hey ya

sorry your having a hard time.But think of your three children and how much you love them.One of my fears about OCD is whether or not i can have kids so at least you proved you can have them even with OCD.

As regards your marriage im sorry to hear about that but the best healer is time so just give yourself some time.

sorry things are difficult like this. Try to be good to yourself for a while, if you can. can you take a bit of time out? Do you have family who could take baby for a few hours so you could treat yourself to a walk or something?

There's nothing more healing than a good walk. perhaps your older daughter could go with you, or do something separate for herself.......

hang in there, everyone here is with you i'm sure.

Just keep agreeing with the thoughts if you can and then ask yourself what pleasant things you want to achieve that day - perhaps getting baby out in the pram to the park or something?

keep telling yourself you deserve some things to be good, the rest of the world believes it, but i think us with ocd often don't believe we deserve things to go well or to be happy.

and take deep breaths! alternate nostril breathing is supposed to help :grin: i read that on the back of a packet of herbal tea, you close off one nostril and breathe through the other then breathe out through same, then close off other side and breathe in through that side, breath out again and switch. I'm being lighthearted here mainly but i did try it and i did feel more relaxed....it's yoga i think.

take care.

sunshine and flowers! spring is coming! :) You are not alone, i'll be trying very hard, with a comitment, to enjoy the day too! No matter what the brain is barking on about!

bye

by the way, when i say 'agree with the thoughts' i don't mean that badly - apparently this is the therapy for ocd thoughts according to Stephen Phillipson......so don't want to distress you.....You agree with them the way you would agree with the threats of a child.....then move on.

I think i am right but perhaps others here will confirm whether i am right about this. :)

It sounds a tough time rainbow :)

Is the marriage over because it's over or due to the OCD related problems? Sorry to hear your daughter has OCD problems as well, that must be tough.

Keep talking and someone will have something to help.

Hi Rainbow,i am so sorry that your going thouh such a tough time just now.:) .Is it possible that any family/friends could help you or even take the kids for a bit to give you a chance to get your head round things?, evenif someone could watch them for a few hours,just to give you some time out.

You may be noticing an increase in your ocd thoughts etc,this is just because stress aggrivates the ocd.Take time to think about what to do next to make you and your kids happy.

I am sure your kids know you are there for them,it will be hard especially on the younger ones at first to understand whats going on,but they will bounce back,just keep giving them lots of cuddles and keep telling them how much you love them and reassure them that things will be ok,try to keep everything as close as to their usual routine as possible,keep them going to school,playing with friends after school etc.

It may be a good idea to let your kids school know the situation so that the teachers will be able to also provide them with extra support and will keep an extra eye out on them to ensure they are ok.

And try to look after yourself,if you are finding things hard to cope with dont be scared to speak out to family and friends,i am sure they would rather you said to them so they can offer you support and help that you may need just now.Also,speak to your doctor as well about what is going on just now to keep them in the picture.

Give yourself time to adjust to this,and a good place to go about what to do next regarding finances etc would be your local Citizens Advice Bureau,they can provide you with with support and all the information you need regarding these issues.You will find the phone number and address for you local CAB,in your local phone book.Take care.Keep posting,this is a difficult time for you and we will do our best to support you through this.

Love ittykxxx :)
