Don't know where to put this as I'm not BP...but...... Apart from feeling apathetic mostly everyday & unable to do anything productive, I spend hours browsing/shopping online (but NOT actually buying anything). I create a profile on various sites, comparison shop, save dozens of things on Wishlists and keep going back wanting to buy stuff, but I don't. Can be everything from furniture, rugs, bath products, pillows, artwork, clothing... It's a wierd addiction because I'm like the opposite of impulsive. I don't have the budget to buy the stuff I want (and luckily by sheer willpower, I don't). I waste hours saving stuff on my Wishlists (even putting 6 or so items in my Amazon cart) but I don't actually buy. Anyone else do this? What is this a symptom of? (Edit: I actually often go back to buy 1 thing I saved 2 months prior, just to find it's out of stock & I get gutted)
Marie32 posted a topic in Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder - Click Here RepeatedlyHi guys. I'm newish. Still learning the format of how this site works. So I have definitely been engaging in some compulsions/addictive behavior today. My therapist calls my "brand" of OCD "Just Right" OCD. For me it most often comes up while shopping-grocery shopping, clothes shopping-you name it. I feel a compulsion to look at every single option of an item & making the final decision (or almost any decision in life) is agonizing. I have been known to spend hours grocery shopping & been found sitting in the aisles, reading labels. Today it is online bra shopping. I have been on all day & HAVEN'T BOUGHT ANYTHING! I'm tired, my back hurts, I have shit to do, but I can't stop. Can anybody relate? Suggestions?
