back again to my favourite ocd self help spot
Hello, everyone I have been using this healthboard since 2004, and i am definetely not in doubt anymore when i read some of my older posts, that i still suffer with today, anyway today i suffer mainly from feeling like i forgot something or a thought slips my mind , or i just need to remember something such as anything like an actors name or a familiar face "who does it look like"? and i even have an obsession that i must not have ocd an must be something else because i believe ocd is more of an individual case and they cant really explain it "perfectly" in order for me to say well yes thats me , such as this remembering part of it i dont see it in ocd books so i say to myself oh it must be something else, anyways i believe that it is an ocd characteristic, forgetting something (the obsession) and trying to remember ( the compulsion) and a dreadful feeling until i can remember and cant focus on anything else . can anyone help me to agree that this is ocd? especially when it significantly interferes with my life. other then that i obsess about old debts or things i did to people when i use to suffer from alchol addiction (sober 18 months now) as well as worrying about illness , or childhood memorys ( continuously intrusive) thanks for listening .. i just started taking cipralex and i am gonna start cbt next month , i am holding a fulltime job currently but it can be tough at times when your mind tortures you... take care
