  2. Hey guys!

    I hope you’re all doing ok :)

    I was triggered today and although I managed to face the trigger, I feel guilty about how I did it. What I mean is that my 9 year old neighbour triggered me and I got angry and told him to get out of the room. I shouldn’t have been so rude - it’s a kid after all. I know I overreacted - it’s because I have been very frustrated. Anyways I feel like I should apologise for being rude..

  4. Anonymous said: Is it possible to have anxiety triggered OCD? Because I have a ton of the symptoms of OCD, but a lot of them seem to be related to anxiety for me (I have GAD and social anxiety so...) and I was wondering are they related or do my compulsions just cause anxiety separate from my GAD? I'm really confused.....

    Hello!
    I’m so terribly sorry it took me so long answer your question. I have to admit that I just didn’t know what to say. I think that there is such a possibility that you could suffer from both these disorders - from what I read they coexist quite often. It would be a good idea to make an appointment with a specialist.
    Once again, I’m very sorry it took me so long
    Have a nice day!

    It’s a great read… I’ve read it with my psychologist when I was in therapy and now I read it on my own when I need a refresher…

    Dr. Schwartz teaches that OCD is a medical disease which causes obsessions…

    Obsessions come beyond our control 
Compulsions is what we can control

    Instead of doing a compulsion, he recommends following his four step method of managing these obsessions:

    1. ReLabel

    2. ReAttribute

    3. ReFocus

    4. ReValue

    Every time an obsession intrudes into your mind…

    Relabel it… That was an OCD thought…

    Then ReAttribute it… These obsessions are from a medical disease, not me…

    Next ReFocus…get your attention off that obsessional thought by doing an activity you like for 15 min…

    Finally ReValue…that obsession says nothing about me, it’s mental garbage worth ignoring :)

But that those are just "reasons that sound good to us", so we believe them. I don't know what to say... I /have/ a reason for not wanting to touch things other people touch - there could be dangerous germs. But apparently that's not good enough?

    Dearest Anon, I don’t normally say this to peeps, but seriously… Do not listen to your mother. She is very incorrect. As a person suffering from OCD and germaphobia, I can tell you that it’s okay to not want to touch things. It’s not just a habit. It’s how our minds work. There are a multitude of reasons why it happens, but it’s okay. It’s perfectly acceptable to not want to touch something that other people touch. There could be dangerous germs. You’re absolutely right. And that is good enough.
