Anyone here with OCD get so frustrated they throw or break things or hit themselves?

Anyone here with OCD get so frustrated they throw or break things or hit themselves?

Just curious because I have Panic Disorder and OCD and I've been assured by my therapists that I don't have anything else going on I'm just dealing with a lot of frustration but on occasion I've gotten so mad at myself for having a hard time with my obsessions and compulsions I've broken things I was using, or thrown a water bottle, or hit myself in the face. One time I clawed at my face in frustration. It happens when the OCD is really annoying, other times might be when people tell me how my disorder effects them and I get mad and feel guilty. I start to get really frustrated and a lot of times angry...

Anyone else get this way? My therapists have said the OCD and Panic can be extremely frustration disorders and some people throw things when they're mad and they don't even have to deal with the burden of an Anxiety disorder.

They say it's not a form of self injury or anything like that, because first of all, I don't plan on doing it. It just happens when I get frustrated. Also immediately afterwards I'm scared of my behavior and that I can be going crazy of I have something serious wrong with me and I want to tell therapists where as most people who self injury don't want to share, and do it for totally different reasons. I will do it in front of whoever is around most of the time and I don't try to hide it. Also, after I do it I always think it's stupid that I just did it. Also, everything I do is fairly minor, I mean I've never really left a permant mark on myself. As far as hitting other objects, I have thrown a water bottle across the room into things, or one time I broke a railing, and another I broke a razor because my OCD was so frustrating when I was shaving.

Am I the only one who doesn't do a great job dealing with the frustration of OCD?

I can relate, I get so mad with these thoughts in my head that i hit myself in the head sometimes, i self injure myself as well..It's so frustrating dealing with a mind that I can't control so i just feel so angry and i lose control and hit myself or hurt myself or cuss I'm not sure what to tell you to help you with that because i struggle thru it as well its hard for me to control my anger when im so angry, you are not alone, maybe when u get so mad take deep breaths and say im not going to let you win OCD maybe that will help you or go get a pillow and hit the pillow and scream in the pillow instead of hitting yourself, i should take my own advise ...take care of u, God bless u always

When my ocd was at it's worst I would constantly hit my head and rock myself. I would bite myself and dig my nails into my skin as and attempt to counteract the ocd, I still bite a little.

Re: Anyone here with OCD get so frustrated they throw or break things or hit themselves?

I tend to dig my nails into my leg when Im frustrated, which has been said before. Also I do throw things, yesterday while trying to eat my supper I threw my fork across the room. Sometimes when Im frustrated I will break things that belong to other people, without being able to control myself. A couple of days ago I cut up one of my little sisters beany babies. This leaves me embarrassed and feeling extremely guilty, but also mad at myself that I can't control myself like most other people can.

Re: Anyone here with OCD get so frustrated they throw or break things or hit themselves?

look, you cant control you mind but you can control your behavior.... look up the book "brain-lock". And if you can, try to look at it this way, calm down when your about to freak over your tricky mind... and face it with determination...... if you get angry, it's won over you. be better than it... you know it helped me to identify when an obsession was coming on and then tell ocd that it wasnt going to get me this time, that I wasnt a sucker and that I wasnt scared of it. The obsession had no power over me, and all it took was patience each time, and a frown of determined self-control and power.....I was it's master I told myself, it listens to me. "cower before your master" type thing. I was ready for it before it hit each time, and I dominated it. YOu can too. Remember you are the master of your behavior, if you let the obsession make a cowardly advance, and see that ocd is just bluffing, and not respond to the bluff.... every time until the thought passes....comes and goes.....comes and goes...... until gone.... you'll have more power over it. remember the thought is just a mind bluff. God bless.

Re: Anyone here with OCD get so frustrated they throw or break things or hit themselv

Sometimes I get so damn frustrated over the stupidest things that I hit myself, over and over as hard as I can, in the head. Or slap myself across the face or bite my lip as hard as possible. I don't know if this is some crazy disorder or me just not being able to handle my emotions properly. I'm just trying to find out for once why I do it and it's not exactly the easiest thing to google.

I don't do it in front of people but I do feel really stupid after I do it and I obviously want to find out about why I do it and find a better outlet, so as far as I know I'm not about to slit my wrists or anything.

I just wanna know why I do this. And why it makes me feel so much better to pound my hand against my head 30 times when I get upset, like I'm punishing myself...
