Sweetheart. You are not your thoughts. Are you on an anti OCD medication? :hug:

Sexual activity is about reassurance as much as anything else. Maybe you need to self hug this way?

Hi thanks for your reply They just feel so real I am on a lot of medication buspirone,mirtrazipine and sertraline
well if you have been on those medications longer than 10 weeks its safe to say they are NOT working for you! you may need to keep trying something else. your anxiety and looping thoughts are out of control. im not a firm beleiver in therapy. i think it can help but when we enter depression and anxiety parts of out brain literally SHUT DOWN! theres suppose to be messages from the prefrontal cortex and hippocampus to make sense of these thoughts as harmless and there better things to think about and it calms down and shuts off the amydala the fear part of the brain.... something aint working right for you and im in the same boat. keep trying combos of antidepressants until you click with one or try natural suppliments. i know this to be true because i right now am back in severe depression and anxiety and it a mess....however many years ago when my anxiety and rumination and intrusive thoughts started i thought it was game over. that my brain is warped and wired to be crazy and thats it its a rap it was bad. but i tried my first ssri celexa and it really was life changing. ssris dont just block serotonin from being absorbed they ALSO do cause brain cells to rebuild and regenerate in the hippocampus. thats why it takes a few weeks for depression to life with these drugs because they also work and fix ur brain by rebuilding new cells. so after a few weeks i was back to myself again i still had social anxiety but i didnt have scary looping depressing thoughts! now im on the hunt for something else to work again... they fizzled out in my case deff tell ur phych ur medcation does not work...
