    Is this dissociation?

    Hello! I’ve had (social) anxiety as well as OCD for years now, and I’m finally getting my life back. It’s great, but I’ll still have serious mood shifts where I’m super happy and then go down to feeling depressed super quick. I can have a lot of breakdowns, where I don’t think straight and am in...

    Intrusive Thoughts?

    Does any one else experience anxiety around their partner? Sometimes when he’s away I feel fine. I don’t have anxiety. I still have these thoughts about if I love him or not. I still have compulsions. But I sometimes want him to go away so I can not have the anxiety and obsessions I have around...

    Anyone dealt with potentially dangerous compulsions?

    Hi everyone, I’m living with OCD with harm-related obsessions and I’m concerned because the compulsions I’m doing to “correct” a situation may be in and of themselves dangerous. For example, one obsession is worrying about hitting a pedestrian while driving, so consequently I (try to) check...
