See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Anyone deal with OCD in the form of obsessive compulsive thoughts? What sorts of thoughts do you struglle with? Is it debilitating for you or can you function through them? What do you do to cope with the thoughts?
I have a ton of ridiculous thoughts! I constantly think a sheriff is going to come to my door and kick us out of our home (we are in a rental home and up to date on rent, I am just being ridiculous). So I freak out every time I hear a car door and even worse when the door makes a noise form the screen door hitting it or the bell rings etc. Ugh. I have some thoughts that are so debilitating, I am afraid if I say them out loud that they will happen. Like I wanna tell my therapist so I can learn how to cope through the thoughts but am afriad if I do, they will wonder why I even have those thoughts and then those thoughts will come true. I am convinced everyone hates me. I am also scared that I am killing myself because I am overweight (I weaigh 250lbs) but I have 0 motivation to work out because I am sure everyone will be disgusted by me and make fun of me. I am convinced that everywhere I go, people are whispering about me. I have more, but there's some. It is to the point I don't like leaving my home. I am even jumpy when my phone rings, I have a panic attack.
