  1. I am really sorry your mother doesn't care VNDO. The good news is that you can find great support here on the forum. You can share with us your symptoms and we can teach you how to face them. You are a very smart girl, I am sure you are going to find a way to have an appointment eventually. In the meantime, there are very good selfhelp books you can read to learn good tools to deal with your OCD symptoms. I recommend the book: Brain Lock by Jeffrey M. Schwartz. Here is an Introductory Overview of the book Brain Lock, this way you can see what the book is about: I am sure other members can recommend other selfhelp books.
  2. It makes sense. You need to see a CBT therapist to help you to deal with your OCD symptoms VNDO. You are right asking your mother for an appointment. Why your mother doesn´t want to take you to see a specialist?
  3. Hello VNDO, Personally, I don't think there is a correlation between meds and period. My OCD gets substantially worse when I am on my period. You are not alone. According to what I know, Medication (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs)) helps you to decrease anxiety. And CBT helps you to deal with obsessions and compulsions.
  4. Be kind to yourself. Talk to yourself like you would to someone you love. :hug:

      Self-compassion is easily lost when in the grip of OCD. 

      But learning to apply it alongside CBT is beneficial and can help us to feel we can reconnect with others. 

      We are not to blame for having OCD. 

  5. Don’t listen to the OCD negativity; be your own best friend.

  6. I love ❤️ your reply malina. Thank you for sharing
  7. Hi Bigdave , Congrats! You are an inspiration. Keep going and thank you for sharing
  8. Be loyal to your future not your past

  9. Hi Hosscat , OCD is a big fat liar. Don't feel crazy for having these pop in. It is just your OCD making you feel bad about it. That is how OCD works. It is your OCD that is making you doubt about what you believe or not. Your OCD is creating all these pop in. Don't listen to your OCD.
  10. Don't fight your obsession. Get busy! 

  11. OCD is a big fat liar :yes:

  12. Hi Kirsty , Welcome to the forums I am sorry you are feeling scared about going to work tomorrow. One thing you should know is that you have to ignore your OCD fears to start having progress. So don't listen to your OCD. OCD is a big fat liar. Go work tomorrow, it doesn't matter what your OCD says about your equipment. Remember that OCD is a big fat liar.
  13. Everyday is an opportunity to make positive changes. :57439eb60db27_thumbup: Let´s start today!

  14. Life is beautiful when you learn to appreciate what you have ♥️

      A short drive out in the Autumn light this morning showed me how lovely this time of year can be.
