  1. thanks for the reassurance, guys. helps to hear it sometimes
  2. therapist agrees that I most likely have pure obsessional ocd of all the sub-types

  3. one of my obsessions is over the labels I use to define myself. my sexuality (which, I know, is it's own sub-type within the framework of OCD), my subcultures, my hobbies. I feel like I can't call myself a nerd, or a writer. as if I somehow am not qualified. or I'm using the word wrong. or it just doesn't apply to me the way it applies to other people. labels eat at me, I can't stop thinking about them, but they all feel wrong. nothing fits, nothing's right. but I need to know what is right. I need to sort myself into boxes so I make sense. so I'm not chaos made flesh. I feel like if I can't define myself, with certainty, that I'm not a person. does anyone else have this?
  4. had a phone call with my parents that went well but left me feeling sad and frustrated. talking it out with a friend right now I'm tapering, too. I was misdiagnosed and given a med that doesn't work for what I'm now told I have. hope yours goes ok!
  5. I'm starting to recognize my own positive attributes our rescue cat's learning to trust us my best friend told me she misses me last night, and how everything feels better when we're together <3
  6. web
  7. finally got a call from the new resident psych I'll be seeing. she gave me a same-day appointment. so feeling a bit hopeful I've always had to work hard in school too. it's frustrating, for sure
  8. I've talked to my therapist about it, as my bff does it regularly and it helps her a lot with her PTSD
  9. I used to want to, but I think I'd get too emotionally involved. I'm highly empathetic and would probably end up a wreck
  10. my old therapist equated hyperbole with flat-out lies, so any joke I made just seemed to make her mistrustful
  11. angry. hurt. upset that I have to pretend to be neither
  12. ugh sorry to hear that I've been trying to let myself tic freely, even if I'm in public. because when I try not to have tics, my tension grows. so I'm waving my hands, talking to myself, jerking my head... it doesn't look neurotypical, but it's actually helping?
  13. you don't ever have to forgive someone, even if they love you. you deserve to be safe, more than she deserves to not feel guilt over hurting you. I know that's not well-phrased, but I guess I'm trying to say that it isn't your fault if she feels guilty. it IS her fault if you feel unsafe.
  14. I really relate to a lot of your post. I don't worry about the government watching me, but the universe/god(s)/deity (my agnosticism doesn't make the fear any less intense unfortunately). the rest, yes, I didn't know ocd counted for me either. I think a lot of us are told a lot of bs about our dxes. but you aren't a bad person for having intrusive thoughts, and you don't deserve them
  15. I may be done with group therapy. my perspective is so different from most people in there. I end up feeling alienated the whole time
