How Do I Overcome OCD? Please Help
I won't bore you with all the ridiculous thoughts and rituals that I go through everyday. I know you're all going through the same. I think my OCD is worse than most people's. Can someone who has perhaps kicked their OCD rituals give me some advice on how to do it? I spend a lot of time on the internet. I end up downloading things over and over again if I don't hit every key the right way. What is the right way? What does that even mean? Certain times on the clock I decide is bad. 1:01, 3:20, 7:11, 10:10. Their bad for stupid reasons I won't go into. I can't listen to certain songs I want to listen to because they may remind me of sick thoughts. Take Chuck Berry. I like his music. One of his songs was played in "Pulp Fiction." Pulp Fiction is a very violent movie. So I tell myself I can't listen to his music. Things like that are what I'm going through. I'm on medication for illnesses that I don't have which is a whole other story. I know the medication has nothing to do with my OCD because I was struggling with this before I ever started taking the medication. I don't think taking medication for OCD is an option because I don't think it will be covered by my medical plan, and honestly, I don't think medication will solve my OCD crisis. I just need some advice from some people here who are going through something similar to help me. I have so many problems and the OCD is like a weight around my neck. I feel like I'm losing my mind. Any help would be appreciated.
