Re: disturbing visions with ocd
Yeah, I had a breakdown yesterday in my driving class. I have a driver's theory class before I go practice driving, and after everybody left and it was just me and the instructor, she asked me what I wanted to do because I'm still petrified about going out on the road. I just started sobbing because the stupid OCD makes driving sooo overwhelming and I think about all the ways that I could possibly hurt or kill somebody by me not being careful enough. I also felt bad because my mom would be paying the instructor for me just practicing in the parking lot and not advancing and the instructor would be wasting her time with me not willing to take the next step. So, she dropped me off at my house, and I called my mom, bawling, and she said that I could stop the driving lessons, and just practice in the parking lot for as long as I like with my dad. I hate that OCD holds me back in doing simple, everyday things...
