Is there anyone out there that understands what im going through?? People mention OCD about how they clean their house or how they do certain things and they laugh about it. But when you really suffer from OCD and i mean really struggle, its not funny at all. Its very difficult to deal with.
That being said, I have OCD but its not with cleaning or washing my hands. Its actually something i do with my throat and mouth over and over and its very exhausting and hard to stop. It always comes up really bad when im really stressed. I havent worked in the past 3 years, been a stay at home mom for 3 years and im just starting a new job next week and putting my kids in daycare. So my OCD is HORRIBLE right now. I woke up this morning and my whole neck and throat muscles are so sore. I have tension headaches every single day because i do these actions over and over all day long. Its also embarassing because i also do motions over and over with my mouth until it feels right and now that im stressed out, i do this "thing" more than i dont do it. Its just awful. I wish i could just STOP!!!!!!!!
Is there anyone out there who understands what im going through and can help me? I can't do this anymore! I want to take back control and not have these things be a apart of my life anymore. This is something i been struggling with since i was really little. Its moved from one thing to the next. When i was little, it started with everything had to be tight. My shoes, my belt, ponytails. And even tho it would hurt me, i had to have them as tight as i could possible get them. And i mean like im 8 years old and pulling my shoe laces so tight that they are snapping.If my feet could move in my shoes i would start bawling out of frustration. Its moved from that to other weird things like pushing on my teeth till they felt right (Weird i know but if could explain it, i probably wouldnt be doing it!) Then it moved to certain lines had to be lined up a certain way. Like the seam on my socks couldnt touch my pinky toe so i would pull them at a diagnol. The seam on my underwear had to be tight just really weird shit.
I was just hoping someone could help me. I want to fix this! Whatever it takes.
Thank you in advance and please dont poke fun.
