I, too, suffer from intrusive thoughts, obsessions and cannot stop ruminating. Try and focus on the present moment and maybe try mindfulness. Easier said than done - especially for those of us who also have other mental health problems.

You currently taking any meds and do they work?

As I have also suffered from severe depression, chronic anxiety and OCD most of my life, I have tried most meds and, sadly, none works. I also have complicated grief, having lost my only son in December 2010, and definitely nothing helps that. Being a Buddhist explains things, but doesn't help them.

Sorry to hear about your son. What meds have you tried?
