Hello ,
i just realized my my OCD is back. I can't tell it completely OCD but

I realized, i am thinking about same topic over and over again

i just discussed about medications with a person 21 days ago , and that person criticized me for using medications for long time , i took it too serious ( normally i wouldnt care people's opinion , i do it anything on my way but this person is valuable for me)
and i felt like he is blaming me ( i know that person wants me to be happy, he is worried about using psychatric pills so long)
and i felt like i must prove that i need pills , it isnt my choice or i do not expect everything from pills
i use because i need

i find myself thinking about this topic everyday few times, i even talked to that person , i said i am sensitive about this topic , dont talk about it

but it didnt stop i find myself thinking about this dicussion every night when i am at bed

i guess it isnt about discussion , words, person. It is about my perfectionist obsessive way of thinking.
Even i plan everything in my head, what to say him what will he say
i organise everything in my mind
my brain doesnt close this topic , my brain doesnt forget it and get on it's way

i will talk to that person and make more discussion , i hope it can help going through obsession helps ( i heard and read it on articles)

but my brain just cant forget, it was just a discussion , his opinion etc.

i really dont know how it became a obsessive thought ...

any kind of method in order to control this ?(the irony is motivation of getting control on anything is part of my obsessive behaviour ... lol)

i really dont want to use OCD medication again because it makes me lazy and low energy(low motivation) person.

i will start taking theraphy soon but
OCD is a repeating disorder and i dont want to find myself taking theraphy or using OCD medication again and again

i need to get used to live with it.

any suggestion?

pfft! Who cares? Never skimp on the quality of your life as accordance to another's opinion.

exactly you are right, but problem is thoughts arent on my control :/
i just want same as you said, "dont care"
but even if u dont want to care somehow, obsessive thoughts repeats itself sometimes

No, you misunderstood my bluntness.

Yes, I would care about having those repetitive thoughts, but I don't believe that someone elses' opinion on what makes a positive change in my life should interfere to the point of obsession.

But, if I were you I'd probably be thinking the same.

Yep I still have thoughts that keep coming back again and again and won't let up for a while, all I can do is let them run their course until they're ready to quit until the next time. :grouphug:

i try to do same :) , i wish i get rid of them completely but i guess it isnt possible , somehow controlling and managing them is possible and key point.
i have never tried to manage them and live with them, because i didnt realize i had ocd for long years , i realized 3-4 months ago
i am new to club :)
