Thanks, Hopeful. It went well. Today I can look back at it and feel foolish about being so anxious on Sun. But the tension WAS REAL. And I had to take a klonipin and go with somebody -together is always better.
How are you doing?
I hope things are getting better, Shver.

I had my meds changed a few weeks ago.
I think there was some improvement.
Have been with a new therapist for awhile and was actually
doing well until a week ago.
My biggest issue is that everything I read or do, I try to interpret as some message and
it is usually negative. I know with OCD I need to force myself to be exposed to whole
sorts of negative triggers. The problem is that I want to feel the habituation effect and it is not always there.

Glad the book helps!

Have you tried relaxation techniques or mindfulness? Sometimes it helps to slow down the racing thoughts. Or a tranquilizer, like Xanax.

Keep climbing, the tension is always real. That's the whole problem with it.

Keep climbing, I can relate to that. Had to pay a Hhiva call on Motzei Shabbos which was also giving me butterflies. I came home feeling pretty gloomy. Nichum Aveilim is a tough one.

I am feeling a little better.
Unfortunately, I just acquired a new obsession with dreams.
I keep feeling a compulsion to do hadavas chalom.
It is driving me crazy

My dream obsession is back again and I have strong compulsion to
do hadavs chalom. My therapist says that it just feeds the anxiety.
I am feeling depressed and hopeless.

Shver, sorry to hear that things are so tough.
I feel pretty hopeless, as well. I'm on meds, some therapy. I exercise, try to eat and sleep well, reduce pressure, do enjoyable things, and I'm still hanging on by a thread sometimes. There ARE better days, b"h. and that is what keeps me going- I HOPE that tomorrow will be better.

How is everyone doing? i know i haven't posted in a really long time (I'm thinking a year or more!) but I would love to reopen the conversations here on Frumsupport. I know I would benefit and I'm sure others would be helped, as well. Those who kept posting - I don't want to name anyone because of fear that I will mistakenly skip someone- kol hakavod to you!

How's life???
Missed you guys a lot!
What have you all been up to?
Has anyone been doing better lately?

Hi....I just popped in and saw this thread. Having a rough time with impulse control (in regards to suicide) but so far I'm treading above water. Been working like nuts to help my kids succeed in the world. It is working but at a great price. I'm tired and worn out and feel ragged. I hope others are doing better than me.

Oy mouse so sorry
Is there anything you can do for yourself?
A staycation day at home?
A day at a spa?
What do women do to relax and rejuvenate?

I'm in a bad place emotionally
I don't think anyone would ever want to marry someone like me.

I'm a loner. I'm afraid of people. I often end up watching inappropriate things online.
Lately I've been finding it very hard to not use electronic devices on Shabbos

I'm depressed and anxious and having trouble focusing at work.

Who would ever want to marry someone as flawed at me

I'm soooo soooo sad.

I don't know where to turn

Sorry to hear things are not going well for you, Momo.
Maybe you could join some shiur or learn with someone on Shabbos.
That way you will interact with people and also not have the need for using electronic devices.
