are closing in (without a sense of confidence and I'm convinced that there's just too much pressure to take) I've felt this way before So insecure [Chorus] Discomfort,endlessly has pulled itself upon me Distracting/reacting Against my will I stand beside my own reflection It's haunting how I can't seem...
  3. thanks legend and scooby for a quick reply, sorry legend i completely forgot to search for it, lesson learnt hehe, i'll do that next time. i'm glad i'm not the only one, i've found that when i feel an OCD headache i drink water which after a few mins helps to relieve it abit, scooby what you might be talking bout is similar to many foods which contain MSG which can be a really big chemical trigger for OCD (i've found after a chinese meal the next day or even a few hrs my OCD has spiked), research is still being carried out the last i heard.
  4. Hi everybody its been awhile since my last post and i've been meanin to create this post but had so much on my plate recently, redundancy, suffering with depression and my OCD going a million miles an hour, which brings me to the title of this topic, i was wondering if anyone gets what i'm now callin 'OCD Headaches' as in when your OCD is really bad and your trying to concentrate on something else but you know somewhere in your head your OCD is trying really hard to battle you that it creates a headache just behind the front section of your brain (which is where the possible place is where OCD 'lives'), Dr Jeffrey Schwartz M.D in his book Brain Lock (brilliant book) says that our (OCD sufferers) brains overheat, which i heard is also a cause of headaches, too much brain activity. I'm hoping i'm not the only one who has this as it could potentially make me look alittle wierd hehe :blushing:
  5. hi ya srichie, your not alone at all as you can tyell from the many replies, i have exactly the same, its called Pure 'O' its very true it can be very upsetting and head doing (no pun intended :clapping: ) but its just something that i've had to try to get used too. i find i repeat a lot of things in my head, also i have magical thinking, if i think something my OCD makes me feel it can happen. your not alone lovey so dont worry their is more of us then ya think.
  6. Hi SWO, I have the same problem, its like another feeling that something is wrong that makes you feel down and just disconnected to the world, i try to just ride it out as best i can, because i'm a laughy type person i try to watch something that makes me laugh that tends to help me re-connect me to the world again, 9 times out of 10 it works Don't worry it will get better, i find that when i'm feeling like that i try to remember that i will go up i must because when i'm so far down the only way i can go is up and even after a few hours, days even weeks i find i do get better. :bounce8: Hope you start feeling better soon :original:
  7. I've seen a strange film (i found it strange but some people might understand it better) its called Zemanovaload, its mainly bout a writer with OCD who becomes obsessed with a model and trys to get her in a film he's writing the script for. Its abit strange with a nice little twist at the end but still worth a watch :a1_cheesygrin:
  8. Hi everyone, if theirs anyone out there that likes watchin the brilliant series that is Monk then i have just found out some very sad news, on the 8th April 2008 the brilliant actor that was Stanley Kamel (Dr. Charles Kroger) passed away from a heart attack in his Hollywood Hills home, he will be sadly missed by anyone who saw this great man in action on Monk my love goes out to his family.
  9. Thank you Ashley, i forgot to mention that in my post :lol:
  10. Hey everyone i just thought i'd say that for those that missed out on the Dirth Filthy Love DVDs that Ashley was selling in the OCD Shop a while ago (but were sold in record time :a1_cheesygrin: ) can now get it from play.com for £7.99: http://www.play.com/DVD/DVD/4-/3275124/Dir...ve/Product.html Also if anybody wants to read the interview from the guy who created it, Ian Puleston-Davies, they can read it here, its a great read: http://www.ocduk.org/9/dfl.htm
  11. Mel1971, you make a very good point and i have to fully agree with you that everyone on here are the most caring and loving people i've ever meet in my life, i'm really sorry to hear about your husband, my thoughts are with him, and your a very lucky person to have him and he's a very lucky person to have such a caring person as you. But the way i see it if you've never really had it (true real thought) will you ever miss it?? (hope that makes sense)
  12. "Ooo I just posted something along these lines on a different thread ( doubt ) I am glad that someone else feels the same ( I think) Not glad that you feel upset glad that I'm not the only one like this!" Readin your post Brainiac i now feel happy cause i thought i was the only one who feels the way i feel, its nice to know i'm not the only one :a1_cheesygrin:
  13. Hey ya sweetie, i kinda feel the same but i don't really go in circles, because i've be secretly dealin with OCD since i was a kid i have avoided most things in my life through just fear of it etc etc, the things i've avoided i do do but it takes me a very long time and with abit of pressure from my fiancee, and because of that i've settled in to my OCD filled life, and i just get on with it as best as i can, i'm in the mind set of "i dont wanna get better cause i've been living like this for about 15 years so why can't i live like this forever" i know it sounds very sad, but i just find it more comfortable to live like this, and i try to stay away from things i know will cause panic attacks. In response to CC: "If someone was to give us a magic pill and say "hey, take this pill and all this will go away. You will not obsess over intrusive thoughts. You will not engage in compulsive behaviour. You will not worry or be afraid anymore. You will live that carefree life that you have always craved". Would any one of us refuse that pill? I think not. " *sorry i dont know how to do the quote thingy hehe* This is just my view of what you said but if i was offered that pill, i would say no to it, purely on the fact that OCD is what makes me who i am and i feel if it was taken away i would be very different which is what i dont want, which sounds very strange through all the suffering i've been through :dry:
  14. I think i missed more then i thought hehe, i hope it gets repeated sometime soon :original: Thats ok Mel1971, i agree i think it will return to them but at least they have the tools to help them. As for my self i've now got to the point of just living with it and trying my best and just doin it, it doesn't upset me as much as it used to, apart from the 'harming others' thoughts and my neck tics sometimes stopping me from sleeping, oh and the fear of dieing in my sleep which makes me stay up till i'm completly exhausted, other then that i'm fine hehe :lol:
  15. Damn, i missed the first 38 mins i take it was bout the 2 boys etc and how there faimlies have been tryin to cope with it. I'll give it them tho, they are very very VERY lucky boys indeed for them to be diagnosed so early in life, (i didn't get that till last x-mas, i'm 23) they can now live there lives with relative freedom, but i feel that i've been going through this hell for so long its very hard to break out of it, and yes i've tried exposure therapy and it didn't really work, so i say good luck to them :a1_cheesygrin: :clapping:
