I have things my mind subconsciously obsesses over... They bring me great distress and I constantly look for reassurance as a compulsion. I first noticed this when I was 10... Im now 21, and still the same obsessive thoughts torment me... And so often I think I've fully recovered and am saved... Low and behold I find myself in the shit again and again... Just when I think I've made so much progress, these thoughts torment me again... Why does this keep happening to me I don't fucking get it, I just want this over...

Hi Charlie. What kind of the things do you obsess about?

Have you sought out help from a therapist or psychiatrist for these obsessive thoughts? If you haven’t yet maybe now it’s time. xo, j
