Hello I've never posted here before I'm Sammie
My ocd used to be bad not too bad but I'd spend quite a few minutes flipping on and off a light switch, and turning on and off taps, washing my hands every minute I got therapy and medication and it got better, but the medications they put me on made me depressed so I am off them I seem to be okay, maybe getting a bit worse, but the intrusive thoughts are really bad, I can't relax they are always there, and I start freaking out, I don't know how to deal with them.
Also I don't know if it has to do with ocd, but can it cause delusions?
I don't see my psych till the 23rd I think. I just hope I remember to tell him about this.

xoxo
Sammie

I'm very sorry,a differenbt form of ocd has massively impaired my life,i don't really see how meds can help personaly,certainly not anti-depressants,I don't personaly believe the chemical theories,although some could reduce a little of the associated anxiety,my therapist recommended green tea and meditation/deep breathing for this purpose

. I don't know of it's potential to cause delusions,but any high level of stress might have the potential to, My mother is pretty bad with anxiety at the mo. and she feels as though she's having delusions,it's only a feeling though,she isn't in reality,maybe it's just a feeling for you too,or could you maybe elaborate?

I'm sorry to hear that your ocd has been so bad. No I don't believe meds help, well I think they help a little, most of it comes from working on it yourself. Does the green tea and deep breathing help?

Well I have another thing wrong with me so it could be linked to that.
You said stress can have the potential to cause it, its probably stress for me. Thanks.

The deep breathing will definitely help,deep and slow inhalation,slow exhalation,a good relaxation link is here...damn when I included the link it gets marked as spam,pm me if you want the link for a relaxation/meditation 'track' .Yes green tea will too. As will exercise,exercise releases natural feel good hormones as well as burning stress related chemicals.

I have heard of delusions under very high stress levels.

By the way like your nail art!

I'll try that. I'll pm you then thanks.

Well I guess it's not a delusion because if it was then I wouldn't realize that, but something like that, maybe just paranoia, idk it doesn't matter.

Thank you very much, I never really have much confidence in it.

xoxo
