Anyone ever had it?

Causes for my broblem:
1. Being in abusive relationships for the last 6 years or more. I don't know exactly how long.
2. Having extreme ocd in the last 2 years with cleaning constantly in free time
3. Chronic insomnia
4. Extreme stess

Than, this wriithen above resulted in some kind of burnout.

I feel to tired to fight with it. Don't know what to do.

It will result in burnout thats a no brainer. Im thinking that professionals dont account the whole picture.
They take it from one or two angles and categorise it as 'stress' in your case BR
Have you heard of adrenal fatigue syndrome? Dont be scared it sounds worrying but it may be why people cannot recover in an expected time, they reach their tipping point. Im looking into this. reading about it. Seems just need a lot more time and a lot of serenity in your life to be able to get well :hug:

I wonder if you were to look at your situations in terms of quality of life, and if you were to take action on everything that is having a negative impact on you, just how much better your Mental Health would be :) It could be the difference from a negative spiral to a positive one :)

Yes I always feel mh professionals don't get it. I know it is complicated... They always try to figure out is this or that when can be both.. Just an example of how they approach the problem.

I think the same. Thanks.

I will read about adrenal fatigue syndrome. Thanks again

Its really quite difficult to get out of an abusive relationship.
Its near impossible to stop being OCD by willpower alone.
Insomnia can be mind or body related and if only they could figure it out across the globe.
Stress is personal, subjective. Pretty sure shes trying.

If you think of the impact OCD has on your quality of life, together with its association (task vs reasons), it may be enough to invoke a change, or the start of a process of change...

Correct @OCDguy It has a huge impact on the lives of its sufferers (I know)
Its not one you can remove easily. The breather comes wth knowing its out of your hands and not you fault because youre 'not trying'

I have problems with allergies and low immune system. What bothers me most is itching skin... So my house must be always clean and regularly desinfected otherwise I am going nuts from itching. I m not taking yet medication for allergies

I will ask my doctor to putt me on sleep most time of the day with medication for 2 weeks_ 1 month and see how I will feel after I rest. I think I need this.

I dont think sleeping in the day is a good idea nor meds for sleep.
You can get too much sleep. It can worsen depression, causes all kinds of imbalances in the body too.
Sleep meds dont allow rem sleep. You wont feel right plus are addictive.
Be careful BR x
