Re: The Worst Thing About Having Ocd Is......

LOL! And a plan to cover changes in that plan. And one to cover that.

Oh yeah... and lists. Am I the only one who writes just about everything down? Go over the list and rewrite it?. Arranging items on the list several ways?

Re: The Worst Thing About Having Ocd Is......

And, boy, doesn't the world cave in when things don't go according to the plan!

Nyxie, you're not alone. I make lists, tear them up, make more lists, and then get sick of everything on the list.

I HAVE to rent movies in threes. If I want more than three, it can't be 4 or 5, they have to be divisible by 3. So it's 3, 6 or 9!

doing special things or having to do important things (study for exams, take exams, hold down a job, being intimate with a girlfriend or boyfriend) while having awful, annoying, irritating OCD thoughts to ruin the moment or make things harder to concentrate on.

Re: The Worst Thing About Having Ocd Is......

Having a bad day and being stuck with the same thoughts over and over again...

...Having a good day interrupted by worrying about the thought process returning.

I completely agree with Balance. That is what I hate the most.

Re: The Worst Thing About Having Ocd Is......

*Not being in control of your thoughts!*
The lists, the feeling like I MUST make the list NOW then having to make ANOTHER list because I failed to plan what I actually wanted to put on the list to begin with and MISSED SOMETHING. Oddly enough I never USE the list...for anything.
The URGENT need to do something NOW! Well I'll be damned maybe I don't actually WANT to!
The anxiety that accompanies the urgent need to go along with the compulsion.

Re: The Worst Thing About Having Ocd Is......

The need to plan EVERY single detail of my life out, and the anxiety that comes if something doesn't work out according to my plan.

Having to live my life by the clock(I do certain things at certain times of the day..I hate even being a few minutes off!!)

Doing something that you enjoy only to be interrupted by the OCD thoughts screaming at me in my head.

Ugh, thank god I found this forum! You guys know how it is!
