  1. Thank you very much It helps me not to feel so bad about myself
  2. Hi :] I do understand how you feel. Many times I have had the opportunity to expose myself when I go outside but I don't do it. "You have to go ahead. Just keep going, don't think too much about what you're doing. Then one day you'll realize you've drastically changed." I know it's hard but I think this advice can help you.
  3. My therapist told me that I am disciplined so that must be why I am able to make good progress(?).
  4. Well yes, sometimes I repeat to myself that I have OCD for that reason (the medication thing and how that hasn't caused me anything bad). I'm putting into practice accepting everything as part of the OCD. Although my mind overanalyzes things. It's like "Am I getting better too fast?", "I'll let it go from now on but what if I'm really a monster?" or "I don't receive ERP so why I'm getting better?" I still feel a certain mistrust towards myself ugh I would like to rest from all this at least for a day.
  5. I know this is going to sound bad, but can someone answer? I want to know that people have read it. I am sorry.
  6. I take 100mg of sertraline in the morning and 75mg of clomipramine in the night. So if I don't have ocd the medication would not work and cause me a serotonin syndrome, right? So that means that I have ocd.
  7. Well, in these months of recovery there have been ups and downs. I have worked on some compulsions and activities that help increase my tolerance. I thought that stopping doing compulsions was going to be super difficult (I'm still working on two but it's weird). I've been working a bit on the groinal response, at night it's hard for me to sleep because I put myself in a position where I don't feel these sensations. But in these last few weeks I try not to do it, I don't know if I'm doing it right because sometimes I filled my head with good thoughts. Now I don't do it as much anymore, I don't feel the sensations so much anymore. I'm still afraid of being what my thoughts tell me and I know it's going to take me a long time to get over it. Although I am concerned about not taking ERP and still improving :/.
  8. I take sertraline and clomipramine so maybe that's it. Thanks for your help.
  9. I know it sounds repetitive, but can someone answer? I'm sorry
  10. Sorry if I'm not in the right place to say all this.
  11. I still don't understand how it is possible that I don't feel anxiety when I have OCD (before I had it but little by little it was decreasing, now I feel very little). I receive CBT without ERP. But if I received ERP, how would I calculate my discomfort? Also something that has been bothering me for a long time is that sometimes I have involuntary movements in my legs or back, somehow my mind relates it to my thoughts. I don't know if it's another symptom like the groin response. Sorry if this post doesn't make sense. There have been times that I wanted to share other things on the forum but didn't because I didn't want to write it because I didn't want to somehow "relive" what happened. And I didn't ruminate, maybe I did it back then when I didn't know what OCD was all about. I am concerned about this because if I don't ruminate that means I don't have OCD.
  12. Hi @snowbear I'm sorry for not making myself understood, it's probably because sometimes when I don't know how to translate something I use google translate. Yes, I had talked about it with my psychologist but yesterday my mom said something about it that made me uncomfortable. I'm sorry for bothering.
  13. I'm sorry for being like this but can anyone respond?
  14. My psychologist congratulated me for avoiding doing a compulsion, but told me that many patients do that many months later. Is it normal that I have lasted less? I receive CBT without ERP
